Welcome to Horsham Cycling

flypass.jpg

Our club is welcoming to all types of rider, from leisure cyclist to competitive racer. Seven groups meet at the Carfax every Sunday morning, each with different speeds and distances in mind.

Horsham is surrounded by fantastic Sussex countryside and quiet roads. The club is a great way of discovering new routes, making friends and perhaps opening yourself to new cycling challenges.

You can join us for a ride or two without being a member, why not give us a try? See the rides page for more details or read the FAQ.

The Clubís annual Isle of Wight weekend is one of the highlights of the HC calendar and I think this will be the 13th visit the Club has made. Ali Bruce has made an excellent job of organising it for the last 3 years and on his retirement from the Committee, Iíve been requested to organise it again, which makes my 9th time. This weekend is always popular and is a great mix of riding and socialising. The plan is to travel on the Friday, stay two nights on the IOW and return on the Sunday.

Summer Randonee Sunday 5th August 2018

This year, for the first time, a Randonee is to be held on the above date. This is more like an Audax event rather than a reliability trial where there will be no timing.

Just complete a set course passing through one or two controls (checkpoints) on the way.

There will be a choice of two rides of approximately 65km (38 miles) with one control and 90km.(55miles) with two controls.

Water and some food will be available at these controls.

The Annual Horsham Cycling Lunch is to be held at the Roffey Park Institute on Sunday 24th June. This will be a BBQ buffet followed by dessert.

Payment should be made through the Club's website using PayPal - £18.70pp by 16th June.

This is great opportunity for members to linger and enjoy a longer moment together after the usual Sunday ride. All group leaders will finish their rides at the venue. There is plenty of space to leave the bikes and in case of uncertain weather we can be accommodated outside or inside. The venue has a licensed bar with local ales and lagers.

This is a popular event so please get your confirmation in quickly!

It's just a month until this amazing 115 mile night ride from London (Hackney) to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast which is organised by the Southwark Cyclists.

The ride is free to enter. As in previous years we are providing transport by way of a mini bus and bike van to simplify the logistics.

We leave Horsham around 4.45pm on the Saturday evening with the ride commencing around 7.45pm. The depart from Dunwich is around 8am Sunday after having a full English breakfast in the cafe by the sea, returning to Horsham late morning.

The transport cost this year is £49.

There are 18 places available (on a first come first served bases) and if you wish to part in this ride please pay via the event payment button on the  right handside of this web page.

Bike Maintenance Evening - Thursday April 5th from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the Holbrook Club in Horsham

As the cycling season is getting into full swing with the winter behind us (I hope), the club is arranging an evening bike maintenance and repair session to assist club members with the basics of how and what to check on your bike before a ride and how to deal with mechanical issues if they crop up on a ride. The format for the evening is a drop in session with a number of experts on hand to go over the basics and also answer any questions you may have.

The sessions will be closely tailored to the audience but here is a list of the sorts of things that can be covered:
