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 short and the medium rides converge at a tea stop Hurstpierpoint for the last check point, then share the same route on return to the Horsham. The long ride (108km/67.5miles) goes towards Goodwood with a tea stop/check point at West Dean Gardens.

Introduction to Group Riding for non-Members

[ FULLY BOOKED - more sessions planned soon. Please register your interest via  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ]

Do you enjoy riding a bike, but maybe a little nervous about cycling in a group? Horsham Cycling will be holding free 'Group Riding for Novices' sessions on Saturday 25 August and Saturday 8 September. Rides will cover around 20 miles on our quieter lanes, at a modest pace - we will not lose anyone!

All we ask is that you are already able to ride at least 10 miles confidently and safely; that you have a roadworthy road bike or hybrid; and that you wear a cycling helmet. For now we can only take those aged 18 or over, although sessions for younger riders may be offered in future.

Sessions will run from 09.30-11.30, starting and finishing at the bandstand by the Conservatory Café, Horsham Park.

Group size will need to be limited for safety reasons, so if you would like to join a session, or have any questions, please email Dave Scott at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , making clear which date you prefer.

 

The Club’s 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, I’ve 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.
