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.

Resumption of Club Rides - resume from 6th Dec 2020

I am pleased to inform you that we will be resuming the Sunday Club Rides starting next week - Sunday December 6th. These rides will follow all the previous guidelines including a maximum 6 riders per group and social distancing meeting points as issued in October which were as follows:

  • Social Riders meet at the W (Swan Walk) end of the Carfax in front of the Cook shop.
  • Inter Riders meet at the W (Swan Walk) end of the Carfax with Inter 1 in front of Fat Face and Inter 2 in front of Panino's.
  • Sporting Riders meet at the E (Bandstand) end of the Carfax with SG1 in front of the Halifax, SG2 in front of Crates and SG3 in front of Nat West.

Please go to the area designated for your selected ride group and avoid mixing with the other groups. Of course all groups should keep well away from any other gatherings and busy thoroughfares.

Rides Suspended - Lockdown in England

It is with regret but I guess not too much of a surprise that I must inform you that all official Club Rides are suspended effective immediately. This is in line with the new national restrictions being introduced as well as British Cycling's recommendations. As soon as these restrictions are lifted we will notify members of the resumption of Club Rides - fingers crossed this could be as early as 3rd December 2020.

Club Ride Meeting Points

We have noticed that it is sometimes difficult to comply with the Club's rules on social distancing for Group Riding particularly at the meeting point on Sunday mornings and therefore we have decided to change the meeting points to create more separation between the groups at the start of rides. This is critical to maximize the safety of riders and the general public and also to maintain the reputation of the Club. The new meeting points for Club rides, effective immediately, will be as follows:

Social Riders meet at the W (Swan Walk) end of the Carfax in front of the Cook Shop.

Inter Riders meet at the W (Swan Walk) end of the Carfax with Inter 1 in front of Fat Face and Inter 2 in front of Panino's.

Sporting Riders meet at the E (Bandstand) end of the Carfax with SG1 in front of the Halifax, SG2 in front of Crates and SG3 in front of the Natwest.

Please go to the area designated for your selected ride group and avoid mixing with the other groups. Of course all groups should keep well away from any other gatherings and busy thoroughfares.
