Founded in 2014 and inspired by its Edwardian era namesake, HIBC prides itself on being a friendly and inclusive cycling club, welcoming cyclists of all abilities and serving the local community.
In the few years since our inception we have steadily grown the membership, allowing us to put on regular rides aimed at a range of abilities. These include ‘taster’ rides, for those new to group cycling, Sunday club runs, monthly outings to local cafes for tea and cake, and faster-paced training rides. Have a look at our rides page for more information.
We also help to organise an annual cycling event, in association with Friends of Histon & Impington Recreation. It’s called The Strawberry 50 and is a fun community cycle event with a choice of routes for all.
HIBC club rides are scheduled through the week to give members a variety of riding and training opportunities to suit their fitness and aspirations. For those who want to enjoy a relaxed, steady and chatty weekend social ride, our ‘Brioche’ ride goes out for about 2 1/2 hours on quieter local roads. At the other end of the spectrum our mid-week ’Style’ ride tears around a well-worn 25 mile loop at an average 25 mph. We ride year round, unless it’s snowy and icy.
We’re always keen to welcome new members. If you would like to join us for a ride just turn up at the pump by the Green in Histon on a Sunday morning at 08:30 and we’ll show you the ropes.View all our rides
