Histon & Impington Bicycle Club is one of Cambridgeshire’s newest cycling clubs but with a distinguished heritage

Founded in 2014 and inspired by its Edwardian era namesake, Histon & Impington Bicycle Club (HIBC) prides itself on being a friendly and inclusive Cambridge-based cycling club, welcoming cyclists with a range of abilities and serving the local community.

We offer road rides for a range of cycling abilities. As the mainstay of any road club, Sunday club rides run throughout the year, at different speeds and distances depending on numbers. In the summer we run evening mid-week fast training rides, and welcome riders from other Cambridge cycling clubs who want to join us. We also offer slower and shorter rides for those new to club cycling in the summer months. This year we have started to offer women-only rides. Have a look at our rides page for more information.

We run a friendly time-trial series on a local course for members who would like to have a go in May and June. A few members do a little bit of road and criterium racing at local events, and a few others have picked up the gravel bug and are exploring local trails and race cyclo-cross.

We organise a training camp in Majorca in April, and relaxed cycling tours in the UK in June and September traveling between youth hostels. We hold a handful of social events each year and everyone is welcome, including non-members.

We also help to organise an annual cycling event and sportive, in association with Friends of Histon & Impington Community. It’s called The Strawberry Cycle Event and is a fun community cycle event for all ages with a choice of routes.

If you’re thinking of improving your cycling and want to try riding with a club, you can contact us here. You can stay up-to-date with what’s going on at HIBC at our Facebook group.

Our rides

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.
