Histon & Impington Bicycle Club (HIBC) prides itself on being a friendly and inclusive cycling club. We’re based in Histon & Impington, a couple of miles North of Cambridge. We are open to novices and seasoned cyclists, and offer various bike rides for a range of abilities.
We run Sunday morning and Wednesday evening rides throughout the year.
On Sundays we usually have 2-4 groups riding out. We offer a range of speeds and distances; 40-70 miles is typical. Longer rides often include a café stop. Sunday rides are sociable and non-members are very welcome to join us for a few Sunday rides before deciding to join the club.
Our Wednesday evening rides are for training, and are open to HIBC members only. If you haven’t cycled with us before then we suggest you come along on a Sunday ride first. Experienced cyclists from other cycling clubs, on becoming HIBC members, are welcome to join these rides.
We offer women-only rides on occasional Sundays. Look out for these on our Facebook group.
Some of our members take part in road and criterium racing at local events. And others have picked up the gravel bug and are exploring local trails and racing cyclo-cross.
Take a look at our rides page for more information.
We also like to explore further afield. In the last few years we’ve run four-day tours in the UK, for both on-road and off-road cyclists. And we’ve also got our passports out and cycled in Majorca and Tenerife. We aim to have one overseas tour each year.
Our annual community cycling sportive – The Strawberry Community Cycle Event – is run in partnership with HI Friends (a Histon & Impington charity that supports wellbeing, mobility, sport and recreation). This is a fun community cycle ride for all ages with a choice of four routes from 7 miles to 56 miles.
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
‘Free Wheels East’ is the tale of cousins Jamie and Ben. They set off on an epic adventure; without know-how or training they attempt to ride bicycles on every continent. 35 countries, 3 years, near fatal accidents, life threatening illnesses, life changing experiences and no flights. This is a free HIBC event – open to all as […]
A fantastic evening of team riding and fun racing was had by about 20 HIBC club riders who got to enjoy a 2 hour track session at the Lee Valley Velodrome in May 2023. The group was split into two, and a series of chain-gang style pursuit team riding, and fun mini races was held […]
May 2023 saw Geoff, Mike, Will and Dan spend a week cycling in Mallorca. Why Mallorca? Well apart from the obvious (the weather), the island has fantastic scenery, a mix of mountainous and flat cycling, and miles of smooth tarmac. We stayed in Puerta Pollensa at the Hotel Eolo. It was well set up for […]
