From taster rides to fast-paced team rides and cake-fueled cafe cycles, we have a ride for everyone.

Our rides

We run a selection of rides. Our club rides are on Sunday mornings, leaving the pump on Histon Village Green at 08:30, all year round. Our midweek rides are on Wednesday at 18:45. These also run throughout the year, and are for club members only.

Sunday club rides

At the heart of any good cycling club is a weekly club ride. We have our regular club rides every Sunday morning, with two to three groups going out at different speeds, so we are as inclusive as possible.

Our Sunday club ride is the perfect opportunity to meet other members – we pride ourselves on being a social and welcoming club, open to riders of all abilities.

Sundays, 8:30am, all year round.

The Brioche ride

Average speed of 15mph for about 40 miles

The Civilised ride

Average speed of 17mph for about 50-60 miles

The Nifty ride

Average speed of 19mph for about 60 miles


Our groups aim to ride within ±1mph of the average speed.  In winter average speeds will be reduced to accommodate the road and weather conditions, and people’s fitness.

All rides meet at the pump on Histon village green.

Midweek rides

Wednesday 6:45pm at the pump

We run a pace line or chain gang ride every week throughout the year. The ride follows the same 42km (26 mile) route.  We ride in groups of 4-12 (max) with two to four different speed groups depending on numbers.

These training session rides are open to HIBC members only. During the summer months, these are ‘drop’ rides – whilst the aim is to ride around as a group, riders unable to hold the pace will not be waited for and will have to make their own way round.


Summer: 25+mph. Winter: 22+mph


Summer: 22-23mph. Winter: 20mph


Summer: 19-20mph. Winter: up to 18mph
