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

Coronavirus update

Whilst coronavirus continues to be present, rides will be advertised in advance on the club’s Facebook page.  We encourage rides to be in groups of 6 or 8, with a strict upper limit of 12.  The group size will be set by the ride coordinator and we ask that riders respect their decision. Riders should not turn up at the pump without first having signed up to a ride on the club’s Facebook page.

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.

In winter average speeds will be reduced to accommodate the road and weather conditions, and people’s fitness.

The Brioche ride

Average speed of 15-16mph for about 40 miles

The Civilised ride

Average speed of 17-18mph for about 50-60 miles

The Nifty ride

Average speed of 19+mph for about 60 miles

 

All rides meet at the pump on Histon village green.

Midweek rides

Wednesday 6:45pm at the pump

We run a pace line ride every week throughout the year and an additional pace line or chain gang every Thursday in the summer. The rides follow the same route of 26 miles and dependent on numbers, split into two to four different speed groups.

These rides are training sessions open to HIBC members only. During the summer months, these are ‘drop’ rides – riders unable to hold the pace will not be waited for and will have to make their own way back.
