Benefits

Bicyling is a fun, easy way to stay Fit

Cycling is a low impact exercise that is easier on your joints than running or other high impact aerobic exercises.  You can increase your overall health through cycling on a regular basis.  Cycling works your blood vessels, heart and lungs to strengthen your overall fitness level.

Membership is a Great Value

Cost is $15 a year for an individual or $20 for a family membership. Also, you will receive a 10% discount on accessories at area bicycle shops with your HBC member card.

Ride Leader and Ride Participant Training Workshops

Do you want to learn the safe way to ride in a group?   We can show you how. Are you interested in becoming a Ride Leader?  We provide Cycling 101 workshops, Ride Leader Training and special training for sweeps. Ride Leaders can take advantage of CPR and First Aid Training and get reimbursed $75 for taking the certification course.

Bike Maintenance Clinic

HBC offers an annual series of clinics in January. You can learn basic maintenance skills such as how to clean your bike, fix a flat, chain & brake maintenance and a pre-ride safety checklist.

Organized and scheduled bike rides

HBC offers bike rides with a knowledgeable Ride Leader who plans the ride and provides direction for riders of varying abilities.  The riding categories are social, D, C, C+, B, B+ and A - with D being the easiest and A being the most challenging.

Web information and forums

Our website contains a wealth of information about the club rides, skill levels, special events, forums and more.  Forums are a communications tool members can use to talk and share ideas with other members.
