Clubruns

HCC prides itself on being an open, friendly and all inclusive club. You are welcome to try up to three rides with us but then to ride again you must join our club and also become a member of British Cycling at Ride, Silver or Gold level (categories of Bronze, Fan or Commute do not give you the correct liability cover to join a clubrun). To cater for a range of  riding experiences we have 5 speeds of ride to choose from (A to E) and so there is always a group suitable for everyone. Although,  whilst we welcome new riders, for the safety of others on a group ride we do expect you to have a basic  level road sense, confidence and awareness of others before riding with us.  Our A paced ride is our steadiest ride and our E paced ride is our quickest  ride. We have a variety of clubruns including our clubrun abroad (usually held over Easter), ladies and gentlemen only rides, evening rides, eBike rides, daytime rides, junior and youth rides and of course our very popular traditional Sunday clubrun, which is where most people start their experience of riding with us. The best place for initial contact if you are interested in joining one of our clubruns  is to email us at clubruns@holmfirthcc.com with your details. See below for more details of the rides that we organise.

Sunday and eBike Clubruns

Sunday

8:30 am D/E (summer mnths)

9:30 am D/E

(winter mnths)

9:30 am A/B/C

(all year)

Sunday Clubruns are usually the place that most people get their first experience of riding with us. We have five paces of ride to choose from (A to E) and our B and C paced rides are so popular that there is usually more than one B paced ride and more than one C paced ride. Our A paced ride is our steadiest ride and our E paced ride is our quickest  ride. In addition to these groups we also have a Sunday eBike ride which is just for eBike riders. Most weeks we get over 60 riders spread across all groups so there is no reason why anyone should feel apprehensive about coming down to meet us for the first time. The best place for initial contact if you are interested in joining one of our clubruns is by turning up at the Coop car park on Sunday at 9.30 or by emailing clubruns@holmfirthcc.com  

A, B, C, D and eBike rides meet at Holmfirth Coop car park.

E rides meet at Holmfirth Post Office car park. 

See the Calendar for details of route planners.

Lady only and Gentlemen only Evening Clubruns

Gentlemen - Wednesday

6:00 pm 

Ladies - Wednesday

6:30 pm

Mixed - 

Thursday

7pm

The lady and gentleman only rides usually run at around B/C pace and depart from Holmfirth Post Office car park. the mixed ride usually runs at around A/B pace and leaves from Holmfirth Coop car park. The rides are circular and approximately 25/30 miles are covered. These rides runs throughout the year (except during very poor weather) and so lights are essential. These groups are aimed at getting people out for a quick spin during the week and so can attract riders of varying strength. For this reason the ride will always regroup after climbs, and during winter months it tends to follow an established route so that no one gets left behind. There are specific rides for ladies and gentlemen that depart at slightly different times.

Wednesday (Daytime) Clubruns

9.30 am B pace

10.00 am C pace

Both of these rides include a coffee stop. The B paced ride usually covers about 35 miles and the C paced ride about 50 miles, but this is dependent upon the weather and time of year. The B paced ride meets at Holmfirth Coop car park and the C paced ride meets on Victoria Bridge in the centre of Holmfirth, adjacent to Lloyds Bank.

Clubrun Abroad

Easter

Our annual clubrun abroad event has become a popular feature of our clubrun calendar. This event usually attracts around 50 riders who share the same aim of finding some early spring sun to get some pre-summer miles in. This year we are planning to travel to Puerto Pollensa between 11 and 18 April 2020.  If you think  you might join us please have a look at the details on our club's Facebook page or contact Jane Travis at clubruns@holmfirthcc.com  . If you do decided to join us, one thing we can guarantee is that  we know that you will have a great time.
