Beginning as an informal meeting of riders outside the local bike shop in Ormskirk, HMCC was officially formed in 2008, named in honour of the late Harry Middleton – a well known local cyclist and owner of the bike shop.

Since 2008 the club has grown massively in popularity now having over 350 members of all ages. The club has managed to retain its casual, informal friendly attitude to cycling with the main priority being enjoyment and encouragement for riders of all abilities and experience, who just want to ride their bikes.

So, whether you'd just like to join other people on social rides, get fitter and improve your riding skills, or ride in sportives and races as a British Cycling affiliated club rider, HMCC has something for everyone.

Join us. Find out more about membership and how to join us on an organised club ride.

Wirral Loop

on Fri, 05/02/2016 - 13:03

Forecast isn't great full stop for the weekend, I can't get out at all on Sunday hence a Saturday ride is on the cards.

The usual ride in to Liverpool, jump on the train for one stop, then a full loop of the Wirral peninsular stopping at the Two Mills cafe at around the 40 mile mark.

Rides aimed at A / strong B group riders with a pace to suit all.

Barrowbridge, Matchmoor & home

on Fri, 29/01/2016 - 08:54

Assuming the storm blows over a ride out to Barrowbridge, back over Matchmoor and then home. Two climbs but a bit lumpy inbetween as well.

Still planning to keep it steady for any B group riders who want to join in.

Not planning a cafe stop but if you want one, a couple of detours to the Great Barn at Rivington at about 35 miles or again to Cedar Farm at about 45 miles are two suggestions.
