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.

From April to September ​- Harry Middleton Cycling Club will be holding their weekly Go Ride youth coaching sessions from April, 6.30PM until 7.30 PM. Please email - for further details....

HMCC has something for everyone.....

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

We Are Back!!!

on Mon, 10/05/2021 - 20:14
We Are Back!!! From Monday 17th May we will re-start our Club Runs.
All Club Runs will be back to meeting outside The Bicycle Lounge. I appreciate everyone has been organising their own rides with fellow club members & friends over the last 14 months, to keep the group numbers down etc. Which has been amazing! Thank you!
Meeting outside the shop is the home of The Harry Middleton Cycling Club & our meeting point. I hope to revive the Club Runs from day one.
Sunday Club Runs will resume from Sunday 23rd May.
Ride Date: 
Sunday, 23 May, 2021
