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, at Ormskirk High School.

HMCC has something for everyone.....

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

(Not) The Captains Ride - The Trough - Sun 24th April

on Wed, 20/04/2016 - 13:12

As posted the Captain cannot make Sunday so you're stuck with me. I have mapped a route that I intend to take the group on - the forecast looks good BUT if we get a bit wet/cold or we get a few mechanicals then I may make some changes on the fly to ensure we get back mid afternoon - however currently the plan is to make this a century - the ride breaks up into 3rds - the first 3rd is flat, the second 3rd is very hilly with gradients hitting 20%+ and the final 3rd is relatively flat but the pace may ramp up a bit as eager people drive the group home. 

Plan is to head North, keeping off the A6

Alternative A Group Ride

on Tue, 19/04/2016 - 16:32

Chilling prior to Mallorca next week so no captains ride for me. Will take an alternative A group ride from the shop. Route TBC but will be relatively steady and suitable for strong B group riders who aren't doing the captains ride.

Club Trip 2016

on Mon, 18/04/2016 - 14:51

I am re-posting this to bring it back to the front of everyones minds.I have  booked for Friday/Saturday 24/25th June 2016 at Foel Ortho again. I have booked the farmhouse (sleeps 16), the bunkhouse (sleeps 12) and the treehouse (sleeps 2). So far I have 22 takers, please see all the details in the Forum. I need at least 1 more taker to have the full  funds to pay for the booking. I usually provide all the breakfast basics plus the odd drink but will need a few more takers so I have the funds to do that. It is a great social and cycling weekend, open to everyone.

It is only a couple of months
