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.

Captains Big Day Out!

on Wed, 19/02/2014 - 09:32

We are aiming to do the Trough, but we are going to head to Chipping or Dunsop Bridge first and then take it from there. If the weather or roads look shite, we will then head over towards Mellor instead for a 70+ mile ride.  If all goes to plan, these are the details - 

  • Leave @ 9.15am
  • Arrive at Dunsop Bridge Cafe for 11.30ish 
  • 45min break
  • Then over the Trough of Bowland
  • Stop at Scorton shop (not cafe)
  • Split the groups A & B if needed
  • Then head down the A6 if a few tried legs, if not through Wood Plumpton.
  • Then A59 Preston
  • Cobble Bridge and towards Midge Hall, Croston etc or A59 if a few tried

Slightly longer ride than usual with planned return time around 2.30. Likely to encounter a few hills en route although nothing too strenuous. Unlike last week the pace will be kept steady at 18/19 average, slightly slower on the hills will be permitted.  GAiven the weather forecast a revised speed of 17/18 might be more accurate!

 No-one to be left behind except on the way back after Preston. Only 5 made the longer ride to the Rake last week, hopefully more will sign on this week! No map attached as I know where I'm going
