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.

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

Spring Rake

on Mon, 22/02/2016 - 19:40

Posted this up on Facebook and looks like we have a few takers.

On Sunday 28th I will take out a group to Ramsbottom - Route attached but basically out to Rivi, over Sheephouse, Belmont then following a similar route to the Roman Road. At Edgworth we then turn for Ramsbottom and take on the Rake. For those that haven't atempted this climb, it isn't in the 100 climbs book, nor has it been used as a National Hill Climb for nothing.
