We can help you improve your skills and fitness from Beginner level right up to National champion, run family events and reach out to schools and other groups.

This year is HHYCC’s 15th anniversary, and the Herne Hill Velodrome pavilion is being rebuilt, so we wanted to celebrate this with something special.
We found it difficult to continue using our trails right through the winter because some work is needed to improve drainage. We also have some exciting plans to add a mountain bike skills area. Therefore we’ve decided to celebrate our anniversary by raising money to carry out repairs and improvements.
On Saturday 25th June we will be holding a sponsored cycle ride. There will be 2 circuits - 800m for our younger riders and a more challenging 1500m circuit for older riders. This means that anyone can take part and it’s your choice which circuit you decide to do.
The ride will take place between 10am and 3pm. There will be refreshments on the day and spectators will be welcome. The event will be professionally scored with electronic timing to keep track of the laps you complete.
Thank you all for your contributions and good luck in your ride!
Adults welcome too!
