Join British Cycling


Hythe Cycling Club

We are Hythe Cycling Club (HCC) founded and affiliated to British Cycling in 2015. The club is managed by a dedicated management committee who are democratically elected by its members as part of the Annual General Meeting.

The committee comprises of a maximum of 7 members including the Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer, with the remaining committee members responsible for Cycling Kit, Welfare, Website, Social Media and general running of the club.

The Club rides every Sunday morning at 09:00 from the Hythe & Saltwood Sailing Club (H&SSC) cycling in organised groups through towns, villages and the beautiful countryside of Kent.Our members engage in Charity Rides, Competitive Time Trials, Sportives, Road Racing and Track rides.  The Club is an associated member of H&SSC and as such we enjoy subsidised after-ride food and drink provided by galley volunteers on Sundays from March to October. During the winter months members are able to use the club facilities for tea, coffee and cake provided free by the Club.  

The Club offers a range of groups to cycle with based on rider’s ability and aspirations. Group sizes are kept to around 10 riders with each group generally being led by a Ride Captain with a Sweeper at the rear of the group. 

As well as the HCC Sunday organised club rides, some of its members along with members from other local cycling clubs take part in training rides on Wednesdays and Fridays.These training rides take place from the Hythe Light Railway Café in which groups and routes are organised on the day. If you fancy meeting up with likeminded cyclists and want to increase your weekly mileage, maintain or increase your level of fitness and enjoy lunch as part of the ride, then please feel free to join in.  Please note, however, that these rides are not suitable for novice riders as they tend to be about 60 miles in length and at about 16 to 18 mph.

The club communicates to its members through our Facebook page and email.For further information about our club, please take a look around our website and use the contact page if you require any additional information.
