The Houston Bicycle Club
The Houston Bicycle Club is a non-profit, volunteer run recreational cycling club for riders of all ages and abilities. The Club was organized for the promotion of bicycling among men and women as a healthful outdoor sport, and to promote and encourage bicycle safety in Texas among adults as well as young people. The Club was started in 1964.
The HBC has about 450 members with a wide variety of interests in cycling. Some of us are casual weekend riders, some are bicycle commuters, some are competitive racers, and some just want to express their support for bicycling as a fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly activity. In short, we like to ride!
Becoming a member is easy and cheap ($20 per year). You can sign up online using this website or by mail. You will start receiving our monthly club newsletter, The Final Draft which lists the all important ride schedule.
The HBC has a variety of rides including in-town social rides, countryside rides, training rides for hard riders, orientation rides for new members, as well as “special” rides such as the Trash Ride and the New Years Pot Luck Ride. Most of our countryside rides are to the west and northwest of Houston. See the Rides section of this website for more information.
Non members are welcome on all rides. Choose a ride that suits you. Come on out to the ride start and have a good time! Hopefully, you will become a member.
The HBC has a monthly meeting, usually on the second Tuesday of the month. This is a good occasion to socialize with fellow members, sign up to be a ride starter, listen to an interesting program, and grab some snacks!
Thruout the year the HBC has special events such as bicycle weekends, picnics, a century, social get-togethers for sporting events, comedy clubs, musical events, and the like. In past years we have organized super tours in the US as well as abroad. The HBC is also one of the rotational sponsors of the Kerrville Easter Hill country ride.
