Welcome to Houghton Cycling Club

Houghton Cycling Club was established in 1932 and is therefore one of the oldest cycling clubs in North East England. (A history of the club can be found here: Houghton-Cycling-Club-History-1932-1987 )

Whatever your cycling interests, age, experience or ability, Houghton Cycling Club is open to everyone!

We cater for many different types of cycling including social, road racing, time trials, touring, mountain, audax and cyclo-cross.

We organise a very popular Sunday club run program which includes several ride options each week. We also promote a number of events throughout the year, including a series of 10 mile time trials, a reliability trial, circuit racing on the Nissan test track or at Hetton Park, the acclaimed Houghton Feast cyclo cross event at Hetton Park and the popular “Quarrington Hill Climb” competition in October.

The club is very active in road and Cyclo-cross racing scene with a number of members competing at a high level. However, we are keen to support anybody wishing to try racing for the first time, whether that be circuit racing or time trials.
