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.

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.

Col HumphreyYes it's been a great series with pretty decent weather mostly and some cracking turn outs. Much better from the new start. Great to see some fast lads and lasses from other clubs/teams turning up. Well done to all HCC members who have competed week in week out and thanks to all the Officials & marshalls who help out and make sure the events go ahead. Roll on next May👍
