Presidents Corner:
Riding is picking up and so is the heat! We always remind you to hydrate, but dont forget your sunscreen as well! Protect your skin to avoid any sun damage! Also, mountain bikers and trail runners need to check yourselves for ticks after you activities!

The Tour De Scholar was again a HUGE success! The day started out a little cloudy, but made for a cool start. The sun came out and the weather was GREAT! The routes and support were again outstanding with some great food provided by HUGOs to replenish with! There are already talks of some changes for next years ride from the feedback we received. Moving on to this coming week we have the Smith River Fest at the Smith River Sports Complex. This is a great event free to the public with plenty to do! Come and join us at the event or any of our scheduled rides!

Henry County Bike Club (HCBC) is a non-profit organization that started in the state of Virginia in 2008. The purposes of the Henry County Bike Club is to promote friendship, fun and fuel efficient fitness by encouraging the use of bicycles by the citizens of Martinsville, Henry County and the surrounding areas, and to actively support other area organizations in their advocacy of the development of safer streets, trail systems, and bicycle-friendly infrastructure projects for use by all members of the area communities.
Simply put as our motto states, we like to “To ride, have fun, build trails and support our community!”
HCBC offers weekly, monthly, sole and spontaneous rides for riders wanting rails-to-trails, mountain biking or road rides that cater to any and all disciplines! We also have and encourage volunteer opportunities for trail building and working with local organizations by participating in events promoting healthier lifestyles throughout our community and beyond.
We have 2 official meetings a year; A business meeting each winter to elect officers and discuss rides and events we plan to participate in the upcoming year. The second meeting is scheduled at the end of most riders’ seasons’ in early winter to discuss the outcome of the rides and events of the previous year.
HCBC also attends other organizations events for fellowship, education and most importantly to establish new friendships to continue to grow the sport we love.
Welcome to our web and find the ride or volunteer opportunity that awaits you………….
