Presidents Corner:
Riding season for many is coming to an end as days get shorter and the holidays start. We will change a few times and maybe dates, but for those whose season never ends, there will be some riding opportunities available! Charge up the lights and get ready!

All HCBC rides are still going strong. The darkness is coming faster in the evenings! Be aware when taking off on a road ride of how much riding you will be doing into the sunset. Limit as many miles as you can riding westward roads at sunset due to the fact of the blinding sunset that greatly affects drivers visibility! Trail riders need to start thinking about leaves falling and how slick the trails get with them on them. This will be on the single tracks and also the Dick and Willie trail. We have a great group of volunteers that help keep our trails clear, but its hard to have them good all the time. Enjoy whatever ride you take!

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………….
