Self Paced Rides are Here

Some bicycling clubs have simply stopped offering rides for the season. HBC feels otherwise. HBC is offering Self-Paced Rides. Self-Paced Rides are HBC Rides that you will do either by yourself, household members, and invited others.  You may complete the ride anytime within a week after it is posted.  

Great fall picture below, if it is too cold or snowy for you to bike checkout our winter walker program by emailing:

Note: All Rides Posted on the Ride Calendar are Self Paced Solo Rides until Further Notice

2020 Annual HBC Members Meeting

Sunday, November 8, 2020 - 6:30 pm

"A Virtual Party & Meeting with Drinks and Food"

    The HBC Board of Directors invites all members to this virtual event 

    ( Zoom link will be sent before meeting; space on Zoom is limited to the first 100 participants who sign in)


    Schedule of events:

    Happy Hour (5:30 – 6:30)

    Join in any time after 5:30 for drinks and dinner with old and new friends.  Drinks and dinner on Zoom, you ask?

    One of the best things about the Annual meeting is the potluck beforehand.  Not happening this year - bummer, but to make it sort of like the good old days, we have a suggestion.  Go to your local D’Amico's location* and order a takeout pizza or meal and get a dessert and bring them home in time for our Happy Hour. Or, you could just heat up some leftovers in the microwave, but what’s the fun in that? 

    Business meetings (and pizza) can be thirsty work.  Ellen Guerin shares mixology tips to whip up signature "bicycle themed" beverage for the Happy Hour 

    6:30-7:30 Business meeting

    At 6:30, the Business meeting will begin.  We will do a recap of the year and elect new Board members.  A copy of last year’s meeting minutes can be found on the HBC website.

About the Club

Hiawatha Bicycling Club (HBC) is a recreational riding club. Our core value is providing friendly rides and opportunities to create lasting friendships. Our ride leaders and volunteers create this inclusive environment by:

  • Welcoming new and existing members at each ride
      • Introductions at start of each ride
      • Often a meal or a tasty treat during or after the ride
      • A monthly all club Birthday Bash with food, wine and birthday cake
  • Emphasizing rider safety
  • Offering several weekly rides across the metro area:
    • Appealing to a wide variety of rider abilities
    • Exploring close to home or expanding out to the 11 county metropolitan area
    • Providing opportunities for multi-day riding near and far
  • Educating members and the community on bike related topics through our Smart Cycling series

Rides are open to all - non members welcome

When we start group riding again, check out this out:

A special invitation for those of you who are not ready for our Club's moderate to fast rides

Join us on our relaxed rides.  Bring a bike a helmet and a bike in good working order to get started in group riding.  No one gets dropped and many of our relaxed riders make good friends on these rides and often get conditioned to join our moderate rides.  Let's ride together and have fun.
