Upcoming Rides

"NAME THAT RIDE" CONTEST!


Calling all HBC Members: As we transition from Tour D'Amico to a different venue (see below), we need a new catchy ride name! We will be keeping the ride close to July 4, Independence Day. A name that represents HBC and the holiday would be appropriate.

Winner will be selected by the ride core committee.  

Prize for the selected submission will include an HBC buff + One free ride registration + One year membership.

Submissions are due to

Nancy Ellis, ellis704@aol.com

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
