RIDE HIAWATHA!!

Come ride with HBC in July.  Our sponsors include Luce Line brewing and SAG support from Trailhead Cycling.  Visit Ride Hiawatha and sign up today. Everyone is welcome to ride! T-shirts are available at the registration site; show off your HBC pride with a comfy 40/60 blend, and women's have a stylish V-neck. 



2024 SPRING KICKOFF!!



HBC welcomed the return of prime biking season with an earlier than usual Spring Kickoff!

Many thanks to Mary Buss for planning, organizing, and managing this fun event!

Members reconnected at Burnes Park for breakfast treats, joined one of three ride routes, and returned for a potluck picnic.

Special thanks to ride leaders Brett Gebhard, Colette Sulser and Haggith Nadav (and kudos to Mary for slipping the event into the one dry day of a rainy weekend)! 

Looking forward to a fantastic biking season!!

      • 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
