Hernando Bicycle Club

Hernando, MS

Who we are

 

Hello, welcome to our site

 

We are just a few people that enjoy

riding bikes in and around

Hernando , MS

 

This is an informal club,

no membership fees,

just a resource for cyclists

to get together and ride.

 

Check our calendar to see

when our next ride is.

Our usual pace is 15-18 mph,

or as fast as the slowest rider.

No one gets dropped.

Ride of Silence

May 17th

 Join us on Wednesday, May 17, at 7:00pm
 Ride starts from the south side of the DeSoto County Courthouse in
 Hernando. We will ride 8.3 miles, no faster than 12 mph, with a police
 escort. All riders are welcome as we ride in silence to honor those that have
 been hurt or killed in car/bicycle incidents, to raise awareness, and ask that
 motorists share the road with cyclists.
 Ride will depart at 7:00, so show up a little early to prepare your bike and
 line up at 6:50 for a few short words to begin the ride.
Please check out rideofsilence.org for more info.

Slow Spokes

NOTICE: current start time is 3:00 pm on Sundays!

Are you new to cycling?

Not ready for the long rides yet?

Just wanna slow down?

We are planning to have Sunday Afternoon beginner rides.

Join the Slow spoke Rides.

The Slow Spoke rides will be shorter,

5 miles in the city, in bike lanes,

and then for those that want to go a little more,

We will go another 10-15 miles in a more rural route.

This is designed as a ride to help

less experienced riders have a starting point.

An experienced club rider will be there to go over the basics,

and let you know what to expect.

The Hernando Bicycle Club wants riders of all levels to

get out and enjoy the sport of cycling.

Check the calendar to see if a Slow Spoke Ride is planned for this week.

NEW PART OF SLOW SPOKES:

We have another riding group on Sundays- The S3 (slower slow spokes) group, which is part of the Slow Spokes. Two of our Slow Spokes riders, Evans and Cynthia plan on leading some of the slower riders around 2-5 miles to get them used to riding  and running errands-like to the grocery, a friend's house, library, or riding with their kid or grand kids. If you know of someone who would like to do this kind of ride, have them meet Evans and Cynthia at 3:00 on Sundays, from the south side of the courthouse, at Panola Street.


The regular Slow Spokes will meet at the same place/time.
