About Us


Who are we:
HBC was established in 1982 as a nonprofit bicycling and social club. We currently have over 400 members whose cycling skills range from beginner to advanced.

What do we do:
HBC offers all levels of structured road rides on weekends and holidays. Cyclists of all abilities meet from April through November. Leaders are trained in road safety and take our members on scenic and bicycle friendly routes throughout all parts of Long Island.

HBC maintains an active safety and education program in the community, and updated on local government as relates to cycling issues. HBC is a proud member of the LAB, League for American Bicyclists, an advocacy organization and the Long Island Bicycle Coalition which is coordinated by members from all the bicycle clubs on Long Island.

The Gold Coast Tour:  
In addition to an extensive weekend riding program, HBC proudly organizes and supports Long Island’s premiere cycling event, the Gold Coast Tour, which annually attracts over 600 riders from all parts of Long Island and the tri-state area.
