Hinckley Cycle Racing Club (HCRC) started life in a garden shed in Hinckley, Leicestershire in 1947.

There were no cycling clubs local to Hinckley at that time so eight cycling friends including current life President Trev Page decided to start one.

Originally called Hinckley Cycling Club (HCC) the name was changed to avoid confusion with Hinckley Cricket Club (HCC).

Club runs catering for all abilities leave from the Bandstand in Argents Mead, Hinckley at 8.30 on Sunday mornings.

The club also promotes a club 10 mile trial each Tuesday night between April and September on the popular Cloudesley Bush course at Wolvey Heath.

Each May the club promotes an open 4 up team time trial that continues to go from strength to strength attracting 112 riders in 2019.
