The smug self-satisfaction of rolling out while the world slumbers. The heady feels of conquering an ascent like an angry warlord. Smashing a beer in your face after a day's adventure like a marauding viking of yore. New bib shorts.
Yeah, we know.
We are a social club who cycle. Our abilities and our steeds may vary just like our tastes in music, but our commitment to sharing our love of joyful aches and the open road does not. We're not afraid of a monster ride as long as it's fun, but to us it's about smiles over miles. We operate on one rule: don't be a dick.
The HMCC was founded in London in 2014 as a way of keeping legendary charity cycling group the Heavy Metal Truants together year round. In the spirit of the Heavy Metal Truants, who have raised over a million pounds for kids charities, we invite heavy metal cyclists from around the world to connect with us.
Our founding London chapter runs two types of rides mainly: Neon Knights -- a casual, evening city spin usually (okay, always) ending at a pub, and montly club rides departing North, South, or West. We also do one-offs and pick-up rides. Come along to a ride and we'll add you to our Whatsapp so you can find out more.
