What is the Northampton Cycling Club?

  • Formed in 1999, the NCC has over 650 active members.
  • The Northampton Cycling Club (NCC) is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote fun, fitness, and health through the sport of cycling to athletes of all ages and abilities in the Pioneer Valley.

What We Do:

The NCC promotes cycling in the Pioneer Valley, facilitating annual events, youth initiatives, weekly group rides, and partnering with the community.

  • We facilitate annual local cycling events covering many cycling disciplines, such as cyclocross races (Ghost CX, Hydra Cross, and NohoCX), gravel rides (Massachistah and the JAM Grand Fundo), road rides (Hatfield Lions Club Bike Tour) and road races (Zoom Twilight Crit Series). In 2022, there were 2,789 registered participants in our events.
  • Our youth cycling initiatives have grown exponentially over the past few years. Our weekly spring and summer youth programs at Look Park host 75 kids. Our youth mountain biking and gravel program (Trail Blasters) has been so successful that we recently started the Trail Blasters Racing Team for young riders who want to enter local cyclocross and mountain bike races.
  • During the outdoor riding season, we host 10 group rides per week. Currently, these road and gravel rides start in Northampton, Florence, and Easthampton. In addition, our weekly time trial and hill climbs starts in multiple sites, including Chesterfield, Deerfield, Hadley, Hatfield, Northampton, Pelham, Shutesbury, Westhampton, and Whately.
  • We represent passionate cyclists who are involved in the community. Whether we are at Northampton’s Bike Week, fundraising for nonprofits such as Bikes Fight Cancer and All Out Adventures, or securing grants for a Northampton area bike park, we want to share our love of cycling with Western Massachusetts.
