HomeAbout MHBC






Welcome to the home of the Memphis Hightailers Bicycle Club. We are dedicated to promoting cycling in the Memphis and Mid South community. 

Founded in 1962, the MHBC is a volunteer, non profit club with over 1400 members. MHBC organizes weekly bicycle rides and social events for all levels and abilities. Rides are held every weekend through out the year.  During the summer months, regular rides meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on the weekends. More details are available on the Weekly Rides page.  
Please check our Event Calendar often. Many of our rides do not require you to be a member of the Hightailers, but members receive discounted rates for our events.

We have three major club events planned for 2014 with many club rides throughout the year, so visit the Event Calendar often to get the most up to date information. If you are a member, check out the weekly e-newsletter for the most up to date club information and rides.

Our members sometimes travel to more distant locations to explore cycling events in other parts of the states and even
Europe. Most times these are posted for other members to join along in the fun. We offer several weekly rides during daylight savings time, and our members also support other weekly rides in the area organized by the local bike shops and local racing teams.  

There are ad hoc meetings during the year which can feature slide shows of recent bicycle trips, discussions of cycling safety, and tips on repair, equipment and routes. All scheduled meetings are announced in the newsletter and on the web. 
Your membership not only helps the club prosper and helps us promote our mission in the community, but it also entitles you to discounts at our club rides, select local rides, and at our local bike shop sponsors.

Annual dues are $25 for individual ($40 for two years) or $40 for family ($70 for two years).
Please contact our membership director if you have any questions.
