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 1500 members. MHBC organizes weekly bicycle rides and social events for all levels and abilities. Rides are held almost every day of the week throughout the year. 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, although members receive discounted rates for our events.

We have four major club events planned for 2016 with many more 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 Tailwind (our 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 USA and have been to Europe and Asia to ride. Often trips like these are advertised for other members to join in on the fun. Our members also support other weekly rides in the area organized by local bike shops and local racing teams.

We host 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 e-newsletter, on the web and via social media through Facebook and Twitter.
Your membership not only helps the club prosper and helps us promote our mission in the community, but it also entitles you to discounts on 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). We also have student memberships as well as the Trailblazer membership that allows you to join the Hightailers and also our partner organization Mid-South Trails Association at the same time.
Please contact our membership director if you have any questions.
