Hoppy Cycling Club
Group was formed in 2010 at a Boise high school 30 year reunion among four friends who wanted to get in shape, Mark Suderman, Connell Lloyd, Lonnie Young and Scott Morrel. The goal was to race the Bogus Hill Climb. We started riding that summer, and all ended up riding in the Bogus Hill Climb.
This started us riding together as a small group on the weekends. We all were into mountain biking, and that has become primary focus when trail conditions allow, but we also do club road rides. The club was started to just ride bikes and have cold beer and pizza in the North End. As we rode more, we noticed a lot of teams had matching kits. We looked like a bunch of vagrants, so Mark decided we needed our own kit. We designed our first kits, and our first order was over $3500. More and more friends wanted to ride and wear the kits. Since then, we have had 4 kit redesigns.
The club has been going strong after seven years and has raced in many events XC, Enduro, Road Race, Time Trial, and Criterium. We still enjoy the weekend club rides the best. Membership has grown to ~90 people. Many are family and support, and there are ~15 who actively compete in races and events (LP200, High Cascades 100, Cascade Four Summit Challenge, fondos, etcetera).
Group rides are still the priority with the social and fitness goals. Here is slider of photo Posts from recent HCC rides
