Welcome to BHPC

We’re the British Human Power Club – home of the British HPV community

Human Powered Vehicles – anything you can ride on or in provided it’s powered by legs, arms, or just sheer ingenuity

Bikes then?
Bikes, of course, but there’s so much more – trikes, velomobiles, handcycles, pedalboats

Tell me more!
Come on in and scroll on down

If you’re already a seasoned HPVer you probably want the Pro section
