Off-season (non-cycling) activities with the NHCC

The NHCC may be in off-season mode but it doesn’t mean we aren’t active! There are plenty of club activities including mid-week hiking in-town and weekend hikes or cross-country skiing (when it snows) in the local forests. We love seeing new smiling faces, so if you’ve been thinking about it, come on out and give it a try.

Off season non-cycling events are open to everyone and it’s FREE! We do however require that non-members bring a signed waiver form to any event. Simply print it, sign it, and bring it with you to give to the organizer.

Got questions? Feel free to leave it in the comments section and we’ll be right on it!
