It has been a great season so come out and join us for the last ‘official’ level 3 of 2016. The sun is setting at 6:57 so the ride will be a 1/2 hour out and 1/2 hour back. The route is TBD but you can be sure that Roberto will make it interesting.
Time: 6 pm
Ride Leader: Roberto
Start Location: Parkette on Carlisle
Come join us for the last ‘official’ level 2 ride of the season! Roberto says we are “going to Port Hope and back”. He is going to give more detail of the route in the comment section. We are starting at the Westwood Park on Carlisle St. in Cobourg. It is getting dark earlier, so please remember your lights.
Also please chime in and let us know what pace you are interested in, ie. level 2 or 2+. Geoffrey will be riding toward the back at a level 2 pace.
Start time: 6pm (18:00)
Ride leader: Roberto Almeida
Start location: Westwood park on Carlisle St Cobourg
This will be the last Monday evening ride this season! We’ll do as much as we can of the West End Dead End Tour that we can in an hour. Make sure your lights are on your bike!
Tickets for the NHCC Social, Dinner, and AGM on November 9th will be available for sale. $30 each.
Date: Monday, September 26th
Meeting Location: park at Westwood and Carlisle
Ride Leader: Dale Pierce
Cancellation notice: At the risk of getting rained on (as radar suggests may be the case) we are going to cancel tonight’s ride and hope that next Thursday will be a little better. Stay home and stay dry!
The sun sets at 7:08 tonight, so we’re only going to get in about one hour of riding. Looking at the weather forecast it appears that tonight will be the last of the relatively warmish evenings. We won’t be riding particularly fast or very hilly, but just getting out to enjoy a little pedal-time. Make sure you have lights on the front and back of your bike, it’s actually the law!
Start time: 6:00pm
Ride Leader: Anita Macklin
Start location: Westwood Park (Carlisle St.)
Route: Mystery route to be determined
Maria Siemiaszko and Lee Wakelin are going out for Lee’s first 100km ride and if anyone wants to come out with us, you are most welcome to! Be it your first 100km as well, or whether you’ve done plenty, be forewarned that the pace will be not be fast! We’ll be taking breaks along the way too. It’ll be a little different from our usual club route as we’re starting in Colborne and heading east and eventually onto Cty Rd 3 in Prince Edward County, which has some pretty views.
If you want to come out for a Level 2 pace ride but don’t have the time or inclination to ride 100km, you can turn around at any point.
Bring snacks, lots of fluids, and some money. Let us know if you’d like to come out so we can let you know if plans change in any way.
Date: Thursday, September 22nd
Meeting Location: Keeler Centre, Colborne
Distance: 100km (or whatever) at a Level 2ish pace (or whatever Lee wants to do!)
CORRECTION: The days that AGM tickets are available in Port Hope from Debbie should be: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays (not Wednesday)
Being the third Wednesday of the month means it’s an All Levels ride! This will actually be the final All Levels ride of our official 2016 cycling season, though there will be plenty of other rides to look forward to. As usual, we have one route, one start time. Since daylight hours have shrunken to the point where sunset is at 7:09pm, we’ll just do a simple 60 minute ride. 30 minutes out, turn around and ride 30 minutes back at whatever pace you feel like doing! By the way, friends and family are more than welcome to join us at The Mill after the ride for the social!
Start time: 6:00pm (Ride), and 7:15pm (pub social)
Start location: Parking lot at The Mill
Ride Coordinator: Anita Macklin
RSVP: We need to make sure they reserve enough space for us, so please leave a comment to let us know you’ll be around for the social portion.
