Monday, February 18th: Afternoon Ski

With some fresh new snow expected overnight and in the morning, the skiing should be great! Bring fluids and a snack for an afternoon skiing fun!
Date: Monday, February 17th
Start Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: parking lot at Beagle Club

An extra note: someone skied on the blue trail while it was slushy on Friday. This has now frozen into a rutted mess which is almost worse that the damage walkers inflict. Please stay off the ski trails when they are slushy!

Bicycle Action Committee to Address Cobourg Council

Sustainable Cobourg’s Bicycle Action Committee (BAC) will be making a presentation to Cobourg Council’s Committee of the Whole on Tuesday, February 19 (the meeting begins at 6pm). The BAC will be making its pitch for cycling infrastructure projects for the coming year (separated path along Elgin from Strathy to St. Peter’s Cemetery) and the three remaining years of this Council (completion of the Kerr St corridor trail – a “spine” to connect a number of paths/routes).

We extend an invitation to all Northumberland Hills Cycling Club members and supporters to attend this meeting to show Council your support for these projects. The BAC has, over the last eleven years, made numerous presentations to Council encouraging them to improve Cobourg’s cycling infrastructure. This has led to considerable work being done already, but there’s still more to be done. Let’s encourage Council to include these in its new mandate.

Sunday, February 10th: Afternoon Hike

Since skiing is on hold for now, we’ll head out for a hike instead. Conditions are bound to be icy so I’d say icers are a must and poles will likely be good to have. If you don’t have icers but have snowshoes with the metal crampons on the bottom, they may do. We can decide upon a route and distance depending on what everyone wants.
Date: Sunday, February 10th
Start Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: Woodland parking lot at Northumberland Forest
