Hey NHCC-ers! As soon as the season ends our volunteers start reviewing the past year then planning and organizing to make our Club even better for next year! If we could get a little constructive anonymous (really!) feedback from you, the wonderful participants who rode with us this past season it would help us out immensely! 5 minutes, that’s all it takes, and we really do appreciate it! By the way, your feedback is totally anonymous and absolutely nobody will know it’s you, unless you choose to identify yourself!

We considered a ride to Stoney Lake Market from Hastings but in case we do get some precipitation to slick up the roads it’ll be safer on the trail. There and back is 66km with a stop at Tim Hortons in Peterborough. If anyone wants to do a shorter ride there is the opportunity to turn around at any point. Temperatures should be nice for an October ride!
Date: Sunday, October 15th
Meeting Place: Richard’s house, Hastings (leave a comment if you need the address sent to you)

It’s been a fabulous season for evening riding, even though it started off rainy and a little on the chillyish side. However, all good things come to and end and so too must the Evening Ride Program. The days are just getting too darn short. The NHCC wants to extend a wonderful, ever-grateful and sincere thank you for all the effort put forth by ride coordinators & leaders this season. Without them, nobody rides! They are the ones who literally put the rubber to the road to make it happen.
Don’t put away your bikes yet! For the balance of the season we will continue to ride on weekends or weekdays whenever weather permits and a ride leader is available. Please monitor the website for announcements of such rides. They are usually posted a couple of days in advance.
In the meantime, plan to attend the Annual Meeting & Social Soiree in just three weeks, on Thursday October 19th. That’s when we’ll be officially celebrating all that the season has brought to us, and look ahead to the next season!
For AGM Attendees only: All who attend the Annual Meeting and Social Soiree will have the opportunity to pickup a 2018 membership for just $35 shrimpy bucks. It’s the best price you’ll see for next year’s memberships and it’s offered at this price for one night only.
You can get tickets from ride leaders, or if you can’t seem to connect with one, contact Anita at email@example.com
