Due to uncertain weather tomorrow, the Century Ride will NOT be happening. There will however, be a regular club ride posted for 10:00am for those who wish to ride. Sorry ’bout that, folks.
It’s here! The First Annual NHCC Century Ride. If you’re ready for the BIG one, we’ve got a route that will take you on an imperial Century (160.9km). For the less crazy folks, there’s the metric Century (100km). And for those who are new to long distances you can still be part of the ride. The 62km route will take you along the first part of the route. (Please monitor weather forecasts: persistent rain may result in postponement)
All three distances head out along the Waterfront Trail. The 62k group turns around after the first Rest Stop in Colborne, the 100k group goes to the lighthouse in Presqu’ile then back, and the 160km group exits Presquile then takes a 60km loop that takes you down to Consecon and beyond, returning to the park entrance and then back to Cobourg.
The route is FLAT! The highest elevation is 175m which is baby-stuff when you are used to riding around here.
Rest Stops and Support Vehicle
There will be rest stops in Colborne and Presqu’ile, providing riders with fresh fruit, trail mix, gatorade, ice and water (provided by the NHCC).
