Monday May 5th: Official Start of the NHCC Ride Season

With around 85 members already and still growing, the 2014 season is gonna be great! And people have been asking, so here is the intel: as of Monday May 5th the official ride season will begin. We’ve already had one pre-season ride to the Sugar Shack, and soon we’ll be in full-swing with all of our regular rides as usual. (New this year: the Port Hope ride will take place on Wednesday nights)
In case your wondering about that Pancake ride, here’s a little bit of visual for you:

Regular Rides (Starting May 5th):

Level 1: Monday nights
Level 2: Wednesday Nights
Levels 3 and 4: Thursday Mornings and Sunday Mornings
Port Hope Rides: Wednesday Nights

Century and Other rides:
Occasionally the Level 2 rides will join in on Sundays for something a little longer. And of course there’s those Century Rides on all long weekends: 100k! The first will be to Presqu’ile on the May long weekend. The last will be Labour Day weekend where we are planning four distances this year: 50k, 100k, 160k or 200k (yeah, 200k! you read right!)

Can-Bike Safe Cycling Course
Can-Bike will run starting on Tuesday May 6th and run for the months of May and June. That’s where you learn how to ride safely on all roads in all situations. We highly encourage all levels of riders to participate.  There isn’t a soul in our club, regardless of experience, who wouldn’t benefit from learning the safe cycling principles that will be club policy for 2014.
