Cycle Transitions could use your support tomorrow night

Cycle Transitions, our beloved do-it-yourself bicycle shop and cycling safety centre is homeless. We need your support tomorrow night as fellow club members Bruce Bellaire and Rick Nonnekes present their case to the Committee of the Whole meeting at the Town of Cobourg, advocating for the future of CT.

We in the NHCC have all benefitted from Cycle Transitions—whether it’s been a little mechanical assistance to repair your own bike, a venue for some valuable cycling safety training, or to take some winter bicycle maintenance workshops. CT has been instrumental in the NHCC certifying so many Can-Bike safety instructors!

Can you spare a little time tomorrow night to show up at the meeting at the Town Hall? We want the Town of Cobourg to recognize the importance of CT and the value it brings to the citizens of our community. 

Date: Monday November 13
Time: 6–7pm
Location: Cobourg Town Hall, Committee of the Whole meeting

    I’m going to ask the dumb question….what is the address of Cobourg Town Hall? I assume its on the main drag, but i am a PH girl with poor navigation skills!

      Hey Tara
      It’s the really big building with the town clock on top, across from the Royal Bank. Yep, smack dab in the centre of the main drag on King Street. Are you just another Port Hoper poking fun at Cobourg? Hope to see you there.

    This is such an important meeting to attend. Cycle Transitions gives so much to our Club, to local charities, and to the town in general. This is their hour of need and it will mean so much more if this presentation is supported by the local cycling community. Please do your best to attend.

    Yep, I’ll be there. It’s a small effort, considering what we stand to lose if CT can’t find a home.

  4. Paul Mils says:

    I plan too attend.

  5. Eileen says:

    Are they trying to close it down? Is the town trying to close it down?

    What’s the purpose of them going to the town?

    Cycle Transitions had to move out of the D’Arcy St premise. It is asking the Town for an “in-kind” Community Grant in the form of space in one of their buildings. CT will, in turn, continue its community work of safe cycling education, diversion of old bikes from landfill, donation of refurbished bikes to groups or individuals in need, sweat equity programs, as well as assisting with the Town’s bike rental program and the N’land hospital fundraiser Bike Up. Just to name a few of our efforts.

    I’m not going to make it tonight…my head could well explode from the pain. Hope you do get a good turn out!
