Level 2 Rides: Tues. May 1 and Thurs. May 3

Meet your Ride Coordinator: Geoffrey Honey
Geoffrey is a huge supporter of the NHCC, coordinating rides, imparting Safety Training and making the Level 2 rides an inclusive and rewarding experience for all. A certified CanBike instructor, Geoffrey knows the value of cycling safely and is happy to share his extensive knowledge. 

Our 2018 Season of Level 2 Rides Begins!
Please bring your membership card/ waiver form, YOUR helmet, some form of bicycle, a cheerful disposition, a water bottle, a windscreen clothing layer, (lights, just in case) and ENTHUSIASM! You are riding with one of the best cycling clubs in Ontario, maybe Canada. This is a Lycra/Spandex optional ride. I (Geoffrey) will not be wearing it, but you can if you want. However, we are happy to see High Visibility Clothing on our rides. We welcome all manner of safe cycling dress.

It is very important to have your tires at the right inflation so people with floor pumps who are driving to the rides, please bring them along. We will have “Sweeps” (a ‘cheer from the rear’ person who stays with the end of the line and keeps them safe and happy) on ALL our rides! If you can volunteer to Sweep for these rides, please chime in below in the comment section.

Our rides will begin with the basic safety rules for the club and some nifty riding tips. First rides, we will focus on hand signals, ABC bike check, and a quick bit on riding in a group. Tell us if you plan to ride either night in the comment section so we can keep an eye out for you.

Tuesday May 1, Level 2

Ride leader: Geoffrey Honey
Start time: 6:30pm
Route: After our safety checks, talk, and round of names, we will head out along Lakeshore and up Coverdale to King St. (We will thus avoid any conflict with the Cobourg Cycling Club Time Trials) Out along the Waterfront Trail bike lane to Archer’s Road and then back. There is only one hill/bridge that goes over the railway and we will wait and rest after it. Average speed will be no more than 15kph.

Route: After our safety chat and round of names, we will head out through New Amherst up  to Hwy 2, West along hwy 2 till Theatre Road and up to Telephone Road. Right along Telephone Rd. From there we will take the pulse of the group and either loop Telephone Rd to Danforth and back into town on University or we will go West on Telephone and then retrace our path home.
Start location: Westwood Park (on Carlisle St.)


  1. I will be there Tuesday. Question…I mailed in my cheque for the membership, will someone be there Tuesday to give me my membership card?

    • Hi Lisa,

      I’m the NHCC club secretary. I will have your card tomorrow. Planning to be there for the start of the ride, barring a late train.

      Welcome aboard!


  2. Hey Geoff,

    Sorry for late e mail. Long day at school. I am planning to attend Tuesday. I lost my membership card as it fell out of my bike bag. Sorry I will need to get another one.
    See you soon,

  3. Hi. I’m about to join the club and would love to come on the ride tonight. It looks like there is rain in the forecast; do you go rain or shine? I also plan to come to the welcome/anniversary ride on Sunday. Can’t wait! Thank you.
