Sunday July 8th Century Ride- Cobourg to Presquille Return

This Sunday, we’ll head out from town and go east along Lakeshore making the Lighthouse at Presquille our turnaround point.

We’re expecting the pace to be a level 3/4 but if you’re interested in making this a shorter ride or slower pace ride, please comment below. Dont’t be shy! Others might jump if you comment.

This is not a supported ride, so please come prepared for the distance with snacks, lots of water and some bucks for refueling along the way.

Ride leader: Raff Melito
Start time: 8:30 am
Start location: Cobourg Memorial Arena and Rec Centre, 206 Furnace Street

Special Note: If this is a distance you’re interested in completing but haven’t tried yet, come out and join us. This is the most flat route in the area and a great way to meet that goal of your first 100k.

Every year we see club members compete their first century ride and this achievement is celebrated at the Fall AGM. This Sunday, Carson Jones, a new club member, and new rider is aiming to complete his first century ride.

There may be others who have progressed through the ride levels like Carson who may be ready to try this memorable cycling milestone. We hope to see you.

  1. Hi Everyone: We have always wanted to do a century ride and this Sunday sounds like a good time to try. The weather is supposed to be OK. We will start with the group at 8:30 am but will be riding at a level 2 pace and do not want any of the faster riders to stay back. Perhaps there will be other riders at our level that will join in. If not, we will enjoy the ride anyway. We will likely end up having lunch some where as we expect that our ride will cover lunch time.

    Thanks
