100km (with All Level possibility) Ride: Sunday, September 23rd

We’re going to have a 100km ride this Sunday afternoon, but there’s no reason that you can’t make this ride what you want of it! We start at the Keeler Centre and head east to along Rednersville Road in The County to make it a 100km ride, but if anyone wants a slower and shorter ride, you can do it at your pace and turn around when you want. It helps if you leave a comment as to your intentions so any like minded riders can link together.

Date: Sunday, September 23rd
Start Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: Keeler Centre, Colborne
Ride Leader: none! But leave a comment so we can buddy up

Bike Up Northumberland! Saturday, September 15th

Media release- BIke Up Northumberland! 2018 – FinalBike Up Northumberland Poster 2018 (1). Bike Up Northumberland! is returning for the 4th year. This is a suppported charity bike ride with 5, 10, 25, 50, and 100km options raising money for life saving equipment for our local Cobourg and Campbellford hospitals. Our club has been closely involved since the beginning of this event with many members participating in the ride, working with Cycle Transitions in ensuring bikes are ride-ready, or volunteering as sweeps or manning the refreshment stations. David Pollack was co chair for the first year and Randy Albon succeeded him as co chair for the following two years.

One of our members, Liz Pollack will be riding on the Way to Go CMH team in memory of David. She’s participating in the 10km ride. If you are not riding, please support her or any participants raising money for our local hospitals.

Sign up today! Registrants raising $300 or more will receive an event jersey. Check out the Bike Up Northumberland website or facebook page for more information.

Call for Volunteers

I am also putting forth a call for volunteers for those not riding or any family and friends who would like to help out. This event is not possible without the fantastic support of those handing out refreshments and cheering on the riders, and the sweeps for each ride distance who make sure that everyone makes it back and receives medical or mechanical aid if required. If you can help please comment below or send an email to nhcycling2010@gmail.com.
