Wednesday March 7 Evening Hike in Port Hope

The days are getting longer! That means there’s actually a little daylight at the start of our evening hikes and that means that cycling season is right around the corner. However, it’s not here yet so in the meantime, we hike! 

Start time: 6:00pm
Start location: Port Hope Town Hall Parking lot
Hike Leaders: Randy & Anita (Jim if he’s back in town on time!)


Great News, Cycle Transitions has found a new home!

Cycle Transitions logoThe following is a Message from CT:
Great news! The Town of Cobourg has agreed to lease space in the old Public Works yard (390 King St W) to Cycle Transitions. The building is a 7000 square foot refurbished storage/work garage of which CT will make use of approximately 2000 square feet. We expect to move in mid-March with a re-opening to take place the first week in April.

As more details are worked out and we are able to set dates, we’ll provide you with more information including a call for volunteers to assist with moving in and setting up. We’re looking at two March Saturday mornings, one for clearing space and installing partition fencing, the other for unloading the storage semi-trailer and setting up the shop.
A reminder that all memberships will resume with the re-opening.

We give many thanks to Cobourg Council and staff for assisting and supporting us. They really stepped up and made things possible!

Come support the proposal for Cycle Transitions’ new home (Monday)

Cycle Transitions logoAs you know, Cycle Transitions closed its doors last summer and has been looking for a new home since. We’re asking NHCCers to come out and support the proposal being be made to Town Council this Monday. Barry Thrasher, Director of Public Works will outline provisions for leasing Cycle Transitions approximately 2,000 square feet of space in the old Public Works building on King St west. The proposal has developed after many consultations with Mayor Gil Brocanier, Deputy Mayor John Henderson, Chief Administrative Officer Stephen Peacock and other town staff – all of whom have been extremely supportive and helpful! 

If Council approves the proposal, CT expects to re-open at the beginning of April just in time for the cycling season!! Please come out to show Council strong support for the proposal (wear your CT shirt if you have one).
