Place: Meet on Shelter Valley Road just north of Hwy 2. We’ll drive up to the starting point together

Hike Night, Wed. the 10th: That’s where the cool folks are!

Yep, Wednesday night hikes is where you’ll find a small but dedicated group of NHCCers who are making sure we keep moving with some off-season activity. We typically go out for about 1.5 hours and often head into a local establishment for tea afterward. (okay, so some partake in a beer). This week, Randy and Anita are going to lead the way. To where, we don’t really know yet. Afterall, when we aren’t on the bike, we are like fish outta water, but we do have fun!

Start time: 6:00pm
Start location: Port Hope Town Hall parking lot
Pseudo hike leaders: Randy and Anita

Leave us a comment, let us know you are coming.

Wednesday Night Hike: 6:00pm (December 3)

Notice: No hike tonight (November 19)
The weather looks, well….a little white out there. Sorry to disappoint the hardy crowd, but we are going to postpone the hike. Stay indoors and stay warm & safe.

Sunday Nov. 16: Hike at 12 noon

We’ll be hiking on trails southwest of Warkworth. It’ll be fairly hilly with a mix of forest and fields. Be sure to bring fluids and a snack.

Since it’s a bit of a drive it may be a good idea to car pool. Port Hope folks can meet at Gilmer’s Home Hardware and leave there at 11:15 to swing by the 45/401 car pool lot to meet up with anyone leaving from Cobourg at 11:30. Please let us know if you are coming and whether you’re interested in sharing a ride, and we’ll give you the address and directions. nhcycling2010@gmail.com
