Videos of the May 1st ride are up!

We did it! 19 people showed up for our inaugural ride as the official Northumberland Hills Cycling Club. We battled the wind, but from all accounts everyone was happy. We had two helmet/bike cams rolling, as well as some still photography all of which have been made into two really fun videos. Check out the first two on our video page and see today’s bike ride from a new perspective.

Thursday May 5th, 37km ride, Donegan Park, 10am

We’re planning a 37.5km route that’s good and flat (meaning easy……sort of). The ride will start in town at Donegan Park, head east toward Wicklow Beach and then return. It’s an east/west route which usually means that wind could possibly be a factor. Please check wind conditions before heading out.

Also, NHCC is still taking new memberships. New riders who wish to join the club can bring a completed application form, signed waiver and applicable payment to the ride and give it to a ride leader. For membership information please click here.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: Donegan Park
Route map and directions: Click here
Ride Leader: Paul Mills

As usual:
1. Helmets are a must. No helmet, no ride.
2. Please arrive at the start point 15 minutes early to allow time for gearing up.

Please comment below indicating if you plan to ride, so that we can get an idea how many to expect. See you then!

The Non-Club turning into a Club

My Cycling Friends
Liability insurance and our non-club status has been a topic of discussion for some time now. Our little group has done well for being only a year old and has apparently survived the Winter. Several of you are out and riding now.
Myself and others believe that certain members, of the non-club, could be taking on undue personal liability by simply being active in posting or suggesting rides and routes, making website contributions etc.
