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.
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

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