Thursday Night Hikes start Thursday November 1st!

The off-season evening hikes have been popular in past years! We meet at 6:00 then do a semi-urban hike where we’ll enjoy a lot of friendly laughs and stretch out those legs. We usually cover about 5-8 kms then afterward we sometimes pop into a local establishment for hot chocolate (or other such things). Bring a headlamp if you have one, or a small flashlight. You just never know where we’ll go!

Time: 6:00
Start Location: Port Hope Town Hall parking lot
Hike Leader: Jim Berg

2018 Membership Survey

It’s been a great season for cycling.  The NHCC is entirely volunteer-driven, and we encourage some feedback to let us know how we are doing. We are committed to always seeking ways to make the NHCC awesome, but we could use your input. Please take 5 minutes to fill out just 8 quick questions before the upcoming Annual Meeting and Social coming up soon on Thursday, October 25th, 2018.   We’ll share the results with everyone at the meeting!

We use the results to guide and direct the club for the next season as we do our planning over the winter. It’s totally anonymous, we promise (unless of course you choose to identify yourself).
