Stationary Bikeathon starts off Cobourg’s 3rd Annual Bike Week (Sat. June 1)

IMG_0246Cobourg’s Third Annual Bike Week starts this coming Saturday June 1st and to kick off awareness of Bike week there is a awareness event, the Stationary Bikeathon from 9am to 5pm. It takes place in front of Victoria Hall just like last year. Each of the three Bike Clubs in town are being asked to fill up the bikes with members in support of Bike Week and all things Cycling.

The NHCC needs volunteers 
It’s not a big strenuous effort, just 30 minutes of your time. Surely with all of our membership we can fill the 8 hours on the bike. We did it last year, and many of us enjoyed it so much that we hung around for big chunks of time. Just click on the link here and enter your name in a time slot for our club. Sign up now! Click here.

If the official time slots are full, don’t let that stop you from coming out to ride and show your support—There are a few extra bikes available (no signup) and the more NHCC riders the better!

Here are a few points to remember:

  • Times: 9am – 5pm
  • Helmets are required (we want to raise awareness here!)
  • Wear your NHCC jersey or NHCC T-shirt if you have one
  • Water will be available to riders
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your time slot

(This event is an initiative of Sustainable Cobourg’s Bicycle Action Committee.)
