Using Ride with GPS, Mirrors, Online Bike Registry, and Construction

The weather is finally warming and the evenings are long!  Although we are not yet able to ride as a club, membership has its rewards.  If you are a current member of the NHCC please check out our ride library on Ride with GPS.  Turn by turn navigation is available using your mobile phone so you won’t get lost. You can check out Club Routes by going to the NHCC Club Page on Ride With GPS.

Want to give it a try? To inspire you to pump up those tires, here is an option for this week to ride solo or with one or two others.  Please note this is not an official club ride but simply a suggestion for you.  This is a 25km ride in and around Cobourg – 25km Cobourg West.

Hoping you can get out and enjoy some fresh air and that we will all be riding together in the near future.

Construction on Lakeshore Rd. in Port Hope

In the event that you are choosing a route in Port Hope, please be advised that there is construction on Lakeshore Rd. beginning at the corner of Hwy 2 and Lakeshore.

Update on the Rear-view Mirrors

We haven’t forgotten about all who have ordered mirrors! They ship from the US and along with all other parcels that cross the border these days, things are taking significantly longer than usual. Patience, and we’ll let everyone know the moment we have them in our hot little hands.

  1. I believe the Elgin St. repaving is already complete.
    And there will likely be periodic work at the Division Street / Kerr Street intersection as work on Kerr Street (east and west of Division) proceeds and traffic lights are relocated to this intersection from the street north of Kerr.
    Thank you for the newsy note.
