Saturday, September 21st: Discover L&A Ride

The Discover Lennox & Addington Ride has been going on for several years and is a fun opportunity to explore some of the Lennox and Addington area. This event is meant to be a more casual pace with stops along the way to partake of local treats and take in some local sights and history. A number of NHCC members have enjoyed this ride in the past and if anyone is interested in it, early bird registration ends August 15th. Even after that date the price is very reasonable.

Check out the details on the link. https://lennox-addington.on.ca/explore/discover-la-ride

Weekend Ride – Saturday, July 20th

The ride this weekend will be in Warkworth on Saturday, July 20th and we have options for all levels leaving the Warkworth Arena.
After the ride, if you wish, you can attend a great outdoor concert! In the afternoon, NHCC’s own Carmelo Amenta and his band Hilltop Project will be performing an outdoor concert at Maria’s. Admission is by donation and the proceeds will go to The Help Centre. All friends and family are welcome, and if they don’t ride but will come up with you, they can enjoy the unique artisan shops and some great coffee in the village of Warkworth or nearby Campbellford which is the home of Ferris Provincial Park, Doohers Bakery, Empire Cheese, World Finest Chocolate, and Church Key Brewery. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to eat at Maria’s place afterwards.
For all the details of the concert please leave a comment and we’ll forward them to you.

Here are your ride options:
Level 1: 18km relatively flat route
Level 2: follow the same route as level 1 as far as the chip truck at 29 and 30 then continue on towards Campbellford on the new paved shoulder as far as you desire, then turn and go back the same way to the arena.
Level 3: Link to Ride with GPS – 36 km
Level 4: Link to Ride with GPS – 62km
Please comment or send us a message if you are able to lead one of these rides or they can simply be self guided with our Ride with GPS. If you need help installing the Ride with GPS app on your phone send an email to Webmaster@northumberlandhillscyclingclub.com and we’ll get you underway!
