Sunday May 15 (38.5 or 19.5km) from The Mill Restaurant, 10am

SMALL CHANGE OF PLAN!
This Sunday’s ride will now depart from The Mill Restaurant in Cobourg (not Donegan Park) with an optional Lunch at the restaurant afterward! (spouses and friends welcome).

This week’s short route (19.5km) bypasses the worst hill. A big thank-you to Paul for mapping out the route.

Start time: 10:00am

Thursday May 12, (23 or 38 km) from Donegan Park, 10am (again!)

It was such a great route, we’re doing it again on Thursday morning. 38km, or a 23km short route, your choice. We all agree that the first half was a little on the hilly side, but the scenery and easier riding in the second half are well worth the effort.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: Donegan Park

Ride Leader: Paul Mills will lead the short ride. **Leader for the long ride TBD

Please comment below indicating if you plan to ride and if you are interested in either the long or the short route. (Don’t worry, you can always change your mind).

Sunday May 8th: (38 or 23km) from Donegan Park, 10am

We’ve got a 38km route for this coming Sunday that’s got a few hills for ya. Don’t worry, it won’t kill you! And if you really think it might, we’ve got a 23km “shortcut” route that will be just fabulous too. Thanks to Brian Hedney for developing this Sunday’s route.

Videos of the May 1st ride are up!

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.

Thursday May 5th, 37km ride, Donegan Park, 10am

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.
