The NHCC Route Library on Ride with GPS

Just $45 for a whole calendar-year of Awesomeness

 

Here’s what the NHCC is up to!

Tuesday Night Hike: Feb 6, 6:00pm

We are hitting the streets of Port Hope for the Tuesday Night Hike. Best to bring a flashlight and wear good hiking shoes. We’ll head into Turtle Johns for Wings afterward (optional, of course). Estimating about 8-10km.

RSVP: Members, please RSVP using your Cycle Club account. Guests are welcome as always, but need to bring a signed waiver which is available on the website.

Call for 2024 Ride Leaders

The success of our ride season is entirely built on volunteers. The NHCC needs at least  Four (4) Primary ride leaders and four (4) Substitute Ride Leaders for each Level to best deliver a consistent reliable Ride Schedule.  We have about 220 rides needing leaders. We’re not looking for commitments to ride every single week—just some times, so others don’t have to do it every time at the expense of their enjoying some of the other club rides! 🙂

We have lots of routes and maps, mentors to help you out. We’ll develop a list of Primary Ride leaders and also a stash of Substitute Ride Leaders to fill in!

Think you could pitch in this year? A little or a lot, we’ll take it! Please RSVP by completing the form below. If unable to view form, you can email secretary@northumberlandhillscyclingclub.com to indicate you’ll be an NHCC hero!
