The NHCC Nobel Prize—Make a nomination!

Each year we at the NHCC select a single individual for what we call the NHCC Nobel Prize that we award at the AGM, which by the way is next Thursday evening.  We’d like to get your input on who to choose. It can be anyone you feel makes the NHCC great. It has nothing do with speed & fitness, and everything to do with who they are and what they contribute to yours (and others) experience in the NHCC.

Virtual Club Ride – “Rouvy Thursday” November 16 at 6pm – Mallorca Spain


Got a smart trainer and want to keep up your fitness level? We are going to try out some virtual group rides and the first one will be this Thursday evening. There are many platforms to try, but this week we will give Rouvy a go for this inaugural virtual evening ride. It will be a nice & short 11 km ride, 2% grade and you can’t get dropped because the Rouvy Magnet “boosts” riders so that we automatically stay together. Like magic! There is no need to worry about pace—all levels will be able to keep up.

If you have a smart trainer you will need to set up a Rouvy account. We recommend using the free trial period to see how we all like it before committing further to the Rouvy platform. If you have any questions about how to get started feel free to call Randy at 905-376-8696.

Date: Thursday November 16, 6pm
Start location: Your house!

RSVP: 
Members please RSVP on the Event in Cycle Club so we know who to expect.  
Guests are welcome (no waiver required, lol)

Getting to the ride:
Login into Rouvy and navigate to Group Rides/Scheduled Events and scroll down to the Northumberland Hills Cycling Club event at 1800h.

2023 Year-end Membership Survey

It’s your chance to make a difference for next season. Our fantastic team of volunteers honestly give immense effort to steer the club in the right direction. We are always listening, but know that improvements can always be made.  Can you provide some completely honest and anonymous feedback (hopefully constructive!). Just 10 little ‘ole questions, that’s it. 

It’s Anonymous—Cuz we know that sometimes honesty may only come anonymously. 

What do we do with the results?

We present the overall highlights at our AGM (which takes place on Thursday November 23, 2023). Then over the winter months we work hard to factor in your feedback when planning and organizing next year’s grooviness.

We just can’t hold Helmut back—he’s got three rides posted for the week. Two gravel rides and mountain biking on Saturday. Plus, on Tuesday night we have our Halloween Hike.  Wear a spooky costume if you wish and throw some treats in your pockets. We can hand goodies to kids when we see them.  We’ll stick to hiking on roads & sidewalks this week, no off-roading.  Wouldn’t want to miss the trick or treaters. Likely we’ll head into an establishment afterward for a drink of some sort.
