The 2023 NHCC AGM & Social Festivity: Thursday November 23, 2023

It’s our 2023 AGM & Social Festivity! All NHCC members & guests are welcome. Here’s how it goes—we do a little official club biz to get it out of the way (legal requirements and all), then get down to the good stuff—Socializing! Reconnect with friends you’ve made over the past year of NHCC activities and help us celebrate a successful 2023 season! You’ll elect & meet the Directors for next year (2024) and you’ll get a chance to discuss Club matters of the past and future! And hey, there’ll be free refreshments (that alone makes it worthwhile!). Best of all, you can renew your memberships for next year at the special AGM rate of just $35.

Date: Thursday November 23th, 2023
Time: 6:30pm
Location: Baltimore Recreation Centre
Agenda: Agenda for the 2023 AGM

RSVP (important): We need to know how many people are coming so that we can adequately plan refreshments. RSVP on your Cycle Club Events Calendar. Leave a comment in the Discussion section if you plan to bring a guest (is we can keep track of numbers).  You may also email us at secretary@northumberlandhillscyclingclub.com

Off-season activities: Hike, Road Ride, Gravel or Mountain bike—Take your pick!

There’s still a little sun in the forecast and the fall colours are still out—not bad for mid-October.  We have the Evening Hike on Tuesday, a road ride on Wednesday and also a few mountain biking opportunities.

More details about all rides are found in your Cycle Club account Events page (Members only).

Tuesday Evening Urban Hikes are starting!

Since evening rides have been squeezed out, we’ll start our Evening Hikes this coming Tuesday.  This is an opportunity to keep our legs moving, to explore Port Hope and Cobourg on two feet, and also get some social time in afterward (optional, of course).  We typically meet at 6:00 and go out for 1.5-2 hours of walking which usually translates into about 7-10km.  We’ll start out with shorter distances of course and build up as time goes by. 

We don’t just walk up and down the “regular” streets—oh no, no, no—at times we go off-road, down little alleyways, through hidden paths, maybe even along the beach.  Places you won’t find on your bike! So be sure to wear some comfy footwear, and layer for the weather. 

RSVP: As usual, let us know you are coming by RSVPing to the Cycle Club Events Calendar.

Guests are welcome provided they bring a signed waiver (no cost).  

Level 2 Ride, Tuesday Night

Another ride option has been added to the calendar—Tuesday Night Level 2 ride (October 3), starting at 5;30 at the arena on in Grafton. More information can be found in your Cycle Club Events calendar, where you can also RSVP. Make hay while the sun shines—the forecast is stellar!

Off-Season Rides: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this week

The sun is shining and summer feels as though it’s just hanging on for dear life! We’re making the most of this, therefore you will find three off-season Level 3/4 rides posted for this week. Thursday morning is a Fall Colours Ride of about 50km—it’s flat and there’s sure to be some fantastic fall colours, so there’s that! Then mountain biking on Saturday morning. Further details are in your Events calendar (members only), so please RSVP there.
