This ride is 80km and will take you into three different townships. There are new roads that the NHCC hasn’t taken before, so this should be a great ride. If you are interested in making the route a little shorter, please use the commenting section below and perhaps Jamie could offer some suggestions. A big thanks to Jamie for developing this route!
Note: At the moment, there is no “printable map” available, so you will have to take some notes of your own from the link below.
Start time: 9:00am

Does it start at the community center? I plan to be there
Oops. Read everything Jim as Jamie already stated it starts at the community center.
Yes!! This ride starts at the community centre. If we have enough agreement we could start in town.
My preference is to start in town but that is only a preference, not a requirement
I will ride from Donegan at 8:30 Jim
Vivian. C U at Donegan Park at 8:30.
This looks like it could be a lot of fun. I’ll be there at the community centre.
I plan to ride from Donegan @ 8 30.New route for but my printer is down.
Hi ! I drove this route in my car this morning & Jit is fantastic ! Lots of variety and views & not too hilly after all.
Jamie said I could let you know some changes to make to the list of turns… so here goes !
At 4.23 km it is a Left onto OGrady____at 9.21 km it is a left___at 33.51 you need to turn Right onto Trottman Road & there is not a street sign___ at 35.46 turn Right and then stay on Telephone Road until 36.36___at 36.36 turn Left onto Honey Road___at 39.41 the sign says Heeley (not Durham)
Hope that’s clear enough !
(also I got confused going through Castleton – but basically just fly right through, no turning needed) Enjoy !!
I plan to ride but I will start from Donegan @ 8:30
Don’t ride out from town too hard. We know you are going to meet us at the community centre.
Wow what a ride and not for the faint of heart. The many hills and brisk wind made for a very challenging ride. Marianne, I don’t think you drove Jamie’s route. Relatively flat – I don’t think so.
always different perspective in a car!!
Do you want to ride on Tuesday?
Mike – I won’t be back until late Tuesday or wednesday morning. I hope to be on the Thursday ride. I might even try to make the Sunday (tomorrow) ride. I think Vivian is going to start out again at 8:30 from Donegan
C U on Thursday
Jamie Thanks for leading today. I enjoyed the new route for me even though I took the ‘OLD SHELTER VALLEY ‘ shortcut which was 66k instead of 80. I bent my front derailleur so had to climb using my big ring. Next time I will be able to use the snall ring.
