No Monday Nighter this week but we have 2 of Dan’s Daytime Rides (Thursday + Saturday) happening as well as another Wednesday Night Tempo Ride. Go check out CycleClub App for more details and sign up for the week’s rides!
At the finish of last night’s time trial, it was decided to end the event for this year.
Next week sunset is 7:24 pm. This would likely cause the need for lights on the way back. No time trial rider wants lights on their bike.

No Monday Nighter this week, but the rest of the week is jam packed! Tuesday we’ll TT, Wednesday we’ll have a Tempo Group Ride. Dirty Thursday will be an easy MTB in the Forest.
This Friday and Sunday will be the first of a series of Daytime Rides hosted by Dan Daniels. Dan is the newest addition to our roster of Ride Hosts. He has kindly volunteered his time to Host these daytime rides for Members who prefer morning rides over evening rides. Come and join Dan as he explores the area and all the hills it has to offer! Dan’s rides are No Drop as are all our group rides.

This week’s rides are posted so go sign up in CycleClubApp for the week’s adventures!
Monday night will see a climb or two. Tuesday we’re TT’ing. Wednesday boasts a route designed around downhills (Woohoo!!), and Thursday is a MTB ride in the forest.
All our rides are No Drop. Don’t forget to bring front and rear lights with you as daylight is dropping quickly these days.
Seeeeeee yoooouuuu there!!
Do you have an unused Cobourg Cycling Club jersey that you would be willing to part with?
We have members that are looking to purchase some club kit. ‘the thought here is acquire the kit as soon as possible.
If there is not enough available we will look into reordering.
Please send a message to email@example.com and I will try to get people together.
People wanting club kit send me a message too. We will run this on a first come first served basis. First small Jersey available will go to first request etc.
I may be in over my head (again).
Condition, size, price expected would be enough information.
This Saturday, August 14th from 10am to 1pm the Cobourg Police Services are hosting a Bike Rodeo which focuses on Bike Safety in the Canadian Tire Parking Lot at 1125 Elgin Street.
Though generally geared towards children, the CPS are inviting anyone who wishes to learn or refresh their skills to participate. There are prizes to be won in a draw (bikes, helmets, vouchers to local businesses and restaurants). You’ll also have an opportunity to Register Your Bike which may help in getting your bike back to you in the event of theft.
Here’s a link with more info on Saturday’s event : https://cobourgpoliceservice.com/2021/07/26/cobourg-police-services-bike-rodeo-is-back/
Right now (4:30pm) the radar shows very scattered storm cells.
At this time the TT is OK to go.
See you there.
The weather forecast for today is looking gloomy.
Again timing of the storms will decide if we can get the riders on the road.
I will try to make a call later this afternoon.
A bit of a different week! We have TTs on Tuesday (the Archer’s Road 15km course), a group ride on Wednesday night out of Grafton, another Dirty Thursday, and a daytime destination long ride on Friday that has us exploring the County and includes a ride on the Glenora Ferry.
Which rides will you sign up for???
We’ve created a Club Team for the Hike, Bike + Bark for Hospice Fundraiser for Ed’s House. On September 4th, 2021 we’ll lead a Club ride that ends at the BBQ for the finale of this 2 week event.
