Pancake Ride Outline

The pancake ride distance is 60km, give or take a few… Mostly give a few. The ride for the social folks will be around 3 hours, give or take a few. Food time usually takes about 30 minutes. 

If 60km seems too far, participants can pick up with the bunch in Centreton. The pack will be no more than a 1/2 hour getting to the turn onto MacDonald road.

Bring some money, bring some water. The smiles will already be there.

 

 

Cycle Transitions – Mechanics wanted

This is a call out to CCC members to see if anyone is interested in becoming a bicycle mechanic for Cycle Transitions.(CT)

Now that CT has it new premises they are scheduling to be open Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6.30 to 9.00 pm and Saturdays 9.00 am to noon.

For those who have forgotten and those who didn’t know CT is a self-help do it yourself Bike shop geared to help people keep their bikes on the road and encourage cycling for the average commute.  We are involved in cycle ride training (CanBike) courses.  Running safe cycling at schools. Some of our members are also involved in the Bicycle action committee who are working hard to have safe cycling paths through and around Cobourg and the county.  We are recognized by the Cobourg Town Council who are giving us their full support, hence the use of their old works yard building for our new premises.

I would encourage all club members to come visit the shop at 390 King Street West, during our opening hours, and see what we have to offer.  Also we would like to have members as volunteers.

Please Contact Dave Singfield for more information or to express your interest.

 

Thursday night Tempo ride

Thursday does not look very promising this week. Keep your fingers crossed and the weather may cooperate.

As planned we will meet at the Diamond Head Industrial Mall Thursday April 19. From there the format changes. The first couple of rides will be out and back along the lakeshore. Time to get a little spin on without any big hills. Time to check out the TT course. Time to get back on yer bike.

The out and back will permit the big guns and those more prepared to ride hard fast and far. The rest of us can ride at a not so hurtful pace (For now). 

If you wish to cut from the pack, Either pack that will be fine. The more fit riders can work as sweeps on the way back.

Pick your distance/time.

Ride the complete trip if you so please.

Ride at the front until dropped. Then ride until you need to turn around and  head home.

Tear your legs off or just get back in the spin. 

More or less you won’t be trying to get home by yourself.

You won’t be cold. It’s warmer than you think. Though layers, zippers and foot warmers are still nice to have.

Bring water, 

See you there.
