Girls night out – Monday July 7th

Attention Female CCC members:

We received enough interest and therefore Monday, July 7th will be the inaugural Girls Night Out group ride.

When:  Monday July 7th, 2015 – 6:15 meet,  6:30pm rolling out.

Start Location:  Merwin Greer School, 457 King street East Cobourg.

Route: Heading East on Hwy 2 to Archers road, right on Archers and onto Lakeshore following all the way to the Keeler Centre for a break and then back to Merwin Greer school. If the weather or the ability of the group is limited, then we will only go as far east as possible then turn back.

Description:
This is not a training ride of speed, rather the goal is to get our female members out on a regular basis and more involved with clubs activities.  Hopefully these rides will build inspiration to come out and try other club rides and events, such as Tempo and Time Trials. This is a NO drop ride!!!

This Weeks Ride Schedule – June 29th – July 5th

TT Race Report – June 16th, 2015

A season high 21 riders made it out Tuesday to race against the clock in the close to perfect conditions. Although it was slightly slower than last week (0.49%) many riders still achieved their fastest times of the season.  Cal Ripken would also be proud of the attendance streak that Jana, Stewart, Gord Plue, and Jamie have going.  These four CCC members have yet to miss a single time trial this season.  Therefore special reminder that the next two time trials are at the Shelter Valley Rd course in Grafton.

CCC Gravel Road Ride Report – June 11th, 2015

The rain left a few puddles on the course but mostly things were fast and dry last night as we did the 45km Northumberland Nasty course backwards.   We doubled our turn out from last time but hopefully more members can attend in the future.  These rides are a great social time and hard workout with lots of rolling hills, little drafting, and always changing road conditions.

Hopefully see everyone on the next gravel road ride on July 9th.
