Happy 2014 Cobourg Cycling Club members!
In an effort to improve our club for the coming season and beyond, we’ve created a short, anonymous survey with some questions that will help us put more focus on the things that matter the most to you, the members. We’ll be reviewing the results before the start of the season so please, take a few moments in the next day or two and give your input.
Follow this link to take the survey Cobourg Cycling Club Survey
The more members that complete the survey, the better picture it will paint of what the club really wants and the sooner we can get cracking on improvements!
Check out this amazing video from the CCC’s Presqu’ile Pursuit that was held in late September. We’ll be doing this again in 2014 so stay tuned for an updated ride schedule coming soon! A big thanks to the Smith family for putting this video together.
