Presqu’ile Pursuit Registration Don’t delay!

Time to sign up for the Presqu’ile Pursuit. Signing up early will help to ensure your proper starting Position.

As of this Posting 12 men and 3 women have committed to the event.

From Chris:

Numbers are strong at the moment with 15 already signed up. (This includes 3 women!) I know there are more people interested. I think we have the potential of 25 with a little bit of work. This would make it the best attended CCC event to date.

Published sign-up deadline was Wednesday Sept 28th to give Dave some time to run the start order.

Also looking to see if we’re on track with our volunteers? I’m assuming Dave is “in” but I also requested at least 1 Marshall (lighthouse) and a BBQ attendant. Second Marshall at the loop entrance would be nice but not entirely necessary if we’re short on people.
If you are not inclined to enter the event, volunteering to marshal is a nice way to participate. (

To register for the event or to volunteer please contact either Dave or Chris.

Dirty Thursday 2016-09-22

 

 

 

 

Today is a great day for a MTB ride. After work you are looking at 40KPH gusts out on the road. Trees are your friend on windy days. If anyone would like to start early I will be at the Beagle
club parking area around 4:30. Bring some lights if a longer ride would be desirable.

Planning to ride on Thursday evening? The group will leave the parking area at 6pm. The group (if we have one) will return to pick up any late arrivals after a loop on the red. Then a loop on the orange trail. One more time back to the parking area. Then out on the blue.
Last night the riding was good without lights until 7:30.
A good workout but not harsh

Dirty Thursday’s

With the end of summer comes MTB season. At this time usable light is gone ​at
7:30. Lights are a great ride extender. Though not everyone has lights.
To be safe we will try riding at the Beagle Club at 6pm. Running laps we will return to the parking lot to pickup with any riders that arrive later.
​The Group will also be able to get back to the parking area before dark.

Easy riding to become acquainted with your neglected Mountain bike.

If you have lights please bring them along.

Tempo in the Park Night

Thursday evening will be warm and muggy. Therefore a little rain (if rain does happen during the ride) may have a nice cooling quality.

EC says the chance of rain is low.

We will be wet from the inside out anyway… This is a tempo ride! Maybe bring a towel.

Come on down and enjoy the park. Think of this as the Pursuit preride.

If you don’t want to tempo ride just bring your bike and ride in the park. Some club time would be a nice way to spend the evening.

Your Invitation to the Presqu’ile Pursuit. (Please Read)

The Presqu’ile Pursuit

Presented by: The Cobourg Cycling Club

Saturday October 1st, 2016

 

Dear Cobourg Cycling Club Member,

As our season winds down, the Cobourg Cycling Club is pleased to announce the running of the Presqu’ile Pursuit on Saturday, Oct 1st in Presqu’ile Provincial Park, Brighton.

This event follows the structure of an Australian Pursuit bicycle race covering 3-4 laps (depending on handicap) of 6.6 Km each within the parks inner loop. This format allows a handicap for all riders based on ability or current season Time Trial results giving all participants an equal chance of success. The faster the rider, the later they depart the start line. First person to cross the finish line after the set distance wins!

For those not inclined to race join us for lunch and ride the beautiful waterfront circuit at Presqu’ile (before and after the Pursuit) at your own pace. Members of neighbouring clubs are welcome to join us for the non-competitive portion of this event in order to see what the CCC is about and to promote future membership initiatives. Invite your cycling friends, bring you families, come out and enjoy the park.

For 2016 the club will again make use of the enclosed Picnic facility on the inner loop of the park. A BBQ lunch will be provided for racers. Additional meals can be purchased for family and friends.

The “Pursuit” will take place between 10:30 and noon. Pre-registration is required so that our time keepers can apply an appropriate handicap. If you are racing, please arrive no later than 9:30AM to check in and warm up. The BBQ will follow immediately after the race. Leisure cycling is encouraged outside of Pursuit timings. Bring your family and ride one of the most scenic venues in Northumberland County. We simply ask that you remain clear of the course during the actual event in order to allow racers a clear road.

 

Equipment

Leave your TT bikes at home! Due to the nature of this event, a road bike is necessary as you will be riding in close proximity of others. Speedy helmets, booties, wheels etc. are at your discretion. We won’t judge 😉

 

Cost and Registration

Participant fee is $15 and includes lunch. Additional meals will be $7. Funds will be collected on race day. Please bring cash and exact change if possible.

Please pre-register no later than Wednesday Sept 28th by emailing chrisherten@hotmail.com Don’t forget to include additional lunch requirements for family / friends to assist in our planning.

We will proceed rain or shine! The enclosed picnic facility offers ample enclosed space for our social event if the weather doesn’t co-operate.

Check out our page on facebook for pics, videos, info and chat!

 

See you on the 1st.

 

Chris

 

The week of September 5 – 11

Two time trials left this year. Some of the podium positions at being well challenged. The time trial is also a good way to determine how well your training has done this year.

Thursday is Tempo in the Park night. Presqu’ile Park!!!! Why not come for the ride. Come on down even if to just enjoy the scenery. We don’t have to keep up with the big guns. Tempo ride.

Saturday is the Bike up Northumberland event. Use the link to register. Good for your legs and good for our hospitals. Presqu'ileGate

Tempo in the park 2016-09-08

Chris Herten has offered to lead a Thursday tempo in Presqu’ile Park. September 8  6:00 pm depart at the Park entrance gate.

If you are late I am sure you can catch up with the group aka Jeff last year.

This is a lot of fun. A ride in a different location usually add a little more enthusiasm.

The Pursuit (in another upcoming post) will soon be here consider this a preride and practice.

Our Thursday night ride will be leaving Mervin Greer school at its regular 6:00pm departure. Greg has been a fantastic leader with this ride. He has learned how to push, without discouragement leaving participants looking forward to the next ride.

Come on out this week. Get your legs ready for the ride in the park.TJ CRIT CHRIS
