New Year Message from our Presedent

Happy New Year to all the members and families of the

Cobourg Cycling Club.

I propose a toast: To all cyclists, have a Happy New Year

filled with full lungs and strong legs.

My favourite day and night of the year passed on Wednesday,

the Winter Solstice.

Now’s the time to dust off the bikes and get your Base

training dialed in.

 

For years I have looked at the season in chunks.

The main winter chunk is here now.

For about 6-10 weeks we are blessed with some good solid

trainer time.

However, for hard core riders in the winter, Saturday and

Sunday can often provide some fine outside training.

These trips outside break up the dryness of indoor slugging

on the trainer.

 

I have seen Dr. Plue out over the past few weeks. I think he

is after Jamie’s time trial crown.

Winter trail riding is always fun too. On a nice day you

will be sheltered from the wind.

Throw some studded tires together and hit the snowmobile

trails early when it’s icy.

When you think you know your bike and trails or roads, add a

night ride.

This is the time of year to experiment with your riding.

 

Don’t shy away from the cold.

After all, most Canadians have skied or played hockey. If

you have ever been to an outdoor rink, how tough is outdoor

riding really?

Canada is still a young country and not everyone has

accepted that bicycles are powerfully versatile.

If you do go riding as described, ride with caution.

 

In downtown Toronto there are cyclists everywhere all year

long.

From couriers to commuters, the city is steeping with

bicycles.

Let’s get the Club’s Mojo rocking early this year.

When you start training now it justifies that extra helping

of Christmas Cheer.

Let’s get the bikes rolling.

 

Happy 2017,
GFatbikeclip

Pursuit Start time

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.
