Cycling Riders Needed for Friday Photo Shoot

Cycling models for Chris

Hi there,

.
I am looking for 2 or 3 models who know their cycling safety guidelines and have the ability to get bikes up to the Dejong Road area north of Cobourg. We are shooting for about an hour and a half Friday at 9:30 a.m.  It’s a volunteer gig as usual and the footage will be used for a safety training video as well as potentially for Northumberland Tourism. I have no specific requirements for age or ethnicity, we just want to make sure riders have the appropriate safety equipment and understand the “rules of the road”.
I apologize by the way, this email was supposed to go to you on Tuesday and this morning I realized it didn’t actually send. I understand it’s short notice so you may not be available.
Please let me know if you’re available or if you have any questions. Thanks so much for your help!
All the best,
Angela.

2016-08-25 Thursday night Ride

Greg has been putting out a good effort to encourage participation in the Thursday Night Ride. This week he is adding some extra social interaction to the ride. If you don’t plan to ride maybe socializing after the ride will fit. See you there?

From Greg

The long evenings for riding are waning now.
Weather permitting
6 – 8 pm group ride – not easy
Brent’s SVR loop

This week, in celebration of the great summer of riding we had, I propose a
social time after the ride.
It is pretty much “street lights on” by 830 pm now.
If the ride is finished say about 8pm, there is enough time to get together at
830 for some cycling repartee.
I think in the past the CCC has met at Frank’s Joint on King Street E. I suggest
the same.
I am sure that there is cold beer and hot wings for those that want it.
Open to all CCC members and associates….

Shelter Valley TT Reminders (Please Read)

1) All riders of the time trial are reminded of the resurfacing of Shelter
Valley Road that took place earlier this season. This roadwork has deposited a thick layer of
pea gravel on the road shoulders. Avoid riding on the road shoulders. It is very
loose and slippery there. The hard surface of the road has discernible tracks to follow. These are the
better/smoother/faster lines on the road. Using the right hand line will ensure
that you avoid the pebbles and leave space for automobiles to pass.

2) All riders, please be aware that there is still on-going construction on the
tunnel for the creek. As a result, through the road tunnel, on the west side
(returning lane), there is a row of traffic delineators. Do not ride into these
pilon-like devices. The delineators are made of hard rubber. If you hit these,
they will win. Hold your line through the tunnel. Know where you are on the road
at all times.

Best of luck.

C y’all Tuesday,
