Last Minute Triple Township Group Ride June 4th

Hey everyone, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to lead the Triple Township Ride this year but found some time and going to make it happen!

It’s going to be more like a Triple Township ‘Lite’ with only the 90k route offered this year (our 50k ride leader is 36 weeks pregnant 🙂 ) and a couple drinks on the deck but no feast, sorry!

Same as previous years, it’s a no drop ride but a very hilly route and definitely not an easy ride so bring your climbing legs! This will be a Level 3 ride

If you’d like to join in, email me for directions to our place  kevinj@cobourgcyclingclub.com

Check out the route map below.

Kevin’s Triple Township Ride Route Map
When? Saturday, June 4th. We leave at 9am so get there with enough time to gear up
Where? Leaves from Kevin and Kirsty’s place. Email for directions kevinj@cobourgcyclingclub.com
What to bring? 2 bottles of water, lots of food and some cash to re-fill at the store. A seat bag with spare tube/multitool and air.  Your climbing legs.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Kevin and Kirsty’s Triple Township Ride Saturday, June 20th

We’re pleased to announce that Saturday, June 20th will be the 4th annual Triple Township Ride.

Leaving from our place just North of Colborne, we’ll depart on a 90km (and 50km) ride through Cramahe, Brighton, and Haldimand townships. Twisty descents, fast flats, a few tough climbs and beautiful scenic views will be the order of the day and we’ll all end up back at our place for refreshments afterwards.

90km through the Hills of Northumberland isn’t an easy feat, so there will also be a shorter, 50km option led by Kirsty with a bit less climbing (but still challenging) to suit a wider range of riding abilities. The 90km loop will be a Level 3 ride and the 50k a Level 2

Check out the route maps below.

When? Saturday, June 20th. 90km leaves at 9am and the 50km at 9:30am
Where? Leaves from Kevin and Kirsty’s place. Please email kevinj@cobourgcyclingclub.com for directions.
What to bring? 2 bottles of water, lots of food and some cash to re-fill at the store. A seat bag with spare tube/multitool and air.  Your climbing legs.

Please email kevinj@cobourgcyclingclub.com and let us know if you plan on attending and which distance so we know how many riders to expect and how much food to prepare!

We hope to see everyone out, this ride won’t disappoint!

Thanks,
Kevin and Kirsty

Sunday’s Presqu’ile Pursuit

Click the pic to view the entire gallery
presqu'ile 2014Through wind and rain….and hail and cold…..many of the CCC’s bravest souls came out for some fantastic Sunday morning racing at the 2nd Annual Presqu’ile Pursuit.

Definitely not the ideal sunny day from last year, this time racers put themselves to the test in some very tough conditions and all crossed the finish line with a solid sense of accomplishment. It was Julie Herten who proved strongest and took the win for the women and Greg Cushing for the men, well done! You can find complete results below.

Thanks to all participants and volunteers who came out to make the Presqu’ile Pursuit a success. Hope to see everyone back next year, it will be warm and sunny, we promise!

Overview

The Presqu’ile Pursuit is an event hosted by the Cobourg Cycling Club and takes place on the Inner Loop of Presqu’ile Provincial Park in Brighton ON. It follows the structure of an Australian Pursuit bicycle race over 3 laps of roughly 6 Km each on a closed course in the park. This format allows a handicap for all riders based on current season Time Trial results or ability, allowing all participants an equal chance of success. The faster the rider, the later they depart the start line. First person to finish 3 laps wins!

Prequ'ile Park Loop

For those not inclined to race, attendance is highly encouraged to simply come out and ride the beautiful waterfront circuit at Presqu’ile (before and after the Pursuit), cheer on the racers and reminisce on a fantastic season during a BBQ lunch. 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.

For 2014 the club has rented the brand new enclosed Picnic facility on the inner loop of the park. A BBQ will be provided to encourage a season ending social gathering for Club members and other cycling enthusiasts alike. This is also the Start & Finish Line location. Bring your own food and drink and join us for a few hours in the park. We will be there rain or shine!

Timings

The “Pursuit” will take place between 10:30 and 11:30 AM. Pre-registration is required so that our time keepers can apply an appropriate handicap. If you are racing, please arrive no later than 10 AM to check in.

BBQ will follow with the grill “ready” by 12:00 Bring your own food and drink!

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 full road access.

Cost and Registration

Participants are responsible for costs incurred for Park entry. Ample parking is available on the West end of Lakehurst Street (300 Meters from the park gate) for those that wish to carpool or cycle into the park.

In order to offset facility rental, racers are asked to pay a modest $15 fee.

Please pre-register no later than Friday, October 3rd by emailing mtb@cobourgcyclingclub.com

Volunteer Requirements

  • 1 x Marshall at loop entrance
  • 1 x Marshall at Light House
  • 1 x Time Keeper at the Start/Finish Line
  • BBQ Attendant

**Please email us if you would like to volunteer**

Weather

We will proceed rain or shine! The enclosed picnic facility offers ample enclosed space for our social event!

A Great Day to Get Nasty!

With the help and hard work from some amazing volunteers, Sunday’s Northumberland Nasty went off without a hitch! We had a fantastic turnout both from the CCC and from other clubs from Kingston, to Ajax, to Peterborough. Conditions were near perfect which made for some blistering fast riding in both the 45 and 65km legs.

Thanks to all who came out to participate and a special thanks to the volunteers and organizing committee for everything you did to make it a success, we heard nothing but “I’ll be back next year!!” from all the participants!

2 Volunteers Needed for Northumberland Nasty

Just a reminder that our club’s first ever Northumberland Nasty is all set to go this Sunday, September 7th.  This is going to be an amazing off road event and will include both a 65 K and 45K course throughout some of our Counties most scenic routes.

If off road riding isn’t your thing or you just can’t ride that day and still want to help out, we are still looking for two volunteers to assist us in the short course sweep.  This basically involves driving behind the final group of riders on the 45K course from 10:00 to Noon to ensure everyone gets back safely. If you can ride shot gun or drive call Stewart at 905 373 3627.
