In the news – July 7th

Girls Night Out

The first “Girls Night Out” ride was a success.  Five girls made it out Monday for the inaugural ride, which included Janet Baitley, Nancy Bruce, Julie Herten, Christina Poort and Erin Warder (on a mountain bike no less – kudos for that alone). They covered 42K tonight all the way to Lakeport and back and everyone had a great ride…. so great they decided to not wait and ride again next week, July 13th.  If you missed this one come out next Monday. 

Time: 6:15pm meet/6:30pm roll out  July 13th, 2015.
Start Location: Merwin Greer School, Cobourg

Sunday Morning Century

Short notice, but for those who made it out for the 160k century ride to Wellington it was awesome. The great weather, and super smooth loyalist parkway, made the long trek to the Tall Poppy in Wellington go by in no time.  Lots of cyclists seen along the way, and great group riding with Kevin and Tony made for a memorable day.  Stay tuned for another century ride in August with hopefully a little more notice.

Century in the county – July 5th

Since last weekend was a right off due to weather a few of us are planing a century (160km) ride to Wellington and back tomorrow (Sunday June 5th). If you would like to join this will be ridden at a similar in pace to Kevin’s Triple township ride (~30km/hr avg over the 160km, aprox 5 1/2hr of ride time). We will stop in Wellington for a nice break, coffee, muffin etc. as well potential stops in Brighton if anyone needs to buy water, food. Route will be flat with some nice fast sections once we get into the county. Weather looks perfect.  This is a long ride so bring your cell phone just incase.  Please email communications@cobourgcyclingclub.com if you plan on attending or vote on the Facebook site.

Girls night out – Monday July 7th

Attention Female CCC members:

We received enough interest and therefore Monday, July 7th will be the inaugural Girls Night Out group ride.

When:  Monday July 7th, 2015 – 6:15 meet,  6:30pm rolling out.

Start Location:  Merwin Greer School, 457 King street East Cobourg.

Route: Heading East on Hwy 2 to Archers road, right on Archers and onto Lakeshore following all the way to the Keeler Centre for a break and then back to Merwin Greer school. If the weather or the ability of the group is limited, then we will only go as far east as possible then turn back.

Description:
This is not a training ride of speed, rather the goal is to get our female members out on a regular basis and more involved with clubs activities.  Hopefully these rides will build inspiration to come out and try other club rides and events, such as Tempo and Time Trials. This is a NO drop ride!!!
