Tuesday is one of those Go – No Go days. At this time the risk of rain is about 50%. I will be working tomorrow so the weather call will be after 4PM. If I don’t post the race is on.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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!

CFB Surf and Turf
CCC member Harold Kuschnik was also at the Surf and Turf competing in the road bike & swim. In addition he also coached the winning high school team (4th place overall) … ENSS Blue Dragons.
Mount Tremblant Granfondo
Several club members travelled to Mont Tremblant last weekend for the MTGF and had a great time on and off the bike!
Gord and Patti Ley, Mark and Linda Essak, Brad West and Jason Wooland (along with several other friends) participated in events from 80k to 160k that traversed the scenic area around Tremblant. The “race” was controlled by keeping pelotons at set average speeds. Gord finished first in the 160k, peloton 2 while Brad just missed the podium coming 4th in the hill climb in the same peloton.
The cycling was great and the fun and food shared by everyone was excellent! MTGF is a great event and a good excuse for a relaxing weekend away with friends.
Sunday Morning Coffee Ride
Eight members came out today for beautiful morning of casual riding in the rolling hills of northumberland and a nice cup of coffee. Hopefully we can get more weekend rides going but need your help. If you would like to lead a weekend group ride please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCC members Tim Doris, Chris Herten, and Jeff Clark took top podium spot on Friday in the 29th annul CFB Trenton Surf and Turf relay division. All three members earned podium spots in their respected legs. Tim completed the first 7.4 km run leg in an impressive 30:33. Chris continued that blistering speed averaging 38.4km/hr over the 23km road bike course, and Jeff’s gamble of using a CX bike on the MTB course seemed to pay dividends.
Any CCC member competing in races, event or wishing to highlight other cycling related activities your involved in, please send details to email@example.com so we can share your experiences with the club.
There has been interest expressed in a B group ride tomorrow. If there are people interested in riding the route at a slightly slower pace tomorrow (closer to level 2) please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming you wish to ride in the B group. If no confirmations are received we will just have the one group.
Sunday, June 7th – Coffee Ride Anyone (Take 2)
Time: 9:00am sharp.
Start Location: Cobourg Memorial Arena , 206 Furnace St, Cobourg, ON K9A 3C3
Description: Lets hope the weather cooperates this weekend. This ride will be a level 3 no drop ride. We will have a stop in Port Hope after 55km to socialize and grab a coffee/pastry. Pace will vary on terrain but likely average 25-30m/hr before we grab a coffee. We will regroup at the top of any hills. There will be no stores before Port Hope therefore bring enough supplies for the ride.
Ride Leader: Jeff Clark
