Ride Reminder – Friday, August 19

Pete's RoutePete and Ruth are hosting Friday’s ride. So if you’re in town and keen for a ride, especially after a rainy week, do join us for a 5:30 start!

Pete has done his best to create a route that optimizes the downhills and makes it possible to cut out before the worst uphill – see green line!!!!

We’ll have plenty of maps available for riders, and for any latecomers, we’ll leave some on a vehicle.

Feel free to park on the lawn. Looking forward to the potluck that will follow. If you dare, bring your suit for a relaxing dip in the hot tub after the ride.

Ride Reminder – Friday, August 5 – PLEASE READ

Ride YToday’s ride hosted by Vivian and Harold was AMAZING! We rode the Y Ride? route – what a glorious tour of our beautiful Northumberland Hills. We had farmland. We had rolling hills. We had Bickle Hill. We had beachfront. We even cycled through a little tree-lined trail called Molly.

Y Ride? Y not? Especially with so many awe-inspiring cycling routes we can follow.

So join us for Friday’s ride! It will start at 5:30 from the Port Hope Town Hall. If you plan to ride, please comment on this post (ideally before 10:00 a.m. on Friday) so that we know we’ll have companionship! And feel free to suggest a route from one of our local route maps.

Note regarding Friday rides for August & September

Given a shortage of Friday hosts this season, the Friday calendar for August and September no longer states “Ride needs Host”. Instead, it alternates between a Port Hope Town Hall start and a Cobourg Community Centre start. Only one Friday ride in August has been claimed – Pete and I finally picked a date! September is wide open.

If you would like to host any of the open rides, from your home or from an alternate starting location, contact Doug, your Ride Coordinator for the remainder of the season. See his email address in the calendar on each date. Also, be reminded that in October, all rides other than the Thanksgiving ride from Katherine’s, will move to either a Saturday or Sunday, host decides.

Note regarding Tuesday rides for August

There are still two dates looking for a host in August – next Tuesday (August 9) and August 30. Please contact Marshall if you would like to host. If you can host next Tuesday, the sooner you contact him, the better!
