Swing in Port Hope and other Announcements

port-hope-swingGreetings Freewheelers on this wintery Northumberland Hills evening.

We hope you are enjoying a pleasant winter, whether here in cold Canada or somewhere warmer for the lucky ones among us who are galavanting around the world. We’re writing with a request, a last-minute invitation, and an announcement for two upcoming bike events worth adding to your calendar.

Ganaraska Freewheelers Survey

Many of you have replied to our recent 10-question survey we sent to you at the beginning of February. Thank you!  There are still @ 10 of you who have not yet had a chance to reply. If you haven’t seen an invitation to complete our survey, can you double check your junk mail to see if it took a detour away from your inbox? The execs and volunteers will be meeting in March to discuss your ideas and make plans for the upcoming cycling season.

Swing Dance in Port Hope – Saturday, February 11

And now back to Swing. If you have nothing better to do this weekend, join a few of us for the Port Hope Swing Dance event at the Lions Club – 29 Thomas Street. Tickets are $18 at the door which opens at 7:15, but if you purchase online or at stores in Port Hope, you’ll pay only $15. The Northumberland Club also put the word out, so it could be a cyclist reunion! If you can’t dance, no worries, they’ll teach you how. Alternatively, you can sit with Pete and watch.

Tour de Grande – Sunday, June 11, 2017

According to Sue P., the Tour de Grande from Cambridge is a great ride. Routes range from 10 to 160 kilometres – something for everyone. Mark it on your calendar and celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Bike across Missouri (BAM) – June 10 to 16, 2017

If you’re up for a longer tour, the Big BAM is another recommendation from Sue P. who has already signed up! $250 US per person (or a little less if you’re a couple) will buy you 6 days of cycling and live music. With a few other costs to drive there, take a shuttle to the starting location, upgrade accommodation and feed yourself, it’s still a bargain!

For any of the above, use the Comments to ask your questions and express your interest.

    I am afraid we have never received the survey, will take a second look.

    Haven’t checked email for a couple of days so too late for the swing dancing. Hope you had fun. The only survey that hit our email address is the test version that you sent to me after our planning meeting in January and I replied to it. We have not received a current one for Glennis to complete. Tried to do the earlier one again but was refused with an “already completed” error. I’m sending you Glennis’ email address in a separate email and hopefully you can forward her a copy of the survey. We keep the same address on our club directory to avoid receiving 2 postings of all club messages.
