Ride Reminder – Friday, April 28

Spring 2016

Friday’s ride will start at 5:30 from the Cobourg Community Centre and will follow a new route that Brian H. has created. The Spring Fling ride has three distance options – 32, 41 and 45 kilometres. The 45 kilometre route adds the big bad Bickle hill!

As Brian reminded folks in the comments for last Friday’s ride, when we do not have a host, we will alternate Port Hope Town Hall and Cobourg Community Centre starting points, and will assign a route from the list we created for the season. No maps will be distributed at the ride, so it will be important for you to download and print your own. Also, if you plan to ride, please let other riders know they will have companionship by commenting before 10:00 a.m. on Friday.

    The route map will be posted on the Website within the next couple of days. Please check for Spring Fling, under Cobourg, prior to coming to the ride on Friday. The route is essentially a “reverse direction” version of Wayne’s from Good Friday but with an additional 4 km Bickle Hill (going the correct way from East to west) option 🙂

    Just arrived in Norway. Quite cold and it snowed earlier today but still hoping to get out for a bike ride tomorrow. Enjoy Bickle hill.

      Have fun in Norway, Marshall. I am envious!
      Apart from today (Tuesday) it is very spring-like here in Port Hope. We were forced to cancel our ride today as the “chance of showers” forecast should have read “rain all day”!
      BTW – Bickle Hill is an “optional extra” for those folks who feel that 41 km is too short a ride 🙂

    I will be coming and let us bring along your emergency repair kit. You never know when you need it.


  4. twocamels says:

    Map is now on the Local Routes – last route under Cobourg – you can also link to it from the post. Ruth & Pete plan to be at the ride!


  5. Jennifer & Andy says:

    We hope to be there too.


  6. Sue says:

    I won’t be able to go on Friday, but will see you on Tuesday.


  7. bhedney says:

    I plan to ride and to participate in the tailgate party afterwards 🙂


  8. Barb Spencer says:

    John and I plan to attend. For sure John will join the tailgate party and we may find somewhere to go and eat afterwards.
