Hey Freewheelers – we had a last minute change to our schedule so we’re making Friday’s ride a downtown Cobourg start location so that we can all enjoy Ribfest as a reward! No cookin’ required, just feastin’. Or festin’.
Check back on this post later today to see which route we have decided will work best. Considering Town & Country, the Turkey Ride or Hamilton Heights. If you have thoughts, please comment. We’ll follow the suggestion of Klaus, seconded by Pete to do Brian N.’s Favorite route. Those participating can agree on how far they want to go and how many hills they want to climb in advance of the rib feast.
We suggest you find parking wherever you can near Ribfest. We will meet on our bikes at a central location by 5:30 – i.e., the parking lot behind the Dutch Oven where we typically meet. If you can park there, great, alternatively, Barb has investigated some alternatives. Her discoveries about the event and the parking options are below.
Here’s the need to know site for Ribfest:
- It is free to get in
- No bikes, water bottles, bags, and the like.
- Vendors post their prices
Here’s a map of free parking (well 2 hours but I’m sure the meter gestapo leave work at 4:30 Friday night) in downtown Cobourg. The Trinity lot is usually good, particularly on the elbow down to Swayne Street. It isn’t far to walk from there. I will also pop in to at 66 King tomorrow and ask Edward who owns it if we can park in his side lot right across from Vic Park. He closes at 5:00. We may all have to promise to stop in sometime for a coffee and sweet, but that is no problem as it is a wonderful place.
Hope to see you there! Nom, Nom.
