Since its inception in 1974, the Cobourg Cycling Club has had an appealing variety of cycling activities. Currently, we have members leading rides of traditional nature on paved roads but over years of evolving, we also have good, knowledgeable members leading off road and gravel rides. From touring, to challenge events, we have something for any rider.

 

Like many organizations around the world, the Cobourg Cycling Club has been re-calibrating since the global COVID 19 responses. This year we are pleased to share with you a revamped ride calendar that is filling up nicely. Hopefully, when you scroll through it something will appeal to your riding skills and ability level.

 

Speaking of which, one of the strengths of the Club over the past 50 years has been been its ability to accommodate, nurture and mentor developing riders of all ages. The CCC is a friendly, closely knit, small group of dedicated cycling enthusiasts that excels best when its members reap the benefits the Club has to offer. When you look through our website, you will find a commemorative cycling kit and t-shirt selection available.

 

Coming into the 2024 cycling season, our ride calendar and policies reflect the needs of the times. We are always looking for ride leaders to reach the broader community. In the past, we have held all kinds of annual events. Continuing in that tradition we once again will hold our Monday evening Criterium training  and our well received weekly time trial series. Other weekly rides of various skill levels and terrain are also planned.

 

To celebrate the 50th anniversary mark, the Club will re-introduce the once popular Triple 50 ride. This is a ride that has three branches to it, each with a separate, varied course route. The first leg will ride east along the Lakeshore to Colborne and return along the same route. The second phase takes a bit hillier direction as it heads over the Oak Ridges Moraine to Harwood and back. Finally, the last leg will head west through Port Hope to Wesleyville and return. All the rides will start and finish near the Cobourg Community Centre at Cycle Transitions.

 

Start your season with us on the Pancake Ride to Harwood and back on April 6th. Later in the summer, challenge the 50 km Kevin Raper Memorial Time Trial. Held on the undulating hills around Warkworth, this is a test for all. Finally, as the season winds down in late September, we will renew our Presqu'ile Park Pursuit in Brighton. This is a fun little, race-like event. It is done with slower groups having a handicapped start as we make our way around several laps of a flat 6km course. It never disappoints. Closing out the year, we have a Year End Piano Ride.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Cobourg Cycling Club,

Greg Cushing

President
