200K in a Day Courtice to Bath

Do you have the mojo to cycle 200 kilometres? That’s right, 200 km from Courtice to Bath, Ontario, all one way going east with a nice breeze behind our backs. This ride takes us through some of the nicest scenery in the province. Ride through Port Hope and Cobourg and stop for lunch in Brighton, cycle  through Prince Edward County and take the free Glenora ferry across the water to the Loyalist Parkway, this ride has it all. We will finish at The Loyalist Golf & Country Club in Bath, and after a well deserved shower and lunch, we will be whisked back to Courtice in a school bus. Please bring an old blanket to help pack your bike in the bus. Tom & Cliff will drive the SAG vehicle and provide water, eload, gummies, bananas & watermelon. Bring a change of clothes and shoes for the bus ride back, as well as your own food for the ride. There is a limit of 20 riders for this ride and you must be a registered member in good standing. Please be serious when you sign up because space is limited. So get training today and join us for a great time. Special thanks to Cliff Bruton & Tom Moffatt for making this ride a reality this year.

Roman Manko Memorial Ride and Picnic 2018

Roman Manko

Welcome to the 4th annual DCC – Roman Manko Memorial Ride and Picnic.

Roman was DCC’s president in 2014-2015 and a popular, dedicated member of our club who was taken from us suddenly due to a cycling accident.

Once again, a great thank you to Glyn and Alice Walters for allowing us the use of their property for this event.

Sign up for the ride is mandatory. Please do so by May 31st.

We are asking those attending to contribute to our meal with salad, dessert or even your favorite dish! Bring this food in a cooler as refrigerated storage is not available. The club will supply deli meats, buns, condiments, coffee, cream and sugar.

Click here to sign up and indicate what you can contribute to the picnic. A separate window will open to a spreadsheet.

On the day of the event, please drive up to the barn to drop off your cooler, chairs and bikes then go back down the driveway to park on either side of the driveway at the bottom of the hill.  Prior to departure there will be a few words of thanks at 10:00 am. Please arrive on time so this quiet moment is not disturbed.

In an effort to reduce garbage and do our part to protect our environment, the committee asks that club members bring the following items: plates, cutlery, napkins, serving utensils for your dish and whatever you would like to drink for the meal (alcohol is permitted if you wish); also lawn chairs. Following the meal, recycling and garbage bins will be available for cleanup.

Club members are asked to assist with clean up. Please note the event will end between 3:30 and 4:00 pm.

In the event of rainy weather, should the ride portion of the event be cancelled, a notice will be posted on the club website by 8:00 am on the day of the event. We expect the picnic portion will go forward and will post details of the change at the time the decision is made.

We look forward to a great turnout for this special event!
