The ofCourse Productions Gravel TT Series has been ripping up Paddy Green & Powerline Rd since mid August.
Each week has seen returning riders challenging their previous times and new riders taking on the race in recent weeks.
We've seen some riders improving each week with new PB's and a current course record of 12:36.6 set by X-Speed United - Martin Rupes, and that is waiting to be topped. NCCH up and comer Charles Bergeron came within 3 seconds of the record last week.
We've got two race nights remaining;
Tues Sept 29 and our finale on Tues Oct 6.
The Finale is shaping up as a 'Battle of the Titans', with Rupes (XSU), Bergeron (NCCH), and Hamilton United Conor White competing for top honors.
End the outdoor season with setting a new mark and giving your max on a course featuring our local roads.
A bunch of NCCH volunteers, headed up by Ed Witvoet & Kevin Turbitt are in the process of building Skills ramps, skinnies, features etc for our MTB Program. The equipment and lesson plans have been designed by National MTB Elite Champion Peter Disera, and we cant wait to get them out and into action.
The NCCH program is growing, and we have big plans for the future, stay tuned for more news over the next month or so.
Big shout out to Jack Sirman & Nicole Bradbury, and of course Ed & Kevin, for putting the building skills to the test, with a great outcome.
check out our ever growing Gallery, if you ever have any photos, send them to us, and they may make the Gallery www.ncch.ca/gallery.html
Rusty Fisher is undertaking a huge adventure in order to raise money for Palliative Care. He has a goal of riding his bike all the way from Victoria BC to Peterborough ON. You may wonder why he has such big plans, why would he take on such a task? The answer is that his father was being taken care of by Palliative Care at the Peterborough Hospital for 5 months before passing away earlier this year. Their love and compassion towards his family is what inspired Rusty to raise money in order to give back and let them keep doing what they do. Rusty enjoys cycling, so choosing to cycle across the country and finish at the hospital that took such great care of his dad and family during such a difficult time felt right to him.
He understands that at some point we will all need healthcare and that the more support we give the service, the better service we will get when the time comes.
He plans on starting this adventure on June 1st, 2021. The ride will mostly be gravel roads/trails and he says he knows his dad will be with him on this journey as he plans on taking his locket of hair with him.
