Cycle Transitions Closed Tonight

Due to inclement weather, we decided to cancel tonight’s open hours.  We will re-open on Saturday morning.

Change of Time for BAC Presentation to Cobourg Council

Please note that Cobourg Council has changed its meeting times from 4pm to 6pm.  As such, the presentation being made by Sustainable Cobourg’s Bicycle Action Committee will take place at the meeting on February 19 which begins at 6pm.

Please come out and support the efforts being made to improve and add to the cycling infrastructure in Cobourg.

Bicycle Action Committee to Address Cobourg Council.

Sustainable Cobourg’s Bicycle Action Committee (BAC) will be making a presentation to Cobourg Council’s Committee of the Whole on Tuesday, February 19 (the meeting begins at 4pm). The BAC will be making its pitch for cycling infrastructure projects for the coming year (separated path along Elgin from Strathy to St. Peter’s Cemetery) and the 3 remaining years of this Council (completion of the Kerr St corridor trail – a “spine” to connect a number of paths/routes).

We extend an invitation to all Cycle Transitions members and supporters to attend this meeting to show Council your support for these projects. The BAC has, over the last eleven years, made numerous presentations to Council encouraging them to improve Cobourg’s cycling infrastructure. This has led to considerable work being done already, but there’s still more to be done. Let’s encourage Council to include these in its new mandate.

We wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season!

Cycle Transitions extends a holiday greeting to all our members, supporters and friends.  May this be a safe and enjoyable time for you!

Our shop will be closed from December 20 to January 4, re-opening again Saturday, January 5.  We’re looking forward to seeing you again in the new year!

Annual General Meeting Scheduled for October 12

The Annual General Meeting for Cycle Transitions’ parent incorporation – Go Green Together  (GGT) – has been scheduled for Friday, October 12, 7pm at the Cat and Fiddle Pub on Covert St in Cobourg. In addition to addressing this past year’s business – President’s Report, Financial Report, Can-Bike Report and electing new directors – we’ll have the opportunity to socialize together.

If you are interested in becoming a director on the Board of Directors and are a member in good standing of Cycle Transitions, please send a note to Bruce Bellaire (brucebellaire@gmail.com) or Rick Nonnekes (rnonnekes@gmail.com).  The GGT Board of Directors’ main purpose is to oversee the operations of Cycle Transitions (CT); CT has flourished in its new location, more than doubling membership and being busy than ever.  Consider joining the Board to assist in this exciting endeavour!

PS – we will have some light food and refreshments but you will also be able to order drinks.  Be aware that the Cat and Fiddle is “cash only”.

Off Season Hours to resume in September

As of September 1, Cycle Transitions will revert to “off-season” hours of operation.  This means we will be open one evening (Wednesday) and one morning (Saturday) each week.  We will continue to be closed for all holiday weekends.

Off-Season Hours of Operation:

Wednesdays – 6:30pm to 9pm

Saturdays – 9am to noon

Cycle Transitions closed for Long Weekend

This is a reminder that Cycle Transitions is closed for all long weekends and therefore will not be open this Saturday, August 4 or Monday, August 6.  We will re-open on Wednesday, August 8.

Have a great weekend!

Revised shop hours for August

We’re reverting to our usual summer hours for the month of August.  Cycle Transitions will be open::

Saturday mornings – 9:30 am to 12 noon.

Skylar’s last day this Saturday

Our summer employee, Skylar Dixon, will work his last day for us this summer on Saturday (July 28). He has done a fabulous job and we’ll celebrate with a little “party of sorts” at 10:30 am on Saturday.  Many of you have had the chance to see Skylar in action and will no doubt agree that he has been a good fit.  You’re invited to drop in, thank him and say good-bye. (He’s not going far – back to CCI for his last year of high school in September.)

New Summer Hours for Cycle Transitions

Cycle Transitions has  received a grant from the federal government for a summer employee again this year and we have hired Skylar Dixon for the position. With this in place, our summer hours will be:

Monday and Wednesday – 3:30 to 9 pm

Tuesday and Thursday – 3:30 to 8:30 pm

Saturday – 9 am to 2 pm.

Skylar is a student of Cobourg Collegiate Institute completing his Grade 11 year.  We’re very happy to once again provide a training ground for a local student.  Skylar is eager to assist you so do drop in to see him. 

In addition to the extra hours we are open with Skylar in the shop, we will continue to have our regularly scheduled slate of volunteers on Monday and Wednesday evenings, Saturday mornings.
