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!
