* We had 6 hardy riders last week. Fun group! Picnic depends on weather
and whether anyone brings food, etc. Dress appropriately. Rain cancels
(though "they" say it won't rain...).*
*Thursday, April 12th, 5:30 p.m.* (Around-the-lakers can start at any time
- picnic @ ~7:00) Westlake Village Start (directions below)
Route: *Lake Malibou* - Triunfo to Westlake, right to Agoura Rd, right to
Cornell, right, and up Cornell to Mulholland; around Lake Malibou and back
the same way. Other alternatives back are up Rock Store or Troutdale and
For CVC'rs, longer ride is between a "gold" and "orange" level. No drops. I
wait for the slowest rider.
*RIDE START:* Triunfo Road just west of the Dam (tennis) Club and little
yacht club building in Westlake Village. (From the 101 Fwy, take Lindero
Cyn. south until it ends at Triunfo. Go right on Triunfo a couple hundred
yards…where there's grass, sidewalk, the lake…and park along the curb.
Picnic is here after the ride.)
*TIME:* Those wishing to get in ~20 miles, *5:30, ready to ride.* Those
just going around the lake can show up at any time.
*PICNIC:* After riding - picnic starts around 7:00 p.m.
*WHAT TO BRING: HELMET AND BIKE!* For picnic, bring something to share
(cheese, crackers, fruit, olives, pretzels, cookies, whatever…), a beverage
(and something to drink it in if you don't want to drink out of the
bottle), something to SIT on and a warm jacket. Also bring any friends,
neighbors, relatives, S.O.'s and anyone else who might like to join us
(preferably with bikes). Don't forget spare tubes, water bottles, etc.
*ROUTES:* Longer ride: Routes will include Hidden Valley, Lake Malibou,
North Ranch, and wherever. Around the lake: cruise around the lake in wide
bike lanes…no left turns…~5 miles each loop…all flat, no discernible hills.
If you wish to be removed from this e-mail list (unless you're getting the
notice from CVC), please let me know. Also, feel free to pass the
information on to friends, family and S.O's. Everyone is welcome.
Inclement weather policy: In the interest of safety, whenever it is either
actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, it is our club policy to
cancel a club ride. Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these
conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
