What: CVC GO Thursday Ride @ 5:30 p.m.
When: Thursday June 26, 2014
Route: North Ranch #3 *
miles. PACE: This is an intermediate level ride. The
group includes mixed paces averaging 13 - 15+ mph.
NO DROPS: The leader will sweep behind the group or wait ahead at
strategic points/turns along the route, as needed, so nobody gets left behind.
Faster riders who are familiar with the course and who prefer to ride ahead are
encouraged to do so; they need not wait at regroup points.
DIRECTIONS TO RIDE START: Triunfo Canyon Rd. in Westlake Village, just west of the dam,
Westlake Tennis Club and Westlake Lake Management building. From the 101
Freeway, take Lindero Canyon south until it ends at Triunfo. Go right on
Triunfo a couple hundred yards. You will see a grassy area. Park along the
* This 23 mile route is based on a previous North Ranch route that someone recently created for CVC, but with
a couple of changes: 1) It starts from Triunfo; and 2) Rather than taking a LT
at Fountainwood or Laro, this route takes a RT from Kanan onto Fountainwood and
follows Fountainwood/Gray Rock up and around to a LT on Laro. Laro continues back down to Kanan
where we can cross the intersection @ the green light rather than attempting to
make a LT during rush hour.
