CVC Sunday Social / Recovery Ride -- Sunday, September-2nd - 9:00am
Meeting at Citibank Parking Lot - Westlake Village -- Westlake Blvd. & Agoura Road (North East Corner)
Route: Reyes Adobe / Lindero MUP
Come out and join us for a local social paced ride (14 Mph Avg. Speed). Approximately 25-30 miles and then stay a while to socialize afterwards by having an after-ride beverage and snack.
The plan for this Sunday is to head North on Reyes Adobe, cut through the school which puts us on Lindero Cyn., where we will find our way to the Multi Use Path that meanders through Oak Canyon Park.
From there we can take the not too traveled residential side streets to work our way South which puts us at Chumash Park all without having to ride on Kanan.
Once there we can choose the return route and/or extension (I.e. Agoura with a Carlisle Canyon loop, Thousand Oaks Blvd to Forrest Cove Park pass though or a Malibou Lake loop).
This route uses lightly traveled roads that avoid the traffic of the major streets.
After ride socializing - Natural Cafe' Restaurant - Patio and/or front grassy courtyard area. Many options at this location for beverage and food establishments.
See you there!!
Note: 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.
Even though we are attempting to offer our coolest ride routes during high heat days, some considerations and situations that you should be aware of
for riding in high heat in our area:
1) Stay hydrated and be aware to keep your electrolites balanced
2) Road surface conditions: asphalt tar & repair drips become semi liquid and especially slippery
example: descending Decker/Westlake has multiple places where asphalt cracks have been sealed with tar
Try to ride over them minimizing tire contact
3) Goat head thorns have returned and caused six flats on this past week's Orange ride
Carry and extra tube or two - and even a patch kit for flat repairs
4) Be aware of other riders signs of heat exhaustion and offer assistance as applicable
Please remember to park in the area along Westlake Blvd. (between the street and the first driveway aisle) and not in the area in front of the shops or market. If we don't respect the requests of the lease tenants we could be asked to park elsewhere.
