WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather is expected to be a little wet on Saturday, but perfect and sunny on Sunday. In wet conditions, take extra caution when braking and cornering. Note our inclement weather policy below, as well. On Saturday, we have four rides. The Red Ride is heading for the beach over Potrero and back up Yerba Buena (take extra care on a wet Potrero Wall). The Orange ride is doing a nice Grimes Canyon loop through Moorpark. The Gold ride is going over Potrero to Sycamore Canyon and looping back through Newbury Park. We will also have a Newcomers Purple ride, with a nice route through Oak Park and Chesboro. On Sunday, we've got just two rides because of the holiday. The Red and G.O. Rides will be going over Potrero to Camarillo and back up Santa Rosa Valley. And the Social ride is riding up Carlisle Canyon and the stables in HIdden Valley. We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday, including a Tuesday night mountain bike ride and cruise rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This week has been extremely windy so there is extra debris everywhere. As you are riding with your groups, please be alert for debris in the lanes and always warn riders behind you of everything approaching! You are their eyes when you are on the front. Our Purple and Newcomer courses are getting a fantastic response. Please help spread the word and bring friends! We now have regular purple rides every Saturday. Come join us for the classes on the first weekend of the month, with lots of great info from bike checks, to riding strategies, to group dynamics. Let me know if I can help with anything bike or ride-related. I always have extra gear, supplies and my toolbox, pump, etc. And let's ride!

SAFETY REMINDERS If there is a marked bike lane, cyclists may ride shoulder to shoulder. Single file otherwise. There is no three or four abreast at any time while moving.If you are wearing a CVC kit, you represent the club, so please be sure to follow the rules of the road. When riding with CVC, you agree to: * Wear a helmet and ensure my bike is in good working order. * Ride to the right, pass on the left. * Ride in the bike lane (where available) and signal when moving into another lane. * Ride no more than two abreast in the bike lane, single file on narrow roads, and avoid "Swarming" (bunching up and multiplying the chance of accidents) * Call out and point if I see a traffic hazard * Respect ALL traffic laws and the rights of all autos, bicycles, and pedestrians* Ride predictably and remind other to be safe * Be a bicycling ambassador
PARKING Please remember when parking at The Landing for any weekend morning rides to park and congregate towards the far end of the lot away from the street and use the middle row. Do not park next to the homes.
ADDITIONAL NOTES The Purple ride is considered a no drop. Having said that, please note that if you are falling behind or slower than the average pace, you may be dropped. All rides not asterisked are considered a "drop ride" so please understand the route before you start (and how to get back). If you get to a regrouping spot and no one is there, consider yourself dropped. As always, we will try to stick together and have a fun, safe ride. We will regroup regularly to allow everyone a chance to ride together.
If for any reason you leave a group ride, please pass along the information to the ride leader.
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.
