WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather should be sunny this weekend, after a little rain Thursday and Friday. Chilly though, so layer up.
On Saturday, we have four rides. The Red Ride is heading up to the Rock Store, then over Lil Sycamore to the beach and back up Decker. The Orange ride is doing a nice loop up over Rock Store and Lil Sycamore, with a turn-around and return from the top back down Westlake. The Gold ride is headed for Chesboro then looping back over Kanan, through TO and Ventu Park. We will also have a Newcomers Purple ride, including an Oak Park loop up Reyes Adobe and down through Chesboro.
On Sunday, we've got three rides going out. The Red Group will be heading for the 3-Canyons ride in Simi with Tapo, Lost and Long Canyons. The G.O. Ride will be doing Potrero and the Camarillo Bike Path, returning up Santa Rosa. And the Social ride is doing a nice cruise to Calabasas for coffee.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday, including a Tuesday night mountain bike ride and cruise rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
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, and another Newcomer's class and ride coming up this Saturday! Come join us for the class, 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.
