* 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 up Kanan.
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.
