WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather should be perfect for riding this weekend, with temps in the 70s. We will have a little wind coming from the northwest on Saturday, but it will give us a nice tailwind for the return on our ride up the coast.
On Saturday, we have three routes going up the coast from Leo Carrillo on PCH. The Red Ride will be riding through Channel Islands, Ventura Harbor and Carpinteria. The Orange will also head up the coast through Channel Islands and grab lunch in the Ventura Harbor. And the Gold ride will go north as well and head back from Channel Islands after a break there at Starbucks.
On Sunday, we've got three rides. The G.O. Ride will roll up Westlake and over Norwegian Grade to Moorpark, heading for Grimes Canyon and Championship Drive. The Social ride is cruising up Carlisle Canyon and around Lake Sherwood. And the mountain bike ride is meeting up at the trailhead at Wendy and Potrero and riding some of the favorite trails around Point Mugu Park.
We've also got midweek rides with destination rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Keep in mind while riding with a group that you must warn riders behind you of dangers coming at them! You are their eyes when you are on the front - as well as in the pack. Keep your spacing generous and use your efforts on the climbs.
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.
