WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, Once again, we've got perfect weather for riding, with temps in the 60's and 70's. It's even supposed to warm up a bit! Dress in layers and enjoy the extra power of a lower core temperature.
On Saturday, we have four rides going out. The Red Ride will be heading up the Westlake Wall to the top of Latigo, descent to the beach, north up the coast and return up Yerba Buena. The Orange Ride will be doing a new loop through Hidden Valley, Spanish Hills (featuring the "Spanish Alps"), Somis and Moorpark. The Gold ride will be rolling south for a loop through Oak Park, then Westlake, Newbury Park and Greenmeadow for the return. And the Purple Ride is cruising north through Thousand Oaks to Wildwood Park and back.
On Sunday, we've got three rides. The G.O. Ride will be rolling through Thousand Oaks to Dos Vientos Park with a return trip through Hidden Valley and Lake Sherwood. The Social Ride is cruising south down Agoura and up Cornell to do a Lake Malibu loop and turn-around at The Old Place on Mulholland. And the mountain bike ride is meeting up at the trailhead at the north end of Chesboro and riding some of the fun trails around Chesboro and Palo Comado Canyons.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings. And the Wednesday afternoon ride is on when we've got nice weather. Look for that announcement separately.
Always be more aware when riding with a group. You are the eyes of everyone behind you and the voice to point out obstacles, vehicles and other hazards. Interact assertively with motorists, pointing and vocalizing your intentions. When riding, keep your spacing generous and focus 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.
