Hey CVC, We have a great weekend forecast for riding, with temps in the 80's. It will get hot during the day so remember the sunscreen and be sure to hydrate, Hydrate, HYDRATE. Take every opportunity to refill your water bottles and drink deeply each time you take a sip.
On Saturday we have three rides. The Red Ride is heading for Mulholland, going up Piuma, down Las Flores to the beach, then turning at PCH and coming back up, down Stunt and home. The Orange Ride is heading out Hidden Valley toward Dos Vientos, then looping back up through Wildwood and onto Oak Park and Chesboro. And the Gold ride will head out toward Lake Sherwood, go over Treasure HIll and up to Borchard Park at Dos Vientos before returning back over Lynn and Green Meadow.
On Sunday the Red Ride is going out through Hidden Valley and dropping down to CSU before taking the turn back inland and returning up Santa Rosa Valley. The G.O. Ride is going up over Westlake and Pederson, then out to Moorpark to climb Grimes Canyon and Championship Drive around the golf course. The social ride is doing lake lap and a quick up and back on Carlisle Canyon. Happy Father's Day!
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings and evenings, including the our famous Rock Store Race Ride (with moderat-paced options), our wildly fun Thursday night Pub Ride and destination rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
When riding with your groups, please be very verbal and watch for debris in the bike lanes. Always warn riders behind you of everything approaching! You are their eyes when you are on the front.
Our Purple and Newcomer rides are getting a good turn-out. Please help spread the word and bring friends! Our next Purple ride is scheduled for Saturday, July 1st. We can also put together a Purple ride anytime. Contact me or Sheri. Come join us and bring family and friends.
Let me know if I can help with anything bike or ride-related. I always have extra gear, nutrition, supplies and my toolbox, pump, etc. And let's ride!

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.
