Hey CVC, We are headed into an End-of-August heat wave this weekend. That means extra water, electrolytes and maybe salt tabs, ice wraps or anything else it takes. Be wary of the signs of heat stroke (dizziness, chills, disorientation) and moderate your efforts.
On Saturday we have four rides. The Red Ride is heading toward the Rock Store, then descending Latigo before heading north on PCH and back home up Mulholland. The Orange Ride is going to do a Simi loop by heading to Calabasas, then across Valley Circle, over Santa Suzanna and back through Thousand Oaks. The Gold Ride is rolling out through Hidden Valley, then up to Dos Vientos Park and back on Borchard and up around Wildwood Park. The Purple Ride will be heading directly for Wildwood Park through Thousand Oaks, then complete the loop over Pederson and Erbes.
On Sunday we've also got two fun ride options. The G.O.R. ride will follow a nice loop from Chesboro, up over Kanan and Westlake, then through Wildwood Park before heading up Lynn to Dos Vientos and Hidden Valley (we will have some repeat options for the fast ponies). The social ride is winding up through Agoura via Valley Spring to Westlake, and will come home down Kanan the opposite direction, before winding over Fountainwood and Lakeview.
We've also got midweek rides on Tuesday and Thursday morning and evenings, including the our famous Rock Store Race Ride (with moderate-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. When calling out, be loud, especially around vehicles.
Our Purple and Newcomer rides are getting a good turn-out. Please help spread the word and bring friends! Our Newcomers' Class and Rides are scheduled for the first Saturday of every month, and we will be adding regular purple rides in a couple weeks. 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!

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.
