Hi, Some people on the gold ride had asked for this contact info. The city of Thousand Oaks traffic division, has a Bicycle Advisory Team. It is called BAT. They are there for US, making Thousand Oaks a safer riding community. Greg Jensen is our new liaison and will attend meetings on behalf of the CVC. There are other organizations and private parties involved as well. If any of you ever want to attend OR have an issue or concern that you would like to bring up, please email here: KNaoum@toaks.org www.toaks.org Or contact Greg Jensen.
For example, today on the downhill from Westlake into Thousand Oaks, there is a traffic light that is "usually" always green. Today it was not and the view is obstructed from the bike lane. The car lanes have a better visual. Luckily everyone was able to stop on time, but this is an issue that certainly can pose a problem with descending speeds in a group. It is certainly worth contacting the team to have this looked into.
Let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to always speak up for safety.
