Hey CVC, The weather looks warm this weekend - with temps in the 80s and low 90s! Early should be nice but gets warmer, so ease up on the gas pedal and keep the water and electrolytes coming.
On Saturday we have three rides. The Red Ride is heading toward the Rock Store, then descending Latigo before heading north on PCH and back home up Decker. The Orange ride is going out Hidden Valley, dropping to CSU, then south on PCH and return back up Decker, as well. And the Gold ride is going south over Mulholland to King Gilette and 7-Minute hill before returning through Calabasas and over Agoura.
On Sunday we've also got three ride options. The Red Ride will be heading for Moorpark over Westlake Boulevard, descend Norweigen Grade and ride up Grimes Canyon. The G.O. Ride is going south over Mulholland and will tackle the Piuma climb before descending Stunt, then back home direct over Muholland. And the social ride is winding up through Thousand Oaks to Wildwood Park, then continuing the loop over Pederson and back home over Westlake, or back down Erbes.
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.
