WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather looks great this weekend - very light winds and clouds breaking to sunshine both mornings!
On Saturday, we have four rides going out. The Red Ride will be doing a Simi Loop heading north over Westlake and through Simi and up the dreaded Black Canyon, down Woolsey and back around Valley Circle and Calabasas. The Orange Ride will be doing a Simi loop as well, but the opposite direction through Calabasas first, then up and over Woolsey Canyon into Simi. The Gold ride will be heading north through Thousand Oaks and down the Norwegian Grade into Moorpark, then around the college and back home over Madera and Pederson. And the Purple Ride has their choice of doing Oak Park or Hidden Valley.
On Sunday, we've got three rides. The G.O. Ride will be rolling out to the north side of Moorpark and up Grimes Canyon, then over Championship Drive (minor dreaded steep grade). The Social Ride is cruising down Agoura road to Cornell and up to Lake Malibu, then a bit of Mulholland up toward the Rock Store. And the Mountain Bike Ride is meeting up on Potrero and doing some of the trails around Point Mugu Park.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings. And the Wednesday afternoon ride with Sheri.
Always be more aware when riding with your group. You are the eyes of everyone behind you and the voice to point out obstacles, vehicles and other hazards. 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.
