Away Ride-Saturday, September 13 Ventura to Ojai and Santa Paula loop. This is a great ride with some wonderful views. So mark this date in your calendar. Routes for all levels. Details to come.
Saddle Saturdays! “This seat is killing me!”. We’ve all said this at one time or another. Most of us have saddles we have purchased that worked for a while, and don’t now. Or, we’ve upgraded and now have extras just lying around. Yes, we can try a few from the local shop, but why not keep things “in the family”. So, we are going to try a bike seat co-op. Bring those bad boys to the ride start with your name and contact info on the underside of the saddle, I’ll hang onto them, keep track of who has what. Someone else can borrow and try it out. When someone decides it’s a keeper, the two parties can work out the deal.
-THE RIDES- While in a group and riding in the bike lane solo, the cyclist must use the middle portion of the lane, not the white line separating the bike lane and traffic. This makes it safer for a cyclist to pass without endangering themselves by going into traffic or passing on the right which can endanger both riders.
Saturday: 8:00am at The Landing parking lot (Note the start time!)

** This is considered a "no drop" ride. The ride leader will keep an eye on everyone. No one is left behind.
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 & 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.
It is mandatory to have & wear a helmet. It is the rider's responsibility to ensure that the helmet is in good condition (check expiration on helmet inner tag) and that your bike is in working condition as well.
That’s all for now, folks. Have a great week!
