WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather continues to cooperate nicely this weekend with cool, cloudy mornings and a light breeze coming in from the ocean to help push us home.
On Saturday we've got four rides. The Red Ride is heading up Westlake to do an out-n-back on Lil Sycamore, then down to the beach on Mulholland, back up Encinal Canyon and down past the Rock Store. The Orange ride is heading out through HIdden Valley, dropping to down into Camarillo past CSU to the Sports Park, then home back through Santa Rosa Valley. The Gold ride is headed out toward Lake Sherwood and Hidden Valley, as well, before looping around to Dos Vientos Park, then coming back home through HV again. And the Purple Ride will be heading south to Chesboro Canyon before rolling up to Fountainwood and coming home over Lakeview.
On Sunday, we've got three rides. Alfonso will take the Red Ride direct to the beach and back via Westlake, Mulholland and Encinal. And I'll be leading the G.O. ride on a Simi Counter-clockwise loop through Calabasas, Chatsworth, Simi and TO. And the social ride is heading south with Kay to climb Cornell and zip up around Lake Malibu.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday evening, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.
Always be more aware and anticipate dangers when riding with your groups. You are the eyes of everyone behind you and the voice to point out obstacles, vehicles and other hazards - even when you are tucked into the peloton. 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 usually have extra gear, supplies and my toolkit, 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.
Let's ride, Bart Ziegler CVC Ride Director email@example.com
