WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather is forecast to be crummy this weekend, with an 80 percent chance of rain on Saturday, and a 40 percent chance on Sunday. So most likely, we won't have official rides because of our inclement weather policy. Whatever you do, have a great Thanksgiving and be safe. On Saturday, we have three rides going out. The Red Ride will be heading for Calabasas and Old Topanga, climbing Fernwood, down Stunt and back over Mulholland. The Orange ride is going that direction too, but more directly over Mulholland to Piuma, then coming back down Stunt and back via Mulholland, as well. The Gold ride is going up over Mulholland directly to 7-Minute Hill, with a return through Calabasas. Because of the weather, we won't plan a Purple ride at all. On Sunday, we've got three rides. The Red Group will be going over the Norweigen Grade and out through Moorpark and over Grimes Canyon. The G.O. Ride will do a loop over Kanan from Chesboro, through Newbury to Dos Vientos, and back through Hidden Valley. The Social ride is cruising out Hidden Valley with a return over Green Meadow. We've also got midweek rides Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, including Tuesday night mountain bike ride, cruise rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and a Wednesday afternoon ride with Sherie. As you are riding with your groups, please be alert for debris in the lanes and always warn riders behind you of everything approaching! You are their eyes when you are on the front. Our Purple and Newcomer courses will resume next weekend. Please help spread the word and bring friends! We now have regular purple rides every Saturday, and another Newcomer's class and ride coming up on the first weekend in December! Come join us for the class, with lots of great info from bike checks, to riding strategies, to group dynamics. 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.
