WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather looks much better this weekend - very light (not hurricane) winds and sunny both mornings!
On Saturday, we have four rides going out. The Red Ride will be heading up to the Rock Store, dropping to the Coast, up Deer Creek, down Yerba and back up Encinal. The Orange Ride will be heading for King Gilette, then onto climb Piuma before descending Fernwood, back up Old Topanga and home through Calabasas. The Gold ride will be doing a lake lap before heading up Cornell to King Gilette, then up 7-Minute HIll and through Calabasas. And the Purple Ride is going to ride up Reyes Adobe around Oak Park and Fountainwood Park.
On Sunday, we've got two rides. The G.O. Ride will be doing our famous Rock Store and Encinal Canyon loop, with an option to add the Top-O-The World short ride up Little Sycamore. The Social Ride is cruising through up through Carlisle Canyon, then back around Lake Sherwood to the Fire Station.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings. And the Wednesday afternoon ride has resumed as well.
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.
