WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT Hey CVC, The weather looks perfect for riding this weekend, with scattered clouds to keep it cool and no chance of rain!
On Saturday, we have four rides going out. The Red Ride will be heading out HIdden Valley to Camarillo, rolling over Balcom Canyon and back home over Grimes. The Orange will doing a nice loop up over Westlake and Kanan before running up Mulholland and into Calabasas for 7-Minute Hill. The Gold ride will be heading for 7-Minute HIll as well but more directly up Cornell and onto King Gillett and Calabasas. And the Purple Ride is doing our most popular ride through HIdden Valley to the stables and back.
On Sunday, we've got three rides. The G.O. Ride will head out through HIdden Valley, then onto Dos Vientos and back over Green Meadow, then up Westlake and Kanan. The Social ride is doing a nice cruise up through Oak Park, with a couple diversions through Agoura Hills. And the Mountain Bike/Gravel ride will start in Newbury Park and hit some of the trails in Sycamore Canyon.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday mornings, Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings.
Always be more aware when riding with a 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!

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.
