On the most beautiful fall day in California history our group headed to the hills of Westlake. We ventured from Moorpark into Thousand Oaks, North Ranch, Oak Park, Agoura, Westlake Village and on our way to the famous Stonehaus Winery of goodies. Afterwards we took a slight detour to the "Pedego 101 Electric Bike Shop" in Westlake Village. We were greeted by Linda, the owner, and showed us their newest and best ebikes they have to offer. We also noticed so very cool Blutooth communication helmets and the like. Fun was had by all as we hit the hills again into Moorpark with a cool fall breeze to make us happy. Join us any Saturday for a great ride into Eastern Ventura County.
Here is a photo for our group during the "Santa Rosa 34 Miler" which departed from Tierra Rejada Park in Moorpark for the citrus groves of Somis and Moorpark. We were lucky to wear the new team jerseys that Edwin ordered. Nice aren't they? If you missed Edwin's first order you can email him your size. Please refer to the Primal Wear size charts for a correct fit. The ones shown are a "race cut" (tighter than normal). Primal does offer club cuts (looser) and women's sizes. Please be very specific and know that there are no returns if the jersey does not fit they way you want, sizing is in your hands.
Thanks to our own Edwin Velarde the "Moorpark Bike Rides" now has a team jersey. For those that ordered and paid Edwin, you can pick your jersey up at his office in Oak Park right next to the Apollo's Coffee Shop. Give him a phone call or text first before arriving.
The Moorpark Bike Rides now has a club listing in the STRAVA program. You can sign up for FREE on this link: Strava Moorpark Bike Rides. You can also get more from the program by putting the Strava app on your phone to monitor you during your next bike adventure. See how you compare with other club members or the general public on certain "segments" of your route. You can also obtain or make your own route maps. This is a cool program, give it a try.
During the hotter summer months a few of our rides get rotated out of the schedule for cooler ones. So beginning in July two rides have been modified. The 4th Saturday of the month is our new "Sunset Hills 30 Miler" which leaves Moorpark for the Coffee Bean in Thousand Oaks. This is an older route that has been modified. While on our 4th Sunday of the month is the "Somis Groves 35 Miler." Basically this same as the former route, but with extensions to lengthen the ride due to our newer Starbucks refueling stop. See you then with a friend.
