Well, it is time to change out some of our rides for different or newer ones. So we have rotated out the "Old Agoura 40 Miler" and the "Los Robles 32 Miler" for some other routes. The 1st Saturday will now have the "Santa Rosa 34 Miler", while on the 4th Saturday we will have the new "Stonehaus 34 Miler", and the 5th Saturday the former "Westlake 40 Miler." Check the ride details list on the right for more details. See you on a ride soon.
The City of Moorpark was a lucky recipient of a "Bike Work Station" this month at the Fire Station on High Street. The Ventura County Fire Department has installed many work stations throughout the county. Thanks to all of their hard work and good thinking. Word has it that more bike work stations may be installed at Tierra Rejada Park and Arroyo Vista Park by the Moorpark Parks and Rec Department. More information will be posted as we find out.
Read this great news article about our own Edwin Velarde on this EPiC Bike Adventure from Chicago to Atlanta in late May. He is biking 1,300K to make people in the south aware of the dangers of diabetes. Read more about Edwin's bike adventure on "Uplifted." and on "Facebook."
Yes, finally! Santa Rosa Road has been newly paved from Yucca Road on the east end to the Camarillo City limits on the west end. The pavement project is complete except for the last minute stripping of lane lines and bike lanes. This is a welcomed sight as in July our "Santa Rosa 34 Miler" will be rotated into the ride schedule on the first Saturday of the month. Hurray for Ventura County Public Works again.
