Hurray to Jeremy Laurenkowski from the City of Moorpark Parks and Rec Dept for heading the way for the installation of a new "Bike Work Station." The plans are to have it installed soon at Tierra Rejada Park near the playground area off the west parking lot. Can't wait, thank you City of Moorpark for heading towards a more bike friendly town.
Well it seems that Moorpark was recently in the news. An article was written in the Moorpark Acorn Newspaper concerning the Ventura County's effort to start up "bike friendly businesses." What a great idea to have local businesses actually want cyclists to arrive at their location whether it be for food, services or business. Read the article by clicking on "Moorpark Acorn Article" to get the full story.
Guess who this is....
Well, here is a vintage photo from the past. Can you guess who is riding this bike in the black and white photo. Nice helmet too, right? He is continuing his life long fitness trend, biking!
We were very lucky to have two visitors from Victoria, BC ride with our group during the "Malibu 44 Mile Ride" on Sunday. Alana and Craig were visiting the Mandalay Bay area of Oxnard and during their week long stay decided to pick our route to get a taste of our beautiful Ventura County. The weather was wonderful and they enjoyed the route so much.
Well, guess what? Our own Starbucks in the Wood Ranch Plaza is moving. Yes moving. But, moving just 100 yards away into a brand new building with a drive thru window. Hopefully we will have more outdoor space with umbrellas to shade us. The grand opening is predicted to be late September. So get ready.
One of our favorite places to refuel either at the end or during a ride is at Carrara's Bakery here in Moorpark. Lucky for us they plan on staying in our fine city while moving just a short distance east on Los Angeles Avenue. The bakery is near our own Wingspan Cyclery and Jersey Mikes behind the Rabobank at 144 W. Los Angeles Avenue. The move is expected to take about 2 months to complete, so stay toned for more updates.
So it is too hot for you to ride your bike? Well think again. Here are a few ways to feel cooler on a bike and still get those miles in this summer. Try a DeBrim hat, sleeveless jersey, biking sandals and even a biking hat or visor. But, it is always recommended to hydrate and rest when necessary. Hope to see you on a ride soon.
