High Desert Cyclists Annual AV to Ventura Ride
Saturday July 24th
Ride will leave the Antelope Valley from Marie Kerr Park at 7:00am and head to San Francisquito Canyon to Walmart in Santa Clarita. Riders not inclined to make the trek from Palmdale to Santa Clarita are welcome to join the pack at Walmart in Santa Clarita. This clips about 30 miles from the ride distance of about 80 total miles. There will be bbq, food, and drinks at the end of the ride at San Buena Ventura State Beach in Ventura. Non-members of the High Desert Cyclists are welcome to join us. If you are a non-member and wish to participate a small donation is requested but not required at the completion of the ride to offset costs.
A crew of riders are are planning on doing 100 miles by adding Munz- Bouquet-Spunky for a little longer route and catching the 80 mile group somewhere on the 126. Contact Rich at the Block Shop for the 100 mile ride details. Email email@example.com for the 80 mile ride. PLEASE RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can coordinate the proper amount of food and libations. Also, please understand that there is very limited to zero space for returning in automobiles. So it would be wise to arrange a shuttle to get you home unless you want to ride back to the AV. This is vital! Please make arrangements to get yourself home!
