Any rides planned for the 4th? The CSUN ride is listed at Classiest Calabasas, but hopefully that will get vetoed in favor of something else.

Vance, Don't you have the regular Wed ride?
I have a bbq party to go to at 2:00pm, but I will go to csun and hopefully do the level 2 (46miles) this will give me about 60 miles with the ride from/to encino (home). If anyone cares, I mapped the 180B ride (the level 2 ride)

Vance I was looking for something else either. I was talking to other riders and they said there will also be a harder ride on that day. A few are starting from a remote location near Rockstore Rd? But those were the slower guys so I'm not sure.

Whats the deal? I'm looking for a good ride on Wed, if anything I'll ride from the college but I suspect a remote start?

Yea, Shai... I'm guessing there will be the regular Wed ride. But there's a lot of competition, so not sure what the turnout will be there (that's why I was asking). And sure enough, VB posted his climbing ride as option #2. And I got another mass e-mail from a club member about option #3 (7:30am from Corner Bakery at the Commons in Calabasas for about 50 miles). And of course, CSUN for option #4.

By the way Ovo and Shai... I'm going to go do a couple Reseda repeats in the morning if your interested in a quick workout before work. I'm leaving my house at 8, over at the bottom of Reseda around 8:30.

I refuse to drive anywhere on the 4th. But I'm definitely in for anything from the Commons or CSUN.
How about a nice PCH and canyons loop from the Corner Bakery?

Some of us work

Maybe at 6:00 am?

And not tomorrow, I need a rest day, rode 6 days straight almost now. I'm taking tomorrow off and Tuesday at 5:30pm I want to go and try that "fast" ride that starts at CSUN.

What are people planning on mostly for Wed? The faster guys/longer riding guys. CSUN?

Steve, regardless of the temperature, I definitely prefer the canyons over PCH-only. I'm up for the Commons at 7:30 optoin... maybe we can coerce a sub-group into doing the climbing option?

Well, maybe out Mulholland to PCH, stop at Neptunes Net then back PCH to Latigo or something?
Or the reverse.....

I started at the next stop sign (where the hill really starts). Maybe we can have a BF event there someday. Or better yet, a BF mountain bike ride up on those trails.

I'm not a MTB'er and I gave up after 1 ride lol. Ya I'm interested!! Like a mini Fargo challenge but it will be based on number of ascends.

I like the kinda uphill/flatish portion to get ready and get the heart rate going before the hill so I start the clock at the very first stop sign you come across.

I'll probably come to the Commons, but I don't know where we will go. Don't forget those canyons are almost as hot as the valley sometimes. Latigo can be a killer on a hot day.
