Ventura-Balcom Cyn-SP-Ventura Loop, Sun, Jan 18
Ventura Mission - > Somis -> Balcom Cyn (easy side up, hairy side down) -> SP -> Ventura Mission.
Given the weather we've been havin and that it certainly won;t last for the short run, this is a great time to do a comfortable loop over Balcom.
Sunday - Jan 18 - 9:15 gather, 9:30 am starttime at the parking lot across from the Ventura Mission on Main Street (near the 33/101 intersect) - just short of 50 miles RT - about 3.5 hours at an easy 'small ring' pace.
I plan on staying in the small ring, just a nice steady tempo, NOT A HAMMERFEST! I'm required to keep my heartrate below zone 5... for the time being...
A 'No Drop' social ride, with some hopes for poseur points at some coffeehouse.... ;-)
A 9:30 start should assure not needing any extra kit, so we can ride with 'summer' togs.
Route Map at mapmyride.com
only 1300 ft of total elevation gain for the whole ride - really mostly flat citrus orchard ride with an easy, steady climb up to Balcom and down again to orchards
If you've a mind to, join me.
email me direct -cyclezen(AT)hotmail-com and I'll know to look for you at start. Otherwise, just show up...
I'll be drivin the 'Surf Van' - 90's Plymouth Maroon Gran Voyageur...
