LIGHT 'EM UP! - LAST CALL!

Cyclists love a good deal. So here's one for you. 

Thanks to Prez Jim's long list of contacts, you, as a member of BCCC, can get Lezyne lights at a discounted price. Like half.

Lezyne is a San Luis Obispo company that manufactures high quality cycling products, such as lights, mini-tools, pumps and so on.

Click here to access their website.

If so interested, email OM Travis at  omtravis46@hotmail.com , or with any questions, etc. that you may have. Do it by this Friday!

Now you have no excuse to light up.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21ST

Access route sheets and the club calendar by going here.

 L1 - LET'S GO TO LATIGO

Some more climbing, in preparation for our November 11th ride up to Cloudburst.  84 miles, 4300 feet led by Ironman O'Crowley. We'll be riding on PCH - so charge up those lights.

L2 - TRANCAS

An out-n-back, sort of, ride up to Trancas Canyon. Stop at the market for refreshments, and then return home.  Feel like trying Latigo, but not so sure? Roll out with the L1 crowd.....you have all the way to Latigo Canyon to decide. Then either turn right up the canyon, or continue to Trancas and wait for the L2 Crew to roll in.  75 miles, 2400 feet, led by Diana Thacker.  Rear  blinky lights highly recommended. 

L3- AMALFI/TEMESCAL

Stay close to home, and still get in a decent ride. Up and down Amalfi, then up Temescal. Return through Pacific Palisades and the scenic overlook. 50 miles 1200 ft led by Danny Hylands.

L4 - JACKSON CAFE

Zip up the bike path to Culver City and the Jackson Cafe. Rest up, return home.

32 miles, flat, led by Fred Fasen.


In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, it is club policy to cancel a club ride.  Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
