Delta – Victoria – Delta Ride – Saturday, August 12

We have shortened this ride to one day.   Catch the early ferry, ride into and around Victoria area, lunch at a place to be determined, ride back to ferry via Mattick’s Farms for some goodies, home on the ferry and to sleep in your own bed.  More details to come, but if you are interested, please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots.

?subject=DVD%20Ride" style="cursor: pointer;">JohannaPLEASE SEND JOHANNA CONFIRMATION BY AUGUST 7TH.   If there is lots of interest, we can create two routes so those that wish to ride fast and hard can, and we can all meet for lunch, and then meet again back at the ferry.
 
Team Coastal Fondo – August 26th

Please take a moment to fill out this survey - asking if you will be attending.

WE NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND THE RIDE AND/OR BBQ. 

Please take the time to complete this short/quick survey.  RSVP deadline is Friday, August 11th.

We will depart from and then have our annual BBQ at the Old Orchard Picnic Shelter in Campbell Valley Park (entrance on 8th Avenue).  Team Coastal is paying for a catered BBQ lunch, and details around the routes will be coming.  There will be three distances so riders of all abilities are welcome!   Food will begin to be served around 1:00.  When we issue the formal invite, we will require an RSVP via STRAVA.  It is VERY important that when you sign up for the ride, you stay committed or let us know if you can’t make it.  This is not an inexpensive endeavor for the Club, so your commitment is very much appreciated. We want to ensure enough food for everyone. If you have a partner who is not riding but wishes to attend the BBQ, we welcome them.  Just make sure we know they are coming so we may plan accordingly.
