This no drop ride is intended to acquaint cyclists with the skills for riding as part of a group, meet riders of equal ability to give them riding partners for any Saturday or Sunday SFVBC group rides. The Compagni Group Ride averages 12 mph over a 25-30 mile course. It is not a beginner's ride and requires a fitness level comparable to riding at least an average of 12 mph over 15 miles and approximately 2 hours of riding. The Compagni Group Ride is lead by Bob Alonzi and Kathy Heath who emphasize safety and group riding skills to help riders prepare to join more challenging SFVBC group rides (Look for the ).

General Info
Starting Time & Location: Unless otherwise noted, all SFVBC rides start from the CSUN (California State University Northridge) campus Parking Lot “B1” at the northwest corner of Nordhoff Street and Etiwanda Avenue promptly at 8:00 AM. Park "offsite" and ride over to avoid the $4 parking fee (there is always ample parking on Nordhoff at that time).

It's a Grind
It's a Grind in Moorpark.

Monday Rides

Sometimes riding once or even twice weekly isn't enough. For those who want to put in an additional day in the saddle, the Monday ride may be just the thing for you.

There's always a rest stop featuring coffee and pastries. The ride starts at Western Bagel, 19500 Plummer St. Fast riders leave at 8:30 am, intermediate and slower groups at 8:15 am, except intermediate riders start at 7:30 am in the summer. The usual rest stop is the Corner Bakery in Simi Town Center, although the fast and slow groups sometimes ride to It’s A Grind in Moorpark.

The ability to go over Santa Susana Pass (twice) is a must. Route slips shown above are only rough guides (inquire at start).

Wednesday ne'er-do-wells taking up patio space at Champagne French Bakery in Westlake.
Wednesday Rides

The Club has an increasing number of ne'er do wells, retirees, hooky-players, and, well, bums, who are available for rides on days other than weekends. If you're available for a fun ride of 30 to 50 miles, the Wednesday ride may be just for you.

The fast (really fast) and slower groups leave the CVS at 23357 Mulholland Drive, in the mall south of Avenue San Luis, at 8:30 am and 8:15 am (8 am in the summer for the slower group), respectively. The intermediate group leaves from Albertsons (meet near the right rear of the lot) at Agoura Road and Las Virgenes at 8 am, 7:30 am in summer, most riding through Hidden Valley. The destination for all is Westlake.

Return is around noon, depending on mileage and how many goodies you consume at the Corner Bakery or the Champagne French Bakery in Westlake. The routes may vary from the route slips shown above (inquire at start).
