HEAD PHONE ALERT! the use of iPOD headphones in the SCVelo peloton is not just risky... it is now FORBIDDEN. If you happen to have these in your ears on the ride, you just might hear more than the music... from the management
The routes vary in length from 30-65 miles; consult our Ride Calendar for the specifics. The 17 mph pace picks up at the city limits where the peloton divides into ability groups. There is a meeting point halfway through each ride. We all stop for traffic signals, flat tires and other mechanical difficulties. Join us to improve your riding skills; experience a paceline and echelon on some thrilling and enjoyable routes in the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond...
Note: The traditional Tuesday Night Rides on the Old Road are over. Some Club members may choose to ride the Rio Norte course for criterium practice, but as the Velo does not sanction this event, its recommended that you wear a "generic" kit to avoid confusion. Of course, head and tail lights are a must in the ever darkening conditions.
