A number of new members have joined the Velo Club in the past few months. Some we’ve already seen on rides… some have recently moved into the area… and some are getting back on the bike again.
Welcome new members: Ralph Wege, Thomas Clifton, Serina Searson, Christina Cuva Rodriguez, Catherine McConville, Ran Weerasuriya, Jennifer Zeigler, and Darrel Duque.
Look for them on one of the group rides or on the road and say hi.
Join us this Monday, May 29th for another trip to Pie Nirvana as we head out to Gizdich Ranch for a Memorial Day Pie Ride.
There’s an 8am start at the Anchor by the Wharf for the 70 mile route), plus a “Pie Lite” version that starts at Pezzini’s at 9am (42 mile route).
Elkhorn Rd. is still closed in one section for road repairs… UPDATE: Monterey County has confirmed that Elkhorn Rd. is now open, so we can do the regular route

We had so much fun bowling, we thought “why not try it outside”?
Join your fellow VCM members for a Bocce Ball Party at the Talbott Vineyards Tasting Room in Carmel Valley on Sunday, June 4 from Noon to 2pm. We’ll also do a pre-Bocce ride up to Cahoon Summit (and back) in the morning!
We’ve got the Bocce Ball Courts reserved for free and you can bring your own lunch or snacks. Plan on buying a glass or two of Talbott’s vino as we can’t bring our own drinks.
Spouses, significant others, (and even long-lost cousins if you are willing to vouch for them) are welcome to join. Just indicate how many people you are bringing when you RSVP.
We’ll organize 4 player teams. If you want to put together your own team, indicate your team name and the other players on your team in your response. We’re limited to about 30 people who can play, so respond early to make sure you get a spot.
The pre-party ride in the morning will climb to Cahoon Summit. Start time at 8am at Talbott’s which will give us time to get up, down and cleaned up a little before Bocce. Let us know if you are interested in riding in your comments.
Please RSVP via EVITE by Tuesday, May 30th so we can get a head count.
