The VCM Summer Picnic is Saturday, August 19 from 2-6pm. This year we’re moving to a new location – the Coniglio Family House on Laureles Grade in Carmel Valley – which features lots of room, a big grill, swimming pool, and even a shower for those who ride and want to clean up.
THE PICNIC: VCM provides barbecued burgers, sausages, hot dogs and the fixings, as well as coolers/ice, plates and utensils and non-alcoholic beverages. BYO Beer, Wine or other alcoholic drinks. Also we ask that members bring salads/side, appetizers or desserts to share.
- If your last name starts with A-H bring a dessert.
- If your last name starts with I-Q bring a salad or side dish.
- If your last name starts with R-Z bring an appetizer.
THE RIDES: Long Ride – Big Arroyo Seco Loop. Start/meet at the Coniglio Family House at 7am, climb Laureles Grade, Hwy 68 to River Road, Arroyo Seco and back over Cahoon Summit into Carmel Valley (about 87 miles). Shorter Ride – Climb to Cahoon Summit (with Cachagua Loop option on the way back) ride leaving at 9am. If you get back early, you can help setup the picnic or take a dip in the pool to cool off.
RSVP via Evite no later than August 12th so we can get a head count and know how much to bring. If you are planning on riding that morning, please mention what ride you will be doing in your RSVP comments. You can also RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org The Summer Picnic is free for VCM members. We do ask that any non-members give a $10 donation to the club.
We look forward to seeing you at the Summer Picnic!
