Hello All! We’re looking forward to our first official IN PERSON VCM party in over a year. Welcome Back!
Our traditional Velo Club Summer Picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 29 from 2-6pm, for all members and guests who have been fully vaccinated for COVID 19.
The picnic will be held at the Coniglio Family House on Laureles Grade in Carmel Valley, as in recent years. There’s lots of room, a big grill, swimming pool, and even a shower for those who want to clean up after the morning rides.
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.
