Looks like a great week of weather coming up. One note on the WNR this week, we will meet at the Draughtsmen in Solvang after the ride for drinks. Please come out and join us even if you can’t make the ride, we will probably be there by 6:15p. Last Thursday there was a workshop about funding for the design of a future valley regional connector project. The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, the County of Santa Barbara, and the Cities of Buellton and Solvang are preparing an application to fund the Santa Ynez Valley Active Transportation Regional Connector. The project will extend an existing multiuse path to connect Buellton, Solvang and the Santa Ynez Reservation. This interactive map and survey will provide crucial community feedback to inform decisions made in the planning process. Please take the survey and view the map on the link below.


Upcoming Club Team TT

Our May TT Giro De SYV will be May 13th to May 27th. We will be building the teams in the next 2 weeks
1  segment you can ride with others, and 1 individual segment you ride alone. We are going to have 3 Team TT’s this year to coincide with the Grand Tours. Come out and give it a try, it’s a great way to meet other club members and a lot of fun. All club members are welcome to join a team.
We will announce the two segments in the next week
