Happy New Year SYVCC.

See below for an upcoming SYVCC volunteer opportunity. For the Saturday rides this week, the club is doing a combined ride with the Santa Maria Cycling Club that was organized by Tony Gamberutti and Dr J’s. This will be a great opportunity to meet other cyclists from the county. 

The plan is for the SM group to meet at Dr. J’s in Buellton at 8:30am. Corey will have hot coffee from Cafe Dolce. Group will depart for Solvang @ 8:45am

They will meet up with SYVCC group – both A and B rides will ride together to traffic circle then split up. Group from Santa Maria may split among one group or the other. Both rides will do either entire Valley Ride or shorter version (B ride only).

Dr. J group will meet back in Buellton after ride and head over to Firestone for lunch and beers. Thinking probably around 1:30pm to allow time for people to change etc. SYVCC riders are encouraged to join the ride and for lunch.
