Pen Velo Women at the Beat the Clock TT

Pen Velo Racing/Summit Bicycles is now recruiting women road and cyclocross racers for 2017. In addition to adding more riders to our strong W55+ masters team, we are especially looking to add racers in the younger masters age groups as well as elites (under 35). All experience levels and categories are welcome. If you want to find out what we’re all about, please come to our first recruiting ride on Saturday, October 15. We’ll meet at the Woodside Town Hall parking area (map) at 9:30am for a casual no-drop ride around the Peninsula. Route is TBD – it will include rolling hills, but no sustained climbs.

To RSVP for the ride or to ask questions, click HERE.

Can’t make this ride? We plan to have another one in November, also in Woodside – date TBA.

Evening Group Rides Start on March 10

With the onset of Daylight Savings Time, the Tuesday/Thursday group rides will begin on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 and will continue through the third Thursday in September. Rides start at Canada Rd and Hwy 92. These rides are very fast paced (22-24mph) with a great deal of assertive/aggressive riding. Click HERE for more information on the evening rides.

For those who desire a less intense (19-22mph) evening ride, there is a “B” group which departs from Canada & 92 at 5:50pm. Click HERE for more information on the “B” ride.

In early March, please be sure to bring a bike light – the sun will set shortly before the ride returns to the start (7:15-7:25pm).

Monthly No-Drop “Coffee Ride” – Saturday, October 4

smile_bike_coffee_mugOur monthly no-drop “Coffee Ride” will take place this Saturday, October 4, 2014.

This ride is targeted at newer riders looking for some more fitness or/and group riding experience before joining the regular club ride, non-club riders looking for an introductory ride, and more experienced riders who want to get some recovery miles in their training. The pace and duration should fit squarely as a base/recovery ride in a more experienced riders training calendar, or as a challenging but very achievable ride for a less experienced rider. Women riders should find the pace manageable and are encouraged to join in. If you know someone who is considering joining the club, but would like to ease into it, please send them our way.

We will depart with the regular club ride from Canada/92 at 8:15am, then drop off at the end of Canada and STOP and regroup at Roberts Market, to then do our own ride from there.  This gives riders the length of Canada to decide whether they want to do the regular club ride or get in some social base miles with the Coffee Ride.  The ride leader will drop back through the club ride as we approach Woodside Rd, to announce the ‘no-drop’ regroup at Roberts.

The ride will be somewhere in the range of 2.5 to 3 hours (40-50 miles, 15-17mph), inclusive of coffee stop. The route varies, but a typical ride would take us through Woodside and Portola Valley, then along Foothill Expwy to the Stevens Creek Reservoir. At the reservoir we will double back, making a coffee stop in Los Altos on our return trip back to Canada/92.

The ride is open to both PV members and non-members. If you have not done this ride before, please RSVP to the ride leaders first. For more information or to RSVP, contact the ride leaders, Franklin Rice and Ken Jorgensen (coffeeride@penvelo.org).
