Twice a year the SB ski club rides the country roads of Solvang, whether the reason for pedaling is for exercise, or to build a thirst for the wineries in the Valley, everyone enjoys meeting new people and the delicious Bar-B-Q at the end of the ride.
Everyone 21 and over is welcome to join!
We need to know how many cyclists want to participant, so registration is required. RSVP for you and your cycling buddies to Darren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club has been riding the Santa Ynez Valley for decades and has some favorite routes, or you can do your own ride if you pedal to the beat of a different drummer.
Whether you choose a 35 mile loop for a few hours of cycling, or prefer to pedal shorter distances from winery to winery, the ride takes in beautiful countryside scenery. At the conclusion of the ride is a nice barbeque at Hans Christian Andersen Park in Solvang. We grill up burgers (meaty, fishy and vegetarian options) and everyone brings a small side dish (salad, cookies, chips, etc.). One part BBQ and one part potluck this meal is a highlight to hungry cyclists.
The Nitty-Gritty details before we cycle and get gritty.
We meet at HCA Park at 9AM, see old friends and meet new ones, take a group picture, have a quick recap of event info (when lunch will be served, a map of different routes, etc.) and then people start pedaling.
There will be routes for every type of rider, from the novice to expert. We will have meeting places assigned so members of different levels can group up to socialize. We will have a sag wagon to pick up any purchases you make, as well as pick you up if your purchases get the better of you. In the afternoon we will head back to the park where we will enjoy a great BBQ of burgers and veggie burgers. The cost is only $10 and you must bring a dish to share for the potluck. Plus, there is always a raffle with bottles of wine and small prizes at the end of the luncheon.
You are excited, want to go and wonder how to join!
