RANCH WATER DISTRICT COMMUNITY ROOM  

6:30 Social Time -  7:00 Presentation

ambulance.png

Guest Speaker / Program:
In 2018, several of our members have needed medical/paramedic aid during our rides. One rider suffered a broken hip after skidding. One rider passed out at the coffee stop and another nearly did after a ride from dehydration . Another experienced a heart-attack on a ride. One plowed into yet another and they both needed medical aid. And one was hit by a car.   In several cases, fellow cyclists did not know how to properly respond to these emergencies. Do you?

In a panicked moment, can you accurately recall the proper breath-to-compression ratio for CPR? Basic first aid for bleeding ? Detecting signs and symptoms BEFORE they become a full-blown medical emergency? Knowing a few basics could save the life of your fellow club member OR your own life! Our club makes every effort to promote safety, but accidents and medical emergencies do happen. Let's be prepared. Come hear the Irvine Fire Department paramedics inform and educate us on basic aid for cyclists. 

Please spread the word to your ALL your cycling friends about this important meeting topic. Spouses are encouraged to attend! A little knowledge could help save a life.

See you (and your riding friends) this Thursday . Refreshments & snacks at 6:30.
No spandex (or lycra) required.

          Rose Parade Remote Ride

          See the Rose Parade the fun and easy way! No traffic hassles getting in and out of Pasadena and a chance to preview the floats up close before the parade starts. It's a ride that anyone can do as it is only 15 miles. 

          We will park at Alhambra Park, departing at 6:40AM and cycle 4 miles to the staging area where we see and smell the floats up close. When the parade starts at 8 AM, we then ride to a viewing spot, lock up our bikes and find a place to stand (be prepared to stand for 2 hours, but it's worth it!) When the parade is over, we jump on our bikes and pedal 5 miles away from the traffic and gridlock to lunch in Alhambra. Additional afternoon cycling is available for those desiring more mileage.

          What to bring: we suggest you dress in layers, bring a backpack with change of shoes for watching the parade, extra gloves and/or jacket or hat, and a lock for your bike. Bathrooms and snacks are available near our viewing spot.

          Directions from OC: 5 North for 30 miles to the 710 Freeway North (on the left exit toward Pasadena) Travel 4.4 miles, and exit onto W Valley Blvd. Turn right onto W Valley Blvd, traveling approx .6 miles to Fremont Ave. Turn left on Fremont Ave and travel 1.5 miles to Alhambra Rd. Turn right on Alhambra Rd, go about 5 blocks, then right on Raymond. Park there at Alhambra Park on the right (you will also see other bike clubs there) Approximate travel time from Irvine: 50 minutes

          Carpooling:  departing at 5:30AM from Jamboree & 5 Freeway is an option for those interested. We will meet promptly at 5:20AM at the Irvine Market Place: Lenscrafters, 13662 Jamboree Rd. It's the first driveway on the right (then you go right again, and right again; car would then be facing Jamboree) - the store faces the 5 and is the closest store to the 5 on the right. If you are planning on meeting us for carpooling, please provide your cell phone number to Penny (pennylp1@yahoo.com)  in case we need to contact you that morning.

          Beat the heat, ride along the beach!

          Start in Dana Point Harbor, ride down the coast as far as you want, then come back!

          Dana Pt to Christianitos - 19 Miles   Map/Elevation
          Dana Pt to Las Pulgas - 40 Miles   Map/Elevation
          Dana Pt to Oceanside - 60 Miles   Map/Elevation

          Note, total climbing should be about 300' less than shown on the maps.  Ride with GPS thinks there is over 150' of climbing each way on Harbor Dr.!

          The ride starts at the very end of Harbor Drive in Dana Point.  Park in either of the lots at the end across from each other, the one being closest to where the Pilgrim is docked, the other directly across the street.  DO NOT PARK in the Ocean Institute parking lot, the entrance to which is right at the end of Harbor Drive. There are rest rooms at the start.   Map Link to ride start 

          Camp Pendleton Access: If you registered before July 22nd with the USMC on-line you can still ride through the base in August with out a Bike Pass on the 'old' pre-authorization system. If not, expect to be turned away at Las Pulgas; turn back north, or ride the freeway shoulder to Oceanside & back. 
          If not registered, you can get to the Main Gate Visitor Center (M-F before 3pm) before the 11th to get your new Bike Pass (good for 1 year & free!)
