Ojai Cycling Weekend
Join fellow LG'ers for a weekend of cycling and fun in the spectacular Ojai Valley. The main event is the Ojai Valley Century on Saturday, June 4, which also offers a metric century and double metric option (which climbs through the Los Padres National Forest). We'll be staying at both the Hummingbird Inn and at the Rose Garden Inn. Over 20 rooms have been reserved for La Grange members (and family) so far, at a great group rate!

Other weekend events will include a carbo-load Italian feast Friday night under the giant oak trees at Boccali's, a catered barbeque Saturday night at the Inn, post-ride pool party, pre-breakfast "cool down" ride to Lake Casitas or Ventura Sunday morning - - or just take a nap in a hammock in the inn's lovely gardens. Bring the whole family! The Inn is a short walk to all the shops and the ride start, and there are many activities for kids and non-riders to do while you're out riding - - or volunteer to help with the ride and get a free ride entry!
