Bicycle Club – Silverstreaks


THE BICYCLE CLUB IS AN INFORMAL GROUP OF VILLAGE CYCLISTS WHO ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP OF GROUP RIDES. ORIGINALLY CALLED THE "RECYCLERS" WE NOW GO UNDER THE NAME OF "SILVERSTREAKS". WE HAVE  FORMAL RIDES ON SUNDAYS STARTING AT 9.00 am IN THE WINTER AND 8.30 am IN THE SUMMER. THE DESIGNATED DESTINATIONS ARE LISTED IN THE SCHEDULE, AS ARE THE MEETING POINTS AND TIMES OF DEPARTURE. THE RIDES ARE ANYWHERE BETWEEN 18 AND 30 MILES AT AN EASY PACE. 

SOME MEMBERS MAY ELECT TO LEAVE AT A DIFFERENT START TIME WHICH CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY PERSONAL COMMUNICATION OR BY MESSAGING THE GROUP USING THE CLUB EMAIL ADDRESS (see below)

DURING THE WEEK WE HAVE INFORMAL RIDES ON MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS. ON MONDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS WE MEET AT THE LOS OLIVOS COMMUNITY PARK ON EL CANTO (DIRECTIONS BELOW) 

ON FRIDAYS. STARTING TIMES ARE THE SAME AS THE SCHEDULED SUNDAY RIDE. THESE RIDES ARE GENERALLY LONGER BETWEEN 30 AND 45 MILES. HOWEVER,  ALMOST ALWAYS  THERE ARE A FEW WHO OPT FOR A SHORTER ROUTE. ON OCCASION THE MORE VENTURESOME RIDERS EMBARK ON MULTI-DAY CROSS COUNTRY TRIPS.

DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC WE GENERALLY BREAK UP INTO SMALLER GROUPS. WEARING A FACE MASK WHILE RIDING WITH THE GROUP IS MANDATORY. WE FEEL THAT AS THIS IS A CLUB RULE IT SHOULD BE RESPECTED EVEN IF A RIDER CONSIDERS IT UNNECCESSARY.

It is Encanto, but there isn’t a street sign for it on Bake.The park is on the right.  If you are coming from the other direction on Irvine Center Drive, for whatever reason, you can turn right on Encanto (the signal) and follow it around to where it turns left and you will end up at the same park.  If you are coming from Santa Vittoria, turn left on Lake Forest, then turn right on Bake.  You can’t turn into Encanto directly because there is an island there, so go up to the signal (Gitano), make a u-turn and go down to the next street and turn right.  The park is there on the right.;     Picnic =  Island area Dana Pt.
