    Hello All!

    Our traditional Velo Club Summer Picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 21 from 2-6pm.

    The picnic will be held at the Coniglio Family House on Laureles Grade in Carmel Valley, as in recent years. There’s lots of room, a big grill, swimming pool, and even a shower for those who want to clean up after the morning rides.

  • THE PICNIC: VCM provides barbecued burgers, sausages, hot dogs and the fixings, as well as coolers/ice, plates and utensils and non-alcoholic beverages. BYO Beer, Wine or other alcoholic drinks. Also we ask that members bring salads/side, appetizers or desserts to share.

    ·        If your last name starts with A-H bring an appetizer.

    ·        If your last name starts with I-Q bring a dessert.
