Thunder on the Lot 17th Year




May 16, 2011 Posted by | Uncategorized | Leave a comment



The CYCOLOGY ride originates from the Lancaster City Park and Ride on the south west corner of 10th Street West and Ave K-8. We gather at 7:00pm and depart promptly at 7:30pm. Helmets and lights are strongly recommended and it is a good idea to carry a spare tube and toolkit in case of unexpected happenings. With over 50 riders there is always someone to lend a hand when needed.

This year we also have incorporated The LanCoaster BLVD Experience into the CYCOLOGY ride. What this means is that on the second Wednesday Night of the month we will meet at 6:30 at Lancaster City Hall (44933 Fern Ave Lancaster – just off of Lancaster BLVD). We will start riding promptly at 7:00 and head over to the Lancaster City Park & Ride to pick up the CYCOLOGY group at 7:30. The ride will continue for a total of 15 miles and end back at Lancaster City Hall. This ride is Police Escorted and will be a slow (10mph average) social pace. This is the safest and most accountable ride that you can do. The CYCOLOGY ride will continue on to finish it’s typical 20+ mile route.

The LanCoaster BLVD Bicycle Experience will happen the second Wednesday night of every month from May until October. It is totally organized with set routes, police escort from the front and chase vehicles behind. Everyone is invited and we hope you’ll comer out and join us!!!

Making A Difference

I received this message on Facebook earlier last week and wanted to share it with everyone:

“Mayor Parris,
I just wanted to thank you for ALL that you are doing for our community. My wife and I teach ESL (English as a Second Language) at AVC, but, partially due to the budget cuts at AVC, we have just recently begun teaching FreeESL! within the Community Homes on Kingtree… and beginning next week (because we are growing) on Desert Sage. As Palmdale residents ourselves, we were disappointed that we have found no opportunities like this in our city… yet.
Keep up the great work! You are making so many more differences than you will ever know!
Scott (and Priscilla) Jenison.”

I think its obvious the Scott and Priscilla are the ones that really deserve our thanks for going out and making a difference in the community. It’s great to see the people of the Antelope Valley coming up with creative solutions to the challenges facing our community. 


P.S. I’d love to hear your ideas and feedback –
