Get some fresh air, take in the scenery and enjoy the ride with some of the world’s best cyclists.

Join us at Lake Mead on Friday, November 18, 2016, for an exhilarating bike ride with CA Technologies CEO
Mike Gregoire and members of the Trek-Segafredo cycling team. All levels of riders are welcome and the
round-trip transfer from Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino is included. This is your chance to meet and ride
alongside world-class cyclists.



Registration: Entries are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no ride fee. A waiver and release of liability must be signed on-site prior to ride start.


What to bring: Your riding gear and a bit of energy. CA will provide the rest—choice of bike, helmet, socks and keepsake cycling jersey.


Bikes: Will be provided free of charge and must be reserved on the registration form. If you prefer to bring your own bike, please indicate that on the form. You have the choice of hybrid (flat bar), standard road or premium road. Bike fittings will be held on Wednesday and Thursday at Mandalay Bay.


Weather: The area is normally dry in November, with daily highs in the mid-60s and overnight lows in the upper 40s. Please pack appropriate clothes.


Ride options: Choose from two road course options: 12 miles or 34 miles. All rides will start and finish from the same location. For the 34-mile ride, the total elevation change is approximately 2,300 feet—this course is recommended for experienced riders.


Guides/support: Both rides will have guides as well as vehicle support in case of mechanical or physical difficulty. Snacks and drinks will be available at the start/finish area.


You must be a registered attendee of CA World to participate in the bike ride and can sign up for the bike ride during the registration process. If you are already registered for CA World and would like to join us on the bike ride, just log back into the registration system with your confirmation code and add the bike ride to your registration.

Have you been waiting to register for CA World '16 because you wanted to see what sessions would be available? If so, I have great news for you -- the Session Catalog went live yesterday with more than 200 pre-conference educations sessions and 600+ overall sessions, including hands-on-labs, tech talks and panel discussions. More sessions are being added every week, so check back often!


New in this year's catalog you'll find a "My Favorites" feature that allows you to favorite/save the sessions you are most interested in.

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, CA World '16 registration is open. In that post, I highlighted the fact that we're offering 50% more pre-conference education this year.

That's not true. We're actually going to have 100% More Pre-Conference Education . That's right, we're offering two times as many educational opportunities this year -- before the conference even starts.


I know that many of you are anxiously awaiting the full session catalog. That's coming soon -- in August. In the meantime, visit the CA World '16 Sessions page to see what's coming and learn Why You Should Attend.

This news won't go live publicly until after the July 4th holiday here in the U.S. but I wanted to give our community members a sneak peek: Registration for CA World '16 is now open.


The CA World team has done an amazing job building upon the success of last year's event, while enhancing the programming in response to your feedback. CA World is your opportunity to gain valuable, actionable knowledge and insights to help your company get an advantage in the application economy. New this year, attendees will enjoy:
