    Riding partner wanted...Fair Oaks, CA

    Hi, I'm looking for a riding partner to ride the American river trail or around lake Natomas. I'm a clydsedale that on a good day can average 15-16 mph. But for longer rides (20 plus) my avg goes down to about 14. I would like to find someone a little faster than me to train with. Thanks Doug

    Fair Oaks? You're fairly near me! I'm in Rancho Cordova. I'm not a Clyde any longer, but I'll be happy to make you work if you want a workout. I'm planning a 40 mile ride with a reasonable amount of climbing (approx 1500 feet, with one extended 9% grade) on Saturday morning/early afternoon. Sunday afternoon, a shorter slower ride on the ARBT.

    I just moved FROM Rancho Cordova to OH back in August and didn't get into cycling until I moved here. I'm jealous of the wonderful weather I've been hearing about back home. I will be home for Christmas, but I will be bikeless.

    Gearhead, what size bike do you ride? I have a couple of extras floating around the house. And if you need to get out of the house for a while when you are in town, send me a PM. Or do so before and I'll send you a phone number.

    Thanks Joel. I ride a 58. My family is actually in Placerville and that's where I will be staying, plus it will be a short and busy trip and I doubt I will have time to ride while I'm there. If I take a longer trip that direction in the spring or something, I will definitely look you up. Thanks again.

    Figures you'd be tall... I don't have a bike big enough for you anyway. Though there is a shop in Folsom (Bikes Plus) that rents bikes. I'm sure they'll have one. Maybe we can hook up for some riding another time.

    I hit up 15 miles on the ART every morning and evening for my commute. Feel free to email me anytime for a weekend ride, I'm fairly busy, but always looking for a good ride.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Sounds good Matt. Have a great trip.

    Doug, I'm good for tomorrow. PM me and we'll work out the details.
