Need to find some riding buddies
That live in St.Petersburg/Gulfport Florida. I currently ride with a few of my friends, but they aren't as serious about riding as I am, so finding someone to ride with that is around my age (18) would be nice. I doubt anyone on the Clyde/Athena forum live near me, but if you do, that would be awesome.
Also, it is worth noting that I enjoy riding fast. I do not own a full on road bike because I don't really like them, but I can easily keep up with one on my FX. To those of you that might suggest asking your LBS or checking school board postings, I have. The LBS does group rides, but they only go once a week and they don't go very far. And the only people who commute by bike are hipsters with crappy attitudes on their colorful fixed gear road bike.
