Looks like I'm another newcomer from Orange County, Ca. I just started riding...last week! I got a Trek 1000 WSD for a Mother's Day/birthday present and I'm hooked. I've only taken a couple of rides so far, 24.5 miles was the longest, but I'm looking to up my mileage. I've been riding the Santa Ana River Trail down to the beach path and up to the end of Bolsa Chica. I'm hoping to join a local club once I get more comfortable riding.
