Hello fellow bikers!

Hey everybody! I'm always bad at introductions so bare with me...

I am a university student in California majoring in mathematics. Biking is my primary means of transit, and I typically ride about 10 miles daily. I rarely find myself in a car more than once or twice a month and like to keep it that way. I bike out of enjoyment, for exercise, and to be more eco friendly. This site looks like a wonderful community, and I look forward to getting to know all you other bikers out there!

My bike is an '03 (?I think?) Diamondback Sorrento with Cygo Night-Rover dual front lights and 2 blinkies.

See you around!

Nice to meet you! I'm in SoCal but frequented Daly City and San Francisco for a number of years.

The regional section sounds awesome! I'll give it a gander tomorrow as I've got to get in early to work tomorrow.

I'm about to crash, but I look forward to seeing you around Siu Blue Wind!

Hello natlogcabbysea, what school are you attending that you can manage to live in SoCal and be car free? That's impressive, to say the least!

Welcome to BF!

It can be tough, but it kills both the going-to-the-gym and the staying-at-0-emissions birds with one stone. I'm also at Loyola Marymount, which helps given that most conveniences are within a bike-able range.

...It also saves me time in the long run on going to the dreaded gym.

I hate gyms...I don't blame you a bit for not wanting to go there .

And I know people are going to get mad at me, but I do think that the Northern California folks are a lot more entertaining than SoCal (but then again, I grew up in the Bay Area after spending five years or so in SoCal--in Norwalk!).
