I am in Orange County, Ca (Irvine area). I Have been mountain biking for about a decade now, but just recently picked up a road bike. It's a used Specialized Allez Triple, which is just fine for my current level of riding. My goal is to eventually start doing some centuries, and other longer distance rides. For now I am still around 30-40 mile rides, but I will reach my goal eventually.
Cheers to all,
