    Howdy from Orange County

    Hey there,

    Newb here from beautiful San Clemente, CA. I just bought my first real bike the other day (old LeTour) for some change and I'm in the process of taking everything apart so I can clean, lube, and learn how to do maintenance myself. Looks like I'll be dropping in a local shop tomorrow to unstuck a stubborn freewheel...

    I love to run and swim, so I bought the bike with hopes of eventually running a triathlon and also so I can start riding to work and save on gas.

    Looking forward to perusing the archives for info to help me recondition my old Schwinn...

    -Justin

    Welcome to Bike Forums, Justin. Check out the Southern Califorinia regional forum for other riders in your area. Do you ride along Coast Highway? I ride from Oceanside to San Clemente quite often.

    Not quite yet, but i do plan to! I love the idea of riding town to town around here...the frontage roads by the beach seem way to good to not trek by bike. I haven't been to Oside in a while...maybe i'll head down there sometime soon.

    I haven't been in that area for years, but I thought the only route along the coast by Camp Pendleton (where I was stationed for a few years) between Oceanside and San Clemente is I-5...

    thank you kindly! the base just recently opened up to civilian riders once again, but only from the back gate, northward (including pulgas road to the main gate). a capt i know told me that he bikes from pulgas to san clemente via the trail that leads to trestles from town.
