    Hallo from SoCal!

    45 yr old single guy who just started riding road bikes again after a 20 year hiatus. Live near downtown LA and commute to work on the 'Olympic Blvd Speedway' via six cylinder, 3500 lb car, Mon-Fri.

    My plan is to park my car Friday night and go two wheels good until Monday morning. I bought a 2010 Felt F95 Team last week and couldn't be happier. The bike rides fast and looks gorgeous,, although the first thing i did was wrap the frame up in old inner tubes (ca. NYC 1980's). The ride is amazingly smooth and I love the fact that I can coast up hill while my buddies on their cruisers are huffing and puffing away.

    I'm so glad to be riding again and can't tell you guys how much I appreciate this forum. Thanks and happy riding, everyone!

    Welcome to Bike Forums! Don't forget to check out the Southern California regional forum. We have lots of riders from the LA area here.

    Thank you, guys! I will definitely check out the SoCal regional forum. And might I say that it sure feels different being on the other side of the car door, as it were...

    And I just rode my first "art ride" through Eagle Rock/Highland last Saturday (via Bike Oven). It was amazing and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to get back on a bike.
