My name is John and I live in Carlsbad, I recently caught the bike bug, it was a big bite. I just purchased my first road bike. The Scott CR1 Comp 2010. So far so good, I really enjoy how light this bike is. I would really like to find some riders to bike with that live in Carlsbad area. I am planning on biking across the U.S. in April-May. My plan is to complete the journey in 45 days averaging 60-75 miles/day. I have been riding 30-35 miles about 4 days a week since I started last month. I would like to plan a trip up to san Clemente through camp pendelton some time soon...
