Ventura, California

Hi, everybody!

I'm Matt. I'm a local resident of beautiful Ventura, CA. Unfortunately, it has been foggy lately and miserable to ride the bike around.
Speaking of which, it was a beautiful vintage French Road bike. It has since been stashed away in the garage for two reasons: The lower bracket pedaling system needs to be replaced, and I can't carry all my job equipment around on a bike like that. So since its demise, I've been using a car. a pos that has already made owning a car a burden and financial hardship.

So I'm trying to find a replacement road bike as soon as possible so I may retrain my legs for long rides up to Ojai and through to Santa Barbara.

Anyway, I'd be interested in knowing if there are any bike groups in the area that may help me get back in to the swing of things.

I'm new to the forums and will check out the rest of what BikeForums has to offer.

Good Luck and Happy Riding!
