Why fear tomorrows, they may never come...
Whats up everyone?
I just moved to the bay area (Fremont, specifically) from Baltimore, MD about 3 months ago. I'm 26, ride fixed and also just recently bought a 2010 CAAD9 w/ rival-force mix.
It's colder out than I thought California would be.. I guess lack of humidity. I'm used to 90's and 100% humidity. (which is terrible honestly)
But I didn't think I'd be buying a ton of winter gear when I got here.. haha. <3 the PI outlet in Gilroy. One of the guys that works there did the opposite move I did.. CA > DC and back to CA.. I can see why, I like it here!
I'm 24, and I ride a 2004 Giant OCR-2. I live in the south bay, SJ area, but I do ride in SF from time to time. Riding to lose some pounds before next summer
Just moved out here (here meaning northern California, the big West), from Durham, NC. And already, the cycling out here is amazing - if for no other reason than the lack of humidity compared to the east coast.
I would love to find some mountain bike routes close enough to Davis to ride to the trailhead (living car-free out here), so if you have suggestions, please let me know.
Thanks, and I hope to meet more of you from Davis in person.
Some of you may know me from my old Outspokin' Cyclist columns in the Herald Sun newspaper.
New to the forums, 17, and I ride a Volume Cutter fixed gear and Scattante R330 (just getting into road). Don't have too much time to ride outside of home (around Cupertino/Sunnyvale) now that school's back, but definitely hoping to make some trips up to SF. I drop by SJSU/IminusD a bit so might see some of you around haha
I'm 24, still pretty new to cycling. Started in April with a Scott S40, it was a bit big so went to a smaller Specialized Allez Elite. I love riding around SF and trying to do a full commute to Mountain View every other week. My goal is the full 50mi commute once a week - weather permitting - by next spring. I'm always looking for more people to ride with on the weekends!
Oh yeah and... BIKE PARTY!! (I'm originally from SJ )

Happy New Years everyone!
Born again because it's been +15 years since I've been on a road bike. My previous road bike was a Giants Kronos. After some prodding from relatives and friends, I finally decided to dive into the deep end of the pool. I am currently building up a relatively budget-minded bike with a 2002 Cannondale CAAD5 3000Si 52cm frame. I am hopeful that the bike will be ready by Spring/Summer time.
I'm located in Brentwood, and see quite alot of roadies, so I may see some of you someday.
Hello hello! Loved to ride as a kid and have decided to get back on the old bike. Ali, 25 from the east bay. Waiting to get a nice shiny road bike off of layaway soon. Can't wait to get out there now that the weather is somewhat decent. Hope to see you all out there!
So many new NorCal peeps. Welcome all.
22 y/o SJSU engineering student from Hayward. Avid motorcyclist but havnt ridden a bicycle regularly in 10 years or so. Hate running but must stay fit for rugby to be fun, hope cycling is the way to go lol.
Im currently building a single speed SE Lager, will post pics when done. First road bike too, pretty excited
Oh yeah... @jandro, cant wait to do bike party!
Well cycling also helps with those fancy shmancy scooters things, or so I hear.
I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
Stay calm and bring a towel.
50+ rider here. Started riding again last March, so just finish my first full year of riding.2,125 miles so far and counting.
Live in the Menlo Park area and ride a few times a week with my long ride on the weekend. Current ride is a 09 look 566. I am a clyde, but getting smaller and a little faster. Old La Honda rd scares me.
