    Agreed, and you bet (cost of bikes) and one of the reasons I ride the cruiser, it's super low maintenance and cheap! Actually it was given to me used and I've put 14,000 miles on it! Had C/L been...

    Haha, I'm game but I ride centuries on a beach cruiser (and a Clyde) so I'm not fast, but do love it.

    A couple of years ago the family and I were in Palm Desert, I hooked up with a bike group out...

    Lot's of good info, I think things are much more diluted these days, Meetup in SoCal is 40+ groups just within 25 miles of OC, not including LA or San Diego or other social sites like FB. Sure, lots...

    I did a quick map-out on RWGPS (which can run a little high, actual numbers could be a little less) and your whole 100 miles from Westmorland to Pauma is 6000-ish feet of climbing. Your first 50 to...

    +1. It really depends on what you're looking to accomplish (you didn't say other than you didn't complete a 200k). A lot of folks from my perspective over train, longer miles is really quite doable...

    Now that is funny!

    It's been high 30's in SoCal on my morning commutes lately and more frost this week than all of last year. Come on with that global warming, this sucks!!

    Great to hear folks...

    Anyone with a brain at least the size of pea understands you segregate the good from the bad in society (except CA Democrats). Those in charge, mostly hiding in gated communities, believe it's a...

    $500 is not a bad budget for a starter bike. Look for close-outs or last year's models. If you're handy, Craigslist is ever better and like bassjones said they're often really good deals because...
