i am billy and i used to ride raod bikes with my grandpa when i was younger then i got into skateboarding and then kickboxing and i think i have come full circle back to the bike. i like to lift weights, play music and ride a bike. i just got a mtb and i ride on the streets around my house (la sierra area of riverside) very early in the morning mostly (need some slicks) but someday i will have a roadie to do that with. i try to make it out to trails on the weekends.

I'm Stephen and just started reading these forums. I work in Buena Park and live in Cypress and have been using my Cannondale F500 for commuting since I smashed up my car a couple months ago and found I have no desire to fix it or buy something else. I've also been riding Coyote Creek, SART and the San Gabriel River Trail on the weekends and a couple days during the week. Here's a pic of the 97(ish) F500 commuter and I just won a 90 vintage Cannondale Black Lightning last night on ebay. Guess I'm going back to my roots as a roadie.

Well...I took a wild guess! Performance calls that location as "North Torrance". I've never heard of a section of Torrance referred to as "North" before....:D

Welcome! If you're old enough do you remember the Aero Mexico jet that crashed in Cerritos back a few years ago? That's the first thing that came to mind when I saw your location.

ADlBOO 10-17-06 05:54 PM

I've heard about it, im only 20, but it crashed like less than 1-2 miles from my house.

merider1 10-17-06 06:21 PM

Welcome Richard and Kurtis! :D

Hello all, my name is Cole. Iíve been riding my Marin Bolinas Ridge for about 3 years now as an exercise routine. I ride during my lunch hour 3X-4X a week on the S.A.R.T. Got my first road bike last month, an 06 Felt F3C at Performance during their double points deal. Use the double points to get pedals and shoes. After a month of test rides and shopping for the right shoes (Sidi Genius Mega) I went on my inaugural ride this Saturday from Long Beach to Crystal Cove via PCH. Iím still a noob at road bike and donít have enough mileage on this F3C to have an opinion about it yet. Iím Hoping to learn from you all and this forum because this F3C is too much bike for me. Looking forward to meeting all of you on the many group rides.

Cole

Dan Drew 10-23-06 09:05 PM

who, what, why, where...
 
OK,
I'm Dan, from Cosa Mesa, Ca.
I consider myself a Mt Biker and ride whenever I have the time.
Some of my favorite rides are here in OC. The local ride for me is El Moro ( crystal cove), but do others. One of my favorites is Satiago truick trail, but I need to have a high energy to finish is. Also regular rides for me are Bell view trail, this goes from the entrance of Dove canyon to Caspers wilderness park.

roadfix 10-23-06 09:58 PM

Welcome Dan! Try to join us on our next mtb ride. I haven't ridden in Crystal Cove since the fires back in 1993....
