    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.

    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

    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.

    A big thanks to Caligurl for telling me about this forum!!!

    I'm a new road bike rider, got a road bike as a present back in Feb of 06 but haven't really been able to do consistent riding until the past few months. I ride about 10 miles each morning M-F and at least one 50ish mile ride on weekends. I ride in Santa Monica in the mornings-- mainly just San Vicente loops (I'm the slow one on the purple bike in the obnoxious orange jersey) and on weekends Santa Monica to Palos Verdes.

    My bike isn't great (Specialized Dolce) but then again, I'm not a good enough cyclist at this point to really notice the difference between my bike and a really good one

    I hope to become a better cyclist as the weeks and months roll on. That's what I really like about cycling, there's so much to learn and there's always stuff to work on.

    Nice to meet you all.

    No pics on the bike yet-- I ride alone mostly too.

    Thanks Brandy! The riding alone isn't totally by choice. I do hope to get in on some of the socal rides!!

    hey guys, i've met some of you this past saturday at the chino hills meet, but for the rest of you, my name is jee-soo (pronounced G-Sue). I live in Irvine and um...well yeah.

    I just recently got into mtn biking, I have a 2006 gary fisher piranha, and i typically ride whiting ranch and chino hills state park for now.

    Here is a pic james took of me from last saturday:


    it was cool meeting a lot of you. i hope we can all ride together again sometime soon.

    Also question:
    where can i find a fairly cheap set of pedals/mtn shoes around here? i don't even mind if they're used, i just can't afford to put down >$100 on a set but I really want a pair (i HATE it when my feet slip off my pedals). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome G...for pedals and shoes...if you want new, www.Performancebike.com will generally have the best deals. You can pick up some Forte (Performance house brand) SPD pedals for about $35 and I think the cheapest shoes are about $45. Sign up for the Team Performance and get a 10% (or more) discount.

    For Used, you can always try craigslist.org.

    If that's still out of your league, just pick up a set of toe cages or Powerstraps, which attach to your platform pedals and you can wear regular shoes. Maybe $20 total.

    Rule #3 : Never wrestle with a pig: you both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
    Rule #5 : Never argue with an idiot: those watching might not be able to tell the difference.
    Rule #13: Always make sure she has a better time than you do.
