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.
Check Performance out. They're blowing out some of the Adidas mtb shoes and you can pick up a set of Shimano SPDs for around $50.

Steepandcheap.com recently had a set of Crankbrothers pedals and 661 shoes for like $60.... Keep an eye on the site, they may have that deal or a similar one again....

I've been on this forum for awhile, but I never filled out anything on this thread, so I thought I should finally just do it!

My name is Rick and I live in Whittier, so I ride Turnbull Canyon, La Mirada Loops and Coyote Creek bike path from home. On weekends I ride with the Orange County Rebel Riders (hence the OCRR) out of Irvine. You are all welcome to ride with us . Check out the Ride Schedule tab at: www.ocrebels.com and print the route sheet for the ride you'd like to do. All the rides are free, and the only rules are 1. Ride Safe and 2. Wear a helmet.

Other than Rebel Rides, I ride centuries and double centuries, esp. the doubles that are California Triple Crown approved. My wife Jackie also rides centuries and CAL Triple Crown doubles, plus organizes double century training rides for women every winter / spring.

I usually ride a Ti GT Edge, but also have an 853 GT Edge, a Mercian Vincitore touring bike, an old Masi ('77) and an even older Hercules 3-Spd ('57). My wife rides a Redline Conquest D (D for disc brakes) or (less often) her Paramount.

All our bikes are pretty much Shimano (the Masi has some Campy) and I'm building up a new frame with SRAM Force.

Best Regs,
Rick / OCRR

Also, Nashbar has Crank Bros EggBeater pedals for $50 (and check the coupon forum for an additional 10% off code). I much prefer EBs over SPuDs.

Add some bacon and you'd have a wonderful breakfast there.

while we're on the subject-- do any of you guys know a good route to get from the end of the bike path in pv(or from palos verdes blvd) to hb? i've heard things can get a little tricky between those two spots.
cool maybe ill see ya on the route. as for getting from PV to HB, ive never taken that route, youre gonna have to obviously take some roads. after the bike path, get up to Esplanade Ave then take it to PV Blvd. right on PV Blvd, stay to the right when you come up to a major split off, which will turn to PV Drive West. take that all the way south till you hit Hawthorne. stay on PV Drive West which will turn into PV Drive South after Hawthorne. head down PV Drive South till it turns into 25th Street in San Pedro. i dont know the area after that so heres a map you can look at:
http://www.metro.net/riding_metro/bi...a_bike_map.pdf

if you want to ride through PV to 25th street ill gladly show you the way.

If she doesn't then maybe I will.

I'm Steve from RPV. I usually park the car in the shopping center at the end of Hawthorne & PV Drive then ride to M.D.R. and back; 35-50 miles depending how I feel. I have been a slacker for the past month though.

I'vewheard about people like you. After seeing your rig (sweet fenders), I will never complain about another headwind. Seriously, I feel ashamed of my mileage and my tiny seat pouch ( never thought I'd say that out loud!).

Whats up everyone! Name's Eric. Age 22. Art/Graphic Design student at CSUN. I don't get enough sleep.

I try to ride anywhere I can. I've just got into cycling on the road to commute to school but now I want to ride my bike everywhere and everyday. I might add front brakes and take it for a ride at the canyons at Castaic Lake or find an empty parking lot, set up some cones and run my own autocross-like track.

Hi everyone
My name is Chris and I'm 19.
If I'm not at school or working at the bike shop, I'm usually on my bike.
I've been riding for a few years on a mountain bike, and I just got a road bike.
I live in South Orange County so I have ridden pretty much every MTB trail here.
Lately I've been doing a lot of night MTB rides, which I love.
I also have found the joys of doing road rides at night too
