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!).

Sunday is my one day to sleep in but I'll take you up on that one day.

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

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 :D

Hi Chris and Eric, welcome to the forums and to the So Cal region. Hopefully, you both can join on some rides. :D

RM05 11-05-06 01:00 PM

That'd be real fun! Thanks!

VeloChris 11-05-06 07:13 PM

Thanks!

I am Haim, I moved to Long Beach 4 months ago and started riding at the same time. I usually ride 4-5 times a week on PCH, mostly to Balboa Island and back, and occasionally further out to Laguna Beach.

This is my bike:

No need to explain yourself Mo. We love you just the way you are. ;) :p

Hey, If I want to ride down PCH from Long Beach toward Huntington/Newport where should I start? I understand PCH thru Long Beach can be pretty hairy so I figured I'd find a place to park south of there and do a down and back.

mrdick 11-07-06 01:48 PM

try the area where the long beach aquarium is. that should be a pretty good starting spot.

Hi everyone! My name is Debbie and I live in Hermosa Beach. My typical rides are north along the strand and the PV loop. I'm new to cycling, been riding since May when I bought a road bike to do RAGBRAI (my friend insisted it was just like Mardi Gras, but on wheels....it was close, but there's none of that pesky physical activity coming between me and my beer at Mardi Gras!) Anyway, the trip was a blast and I'm hooked. I did the Rosarito-Ensenada ride and the Solvang Prelude and am hoping to do a century in the next few months.

Looking forward to the chance to meet and ride with you guys!

Mo'Phat 11-10-06 02:18 PM

Hey Debby, welcome! The welcome from the woman constituency of SoCal Forums would be overwhelming if not for the fact that all of them are cruising to Joshua Tree at the moment.

Gretzky 11-10-06 07:01 PM

Hello, and welcome Debbie :beer:

I'm Grant from Irvine. I just started riding again about a month and a half ago for the first time since my early teenage years. Once I'm a bit stronger of a rider I'll be hitting up some of the mountain trails I've heard so much about! I've been mainly riding all of the paths around Irvine for the time being to get myself back in shape!

Here's my ride:
