    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:


    And me:

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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:

    Grant, Welcome!
    South OC has some great trails. Get out and start with some of the mellower trails, You can always walk sections that seem sketchy! I'd recomend El Moro canyon, stay in the canyon to start. Oneil park has some good level trails, with some sand and water crossings.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the info! I'll have to look into heading down to one of those parks next weekend if work doesn't have me in another state again.

    Hello, my name is george and I have an addiction. My bicycle took over and was a major reason I became single (would be funnier if that wasn't a joke) . Anyhoo - I own and run STR (check link in sig) and it's been my baby for two years now. Some photos from our last ride:




    (39.7miles and 7,200+ ft of climbing hurts)

    I'm John, I just started riding again a few months ago. You can usually find me cruising the streets of Pasadena on my Cannondale Synapse after the sun goes down and traffic's a little better.

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Tom, living in Manhattan Beach so I ride the South Bay trail during lunch breaks every other day.
    As a kid growing up I mostly rode road bikes, did some touring in Japan. But I haven't been riding much these last few years until I started up again late this summer. My bike is a 2002 Gary Fisher Utopia thats pretty stock except for pedals, brakes, bar-ends, saddle. Thinking of buying a road bike/cross bike/or maybe just change out my front forks on the GF...
    Cheers,
    -Tom
