I live in the South Bay and ride the SB bike path most of the time. My goal this year is to improve on the sprint tri and see if I can move up to the OD. I currently ride a Specialized roadie but hope to add a Quintana Roo later this year.

Happytime: I have this tendency that, when I'm riding with girls, they'll just start going faster than me and head on up the road. I was just 'dropped' by them.

[edit: I called you Happyfeet, then changed it. My bad.]

Don't worry about it, Mo.
If you saw how I handled the running portion of my last race, the waddling-penguin-analogy is very apt.
And if I wore a touque and muffler, I can do a mean Chilly Willy impersonation, too.

I live in La Jolla. I ride PCH up the coast most often. I also head to Poway/Ramona on occasion, the Harmony Grove/Del Dios Hwy loop etc. I've done Palomar (east side) but it's been a while. In need to head east more to work on climbing.

Hello all! Stephen from Rancho Cucamonga here!

Pretty much I'll be starting up commuting to and from work, now that I have a bike again. I'm biking mostly because I don't want to be fat like all the other folks I work with! Heh..

Let's see now. I just got a 2006 Scott Speedster S30 yesterday. But I used to have a Specialized Allez Elite before it and the K2 Razorback 4.0 got stolen (grr...)

When I used to live in OC, I'd take the Santa Ana River Trail a lot, down to the Newport Beach Pier and back. I've done some pretty mild downhill up in Angeleus Oaks.

Right now I volunteer with the Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail, a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise the general awareness of biking in the city of Rancho Cucamonga, and to generate funds for improvements to our portion of the trail that runs from Fontana to Upland.

Our website is at http://www.pacificelectrictrail.org

And some maps of the routes I like to tell people about can be found at http://www.bikely.com/listpaths/by/Dipster

Oh! And I did the last LA Muddy Buddy too.. That's where the avatar picture is from.

Mark in San Diego here.

I just got my first road bike and I am hoping to start training for my first century (once my bike gets out of the shop). I can be seen riding around the mission valley area in San Diego around lunch time on weekdays and sometimes around scripps/miramar on weekends. I have also just started exploring the canyons (Marian Bear, Sycamore, Mission Trails) which I plan to do more of.

I am also gearing up to try to commute to work (15 miles one way), but Kearney Villa Road scares me.

Thanks ecnetsixe.
I find it such a relief that my road bike doesn't bite, kick, or have a mind of it's own!

Wow, I was reading this thread (all 19pages) and getting excited about posting myself, when, on p18, I got name-jacked! My name is also Stephen from Rancho Cucamonga. ARGHH!! Oh well, I go to school at UC Irvine, so I'll just change that to Steve from Irvine. HAH!

Oh well...

I just started road biking (abt a month ago). Now I'm riding around the foothills in Rancho Cucamonga for winter break. At school, (which I consider to be my home, really) my favorite ride is from UCI up Newport Coast, and down the ocean side (what a view at 45mph!). Anyways, I ride a charcoal grey 2005 Cannondale CAAD7 R700, that is my pride and joy ever since I got it in after Thanksgiving.

Thats all.

Yeah, the Back Bay route in Newport is a great ride. When I used to work in the research park across from UCI, we'd ride from there to the pier.

And we could just call you "Stephen number 2". :-P

Hey from Socalcyclist

Hi to all. I've been lurking around here for a couple months without formally introducing myself. I've met some great people here. I ride in San Dimas occasionally, but mostly in Ontario, Rancho C., and North Fontana. Here are some pics from my ride today.

I'm Lee, I live in Torrance, moving to Manhattan Beach in a few months. I'm a roadie and I ride a Leader 736R. A full carbon roadie and a mountain bike are in my near future.

I'm in medical sales, mostly Orthopaedics, but I'm unemployed right now, since Nov 10th, because I want to be. Working 65-70 hours a week for the past 3 years has really made me be a dull boy; I have another gig starting in January with another orthopaedic company.

I'm a noob to cycling as far as me and the bike is concerned but I have been an avid fan of the sport for 20 years and have followed the TDF since 1986.

I like good scotch, red meat, adrenaline rushes, girls with long hair, riding the fastest production motorcycle on the planet, surfing, fast cars and traveling to other countries. I'm not opposed to flinging myself out of an airplane, off a bridge, building, cliff or antennae tower as long as I have a parachute.

I'm from Texas ya'll but I hate country music, the Dallas Cowboys and rednecks. Howdy.

Thanks! I do like to eat...a lot.

The Edge is a nickname I've been stuck with by my buddies in Ireland. Everybody in Ireland has one and it is given by your friends with humor and endearment. I play guitar (horribly) and I'm usually on the "edge" of a lot of things...I don't take myself seriously despite the nickname.

I hope to meet all of you on or off the road. Thanks caligurl and brandy.
