Hi bike peeps, I'm Erik. I ride mostly with my gf, usually around the Rose Bowl area here in SoCal (at a leisurely pace). She's on a blue Raleigh comfort bike and I'm on either a Giant fcr or my new baby, a Bianchi 928.

This is a great forum and it's nice to see local rides and everyone's impressions of them. The century type rides sound really cool and hopefully we'll be in good enough shape to try a half century soon.


Cheers,

Erik

Hey Welcome Erik!

I'll be doing a little riding around the Rose Bowl this evening before heading out to Griffith Park and joining the gang on our weekly social night ride up to the observatory. Join us one of these days...:)

Welcome Erik and other new faces to So Cal! Hope those who are close enough to ride will come out and join us. We have a shorter ride scheduled for next Sunday and BBQ if any of you want to come out and meet folks who post on here. :)

Welcome Erik!

When do you ride around the Bowl?

Turtle1 03-08-07 12:11 PM

Thanks for all the nice words of welcome. I've had an eye on the weekly Griffith Park rides and I have vowed to give it a shot one day (i.e. when my legs and lungs can handle a group ride). We usually get out to the Rose Bowl on Saturday or Sunday mornings. Hopefully with daylight savings time coming up, I'll be able to get more weekday riding in as I do believe I fallen in love with riding a bike:eek: :D

Turtle1 03-08-07 05:11 PM

Well, I'll be at the Bowl with my daughter this evening. Actually, we'll be in the parking lot learning how to ride in a straight line and use brakes (instead of feet) to stop. So Fixer, if you see a guy screaming at his 9 year old in the lot that'll be me.

Have a great time at the Observatory tonight folks, I saw some pics from a previous ride and it looks gorgeous up there.:)

My name is Jon and I'm a cycloholic. When I'm not on my bike I'm thinking of my next ride, which is usually with Bramwell's OCW Saturday Century guys or with my club Veloce Santiago or on Wednesdays with BCI in Fountain Valley. I started riding again last year after a long time off the bike and I'm hooked again. Last year my goal was to get a Planet Ultra KOM jersey and I did it, this year is to do it again and get the California Triple Crown jersey. My first double will be Solvang and they say it's a good first one so I'm looking forward to it.

I ride a White Carbon Token. Token? Never heard of a Token until last year when I crashed my steel Marin an bent the frame and needed a new frame so I went to ebay and found this beautiful white carbon Token. I built it up with my components off my Marin and I've logged 2000 miles on it and I love it!

I would be interested in riding with a different group on Wednesdays, BCI is too slow for me and I end up riding alone anyways, which is usually SART to PCH to Newport Coast and back 53 miles from my house.

Oh, I'm an "At Home Dad" which is my job with two boys, ages 3 years and the other 10 months. I also sell remanufactured Inkjet and Toner cartridges from my house through my friends business. I play the French horn for the Fullerton HS program every year, this year is "Little Women" and opening night is Friday the 23rd at Plummer in Fullerton. These kids are great, every year they blow me away. I've been to Broadway shows that didn't have as much talent as the kids of Fullerton HS.

Well I hope to ride with you guys soon.

Hey Mike! Welcome.

I ride most weekdays on the same path as you. Manhattan to Ballona Creek and back. This is my ride: Small world :D

....wait a second I think we may have already 'met' on another thread ;)

I start riding Oct 2006. Last year my ride (the one I did most miles on) was my Harley V-Rod and this year the goal is to do more mile on my bicycle than the motorcycle. The Car left for (really) rainy days.
Riding with the SFVBC on weekend and from home (Encino) to work (Calabasas) 3 times a week.
I think, and my wife knows, that me too... I am a cycloholic.

My name's Dave, and I live in Central Orange County. Or to be more exact, I live in Garden Grove. I've ridden extensively around Central, North, and a little bit of South OC, as well as some excursions into Long Beach (including the San Gabriel River Trail all the way up to El Dorado Park), through the use of this program:

http://www.bikemetro.com/

Well, before the website short-circuited anyway.

I've ridden the Santa Ana River Trail many times, so you may have seen me. More than likely, you've left me in the dust, as I have been passed by a whole bunch of people on road bikes, and some on mountain bikes and hybrids. I'm the fat Chinese guy with glasses in a gray fleece jacket and swimming trunks, trying to haul ass on an old blue 10-speed road bike with suicide levers on the tops of the drop handlebars. Well, I was anyway, until the bicycle's rear wheel broke enough spokes to toss the rig away.

Currently, I'm without a bicycle :(

Hi my name is ovoleg, i ride my bike and I drop little girls on tricycles. Don't be shy, say hi to me :)

bmw14 03-24-07 12:48 AM

Hey guys, I am Brian. I just got my first road bike, '06 Specialized Allez Elite, and have been riding now for a few weeks. I live in Irvine so I have only rode around central Irvine and also the back bay. I think I have seen several BF members along the back bay trails, possibly Voltman a couple times. Since I am a noob I am sure I will have plenty of questions, especially about routes in the OC area. I am looking to eventually ride centuries, but for now will concentrate on not falling to the clipped in side. I will post pics of the bike tomorrow after building the 6 dollar bike stand, which I found on another BF post! Hope to see you guys around! Oh and HI ovoleg, I don't drop little kids on tricycles, I draft behind them.

Entropy906 03-24-07 04:51 AM

My name's Mike and I live in east Palmdale. I usually ride Aliso Canyon Road and Mount Emma Road after work. On my "weekends", Monday and Tuesday, I like to head to up to the Angeles Crest near Wrightwood or go the opposite direction towards Gorman.

Welcome to the BF!!

Hello, My name is Dave and I ride mostly in Palos Verdes. I road bike and mountain bike. Mostly do the road riding in PV. Sometimes I hit SM moutains with the moutain bike or ride the hills on the north side of the San Fernando Valley.

This forum has some good info on it. I found it trying to search for stuff on the Mulholland century ride in two weeks, which I'm signed up for.

Welcome to the forums, Dave. :) There is tons of info on here for sure! Good luck on the Mulholland. Have fun out there (challenging fun!).
