Lady shmady...

All I asked (very innocently, mind you) was whether this nice gentleman would consent to hosting an informative and educational bicycle-related gathering, attended by numerous well-mannered and nicely groomed men and women... all on your behalf.

Then you get all Jerry Springer on me and fly off the handle. Wimmin!

Yeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh....that's all you were trying to do. Well-mannered, huh? This man will be on this forum for all of two hours, and he'll see right through that!

Hello all: Jeff here. Live in the South Bay -- mainly ride PV and surrounding areas solo -- looking to change the solo aspect on occasion. Ride a Scattante SCR (purchased from Supergo prior to ending of this model), also own an old steel Specialized Allez and a Cervelo P2K.

Have 4 kids I'm trying to keep up with in my older-but-not-yet-grown-up age.

Ok, got it figured but appears I need to be a fancy red star member to get more space for the avatar....hmmm, is it worth $25 for 30 years?

Well, the reference was to my fridge, not my ummmm, unit And I'd never refer to my unit as a fridge as that would imply it was all chilly and cold...and that would be just a plain old fib

Well, ya just never know! As I get to know peeps, I may indeed extend some invites. The Ribfest is usually between 40 and 80 people, depending on where it's being hosted that year, how many folks they can accomodate, how many can make it on the proposed date, etc...etc...etc...

Wow, I figured that would be something to be proud of here. I know I'd be. Hmmm, maybe I should host one. I like parties.

Hello~

I am Joe (Won-Jin). I just moved back to Southern California from Korea, saw the raging gas prices (allbeit they are much much cheaper than Korea) and decided I would rather get into biking. I am in the Riverside Area, specifically UCR as I am a student. If you see a newbie looking rider near UCR toppling over cause he forgot to flick his heel out, give a shout.

- Joe

Welcome to the forums, Joe! And welcome back to Southern CA - although, yes, you came back at the worst time for gas prices!

Sup all, wanted to poke my head in here and check it out. Just started riding, about 2 months ago on my mountain bike. Threw some slicks on it and away I went. Been mostly cruising through Huntington Beach. I am currently shopping for a road bike....which I hope to soon have. Hope to see some of you out there.

Hello all,

Name is Ken. I've been reading this forum for a short while and decided to join in on the fun. I'm located in north county San Diego and have been riding since 2000 when I bought a Specialized Allez.

Here is an old pic of me from the Tour de Palm Springs:

My mileage has been off lately but I somehow managed to do the Cool Breeze century the past two years. I'm signed up again this year with a goal of having a decent amount of fitness by August.

The Specialized was a good bike but it fell victim to bike lust when I started ramping up the miles this spring. I'm now on the carbon bandwagon:

So, what happens now?

Welcome, Ken! Nice pics. What happens now? Come join on a ride. This Sunday is the LA River Ride if that would interest you, and I believe quite a group of BFers are joining.

Hey guys (and ladies),

The name is Jason, i'm in Temple City -- first post here but i've been lurking quite a bit just trying to do my research and all that good stuff...relatively new to the Road Bike scene coming from a MTB background.

I usually ride with my mom/dad/sister along the SGRT off of Encanto Pkwy (was actually there this past Sunday to take my mom out on her new Trek Navigator) just to cruise around but a few months ago I started to see more and more road bikes and they really peaked my interest. So after scouring the information superhighway I landed here and i've found more than a fill of helpful information. Of course I started out wanting an entry level bike but quickly caught the bug and looked towards something a little nicer to motivate me to stay with the sport.

I pick up my Scott CR1 on Wednesday, which is my first ever road bike and haven't been this excited for something in a very very long time. Hopefully I can get out and go on some of these group rides that i've been reading about--would really like to meet you guys and make some new friends.

Thanks!
