    Nesdog here....or Sheldon (naw, not THAT Sheldon...sure wish I knew as much as he does though!).

    I live in a fantastic riding area, the Conejo Valley! This is the next valley beyond the SF Valley and is the backside of Malibu.

    Grew up on the Westside and moved our family here 5 years ago. We are lucky to have it all...the SM Mountains for climbs, lots of good bike lanes in the area, bright blue skies. I have a nice 14 mile ride to work if I want it, with showers and an office to store my bike in. I work as a network manager for a private college prep school.

    Favorite ride? Hmm. I really enjoy a run from my house out through Hidden Valley. Lots of ranches and a neat climb out towards Newbury Park. Some of you may remember it from Cruising the Conejo, just past Westlake Village. I make a full loop to Thousand Oaks and knock off about 30 miles by the time I get home. Then again, there is Rock Store 2-1/2 miles of 8% grade. I'm not fast but it's a great thrill to get to the top!

    I ride much of the "Cruising" routes. On various Saturdays, I join a group from Agoura Cycles for a 30-40 mile fun ride. I tried riding with Sundance but they are fairly serious and fast!

    I'm hoping to get close to 3000 miles this year but figure I'll end up around 2800.

    My wife occasionally rides with me. We are shooting for a half metric for her first organized event. Our 11 year old knocked out a 12 mile loop with us in Tahoe this summer. She was jazzed!

    That's it....any questions?

    Pix: Vicki and I rode from Ventura to Rincon and back. Had our picnic on the bluff where CB RS#1 is.
    Pix: Me and the Vick in Mammoth in June.

    Cool. I once drove a Zamboni. Not much for speed but it had an awesome turning radius.

    I am the great Cornholio! I ride on Lake Tittykakka!


    OK, not really. My real name is Ron and I ride in the High Desert - Apple Valley, Victorville, Hesperia, etc. You can go here to check out our local bike club. Here's a few pics of me and my bike:

    This is what happens when you ride in the desert too long.


    Off the front!! Or that might have been off the back.

    A ride from Apple Valley to Big Bear. Fun day!

    HI, I like girls and long walks on the beach. Let me know if you want to ride on the beach, walk on the beach or swim.

    Hi--I'm Bernie, aka bernmart. I live in Pasadena, and have been back to cycling for about sixteen months. I'm a lot older, and vastly slower, especially on hills, than most of you guys. Many of you probably passed me as I gasped my way up East Mountain Drive on the Cool Breeze last week.

    I've been averaging 100+miles per week for the last several months, but I'm starting a new teaching job next week, so I'm gonna be pretty much a weekend warrior. I'm thinking about riding to school some days, though.

    This is a great group, and it's good to have gotten to know some of you electronically, at least, in the runup to the Cool Breeze. Wave as you pass me!

    Hey Everyone. I'm Chris and I live in Highland (which is right next to Redlands...a more recognisable cycling city) and have been cycling for a little over a year. I'm 34 years old and usually ride alone, or with my wife on the weekends.

    I work in the IT industry maintaining the county 911, dispatch, and law enforcement systems. I really like it but I dont like being on call. I also attend the University of Redlands full time.

    My favorite ride is up Devils Canyon. Devils Canyon is what road cycling should be. My wife and I usually ride SART on the weekends. I also spin 2 nights a week with my wife. I'd prefer to ride, but spinning keeps me consistent. I'm also with 15 miles from the 18, 38 (Onyx Summit), and Oak Glen. I live in a climbers paradise.

    On a good week I go about 125 a week and on a bad week a goose egg. I know its sacrelige not to ride for a whole week but certain weeks (class finals, on call) it is hard to put in miles.

    I made a thirty mile rounder of Nisqualli, Hesperia, HWY 18, Corwin, Waalew, Central, Navajo, Bear Valley, and Hesperia again this Sunday afternoon.
    You guys seem to be pretty active in the immediate area, yet I never see any trace of you guys, or any other riders for that matter.
    But, I'm just glad someone else exists out here besides me.
    I was beginning to feel like the "High Plains Drifter" there for awhile.

    Wow, somebody on here who practically lives next door. I think I've only spotted a bent up here 2 or maybe 3 times in all the miles I've ridden in the high desert. Maybe it was you. I ride Corwin and Hwy 18 all the time. You should come on out to a weekend ride sometime. Check out our website, http://vvbc.us, for details.

    Contrary to my screenname, I don't even have recumbent yet, due to low funds.
    Although, my Montague folder should be pretty unique on its own.
    As for the weekend ride, I'll be getting into long-haul trucking this week, so that won't be done here for at least a few months.
    But, that's what the Montague folder and my 24HR fitness membership are for.
    Maybe I should get your jersey so I could represent when I'm in other states.
    I mean, I've only been living here since I was four in 1987.
    I've got the veteran points to prove it!!

    Just discovered this forum and it's neat ! I am pretty much a flatlander with just a hair under 10,000 miles on my Red, White and Blue Madone 5.2. I live in Yorba Linda about 300 yds from the SA river trail which gets most of my rides. Iride with Mr. Beanz and the ever so pretty and gentile Gina every now and again. I have climbed up Green River until it ends in Corona, ridden over Imperial to Irvine and a few of the hills around YL as well as a couple Centuries and tour De Cure etc. I retired early from the Defense Industry In January and now am a high price consultant..... I am thinking about joining the BF ride to MT Baldy but I hate to get up early ...not to mention my minimal climbing experience! I'd post a pic but everything I have exceeds the limit ! Showing my Medone in 100kb would not do her justice. BTW I used to be "Old Newbie" in that OTHER forum!

    I don't work in a muffler shop. I might employ one of you fellas soon, though.

    I'm Paul. I live in Escondido, which is about 8 hours from Flagstaff, AZ or about 30 minutes Northeast of Downtown San Diego. I generally walk out my garage and ride from there to wherever I can get to, then I turn around.

    I'm 31, married with a 3 year old and a 9 day old. (Yep, 9 DAYS!!! Quinn Moffat, b. 8/21/06, 7 lbs, 14 oz. Wife pushed for all of 9 minutes. Can you blee-dat?)

    I forgot what else I was supposed to say about myself.

    edit: OH! My Screenname is a play on my last name: Moffat (pronounced Moffit, but all the ******bags in elementary school called me MO Fat - this is my defense mechanism). My avatar is a banana-hammock-clad Chief Wiggum with his *** out. The 'Scum, Freezebag' wasn't uttered while he was wearing said banana-hammock, but was, by all accounts, the first and last time I nearly dropped dead from laughing and not being able to catch my breath.

    Also, be forewarned: if someone takes me seriously, my first reaction will be to make fun of them some more. I'm sarcastic, and my instincts always lead me toward the dark side of funny.
