    OC routes

    I would love to hear more about your routes in OC. I just moved down from SF and I'm having trouble finding the windy, tree-lined roads of the Bay Area. Most of my rides around here have been riddled with cars and congestion. Any suggestions you have would be great.

    Finally, what is your bike shop of choice in these parts?

    Welcome to OC and Bike Forums!

    Was there a particular type of ride you were looking for? Flat? Hilly?

    I'm a fan of Rock 'n Road Cyclery.

    hi. my name is luis. i've been riding fixed for a couple years now and have been posting on lafixed since september.

    i've been "running" but not really, the long beach crtical mass since octoberish, i thinks and have started a ride out of whittier (and roving 562 locations) called (5fix2).

    5fix2 is first monday of each month: medium fast 30 mile ride and the remaining mondays of the month are social, pace slow-medium, about 15 miles long, and we take a vote to make it an outright booze cruise.

    about 1 sunday a month we do a roving location daytime start thang. may's ride is may 25, 11am, starting at mimo's in uptown whittier, riding to santa fe damn, bbq, swim, and ride back.

    me:

    Dan from Redlands

    Hey everyone, I've been mountain biking on and off for a few years, and just purchased my first recumbent. It's a KMX Typhoon trike. I recently discovered the SART that goes all the way out to San Bernardino and will be riding that regularly. Normally I'm out on my motorcycle on weekends, but figured I should probably get into better shape and get some exercise again. So if anyone's local or interested in riding, let me know!! See ya!

    I am Nerdanel and I live in and ride (mostly) in the San Fernando Valley. I commuted to work (via Red Line) pretty regularly through April, but I'm an academic and don't have to commute at all over the summer. I have a comfy Giant hybrid bike and, having read a bunch of threads defining the term, I guess I'm a Fred or, I guess, a Doris. You be the judge:

    Hi Richard Welcome...

    You live sort of borderline between Northern and Southern Cal. You might try asking on the Northern Cal subforum, too.
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

    Hi All
    I'm John, I live in Yorba Linda, I commute to Westminster everyday, I ride the Santa River trail from Yorba Linda Blvd to 17th street Santa Ana then across to Golden West. I do a killer training ride every Saturday morning. This ride starts at Noel Ranch and Santa Canyon road. It goes through Orange, Tustin, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Live Oak Canyon, Santiago Canyon, Silverado Canyon, then back to Orange. I do Como Street or race on Sundays.
    Ride unil you drop....John

    Hi all,

    I'm Carlos. I've been riding a road bike mostly seriously for 35 years with a couple of 3 year breaks, first time due to a knee injury and then as a newly wed. Good thing is my wife quickly picked up cycling (no coaxing on my part) and now is my most regular cycling partner. My oldest son, 23 years old, is also a roadie and actually races. I have 16 year old twins (boy+girl). Girl rides a beach cruiser and Boy was hit by a car that ran a stop sign two weeks ago, while riding his mountain bike. He's okay, though his bike is a complete loss with a broken fork, crumpled frame, bent wheels, broken skewer, etc. You know what? The Giros helmet my oldest son got him the week before saved his life... that thing is broken where the car hit him and where he hit the pavement.

    I have a numerous extended family of roadies, some do triathlons and many are marathoners, so its easy to get a group together. Mostly we ride north along the L.A. river (Lario Trail), then along Rio Hondo. Sometimes when we're feeling brave we continue north until the dam and head east for a couple of miles until we join the San Gabriel river, which we ride south to P.C.H., then head north along the beach bike path and finally join the L.A. river again to complete a 52 mile loop. On rare occasions we extend that ride to 70 miles. A few times a year we do charity rides, our favorites are the Solvang Prelude, Solvang Century, and Tour de Palm Springs. This year we did the Tour de Sewer. When I was much younger I did crazy things like the Davis Double and once I rode from Canada to Long Beach.

    My usual ride is a '05 Jamis Eclipse, a combination carbon/Reynolds with mid-range Campy. I like it because it's very comfortable for centuries and very stylish traditional frame but good enough for fast group rides... and maybe even local crits? I'll know at the end of this month, my first race since college. I also own an '85 De Rosa (Campy SR) which I kinda ride every once in a rare while, a vintage '85 Trek (very clean, original paint in very good condition and Campy SR) which I plan on selling soon (anyone interested?), and another couple of vintage bikes in process of being restored.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's better to have raced and lost, than never to have raced at all

    My name's Ryon (pronounced however you want). I am currently graduating from UC Irvine and I do the group rides with the cycling team here at UCI. My favorite is como, by far. During the week I ride combinations of backbay, PCH, and the hills around newport coast (newport coast drive, pelican coast, vista ridge, ridge park, etc...) This is what I look like on a bike, pulling, and hurting haha:



    I'm a big guy, so people like my wheel. I'll be moving to the UCSD area in a few weeks for work, so I'll be looking to meet up with new people to ride (and have Tour de France parties). I'm looking to start the Swami's ride, and also training for the camp pendleton olympic distance triathlon on July 19th. If you want to ride, let me know!

    hi, i'm nicole. new here. and relatively new to california. last june i moved from the midwest out to the LA area for a job and i'm loving it.

    i ride road, mountain (although not as much since moving out here) and i commute most of the time on my bike. my haul is from hermosa beach into east torrance/carson - about 8 miles, one-way. i do it on a marin larkspur, which is great for the commute because i can carry all my crap on it, the tires/wheels are great for the crap roads i ride on, and it's reasonably light so it doesn't slow me down too much.

    people at work like to laugh when i walk in wearing padded, spandex shorts.

    anyway, i do most of my riding around the south bay area of LA, so if anyone is around these parts, hello to you!
