    Hi,

    I'm in Rialto. I returning to bike riding by eagerly awaiting my new recumbent trike Sun X-3 AX. I can pickup it up from my LBS next Saturday. Here's a pic: http://www.sunbicyclesnashville.com/trikes.php mine is the blue one. Yes, it was expensive - at least for me, but I want to get back to riding. Two years I was riding a Burley Canto recumbent and broke my ankle riding it - a mossy puddle and I had a disagreement - the puddle won! So I got back on the Burley but I never trusted it again. So I stopped riding.

    A month ago I started to exercise my two dogs - a german shephard and a catahoula leopard - while I rode my mom's adult tricycle (Miami sun). I put a harness and a leash on them and they run/trot beside me. It gets them tired. So I found I missed my bike riding. I talked to my LBS and they are going to sell my Burley for me and I ordered the Sun.

    I plan to ride to a from work (Rialto to San Bernardino) on a daily basis. I did this for two years on a Trek hybrid then a few months on the Burley after my accident. I enjoy riding. I need the exercise and a way to relax after work, so when I get home, I'm a happy person.

    I plan, once I get back into riding and get used to the mileage, to go out with the local bike clubs with their slow group. I enjoyed doing that.

    Christy

    One of those old guys

    Hi All
    New to BF but not to cycling. I ride in the IE for the most part, but will ride to work on Orange on occasion. For most of the last 10 years I have been on a Mountain bike, but last spring I got a new road bike and remembered how much fun going fast can be. I put on about 6900 miles in the last year. Rode Stagecoach, Palm Springs, Solvang, and a good portion of the Tour De California route. If you see me on the road I am the guy with the big grin ( that is not a grimace). On most Sunday mornings I ride with the Riverside Bike club. come and join with us for a good ride.

    Mark I met you at the 3 club ride and I still think someone welded that frame together without plans.

    Hey there! I'm a high desert dweller, too! I live in Victorville. What are the safe places to ride? I started riding in San Jose, and got used to the bike-friendly environment. I get back home, and I'm nearly killed a dozen times! Are there any long stretches where we won't get clobbered by a car?

    Hey All
    My name is John, I ride the SART everyday to work. I start in Yorba Linda and get off at Westminster Blvd, then west all the way to Golden West Ave. I ride a beater mountain bike with hybrid tires. I wear Team Velo Sport or Sho Air gear. I also do club rides on the weekends, Como St is one of my favorite rides. Hope you see you out there.

    Been a lurking on the boards for a while, but never really post.

    I live in Laguna Niguel, and you can usually find me riding the coast up to Newport/Long Beach or down to San Clemente/Pendleton area starting from the DP harbor. I occasionally go into Irvine, laguna hills, santa margarita. Always looking for new spots.

    New to Forum

    Have been a lurker here for a couple weeks as I'm trying to do some research on a new bike.

    I just completed the LA River Century this weekend (my first century!), but I do most of my riding on the SGRT. Mainly ride solo or with a couple friends because I'm terrified that I would be the one to cause a crash in a large group of riders!

    If anyone likes early morning rides (like 5:30 or 6am) near Monrovia, Duarte, let me know!

    Hey My Name is Chris. I ride motorcycles and play rugby for the University of San Diego. I recently bought a single speed/ fixed gear road bike and I have fallen in love with riding. I usually ride around the Rose Bowl and I hope to do some night rides in the city.
    I'm from Glendale.
    Thanks,
    -Chris

    Riding again...

    Hello All... I'm Michael and I'm 4-weeks into my return to cycling after a looong hiatus (~10 years). I'm primarily riding a Scattante CFR Elite around San Diego Bay / Silver Strand and riding my Trek 9200 MTB at Mission Trails Park.

    I'll be doing the 25 Mile Bike The Bay ride on 8/30/09 and have set a goal of riding the 62 Mile (Metric Century) RTC Viva Bike Vegas on 10/10/09. Of course if I progress fast enough I might go for the 118 Mile course but that's probably a bit ambitious at the moment. Considering my layoff, if I finish in the upper half of the riders I'll be pretty happy with myself.

    Looking forward to meeting some of you other riders out on the trails...

    Getting ready to ride...


    The Scattante's...

    Oh no! A full disc would weigh too much so I paid extra for the lighter weight mini-disc.

    Well thanks for the welcome! I'm hoping to hang around these boards for some time to come since I've already started to learn quite a bit.

    Hi Everybody! I live in San Diego, Mira mesa to be exact. I bike to work mostly on my Miyata 1000 and Dahon Speed P8. I want to be able to do a half century or metric century for the Tour de Poway. Training up for that right now.

    I love riding around mira mesa for all my small trips like visiting friends, getting dinner or running errands. It's fun to see how long I can go without getting in my car .
