    Hello ALL,
    My name is John and I live in Carlsbad, I recently caught the bike bug, it was a big bite. I just purchased my first road bike. The Scott CR1 Comp 2010. So far so good, I really enjoy how light this bike is. I would really like to find some riders to bike with that live in Carlsbad area. I am planning on biking across the U.S. in April-May. My plan is to complete the journey in 45 days averaging 60-75 miles/day. I have been riding 30-35 miles about 4 days a week since I started last month. I would like to plan a trip up to san Clemente through camp pendelton some time soon...

    Cheers!
    John

    Hi everyone. My name is Mike. I am from Redlands, CA My wife and I bought bikes about a year and a half ago. She had a hybrid bike and started riding to the beach on the SART with people from work. She decided that she needed a more effcient bike to do the ride and bought a nice Cannondale rode bike, not real top end but decent. I had always wanted to get into biking so I inherited the Hybrid and we started riding together. After a short time I bought a road bike. We ride mostly in the Redlands area, Greenspot road, or loop around through MEntone , upto Redlands Hopital etc. We have also done Yucicipa, San Timoteo Canyon and Loma Linda. And of course when we can we will do the SART, upto Huntington Beach. And go for a beer at HB Brewing Company.

    We did the ElTour de Tuscon last year, 66 mile, and plan on returning this year for the 80 mile. We toured Sonoma on our bikes last April.

    My wife and I have different riding styles. I tend to ride faster, am less nervous in traffic and boot it down hills think I worked like heck to get up here, I am going to take advantage on the way down.

    We have never ridden with any of the group rides we see people doing on Saturday and Sunday mornings around Redlands but thought that would be fun. If anyone is in one of those groups that is not too fast, I am sure we would like to ride with you some day.

    Hello all, I just made my introduction post in the the other section, just wanted to post here as well. I ride, well I just started riding, but I ride both mtn. as well as road. A friend got me into mountain biking, but we typically only go once a month, I decided to take up road riding as well to build up my legs and lungs, and for the sheer fitness factor. I live in Rancho Cucamonga, and as soon as I get my legs on board with my head, I'll be looking forward to going for a ride with some of you.

    Thanks!! Yeah we shot that with the 7D Cannon. Great camera for most of it. Careful though, you can get some warping with the shot if the subject comes in to fast to the screen. Sort of strange.

    Feel free to repost and share the video for sure!!! Trying to get 100,000 hits. Think ya'll can help? I'll have another video out soon!!!

    Cool, I knew it. I got the 7D last year and have been using it for rock climbing videos and now plan on trying to do some cycling vids with it to. The warping you see is called aliasing.

    I'm from Walnut, 909 area code. For those who don't know where it is...it's a small city in the area were the 57 and 60 freeways meet.

    I've been riding mountain bikes for many years. I have a GT Zaskar Team. Mine was made in the USA , prior to GT being purchased by Schwinn, who then was purchased by Huffy.

    Prior to the GT, I bought my dream mountain bike an Intense Tracer. I still have bought bikes. I usually mountain bike in Brea: Carbon Canyon.

    On my birthday, Sept 8th, I bought myself a gift, my first road bike, a 2010 Specialized Langster, a single speed/fixie. I took it for its maiden ride today. For now, wherever I ride, the road has to be flat, until my legs get strong.

    I'll clean up the mountain bikes, line them up with the Langster, then take pictures to share with everyone. It's great to be here!

    hey guys .. im brand new on here .. newb ... ive been riding my whole life ... but im just getting into road bikes. this will be my very 1st road bike ive ever owned. im buying a trek 1.2 WSD ... as soon as i get it im sure ill get some pics and post em on here. main reason i wanted to get into the whole road biking is because i want to start commuting to work by a bike and honestly a road bike seems the way to go, plus it gives me a reason to buy a road bike. ive always been attracted to them, and envied every1 that rode them. so im super excided to be getting one myself finally. theres alot of bike clubs around here. im not sure how they all work, but i would eventually like to ride for cause.
    7593584_300..jpg bike i will be purchasing tomorrow ... yaay, cant wait

    Hi, everyone, Until New Years Day of this year, my previous riding consisted of 3 quick trips in 1985 on a red Trek 850 I purchased that year. So I hauled it out of the garage on a cold January morning and joined 3 women on a 22-mile road ride. It was fun and exhausting. At the end of the ride, I remarked on how effortless their riding appeared. One of them offered to let me take a spin on her road bike - WOW. I couldn't believe it was so light and smooth.

    I tried one more ride on the 850 before I went to the LBS and bought a Trek 1.5 which I love. The picture is me on that bike at the Tour de Palm Springs in mid Feb of this year. I ride throughout the Inland Empire, primarily on weekends, and keep working on getting up Baldy to Shinn Road with a bit more ease, grace and less panting.
