    Clubs / Rides / Teams in Monterey / Seaside area?

    Not sure if Monterey counts as NorCal or SoCal, but I'm moving to Seaside this August for school (CSU Monterey).

    Any BikeForum locals that can tell me about all the best local rides, clubs, teams, and shops?

    Which "border" are we referring to? I split a map of CA in half and technically it is in the lower half.

    We repudiate Monterrey.

    I honestly don't know where SoCal turns into NorCal but I reckon it's between Bakersfield and Fresno. Your map logic is not helped by the fact that there's nothing north of say, Healdsburg.

    Monterey is considered "central coast". Monterrey (note spelling) is in Mexico.

    So where do you guys consider yourselves? North or South?

    Monterey was flagged by my spell check, go figure.

    Sure, I get that. But that doesn't help when theres only NorCal and SoCal regional forums!

    Central. But if we had to choose from ONLY North or South - it'd DEFINITELY be North.

    Isn't Monterey about an hour south of San Jose? I'd definitely consider that NorCal.

    Please. It snot even close. Monterey is right in the thick of NoCal. If you want a definition point, its where the ocean turns warm south of Point Conception. Beaches and sunshine to the south, trees and granola to the north.
