Hello from Southern California

Hello to my fellow cyclists out there.

I'm a 20 year old guy that lost his job a few months ago and has to resort to riding a bike to school and back...10 miles one way.
Ran out of money to pay for gas for my car and will ride my cheap 90's Taiwanese-made Schwinn.
Yay, for fitness, but can't give my girlfriend car rides anymore...

Welcome to Bike Forums. There's nothing wrong with commuting to school - think of the money you're saving on gas!

Check out the Southern California regional forum - there are lots of SoCal riders here.

Hello Treath and WELCOME ! You'll get over it so will she. Besides, those Asian built Schwinns are OK, I ride one sometimes, a female specific model for when I'm sore
