Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Riders in Corona, CA

Although I find it fun to ride with Critical Mass in Irvine and Garden Grove, anybody just like to ride bikes around the Corona area? I have noticed more and more bike lanes here, and would like to go further than the cheese factory (off of Lincoln).

btw, I already know about IE critical mass (aka Rancho Cucamonga) and Riverside Cycledelics. I would rather not drive that far. (gas = $4.50/gal)

I ride in Corona. Also planning to do a ride from either Green River or Imperial Highway to the beach and back. I hear people have gotten their cars broken into leaving it at Green River..........so I'll opt for Imperial Highway.

hey man good news for you, around the garden grove area prices of gas are only 4.17 recently, i haven't been to the gas station myself in the past 3 weeks thanks to my bike (pats myself on the back) but thats the kind of pricings I've seen as i triumphantly pass by them on my bike.

Kinda silly, but that's rad. The bike community.
I know a few people from Corona who ride fixed, maybe 5-7 of them, and they rode to the beach and back one day. It's like 35 miles or something right?

Go one better; make it iefixed.com.

(For Inland Empire, of course.)

If you are serious, and can't find anyone, I'll set it up and whatnot. I don't live in the I.E., but I'm close and I like setting up sites. I've also just learned Vanilla, the forum software that all the other *fixed.com forums use (aside of orangecountyfixed.com, but I don't like that software.)

Ok, I have secured the iefixed.com domain name and signed up with a hosting plan. Tomorrow (or maybe over the weekend), after it's all setup, I'll install Vanilla and get it configured. Hopefully by Monday we'll have an Inland Empire Fixed site.
