Orange County

Looking for group rides to get in with, aside from long beach and garden grove critical mass. (got hassled by some cops, even though we were following the letter of the law) Still going to those, but anything going on that's not on a second or last friday?

what's your level of riding? if you want a slower pace, the bicycle club of irvine and the OC Rebel Riders have different level rides on sat and sun's.

If you want race pace, try the food park and como ride on sat and sun (respectively). All these rides leave out of irvine--well, como is tustin, but close enough. not sure if you're willing to drive that far.

if not, im sure there's a LB bike club. google is your friend.

Not certain where and when you want to ride and if you are looking for a certain type of group. I would check out Orange County Wheelmen, OC Rebels (which sounds like what you want), Bike Club of Irvine, Santiago Cyclery, Sand Canyon Cyclery... there are tons of groups in OC. Many ride during the week as well as weekends. Many have different levels of riding, speed and distance. More information please.

Here's a link that might help...

Why don't you come out and try Bike Club of Irvine's Saturday ride. Start wit the yellow ride and see how you do. It's a fairly social group with strong and fast, weak and slow, mellow riders. You shold be able to find a group to hang with. If you just want to check it out, go tot eh web site bikeirvine.org, check rides. Also think about joining the "newbie" ride the first of every month. It's slow and pokey but gives you an intro to club riding.

Question is how will you get to the start?

Newbie trails to practice fundamentals like jumps, etc.

Hello from OC! I recently got a Trek mountain bike and am new at this. I am curious which trail is the best to learn jumps and fundamentals easily. I recently went to Santiago Oaks and went up Chutes > Cactus > Barham Ridge > Chutes Ridgeline (black diamond) for a crash course and fortunately did not crash but was braking most of the time. Had a great time but was definitely out of my comfort zone.

I would love to get some suggestions on some courses that I can practice fundamentals on such as flowy trails with easy jumps and whatnot. Any advice would be great. I'm located in Irvine so nearby trails is preferred for convenience but not required. Thank you!!

You should probably start a new thread, you'll get more responses. This thread is 15 years old.
