I've updated this Meetup to add Janet as my co-lead. She will offer a slightly slower pace and an alternate route that avoids the climbs altogether. We will be riding together for the first 23 miles.
For more details, see the full listing:
When: Saturday, October 29,[masked]:45 AM
Where: West Coast Bagel Co.

WELCOME TO GROUP CYCLING!
Butts on Bikes Inland Empire (BOBie's) cycling group is based in Southern California 's beautiful Inland Empire. We are road cycling enthusiasts* who enjoy local and remote bicycle rides that are both fun and challenging. Our group is a blend of casual to intermediate riders, riding for fitness, fun, friendship, food (sometimes), and personal improvement.
<------- Ready for the San Antonio/Padua Climb!
*Enthusiasts: not a club, team, training clinic, or racers. Road bikes including tandems & recumbents are welcome.
Park to Park Tour!------->
Our rides are quite varied and are typically 20-70 miles in distance, with the occasional 80-100 mile rides.
Heading out to Carbon Canyon ! ------->
We typically ride from Chino or Chino Hills, but also neighboring areas such as the foothill communities of Claremont, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, as well as Diamond Bar, Riverside, San Dimas, La Verne, Glendora, Covina, Duarte, Monrovia, to name a few.
Our REMOTE RIDES take us out to areas such as Irvine , Laguna Beach , Newport Beach , and south to Oceanside/San Diego.
<--------We also offer a paceline drill during the long days of the year (Thursdays @ 6p.m.)
Here is a quick shortlist of some of our RIDES/TRAINING DRILLS:

MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM!
View our dedicated leadership team here: http://www.meetup.com/ButtsOnBikes-InlandEmpire/members/?op=leaders
Our BOBie cycling group is led with a passion for cycling and the enjoyment of sharing it with others. We encourage our members to not only participate in the rides, but take an interest in helping us build our group by hosting or leading rides. Let us know if you are interested in joining our leadership team.
Keith, having shed 100lbs in 2007, keeps himself in shape with his passion for cycling. He constantly challenges himself as well as anyone else who cares to join him. He enjoys good long & fast-paced rides, climbs, and sharing his knowledge with others. Keith is thankful for those who have reached out to mentor him.
Janet, shed 55lbs in 2007. She severely injured her back at home that same year. Janet's recovery involved the healing effects of cycling and aquatics fitness. Recovering from back surgery in the summer of 2011 sidelined Janet's love of cycling for awhile.
As of October 2011, Janet is back to enjoying ride route exploration, mid-week morning rides, leading moderate rides up to 40 miles, and creating and nuturing wonderful cycling friendships, and growing this exciting cycling group.
Keith and Janet rode over 150 miles in Holland, Netherlands where their love for cycling was ignited. They embrace those cyclists who have also fallen in love with the feel of the open road, wind in the face, sun over their shoulders, and smiles that just won’t fade.
