What level cyclist are you?

I am a fast touring pace rider.

What kind of bike do you ride? (road/hybrid/race/mountain)?

Old Centurian Dave Scott Ironman.

What was your longest ride?

I did 3 double century rides back when I was a member of the Los Angeles Wheelman in the 70's. My best time was just under 12 hours.

Where do you usually ride your bike?

Up and down the coastline from Long Beach.

Do you have any goals that have inspired you to join our cycling club?

To bring my riding skills back up to at least 80% of the good old days and socialize and network with other bicyclists. More endurance and spin better. Not be so slow on hills.


Hi. Love bikes, music and people.

What Ben K. is saying about this Meetup Group

A very congenial group of riders. I impressed myself by being able to keep up with the group. I shall return for more.

    Hi Ben,
    You may remember me from the few times we jammed together, the last time being Don's birthday party in Bellflower a couple of months ago. I just discovered all of this meetup goodness and will be attending some gatherings starting this week. Hope to see you at one of these sessions soon!
