What we're about
I would like to invite other cyclists to join us for some great Cycling Adventures. We really enjoy the outdoors and the adventure of riding on the open road and exploring new areas and enjoying the changing scenery while getting some good cardio, and meeting all the nice people that ride.
This is a Road Bike Club and we mainly ride on the open road and paved Bike Paths. However any non-motorized bike is welcome, that includes Hybrids, Mountain Bikes, Beach Cruisers, Old Bikes, New Bikes, Trikes, etc. More important than the bike is the human motor. If you have the power to maintain a computer average of 12.5 to 14+ mph, and can do anywhere from 15 to 18 mph on the flats, bring it and lets ride!
We are a casual group. I'm a mountain bike shorts and t-shirt kinda guy. I don't wear any fancy uniforms and I don't have any fancy rules. So come as you are and let your 'common sense' prevail. We have a positive "can do" attitude, and always looking for new adventures in various areas. This is a 'fun group' that just likes to get out on the road and ride. It is 'free' to join. So just go ahead and sign up today and start your new adventures now. This is a very public site so I suggest you just use your First Name and Last Initial, and we do need your last initial, or nickname, because there are already to many of the same or similar first names. Do that and let's ride and have some fun. Remember...Life is short. Extend it a little by cycling more. It works. Thanks. Robert
This group is designed for intermediate riders who can maintain a computer average speed of 12.5 to 14 MPH and with speeds on the flats anywhere from 15 to 18 mph and ride 30 to 40 miles mostly on the open road and sometimes with hills. Hills 'are' your friends you know. On occasion we ride out of town, for example Oceanside, San Diego, Santa Monica. Palos Verdes, Tour de Palm Springs in Feb., Santa Barbara, and other great spots, and so then we might go 50 to 60 miles or more. There are usually shortcuts if you want to do less. We are explorers and like the adventure of riding into new territory. I will try to find new rides every week. So come on out and explore and have some great fun riding with us. It will do your heart good. Literally! So let's Rock the Road! Wahooo!!!
Quest for Hills:
One of our quests is to climb every major hill in Orange County as listed in the OCTA Orange County Bikeways Guide. There are 28 hills listed with inclines from 5% for Jeronimo Road and up to 10.7% for Ridge Park Road. Join me in conquering every one of those 'little hills', and more. One, two, or more hills at a time. Are you ready? Come on over!!! Wahoooo!!!!
