Sup! I ride a 2015 Ducati Monster 821 in Costa Mesa, CA. Soon moving to LA. I used to ride Harleys and my first bike was a Kawasaki Ninja.

My buddy and I recently started a motorcycle sharing company named Riders Share. We make motorcycle rentals a lot more affordable, and we help riders make money. Here to answer questions that may pop up about it!

Hello I'm Albert from Whittier just started road biking. I've been riding from the SGRT to Seal beach/Hunington pier or the opposite way from SGRT to LBC to the LART and connect it to Rio Hondo bike path. Having a blast and enjoying the sport, next I got to do some GMR to Baldy Village! See you on the Road 2 Fun.

I just noticed this thread so... why not.

90% of the time I ride with Mrs. TakingMyTime. Our usual starting off point is on the SGRT near El Dorado Park. Depending on our mood, we'll ride the SGRT South to PCH in Seal Beach and then go to either Bolsa Chica, Huntington Cliffs (Seapoint) or the Huntington Pier and back. Strictly riding for fitness and companionship.

New to this forum and my first post. I started cycling recently back in July when my wife and I decided to sell one of our cars and become a single car family. My current ride is a Trek Domane AL3. I reside in the South Torrance/Walteria area. My main rides are up the coast to Venice Beach and occasionally up through Palos Verdes. I also commute to work by bike Mon-Fri and depending on which office I have to go to it’s either 3 or 15 miles round trip.

Newbie from San Bernardino

I have posted in a couple of threads. It's my dream to do a century. I never could get a bike before, so I went to a bike shop almost drooling. LOL I tried a Cannondale and due to cerebral palsy I just couldn't get it. I was about to completely give up my dream of riding a century when the guy suggested a Giant Sedona DX bike. I was actually able to ride it without falling over. So I put in an order for one. Now I'm looking around and everyone has these high end bikes. Maybe my dream is just that a dream.


I'm planning or hiring a coach maybe that might help. Maybe someday I can ride a real bike like the big boys. I'm trying. I am an ultra runner the farthest I have ran has been 62 miles. The guys at the bike shop stated it was possible for me to ride a century on the Giant. I guess I'm discouraged a little bit. I really seriously want to do this.


Hope I am not being too whiny, I'm going to see about joining a biking club too maybe that will help. Encouragement appreciated.

Bannermkr,

You can do a century on almost anything and don't let anyone tell you any different. You might not come in first place, but you can do it. Start slow and work on the miles according to ability. Then just keep adding miles.

Hi, I am Michelle and live in Orange County, 54 years old. I am an avid cyclist but Feb 9th, 2018, 4 weeks ago today, I was hit by a distracted driver while making a left turn after finishing my ride of 44 miles from the back and went under the car, I should have died but by God's grace, survived. It is very scary and almost lost my life but these forums, FB cyclist friends are so encouraging to get back on when I am recovered. I will follow the stories and the thread to remain encouraged and today I went out to look for my new bike. I am not sure how to add pictures here. But hi! I love hills, love long rides, love growing in cycling and I have always appreciated the wisdom of a long time and advanced riders. I would be considered an intermediate cyclist and ride with advanced but once in a while I would lag behind and I would never care!.

Percy in Ventucky

Hey all,

Percy here, formerly of the PNW. After a year in the Netherlands and a month across EU with Ms. Loretta (that's me bike) I have landed in Ventarky in what the kids call ''The 805''.. In between looking for work and rapid swings between anxiety to carelessness about my future I take Ms. Loretta up on her offer to go carousing. Today we went to Santa Paula in search of historic Victorian homes plus any good reason to have an over priced cold one from the Arco station. I came home feeling like a shaken baby from Santa Paula's subterranean road conditions (what in gods name??), but a nice day spin was had by all. And that's all that matters, aight? Coming home nice and tired with dirt on yr legs and ravenous for food.

I'm interested in rides of all shapes and sizes. If you like it it's gotta be good. I have a truck so can depart from wherever. Love mountain scenes, prefer sealed roads; coastal rides are gorgoues but days off from the wind are nice too. Not real fast but like a steady clip, really just 10-12 mph for a 3-4 hours, stop every now and again for calorie uptake and of course beer (and triple espressos).

DEFEINITELY in search of advocacy groups and civic/civil gatherings. Keeping cyclist-motorist relations on the forefront is key to our one day bein able to share the road.

Enough about me.

Let's ride!

Hello! My name is Aly, and I live in OC. I have been riding since I was 4. I own four bikes, but the one I mostly ride is my Nirve 26 inch Women's beach cruiser (see profile for picture). As I see here, a lot of people ride in competitions and in groups. I ride on trails and around the Yorba Linda, Anaheim and Brea area. I don't ride for a club or anything like that, I ride for the love of bikes and the love of riding!

Ok so I guess this thread needs an occasional bump start

I'm John from the OC. I take the Metrolink and ride any place interesting that it goes. You can get off one stop and ride to another stop and never have to see the same route twice! I've been quite spoiled by this type of riding. On the weekends you can ride anywhere the trains go for $10 and if you have a monthly pass weekends are free.

Hi SoCal-ers (SoCal-ites?), I live in San Diego and mostly ride around Mt Soledad, Torrey Pines, or North County. Every so often I take a trek down to the Great Western Loop and take on Honey Springs.

Are you looking for paths from Seal Beach to those areas? I'm not exactly sure from your question where you plan on riding from and to.

I’m looking for a similar distance paths, which will be located closer to Hollywood and San Fernando Valley.
I tried “orange line bike path”, but there are a lot of traffic lights...
