    Hi from Irvine! I used to be quite active in the old socal forums for trail riders :). Fell out of touch with riding buddies, got busy with life, then just re-entered the mtb world about 2 years ago. Lifetime clyde, but no longer a super clyde (down from 285 to 225 in the last 18 months). Usually ride Peters Canyon, Whiting Ranch, or Aliso Woods depending on how much time I have for lunch :).

    You'll remember me by the rice rocket with a 1up hitch and a Devinci Troy or Yeti 575 or Orbea Alma + Lefty conversion. Say hi if you see me on the trails!

    Welcome (back)!! You'll find that this is a much better location than the other one. :whistling:

    Check out the "Trailhead" page and jump in on the Santa Ana rides/death marches any given week. Or any other stuff you can get to.

    Ride lots, write lots about riding lots. See you on the dirt.:cool:

    Hey @stevers !
    Hey congrats on the jettison of extra cargo! Makes climbing a whole lot more pleasant, eh?

    We do have a lot of fun here, and @herzalot is very correct about not having an Avatar, especially a "Question Mark" Avatar! o_O
    I mean California can have all it's questionable genders, I still can only come up with. . . . . 2. :rolleyes:

    Get an Avatar before you become the next contestant on A.V.A.T.A.R.!

    Great.....another Steve. Between Steve's and Mike's.....you guys could have your own sub forum. :cautious:

    I'm in Orange, but only ride a few of the places you mentioned.

    We have all kinds of flavors here.....surely you will find one or more that fits.

    All we ask is that you participate......ride lots, post lots. Lurking is not allowed.

    Welp, avatar added! I don't have a ton of photos of myself biking, so a mugshot will do for now.

    Refreshing! So many members put up these tiny shots that show them riding. Like they have to show off or get some form of peer approval. Like RUN DMC are watching you ride your badass DH bike in a race or something. Sheeesh! ;):cool::oops:

    Part of my growing years took place in Tujunga, CA. A location affectionately known to the County's law enforcement as "the armpit of Southern California".

    I always thought the armpit was Fresno.
    Anyway, body part is a body part! :cautious:

    Yes, armpit is most of the San Joaquin Valley.

    Anus is Sacramento.

    Left nostril would be LA County.

    I recognize a couple screennames, like @Danimal and @herzalot . Probably bought some stuff off y'alls in the past.

    I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, and that was also the armpit of socal. I think it's just stinkin' hot in a lot of places, which is why I live in Irvine now :). Spent last week in Lemoore and didn't expect that kind of heat.

    Nostrils aren't so bad. I figured you would be thinking my county was a hernia or something lesser like that.
