I am moving up to the Long Beach area in Southern California and I was wondering if anyone on here rode around that area? Ive been riding around there solo but im looking for some people to ride with.

I ride down there from time to time, but I only pass through when doing the ride from downtown LA to San Diego. The other times I would be down there would be when I do the out-and-back from Glendale to Long Beach.

I must admit though - the riding down in that area is pretty abysmal. North of Glendale where I live in La Canada, there are some beautiful mountains going up to Angeles Forest national park. If you take the 605 San Gabriel River Trail north all the way to Duarte, you would hit a nice climb starting at mile 40 and have the options to ride to Crystal Lake or Glendora Mountain Road.

Team Velocity is a great club out of Fullerton. There are Saturday group rides that leave the parking lot next to Hero's Bar & Grill at 7:30 (recreational riders), 7:45 (intermediate riders) and 8:00 (fast group, lots of the guys race). Rides are ~30 miles and venture into La Habra Heights, Diamond Bar, Placentia, Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills.

Ton of good riders in LB/OC. Don't forget about the El Dorado crits on Tuesday night.
