You can help support Cycling in the South Bay with a modest donation.

In this case, “modest” means $2.99 per month.

Blog posts come out daily except when they don’t. Your donation does a lot more than help me buy beer and the occasional spare tube. It makes me feel like what I’m doing has value. It communicates respect and it creates self-respect. Of course, the same thing could be said — and will be said — for readers who take the time to comment and engage in dialogue. The only difference, perhaps, is that I haven’t yet figured out a way to swap comments for beer.

But I’m working on it.

Here’s the link if you’re feeling generous, and in any event thanks for stopping by.

    Hey do you know of any junior cycling programs near Rolling Hills Estates, CA?

      The best junior cycling program in the US is on the track at the Velo Sports Center in Carson, through Connie Cycling. Numerous of her riders have gone on to successful road careers.

    “The Los Angeles Sheriffs Department has embarked on a methodical campaign of illegal ticketing, threats, and intimidation against law-abiding cyclists who dare to exercise their right to ride in the lane on Pacific Coast Highway.”

    Just curious…Are these the same “law-abiding cyclists” seen on your Youtube videos regularly blowing stoplights and nearly clipping pedestrians at speed? And regarding you and group using the entire lane on PCH… so you’re essentially averaging 20-25 MPH on a roadway with a posted limit significantly higher than that and turning either the Northbound or Southbound route(depending which way you’re riding) for vehicular commerce and residents essentially to one lane. Just so you can get a workout in. Wow.

    I too am an avid road cyclist but in my mid-fifties. Still a strong cyclist but off the pace that you guys keep. My rides are mainly on the same PV peninsula you regularly ride and I average about 100 miles a week. Yep, I agree with you…lots of asshat drivers that despise cyclists out there. And plenty of negligent and risk-taking cyclists, too. I don’t ride in the gutter or debris field but keep to my right. If I’m not anywhere in the remote vicinity of the posted speed limit of 35-45MPH (or more), why should I occupy the lane? I’d be pissed if a car was doing 10-30 MPH under the posted limit and I was behind it in my car. The signs up PV Dr. East state, “share the road.” I do. If I’m riding with buddies, we single file it and only overtake one another when it’s safe. We pay heed to stop signs and red lights. Nice blog, BTW. My wife and I witnessed the Ronnie Toth accident at the MBGP last weekend and will donate.

    In order to make a better case to the drivers of the world, we cyclists need to be a good example as well.
