    Check out this website:

    http://www.outdoorsclub.org/

    They have fun rides, mtb rides, tours, etc in the OC area.

    Seems like a fun group. I'll be taking my first ride with them--an overnight tour-- later this month.

    if you're looking for road clubs here's a couple:

    http://www.bikeirvine.org
    http://www.ocrebels.com/
    http://www.ocw.org

    I've ridden with all three groups and they are all good people and good groups for riding. On weekend rides they have routes for all levels. Send me a message when you think you're going to go and maybe we can meet up.

    I have been looking for a group to ride with. I have been investigating different clubs in Irvine. Can anyone give me an opinion on any of these clubs.

    Velo Sports
    Met Rx
    Simple Green
    Radsports
    Monex
    Canyon Veloce
    BCI
    Orange County Wheelmen
    Paramount Racing

    Pros and cons welcome!

    Hello Jet,
    I live in SoCal and ride every Saturday and Sunday, sometimes during the week, I can't comment on the Clubs you mentioned but I should imagine they're great....

    I ride either with friends, or alone, but always seem to meet fellow Riders when I'm by myself and most of them seem friendly and willing to pass the time of day...I always think it's safer to ride in at least a small group...we're more visible to Traffic then... :(

    I often do the Backbay, which is very close to Irvine...then off up the PCH to Seal Beach and back, or during Holiday weekends when the Beach roads are just too dangerous, a couple of laps of the Backbay and off up the new trail which ends at Barranca and Jeffrey..80% Traffic free and 35 miles....or whatever takes my fancy that Day...

    So if you, or any other road bikers in the area fancy hooking up for a ride just let me know...
