I joined VB last month for the same reasons many of you have already mentioned. I have been riding for about 5 years, done some triathlons and raced sea otter in the beg XC division this year. I am looking to ride with some other gals and elevate my riding to the next level.
Since the SoCal Chapter is really the San Diego chapter, I have decided to try to start a new chapter in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. It has been slow going so far but I know it will take time for the word to spread. In the meantime, I mostly ride by myself or with my husband.
If any of you gals know girl riders that live in OC/LA area or the Inland Empire or even Ventura County, send them my way!
