Well that's what San Diego is known for If it wasn't this nice I'd move somewhere with a less oppressive legislature! I'd love to live somewhere close to the snow for one winter though. But I can't complain about moderate year round temps.

In the summer I bike more often, I usually only do 500km (310miles) of a driving a month in the summer. Biking to work every day sure helps keep my stamina up for the winter

Winter starts later here in SoCal so it'll be a while unless I can swing a trip somewhere after my wedding in October.

I got a brand new Evo waiting in the wings (ok I don't have it yet but it's preordered). This is one of my longest summers

Biking sure does save gas money. but doesnt beat riding on a just opened park run.

i bought a blinged out ktm xcf250 couple months ago for some offroad fun this summer. Even though i grew up riding trail bikes.. i just couldnt get into it. So i sold that badass bike last week. All i wanna do is snowboard 24/7/365 .. no other sport comes even close. If you cant understand where im comin from then thats too bad. Ya its along long summer. I pass the time by training, bought some goretex pants couple days ago
