Steve Stuart

 

How I got started riding: Discovered I could ride to the beach on my Peugot from home, (25 miles), when I was in high school.  Never stopped.

Why I love to ride:  Great scenery, nice people, good workout, and great smells from the bakeries and Mexican restaurants you pass.  You see so much more on a bike than in a car.  

Bikes that I have: Vintage Colnago, Giant Carbon, Trek 720 touring, Ritchey breakaway cyclo cross, Giant Anthem, Bike Friday Llama. Vintage Schwinn World Traveler....(Yep, I have the disease). 

Favorite bike racing idol?:  Eddie Merckx  and the guy that pulled me back into the pack when I was dropped. 

Favorite ride(s): San Fransisco to S.D., C&O canal., Switzerland,...oh you mean local? De Luz, Couser Cyn., Cleveland Natl. forest. the coast....

My future goals:   Keep pedaling, do lots of bike touring,  and don't let life get in the way of enjoying it.                            

Strava.com profile?: say what?

Outside of cycling interests?: Family, outrigger canoeing, backpacking, ocean swimming, body surfing.

Interesting stories/facts about me?: I started  mountain biking in the Santa Monica  mountains on a Schwinn 5 speed around 1981.   Nobody knew what to think of us back then and none of the trails were closed to bicycles. 33 years of mt. biking and I still suck at it, but I have lots of fun.

Notable Achievements & Results?:I occasionally ride with the Celo Pacific riders on Saturday and sometimes even avoid getting dropped:) I'm a sport rider and a supporting member.

I joined your club because A: You are the local club and I wanted to support cycling and B: Your members are always been friendly to me even though I am not a racer. 

My wife and I are hosts for Warmshowers.org,  a cycle tourist hosting organization and we meet so many amazing people who have pedaled, literally, all over the world. We encourage others to look into being hosts. You get so much more out of it than you put in.
