I started cycling again in 2013 after a 2 decade long hiatus from mountain biking. Buying a road bike in 2013 was my reward for losing 80lbs and hitting my goal weight. I currently spend most of my time on the road bike (daily commutes and group rides) but am working my way back into the dirt after an amazing time at the 2018 Belgian Waffle Ride.
If you want to nerd out while riding your bike in Southern California, Wes Salmon is your man! Wes is the kind of guy who has multiple head units strapped on his bars because he's testing beta software for Garmin or Wahoo or whoever - you know, DCRainmaker or GPLama style. He works at Zwift and will be more than happy to chat with you about how homemade rockerplates and smart headwind fans :) Of course, he checks all the normal "great guide" boxes too: friendly, good at bikes, knows the roads, etc... but tours with are really not to be missed if you're an indoor training or cycling-tech enthusaist!
It was a pleasure to ride with Wes on his first official VeloGuide ride as support for Phil. He was super friendly and played a pivotal role as he dropped back whenever someone was falling off the pace. I’m looking forward to riding with him again but in Huntington Hills!
