When I was in So Cal. I rode a jekyll and a Giant VT1. Laguna Coast was my spot of choice. Brutal climbs, but worth it. We actually have mountain riding here, and a couple places with lifts. Arkansas is just a few hours away and AMAZING.
I lurk a lot on here now days. I recently switched to third shift at work, so I have not been as active over the past several months. I still jump on about every two or three days. But traffic here has slowed quite bit.
I suspected everyone was just out ridding.
