Orange County, CA (PRWEB) February 4, 2006
The 3F Bicycling Club, based in Orange County, California, has announced the official launch of their new website.
Club founder, Mark Warrick, an avid mountain biker who has been riding his entire life, spent over a year planning the website and making sure he had a first-hand account of all the best mountain biking trails in Orange County.
"In August, 2004 I purchased a book written by Randy Vogel and Larry Kuechlin, 'Mountain Biking Orange County California' (ISBN: 1575400111) which is considered around here to be the ultimate mountain biking guide printed. I set a goal for myself to ride every trail in the book. A year and a half later, I can say now that I've ridden all but the hardest trails several times. (The hardest trails traverse the entire Santa Ana Mountain Range.)", says Mark Warrick.
The 3F Bicycling Club was formed to fill a gap between beginner riders and experts. Their policy of "Nobody Gets Left Behind" is one that many beginner and intermediate mountain bikers can certainly appreciate.
"The three basic philosophies of the 3F are fitness, fun and most importantly, friendship", says Mark Warrick. "If you're left behind to fend for yourself every time you go out with a group of riders, you're going to feel completely unmotivated and ultimately you'll stop riding. A senior member of the 3F will always ride with the last person in line to make sure that never happens on our rides."
The 3F Bicycling Club encourages volunteerism. Many of the members of the club are docent volunteers for the Nature Conservancy and the Irvine Opens Space Preserve.
The newly launched website for the 3F Bicycling Club, http://www.3fbc.com serves as meeting place for riders all over the US. It features useful tools such as directories of bicycling clubs, bike shops, current cycling news, current events, and BMI and calorie counters. Visitors can also shop online by browsing through the online catalog of bike parts.
"Our rides are not timed, and we're not here to beat last week's time records. The key here is to have fun, make a few friends, and naturally you'll be in better shape as a result of the process", says Mark Warrick.
