I remember checking out alot of those places but didn't get a chance to ride em. I lived in Compton and would hear about these places at Ascot... When did they close the track in Pedro?
Where at in Compton Oki??? I used to live right off of Rosecrans and Atlantic and my mom and sister still live there.

well guys i live in pv now and miss the old days.
The pedro track was the bomb. Ascott and alpine village were the closest. Bednorse and turnell all of the old schoolers were around those tracks.
Lee the number is 310 377 1983 if you need a place or a bike next time your hear.
Marineland is now Terrenea Resort. The jumps across street are houses. They have a nature preserve with dh riding or xc. there were jumps and trails but the bird watchers put and end to that.
The chalk fields when we were kids on crest was the gnar at that time. Now it is all 2 million dollar homes.
Street riding from Torrance to elporto is all that is left.
i ride at night because i can session some things but the police have really been on it. They jumped me the other night and asked me why i ride that funny little bike. Almost got arrested when i told him to go get my bike from the bushes where he threw it. Didnt do me any good wearing a dope sweatshirt either cuz at 43 i must be a criminal because i ride a twenty from s&m and wear dope bmx tees. Classic
Anyone ever up to the south bay and looking for a place to crash or ride let me know. The surfing is not so bad firstname.lastname@example.org or the phone number listed above.
Mike, I may be giving you a call for sure. I still have the creeps about bringing my bike down with all the extra security screening at the Airport and don't want any hold ups. But I will more than likely have a place to stay, Food to eat, but a bike to ride and friends to ride with are another animal I haven't figured out yet. You know at our age finding a friend with a bike to let me ride is like finding a needle in a haystack. Heck all my friends are either Dead, In Prison, or think that I am nuts for riding still. LOL I am putting in my Vacation time for either the end of January or beginning of February. Hopefully they go for it so I can get out of this Mid-Western Snow. Grrrrrrrr!!!
Oh yeah, I get harrassed out here for riding my Supercross Envy around town. Especially when I'm doing sprints down at the River Front. "What's a 38 Y/O doing riding a kids bike" is the first thing that always comes out of their mouth until I start pulling reciepts out and they see it not a Kids Bike.
