Hey Steven. I'm from SJ but I go to school in Berkeley so I won't be around as much. You should check out this group, http://www.sjfixed.org/forum/ seem like a really cool group of guys/gals. I just recently got into fixies when i'm up here in Berk so I never rode with them, they have group ride every Tuesday night, and theres also the Hellyer Velodrome which is a cool place to check out.

Shaw's in Santa Clara. http://www.shawscycles.com/ Terry and Jerry are very cool. Totally old school, not hipsters. This week Hellyer is hosting the 2008 USAC Masters Track National Championships. http://www.ridethetrack.com/.

Los Gatos to see the doctors and lawyers ride their Serrota's and bikes worth more than your life all the way to the coffee shop.
Santa Cruz Mountains were a blast to ride in, I had a nice little out-and-back around Lexington Reservoir back when I was always up there for rowing.
Ride lots and enjoy the weather! I sure miss the 408.

The Tuesday Night Ride meets by the Event Center At San Jose State. There is a fountain there we all meet by.
