    noob in SF Bay Area

    Hi All,

    I'm Jan from Santa Clara, CA. I'm just back on a bike for the first time in over 10 years. I just turned 49 and with the advent of Spring weather here it got me itching to be outside and doing something physical. Dusted off my ancient un-loved Specialized bike and got it to a local bike shop. Then really liked the ride of the newer (new to me at least) upright comfort bikes. So, got a new one too. A Giant Cypress DX. I love it! Been discovering muscles that I didn't knwo I had

    I've been only doing casual riding. I want to find some bike only trails in my locale. I may even ride to work if I can find a safe route. The cars around here scare the crap out of me. So far I've been staying off the major roads and will continue to do so until I get completely comfortable and confident on a bike again.

    Thanks for the wonderful forums here!

    Cheers,
    --jans

    Welcome! There are lots of good mountain biking trails down that way and some mellower trails as well. I'm sure the guys in the norcal forum can provide directions, or you can look through websites like bikely.com and mapmyride.com to find routes near there. Have fun with it!
