I'm visiting a friend in Los Altos for a week at the end of July, and have been told I have access to a bike while I'm there. I'm mostly a commuter/utility cyclist, but figure it would be a shame to miss out on a nice ride just because I don't have errands to run or a job to get to. If there is one must-do ride around the Los Altos area (or somewhere reasonably close), what would it be?
I'm curious about a phenomenon I've heard of around your parts, which I believe are called "hills." I'm not sure how well I would take to them, living on an alluvial plain as I do, but I'd like to give them a try. Within reason.
If there's a group ride of some kind happening July 24-31, I might be interested in that, too!
Thanks in advance.
