I have a friend who's currently getting fairly serious about indoor bike training - went from just noodling around on a stationary bike randomly, to some pretty good continuous 1 hour efforts several times a week. That said, he's still a beginner and while he owns a road bike, he's never really ridden it recently.
He asked me for some help for local routes in Los Gatos where he's based. I unfortunately know really only teh big climbs which would almost certainly be too hard for him right now (maybe the near future).
Anybody recommend any beginner bike rides/routes for a new rider like him?
