Road riding in Santa Cruz
I'm going to be in Santa Cruz for the next couple of days. Anyone know of good areas to ride?

Lots. Which days and what time are you planning to ride?

Actually arrived here around 3pm today. After the wife and kids had dinner in Capitola I dropped them off at the motel and took a night ride through the boardwalk area.

There are lots of nice country roads (w/shoulders) in the East Aptos area... take 1 south to freedom (next exit past rio del mar) and start riding east... actually either direction is decent...

also you could go north on 1... I know there is a decent shoulder but don't know how the conditions are AND lots of hilly stuff in the mtns themselves, you may want to PM BigSean to see if he has some specifics for ya :p

um...anywhere? lots of great rides out there

start out at pajaro high school and follow the yellow arrows for the Strawberry Fields Forever route.

maybe take water st up to branciforte, and follow it up granite creek road..or for an easier time take the bus to scott's valley and go down the same route :)
