Hello from Northern California

Hi All,
Recently got back in to cycling after a 10 year layoff. Currently riding a Felt VR3 and loving it. Heavy into climbing and of course, descending . Looking forward to continuing to learn from everyone here and sharing experiences! Happy and safe riding, all!

not sure about the world? But in the US, perhaps. Iím literally in a 30 mile radius from some really nice climbs. Calaveras , Sierra, Old La Honda, Mt Hamilton, Mt Umunhum, Montabello, the list goes on. 😁

When I lived in San Jose, 25+ years ago, my favorite ride was to Santa Cruz, via Highway 9. It was quite the challenge, but very rewarding and fun. I've lived in the Washington DC area, since then. There aren't any nice climbs, here. And, the weather... I won't talk about that.

Nice! I havenít done San Jose to Santa Cruz yet, but certainly on my list. Been on the 9 however, and that is one fun descent.
