Gonna ride Golden Gate Park, Presidio and Crissy Field? You live in quite the scenic city!

Yep!redface.gifThe person who helped me at the store told me about these bike rides where you ride with other bikers something from 10-100 miles. I'm interested in those too.

All you need for maintenance is a crescent wrench, a flat-head screwdriver and a tub of grease to pack the rear hub! loltongue.gif

You should go for it--build up base miles, meet other riders, learn to ride in a group, work up to  the world class routes that surround your area.

I'm hoping to go for a nice bike ride Sunday morning. I'm in the Bay Area. Any places to recommend guys? 

post #2307 of 3584

I haven't been to too many places that aren't between work and home, but, if you want something adventurous, I'd suggest Garin Regional Park, in Hayward ( 5 mi. from my place ). Heart Attack Hill is rightfully named. But, you could take Garin Ave to get there off Mission Blvd. Dirt trails, sometimes challenging sometimes not. Great view of the Bay once you reach the top. Or, if you want something a bit longer and easier ( read: flatter ), you may want to try Alameda Creek Trails out in the Union City area.

Amazing that with all the new technology, steel still ends up being superior in so many ways. I have had 6 steel road frames, 4 aluminum frames and two carbon frames. The the 2 SLX steel were by far the most romantic and nicest to ride. I'm sure it will be that way in 20 years too.

 

 

The other thing is that after you get a taste of what a SLX steel frame feels like on the road your kinda ruined as all other bikes are always set of small compromises in ride. These other bikes may have cost or lightness benefits still they are not the same.
