My Tuesday group rode from a spot close to the little city of Paicines in San Benito County, out neighbor to the south.
There was a variety of climbing within the foothills, with a relaxation cease on the lovely De Rosa vineyard. Just below 30 miles, with an awesome lunch afterwards in one other neat little city, Tres Pinos. The one drawback with these rural roads on this County are that they want some maintenance- a lot of potholes and cracked pavement. It’s not the most effective for a skinny-tired street bike, however I took my Sirrus with fatter tires, near being a “gravel” bike, and it was lots snug.
