Bike Rides

Brie after I asked her to extend more coming off the box. I am surrounded by wise asses.

The mountain bike ride was such an epic success (ask anyone, especially Kenzie) that we have received requests for more bike rides. There have been requests for a road ride (brightly colored lycra optional) as well.

A happening cruiser bike ride is more my style, gently weaving down a flat street with Mowgli doing all the work. Swinging by the ocean, check out the waves. Maybe going from a nice burger at Point A to a nice frozen yogurt at Point B on a sunny Santa Cruz afternoon. Now that’s a bike ride.

Bicycles are an integral part of Santa Cruz, indeed California, life. They are just part of the scene. Everyone has one of some sort and there are probably more bike shops in SC than gyms, yoga studios, and CrossFit boxes combined, and that’s saying a lot.

What kind of bikes do you have and what are your favorite rides to go on?
