When the weather is reasonable, I try to get 2-3 20 mile rides per week with about 1800’ of elevation. Mostly my route is from Felton to Santa Cruz to check in on Mom. That route allows me to ride down Highway 9 and come back over the campus. I’m riding a Gazelle Medeo T10 outfitted with panniers, so I’ve got assistance making that climb up to the house.

If I’m headed to the Eastside, I’ll ride over to Scotts Valley and drop down Glen Canyon or El Rancho Dr and loop out to do a surf check at Capitola.

Lynda bought me a new bike for my birthday. I did a lot of research and test riding. I landed on this Dutch made bike and have put about 1200 1700 miles on it so far. I've been working on sections of the Santa Cruz County Cycling Club's Mountain Challenge to see if we can tie a 50 mile section together. 

I've had a chance to put the bike on the Jeep and take it to some of the dog shows we've been to this past year including Napa, Palm Springs and San Francisco.
