    hmmm, i do hear that santa cruz has some real good spots. I guess that is all urban though? I'd be down for a natural ride...definately Half Moon Bay if that's what people want to ride. There are literally miles of rocks that go on forever, there is no pavement/sand in between them either, just rocks rocks rocks for a long time.
    What dates are good for people? It's summer for me so anything will work (except for july 16, derr)

    santa cruz definetly has lots of natural, too. But halfmoonbay looks really good too (all natty there?). I wouldn't mind taking a trip there one o these days.
    I'm still a working stiff, so eve's and wknds always work best for me.

    I really don't know if going to SC is possible (I've been there before, was going to be a banana slug if I didn't get into college in colorado...). I won't be in the state for long, so the closer the better. I don't know what kind of access to a car I will have.

    not at all. I'm always down to ride with people of any level. when I know of a group ride, i try to let everyone in the imediate area in on it. by the way, where do you live onto1wheel?

    heya Paul, I know you're a cool dude, and I appreciate your sf group rides (even though I haven't been able to get to one), and the sf comp you hosted a month or so ago (thanks again!). So i was sure hoping you'd post this ride, but... it kinda sounded like maybe not.
    Anyway, i'm in santa cruz/scotts valley.
    I hope i get a chance to ride with you guys in sf some day. seems like such an awesome place to ride!
    If you find yourself toward santa cruz, i'd be happy to show you some great spots (if you don't already know them)

    I'd come out to orinda. is there much to ride around there? if you dont have access to a car you can take the BART train to north berkeley for some street on campus or to the embarcadero station in sf for more street and some sweet rocks if you're willing to ride a bit.
    I'd be psyched to ride in santa cruz, theres lots of good stuff there.I just need to get my car drama sorted out(no insurance, leaking trans fluid).

    Andreas, would you be into riding on tuesday or wedsday?
