Best place to ride for a month to 6 weeks?(2 posts)

Best place to ride for a month to 6 weeks?hammer_cycle

Do to a change in my work schedule, I will have some time off. I'm seriously thinking about putting my bike in the car and heading somewhere where the riding is great. I was thinking the SF Bay Area, San Diego, or Colorado Springs as I have friends in either area. What do you guys suggest?

I haven't taken the bike to Colorado, however, I think the SF Bay Area would be the absolute worst. I'm not sure if you're thinking about SF proper or East Bay or Sausalito or what, however, you'd have to get far out of the city to find some nice riding in my opinion. Perhaps up in the Napa or Sonoma areas, down my Half Moon Bay or in the East Bay (not too pretty IMO). There is a lot of riding in the San Diego area, however, same thing, out of the city proper. There is a lot of riding in the Leucadia and surrounding areas. In my opinion, go riding in the Central area. Santa Barbara up to SLO, Paso Robles, up to Big Sur, and there is some good riding all the way to Monterey and Santa Cruz.
