Anyone ever been to this? Anyone going tomorrow?
I'm thinking about it, but wondering if it's worth cutting my morning ride short to make the drive from PG...just to be a spectator.

|Maybe I'll hit Soquel Demo Forrest on the way there. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Is that the place with the giant artichoke?|
|That's too far-||rideslikeagirl|

|The big 'choke is in Castroville - about another 15 miles south of Watsonville.
Ya know, all those 'ville's sound alike. ;-)
Soquel Demo Forrest? What's that?

|Demo is one of the great places on earth for mountain biking. Lots and lots of rare singletrack, a lot of it quite technical. And practically the whole thing is a big redwood grove. It's also one of the few places on earth where mountain bikers are generally loved, not feared. It's Shangri-La!

|That might be enough to make me convert!
Actually, Fort Ord is the roadie equivalent...miles of paved roads that have been permanently closed to cars. It's a beautiful thing- I can't believe it took me over a year to check it out!
