    Cool-blue Rhythm San Francisco/Bay area shops?

    I will be in SF December 22nd through the 30th and really want to ride Soquel Demo and any other interesting technical trail rides. I would appreciate any suggestions on shops or hook ups that might be able to steer me in the right direction. I will be aboard my Instigator so I am not looking for humongous stunts, but rippin' fun technical trail rides. Thanx.

    Head to Santa Cruz for that info.

    SF is a little over an hour from the demo forest. Head into santa cruz and find some of the bike shops there for more info on local trails. Another Bike Shop, Family cycling, and Bike trip are all shops in the area (and have web pages too I believe).

    THe demo is fun to ride, but be ready for climbing back up and also out back to the car. The trails around UCSC are cool and have some nice flowing single track. Most of the large stunts are gone, but a few can be found. There is a large drop that McCaul does in Chain reaction 5 if you know where to look.

    I sent you a note offline via pm. Email me, I can hook you up on some good riding.

    Shops worth talking to are Family cycling, the bike trip, Another bike shop (ABS), and scotts valley cyclesport.

    FWIW the demo is fun, but expect to climb in about 40 min, descend for 20-25, and then climb another 40 min to the car. It is really a lot of doing for minimal dh rewards. Worth riding a few times a season anyhow for a local.
