I hadn’t really realized how much I had become used to riding on the same ol’ roads and paths around my family’s home in Sacramento. I had several routes I already knew of, and was familiar enough with them to match them to whatever my particular goal was for the ride. If I wanted to grind hills, I knew where to go. Looking for a flat TT type ride? That would be repeats on Captain’s Table road. Long endurance ride? Ride through Old Sacramento to the American River Bike Trail and just keep going.
However, now that I’ve got my self a new hometown (well, part time hometown at least) in San Mateo I’m kinda at a loss for where to ride.
