Beautiful Backroads in San Benito County
My Tuesday group rode from a spot near the little town of Paicines in San Benito County, out neighbor to the south.
There was a lot of climbing in the foothills, with a rest stop at the beautiful De Rosa winery. Just under 30 miles, with a great lunch afterwards in another neat little town, Tres Pinos. The only problem with these rural roads in this County are that they need some maintenance- lots of potholes and cracked pavement. It’s not the best for a skinny-tired road bike, but I took my Sirrus with fatter tires, close to being a “gravel” bike, and it was plenty comfortable.
