For road riding in the area I use my 1989 Vitus French aluminum racing bike, but for touring abroad I take my Bike Friday New World Tourist. Pretty much stopped mountain biking after rupturing my quadricep in 1997. Still have the great Bridgestone MB-1 in my stable of seven bikes.
Would like to ride about three times a week.
About 30 miles.
Paved trails in Contra Costa County.
