I took a great ride today around Tilden and Wildcat Canyon on a Scwinn road bike outfitted with cyclocross tires (27×1 1/4”) and clipless pedals. In the first 100 meters I almost fell while climbing, but quickly remembered to keep my butt in the seat for climbs. Lots of jarring descents without shocks made my arms feel like jello. It was fun!
