Mountain Charlie Road

Mountain Charlie road high in the Santa Cruz mountains is one of my favorite weekend bicycle rides. Its a very rough and steep road, even riding a mountain bike.  It takes about sixty minutes to climb the 2,000 feet up to the summit but the fifteen minute downhill back to Glenwood road is an awesome reward. Its a crazy decent with a lot of tricky turns, unexpected cars and fast vanishing point drop-offs. A bicycle is the fastest way to go.
