I have a love/hate relationship with the foothills. There is some really cool stuff, if you know where to look.
If you don't know where to look, it sucks. Loose gravel, and perfectly smooth trails. So you work twice as hard on the uphills, and the downhills are over in 5 seconds. It'll seem like your entire ride is uphill.
A good area for maintaining fitness and skills in the winter.
It's fun to laugh at all the people on serious bikes out there. And they're not riding the good stuff!
