Woj is spot on. It's maybe 5 miles as the crow flies from the coast with amazing views of Morro Bay and Morro rock from the top. The descent (either way) is awesome, Prefumo is just a screaming, smooth, technical descent and the back side, See Canyon, is part dirt, part really steep fast stuff...
Most of the hills in the background are ranch property, which I have explored a little on a cross bike. There are some pretty solid climbs along the central coast though, but nothing like the 20+km climbs you see in the GTs.

Downhill - not really my cup of tea and not really weight weenie bikes either. Good fun though :D

edit - Verbier - Switzerland

Actually from close to two weeks ago - but have only now got around to updating my blog with day one of two riding around Bormio.

Bormio side of the Passo dello Stelvio

Returned the 3km down the Bormio side to continue descending off the Passo dell'Umbrail

Continued down through Müstair to the village of Prato allo Stelvio to also climb the other side.

Down low

Finally above the Refugio that marks around 7km to go!

Actually of the two days this was the nice one weather wise - day two over the Mortirolo and Gavia wasn't pleasant with rain and some sleet on the Gavia...
