No doubt we love all the good food, music and everything else that Santa Cruz has to offer. But getting back to the parking lot on a perfect summer evening after a long, hot, and joyful Demo ride, it’s hard to want to go back to town. If you planned right and have a cooler stuffed with snacks and cold beer, it’s real tempting to make a particular pitch to your buddies: Let’s just hang out and do that again in the morning. It’s happened more than once!
