There is a bike path that runs alongside the river from Ojai all the way to Ventura. It's scenic and relatively easy. Plenty of shade in spots. My wife and I do the ride from the coast to town, have...

I've replaced the Sidi insoles on my mtb shoes multiple times. Even the comfort ones are pretty thin. I can't say with any certainty that they make much difference. Next time I may look at other...

Thinking I may start by again replacing the insole, which I did last about two years ago. Although it's so thin I wonder whether they do anything!

Has anyone tried other brand insoles for Sidi's?

This is part of what I'm thinking. It's not that the shoes appear worn out. I wonder about the items above which would then change the fit.

As I think about this, I guess that question I'm trying to answer is whether anyone has had a foot issue pop up after x number of years that got solved by simply replacing the shoes.

How long do your shoes last?

Yeah, I know. It's an all-over-the-place question that probably won't quite tell me much. Seems like these should go a long time.

I'm just starting to experience some arch issues with a pair of...

Follow up: I got another SMP 209 and it's fine so far. Too much overthinking on my part on this. Meantime, I'm going to sell off my older 209 as it's still in decent shape.

Have a good ride! You will really like the new bike path along the 101 north of Ventura. No more sharing the lane with big rigs.

It's just a few miles from my house and is generally the way most of us gain access to the canyons. Always try to ride there before 10 a.m. and never on a weekend afternoon.

Rock Store climb.....of course

I'm convinced that the photogs up there are creating some of this problem. Nice guys, but it just causes these idiots to do this:

It would never be my first choice. Tons of traffic, few cyclists. I think the shoulders are marginal in many places, not to mention the tunnel.
Topanga from PCH pretty crowded too, of course....

Start here in Thousand Oaks......rats....it's during the week and they zoom out of town pretty quickly. Much preferred when they finish the race with Rock Store circuits. Maybe next year!
