Hey folks- I am from NorCal, but I will be down in Santa Barbara for a wedding next weekend. I am thinking about bringing my bike and trying to get a quick ride in one of the days. I am thinking maybe 40 miles or so of scenic riding on great riding roads (the less traffic, the better). Climbing is not a problem, of course. I just need to be back by about 2:00 for the wedding (12 would be even better).
Should I just join the Saturday Echelon ride? http://www.echelonsantabarbara.org/RidesGroup.cfm
Or is there a definitive Santa Barbara ride that is not to be missed?
Any ideas or interest in putting together a group ride?
Thanks in advance!
