Saturday, April 1st Remote Ride - Ventura -Casitas Pass- Santa Barbara- coastal return (approx. 80 miles, 5,500 ft. climbing)

  • Marie Shannon Confections 27 South Chestnut Street Ventura, CA, 93001 United States (map)

In addition to the usual club ride from Performance this Saturday, a group plans on doing a remote ride from Ventura to Santa Barbara via Casitas Pass and some of the foothill climbs (Gobenador Canyon, Toro Canyon, Romero Canyon). There will be a mid ride refreshment stop at former pro cyclists Kim Anderson and Aaron Olsen's Handlebar Coffee shop in Santa Barbara before returning back to Ventura via the coast.

The route is approximately 80 miles long with approximately 5,500 feet of climbing. The pace will be a moderate endurance one with several re-grouping points at the top of the bigger climbs. Once back onto PCH from the bike path with approximately 7 miles to go, all bets are off pace wise...

We will meet in front of Marie Shannon Confections at 27 South Chestnut Street in Ventura at 8am and will roll at 8:15am. Please don't be late. There is a parking structure with free all day parking on the upper floors on Santa Clara Street close to the meeting point. There is also a free all day parking lot a few blocks west on Oak Street. Be careful, many of the spaces in town are 4 hours only and they do ticket.
