What's up Ben? Still working Saturdays? If by berg you mean my beat up, neglected Husky, yeah, I still have it. And I'll be riding it on bald knobbies tomorrow.

The El Rancho market is at the bottom of Refugio, where it meets the 246. Get to the stoplight and turn left and the parking lot is on the left. Good deli, and tables outside to eat on, I recommend the tri-tip. Fuel is to the right at the stoplight, just down the road a bit on your left.

The dirt section from the 154 to Refugio is easy. I have ridden it on my F800 almost every weekend recently.

Two weeks ago the road at W. Camino and Refugio was closed, really closed due to drainage construction. There was no way to get around it so I had to turn around and head back. Again, that was about two weeks ago. The project appeared to be well on its way to completion, so should be just fine now.

I live in SB, so if you guys have questions, just let me know.

Would love to ride, but wifes b-day weekend. (might be able to meet for coffee if you guys are still heading to Daily Grind, sounds like Summerland is the meet up spot though.)

It is East Camino Cielo and pavement ends at Romero Canyon. To continue on it takes going to an OHV area on down the north side of Romero. You can then get back to 5n12 that is a really big single track (was a road decades ago & a fire break basically now) and for most prolly not bike bike friendly.

ps: been here for 58 years as of yesterday and it took me a 1/2 hr to figer out what hell you were talking about.


One more thing there is a parking area just before Summerland at Padaro Ln ocean side of 101 that would/could be a good spot for those so inclined to truck up.

One more one more thing... what has been discussed so far really isn't big bike unfriendly but if'n you want to make it less comfortable bring on the little ones.

thank mike.

my initial thought is park the truck on greenwell and via real. drove by there many time and looks good but never checked it out. google earth shows it like a public parking for the little park fronting 101 and via real. if it is, that's great, if not for the public, i plan to drive over to padaro lane (mike's suggestion). it looks like that big empty lot on the left after crossing the rail road track.

we should be rolling out of summerland by 8:30 and meet vic and others at the gibraltar trail head before nine.

it is going to be a looooong day. summerland to el rancho market (refugion/mission) is about 55 miles. then another 20 miles of exploring, and the ride back to the truck (55 miles).

we should get gas after lunch.

who ever coming, please post up and no surprises.

those on big bikes, you can jstill enjoy the ride, ust do east and west camino if you're not comfortable of the other trails.

Guess I'm gonna have to show up to see what these other "trails" are that you speak of that you think you can ride a motorcycle on. Or maybe you've got some connections and have some of those elusive magic keys. Or maybe you just know something that I don't know. I guess it could happen.

heck mike, you haven't sent your membership fee and expect correct info. it's a damned nOOb's ride, what else could go wrong?...

where have you been. should be on top of this thread, since you have the local knowledge... ok, i'll PM you next time weeks before.

i'm not really sure, imho. google earth, zooming in for a locked gate , and web search are our only resources, plus those who posted earlier.

mike, awesome you can make it. love to see the SE...

PPs, we meet near the sheffield reservoir before 9 at mountain dr and gibraltar. vic can confirm.
