I would love to do that ride, let me know if you want to go to Cold Springs Tavern sometime too. Also was thinking maybe there should be a Ventura county weekend ride. Cmon!

Winter Road & Trail Closures
- Certain roads in Los Padres National Forest are subject to weather-related closures. Most of the roads are closed just prior to predicted storms and are reopened once the road surface dries out.

I thought after the fires in the area this road was closed for a year, but I guess not!

If your not familiar with this road, it goes from Refugion Beach up and over to the top of the mountains above Santa Barbara. Spectacular riding and views...

SCD Cleanup Recon Ride

It has been 2 long months since any of us rode SCD. Snow and ice pretty much shut it down.

Meantime, several pages back, we talked about doing a clean up and adopt a trail. SCD is one of them. So with short notice, we decided to do a recon of the area.

It seems riders with blue bikes are more civic oriented than the oranges, greens and reds.


The ride up is always fun. Little T is the sweet icing on a good cake


Even at 9am...the twisty road was still deserted


Can you spot Sopascat?


The crew


knlkern has a good eye for trash....


Anyone has missing windows?



Maybe a screen door?


I don't think these belongs here


shit, the door is here too


Here's a good one for those who wonder if there's still snow up there...


The official garbage spotter was surgically precise in locating more trash.






As we ride deeper into SCD, the size of the garbage get smaller









It appears that Dunerat or Notmybikemodelname has beern frequenting in this area


The last trash we saw


Nuff trash talk...time to ride and enjoy the beautiful day.


more pics coming.

olympia jacket photo shoot..



from scd we rode down on indian canyon. looks good for a few miles then become rutted due to the snow and rain. best of all no dust, or maybe we're not spinning our rears fast enough...


very little trash here....


this section of indian canyon used to be a dump..fridge, washing machine, mattress, sofa, kitchen sink, etc.




made it to the bottom without a broken clutch lever this time


then next thing i know artboy and cathy were playing little moto-x...

the rain left it's mark too



the only tire tracks belong to artboy and knlkern...while cathy threads lightly




the switchbacks are always testing our cornering skill




instead of continuing on scd, we opted to ride down on bpl


the strippers were not working this morning


not sure what they mine at this place..


this hill was unconquered on this ride


lunch at don cuco's...and an adv fan..

firemen doing their sat drill









back to little t


though i had reservation riding today due to next weekend's dv ride, i'm glad i did go out. it was a beautiful day to be outdoors, got to do our recon, got a little workout, and able to find out scd is prime for riding again.

thanks cathy, chris and chris..
