Road Ride Report: Cool Breeze Double Metric Century Up at 3:45 in the am to make the drive to Ventura. Get there, get checked in, and off I go at 6:53. First part of the ride is on a local bike path headed up toward Ojai. Then headed up Santa Ana Rd. And on to Meiners Oaks.. Headed into the sun in the Ojai foothills On to Creek Rd south side of Meiners Oaks. Oak View - going uphill again Casitas Pass Road....gets a tad steep, but is fun. Did I mention that Ventura has some horrible road surfaces? At the Santa Barbara County Line. There's a nice bike path along the 101, if you're into that. We meandered along Hwy 192 above Montecito for quite a while. And back toward the Pacific. Passing through RV land for a couple miles...amazing. This was about thirty minutes from the end. I enjoyed this ride, quite scenic. Road surfaces mostly sucked, but that could be overlooked. Riding for 5 miles on the 101 freeway was an experience I had not had before. There's a bike lane painted on the freeway, but that's it - so no pics for obvious reasons. Nothing to separate you from traffic. Going through Santa Barbara was quite scenic too, but much traffic. No pics. Overall, 130 miles; 7,047 feet of elevation gain, and a day in the saddle. Doesn't get much better than that.
