My love of cycling started right here in Santa Barbara over 35 years ago. Oops! I shouldn’t date myself , even though I just did. Back then there were already many bike paths and now there are so many more. The municipality of Santa Barbara has done an amazing job linking the city through this extensive network of paths. The coastal path starts on Modoc right near La Cumbre Rd.Does it get anymore charming than this? Just when you thought that was all there was how about the coastal kitty? We continued along the path until we reached Goleta Beach, another great photo op.All in all a beautiful morning and great ride along one of the many Santa Barbara bike paths. I can’t wait to explore more next time.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon we decided to check out the Hansen Dam Bike Path. Read more….
Have you ever seen bikes like these before? Only twenty pounds, they’re lightweight Brompton’s. Read more….
We’re linking. Not website linking, not blog linking, but finally we’ve linked the metro and bike paths for the first time. Read More….
Bill and I set out to explore the Rio Hondo bike path and unfortunately spent so much time looking for the entrance we didn’t get to ride as far as we’d planned. We found 2 entrances. The first at the Peck Road Water Conservation Park, 5401 N Peck Road, about 1/2 block south of Live Oak, in Arcadia. Read More….
Today we started on a short sweet bike path in Duarte. The trail starts at the corner of Buena Vista and Royal Oaks, just north of the Santa Teresita Retirement Home and even has a sign to watch out for sisters crossing. Read More….
The most difficult part of exploring the bike paths is finding them. The bike maps tend to leave out the exact entrances and exists so after a bit of research I’d like to share this information with all of you.
Decided to explore the LA river. First we headed north from Fletcher Drive. Read More….
As a 20 year resident of Pasadena, I thought it would be fortuitous to start my rides at the Rose Bowl. Together with my husband Bill, we decided to give ourselves a mini-challenge. Once around the Rose Bowl equals 3.2 miles. Why not 3 times around and make it into exercise? This is a wonderful park. I would advise off hours as there is less traffic so 10:00am to 2:00pm or an early weekend morning. Birds chirping squirrels scurrying, dog walkers walking and the sun shinning. AweSome!!
