This ride is an exciting ride that will take you through the coastal mountain ranges of Central California and down into lush farmland, tunnels, coastal forest. The ride destination is Ventura Ca. Take the Main St. exit when on the N. 101 and head toward the old town. Be sure to take a walk in Cannon Park and go see the giant fig tree from Australia (also in Cannon park). This area is really busy and parking can be difficult at times. Go planning to relax and spend a few hours on the bike followed by an hour or two having lunch and walking around.
Take the 126 back if you want a straight shot home and catch the 5 North. This even unto itself is an interesting aspect of riding.
Pack smart on this ride. You will entering and exiting a wide variety of altitudes, and regional weather areas. Bring sun block, lip balm, wet weather gear and have a jacket ready, it can get cold in the mountain passes.
