La vie de vélo

Adventures in cycling and life

More urban assault riding

Instead of going big in the backcountry, I’ve lately taken to focusing on my own back yard.. stringing together various little trail systems in the goleta/santa barbara/montecito/summerland area into longer rides.

Today’s ride was perfect, a nice easy tempo, a good “recovery” ride at 4.5 hours and 50 miles. I hit up so many good local trails: More Mesa, Hope Ranch, Douglas Family Preserve, Elings Park, Jesusita, Hot Springs, Edison Catway, Girard/McMenemy, Old Pueblo, Fearing trail, Ortega Hill and many random little trail systems along the way.

The weather was perfect, the trails were hard packed and there was a lot of exploring to do.. this is what mountain biking is all about!
