not exactly SB, but still chillin in the 805! (ventura county) we haven't been up to SB in a couple months now..... i think i smell a trip brewing...borg said:How many Santa Barbara area riders are following this forum?
Not familiar with the area north of S.B. I would like to ride Red Rock, but I have to work out a trip with the wife and kids. You should definitely enter the Firestone Race in April. Go to www.ridesb.com for details. Even if you don't think you can win, a lot of guys ride just for the fun. 13 mile beginner course, a couple of good hills and a lot of XC single track and dirt roads. I rode last year, came in 24th of 30 and I am going again this year. Let me know if you have time to come down here and ride some hard rock mountains!@dam said:I moved to Lompoc this summer. I really haven't done many good rides yet (been injured). I've done some Gaviota riding though. Mega climbing.
Red Rock seems to be an interesting place to ride (went hiking there).
Lets go riding! I've been wanting to check out fig. mtn. What are the best trails up there?
yeah cookonabiker said:i live in sb in the san roque area the riding here is almost unbeatable great trails like tunnel coldsprings romero and good djs like more mesa and ellwood

Hey Stinky, I just got a my new Kona, I live here in SB on the Mesa. I'm looking for the best places to ride. I have ridden Jes. Pretty sweet but a b!tch to get to the top. Do you guys have a group or anything thats goes out regularly? I hear there's one that meets above the Mission on Wed evenings. And I would be interested in seeing the film.Stinky Wiz said:Heading out to Jes today around mid-day. I need to get some spokes fixed on my old wheelset beforehand. I'm still waiting for my new rims to get shipped so Velopro can build my new wheelset (been over a month now).
We've been doing some filming of our antics on the local trails (just Jes to date). I spent last weekend splicing together two hours of footage into two minutes. If anyone is interested, pm me & I can send you the link. Would love to hear what you think. It's nothing outrageous, just friends & some strangers having a good time. (I would post the link but I don't want my friends server to get overwhelmed).
We're planning on getting some more film shot on Tunnel & Romero sometime soon.
hey dude im in sb too. if its cool with you id like to go along on your ride down JES this weekend. i havent riden that trail in a long ass time. find my self sticking to tunnel. im on a 04 stinky with sherman slider and trailpimps so if you see me sometime flag me down. my name is james but i go by jack. i think i know the guys on the stinky and stab to.Stinky Wiz said:Very cool man, I will be around this weekend. I'm on a four day weekend starting Friday & I've got one, maybe two friends who are looking to get a ride in (most likely Saturday, but I can ride pretty much any day).
Can you Private Msg me some info so I can get ahold of you (ie 1st name & phone # or email)?
Thanks for the comments on the vid. We are doofus' & it's just fun to have something on film after all these years.
Your Coiler should be perfect for the trails around here! While I do have one friend who is pretty quick going up, I don't mind a gradual ascent & my other buddy is slow as molasses, so if he goes, you'll be in good company! The fast guy is on a Stinky, the other is on an older Stab.
