Santa Barbara is known as America’s Riveria because of it’s breath-taking ocean views and also the temperate climate which allows for botanical diversity and vibrant colors seldom seen elsewhere. The shoreline properties have been carefully cultivated for generations allowing for older specimens making this a tour sure to delight cyclists who appreciate views of the ocean and gardens. Lunch at the Garden Market in Carpentaria is served in a courtyard garden a stone’s throw from the beach.
