This route predominately travels the bike paths along the beaches between Santa Barbara and Summerland. It begins on the bluffs of Leadbetter beach, passes the stunning landscapes of the Four Seasons Hotel, the Music Academy of the West and the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. This is a mostly flat course with some gentle hills; comfortable shoulders and Class 2 bike lanes round out what is otherwise, a beach cruise. The views are what make this tour unique. 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.
