A classic 50-mile loop ride, starting in Ventura.
Do the work, put in the effort and after 9 miles of climbing you’ll be rewarded with a long downhill all the way back to your starting point.
This challenging loop ride offers spectacular views as you crest and enter the Ojai Valley.
Consider riding the route counter clockwise. As you make the turn and head south to Ventura jump on the off-road Ojai Valley Trail that connects to the Ventura River Trail taking you all way downtown.
How to get here
Take the AMTRAK Surfliner to Ventura, where you’ll easily intercept this route.
