Best beginner bike touring route?
We think you’ll agree. This 16-mile, out and back route climbs gradually from Ventura to Ojai.
Take the train
For an easy getaway take the AMTRAK Surfliner from Los Angeles, San Diego or Santa Barbara to Ventura – bring your bike for free.
From the Ventura AMTRAK Station follow the Ventura River Trail which eventually turns into the Ojai Valley Trail. Enjoy the quiet trail and the beautiful valley views.
The off-road trail and the gentle grade from Ventura makes this an ideal ride for children.
Plan an overnight stay, or two – you won’t want to leave.
Riding fat tires? Combine this ride with the Sulphur Mountain Loop for a great weekend of riding adventures.
