Just looking for good weekend rides with meduim-fast pace, of a distance of 50-85 miles. Any rides within easy driving distance would be greatly appreciated, say the Santa Barbara area or down around malibu I could get too.
Thanks in advance,
Soultrain the cyclist,

In Santa Barbara on Saturday mornings, groups meet at Santa Barbara Roasting Company (corner of State St & Gutierrez) at 7:00, 8:00, and 9:00 for various rides. I think some people also meet on Sundays as well. If the ride isn't what you want, there is often other people there looking to ride different routes. A typical ride is out to Lake Casitas and back (45 to 60 miles), or out to Lake Castias, down the bike path to Ventura, and up the coast to SB (about 70 miles). I sometimes ride the, but go thru the hills of Montecito and out Foothill thru Goleta to Sandpiper and back to SB for a 100 mile ride.
