Last weekend, we were down in Santa Barbara which is about 100 miles
north of Los Angeles. We had arranged to meet up with Scot Cooper and a
couple of the local riders with whom we've ridden before. Hans Van
Koppen organized a great ride: 3 miles or so up a fireroad, with many
beautiful ocean views, a little over 1000' of climbing. The descent was
via a steep technical singletrack trail deep in Romero Canyon. The
weather was perfect and everyone had a great time.

Let me know if you're interested in another similar ride there on Jan
17, 2004 - if you're in the area, you'll love it. The trails are
fantastic!

Nice shots Nathan...that looks like a fun ride.  I also checked out the
ones you posted from Sedona....maybe it's my desert rat background, but
I liked those even more.  Riding there is now on my short list of things
to do.....I just need to build up enough stress at work that I can
justify it as a psychological recovery.

Plus I'm jealous....I've been working super hard to expand my juggling
repetoire, and all of a sudden you come along and introduce the concept
of juggling "vortex rocks".  Up until then, I thought I was kind of cool
being able to do clubs, rings, and cigar boxes. :cool:

That looks like such a fun trail.  The ride down has to be fun.  That's
the kind of trail I like.

I'm jealous.  It's the rainy yucky season in Seattle right now.  Not
much muni going on for me.  I took the Coker out for ride yesterday
during a wind storm.  I just put on a new handlebar setup on my Coker
and I needed to give it a test ride.  Who cares about a little bit of
wind and rain.  There were downed branches all over the bike path, cars
being detoured around blocked roads, utility crews very busy clearing
roads and fixing power lines.  Freemounting the Coker is much more
difficult in gusting winds.  But I got to ride so it was all good and I
got to try out my new handlebar setup.

If Santa Barbara was within a days drive for me I'd be down there in a
heartbeat to go riding.

Come on John...I've done Santa Barbara to Everett/Seattle in 18.5 hrs.
That's a days drive right? :)

We get Alaska Airlines into Santa Barbara airport now too.

Yup. Notice how his wheel doesn't even break the surface of the water.
Us "ordinary" riders have to risk getting wet!

One heartbeat per day? See a doctor.
