Sat 8/27/16: Oedipus Monthly Ride – “Ojai & Carpenteria”

Hi All,

Bit of a change and thought it would be better to hit Carpinteria via Ojai, as we’re not too sure about the fires in the area.

Fun times through Ojai and afternoon lunch in Carpinteria!

If you’re up for a nice leisurely ride through the unburnt mountains of Ojai and ending at the beach in Carpinteria for lunch at Padaro Beach Grill, please come join us.

Starting point will be at the Starbucks by the Burbank airport (2555 N Hollywood Way, Burbank).

9:30 Kickstands up, taking the 5 (N) to the 118 (W) and exiting at Los Angeles Avenue, staying on the right and meeting at the Moorpark Starbucks (561 Los Angeles Ave, Moorpark). This Starbucks is a bit before the corner of Los Angeles and Spring inside small mini mall on the right, where we’ve met for prior rides. Kickstands up at 10:00 am.

From there we’ll head back on Los Angeles (R) to Spring Street (R) to the 23 through some nice twisties and incredible scenery to the 126 (W) in Fillmore. From there we’ll continue heading west to the 150 (N) in Santa Paula to Ojai and stop at Chevron (360 E. Ojai Avenue, Ojai) for gas and nature calls.

We’ll continue heading on the 150 (W) past dry Lake Casitas to the 101 (N) to Carpinteria. Taking Exit 88 at Padaro Lane (L), and then Left on Santa Clause lane…making sure you’re not too naughty and nice for lunch at Padaro Beach Grill (3765 Santa Claus Ln, Carpinteria, CA 93013) on the right.

Hope to see you there and remember, drive safe and within your own comfort level.

Go to for complete details on GSR 2016

The Gay Sportbike Riders (GSR) group is an offshoot of the Yahoo GaySportbikeRiders Message Group. In 2002, members of the group from San Francisco and Los Angeles areas got together and organized the first GSR ride in San Luis Obispo, California. Since then, we have organized an annual ride at various scenic locations in ridable distance from these areas.

While originally centered around the California Central Coast area, in the past 9 years we began to explore different locations. This accommodated more riders and provided a better mix of riding routes.

Our events are based on a simple concept: low pressure, drama free fun. We pick a suggested location and agenda. You are free to participate as you see fit. You may decide to do all of the rides or none. We will suggest other events during the event that you are free to attend as you see fit.

We are the coordinators, not the leaders. There are no expectations from us. We do not make any reservations for you. You are responsible for all reservations, deposits and fees. We may organize some events that require an advanced payment, such as a BBQ at the host lodging. These fees are generally minimal and are not required for the event.

Lastly, we only have a few expectations:

Be respectful of others.

Ride safe and at your own pace.

Have fun!

Your ride coordinators: Howard & Lou
