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.
