Experience Southern California’s Premier Coastal Bike Ride! Whether you’re a seasoned centurion or just coming out for your first organized ride, you’ll find a Cool Breeze route to please your pedals.

Five routes include our unique, beautiful California Coast. Our cheerful volunteers are eager to help make your ride day an experience to remember. Rest stops are stocked with abundant snacks to fuel your journey. And don’t forget what we’re famous for – Popsicles on the Rincon! Popsicle Power and the cool coastal breeze will whisk you back to the ride finish where you’ll share the day’s adventures with fellow cycling enthusiasts as you enjoy a satisfying post-ride meal. All routes start and finish at the Trudy Tuttle Arriaga Education Service Center.

2016 Cool Breeze Mini Metric (30 miles) is a perfect introduction for beginner to intermediate, family, or recreational cyclists. This route is a true coastal cruise along the Pacific Ocean for 75% of the ride. Your turn around point is at the beautiful Rincon Park, a fantastic photo op that you won’t want to miss. Look for dolphins!

2016 Cool Breeze Metric Century (60 miles) is for the “not quite ready for a century yet” rider. You’ll get the same rewarding experience, but have time to take in the scenery. This option heads up a dedicated bike path to historic Ojai and its famous Arboreta. After refueling at San Antonio rest stop, you’ll enjoy a fun downhill ride back to the coast. A jaunt up to Rincon Park is rewarded with a magnificent view and an icy treat.

2016 Cool Breeze Century (100 miles) Up for our trademark route? It’s what’s put us on the map! If this is your first organized century, you’re in for a treat. Breathtaking ocean vistas, challenging climbs, along with plenty of flat roads take you through our most iconic back roads and beachside communities. About 4000 feet of climb makes for a just-right challenge, yet enjoyable day in the saddle.

2016 Cool Breeze Hilly Century (100 miles) What… you like the climb? This journey takes you around Lake Casitas and up, up, up for a view of the lake. Continue up through the hills of Santa Barbara and out to forested Stow Grove for a relaxing lunch with your cycling comrades. After refueling, enjoy the cool breeze back down the coast. Don’t forget the final stop at Rincon Park to enjoy a well-deserved Popsicle – those last 15 miles never tasted so sweet.

2016 Cool Breeze Double Metric Century (125 miles) Hard core, are you? We’ll give you the whole enchilada. You’ll start by heading into Ojai along a dedicated bike path for a nice warm up. A challenging climb up Casitas Pass takes you around Lake Casitas and up to beautiful vistas of the lake and Pacific Ocean. You’ll continue into Santa Barbara where once again you’ll be amazed by the stunning views. Drop down to forested Stow Grove and meet up with your Century buddies to enjoy lunch and conversation before heading south (actually east but you’re using GPS anyway). There’s still plenty of great riding left, but now you’ll enjoy a flatter route with a good chance of a coastal tail wind. Stop at Rincon Park for some POPSICLE POWER and then head to the finish for a great after ride meal.
