Moving back to Santa Barbara, CA. ugh
« on: June 04, 2013, 05:29:46 pm »
On the up side I will be leaving the central valley very soon :) I want to move north but SB is better than Fresno :)

I've been away from Santa Barbara sense '86 and only visited a few times sense then, I know I'm in for a shock... I'd love to hear from others that live and ride/tour in the area. I "live" on my bike having given up on driving the car just over a year ago and would be just as happy to not have to use it again :)

Having rediscovered cycling this late in life I'm trying to catch up on lost time LOL I rode my bike everywhere when I lived in SB the last time. All I know now is that the hills are going to be a challenge. It's flat out here in the central valley with few hills in my path.

Commuting and touring are my main focus, off road doesn't do anything for me. I'd like to see some of the old mountain roads I used to drive around in my youth, well I'm not that old but the millage this body has racked up... I feel it LOL

I don't know what the "ugh" is all about.  I'd love to move to SB.  Prob about the best climate in the world for outdoor activities!
May the wind be at your back!

LOL I'm more interested in moving North, I keep getting dragged south. Plus the cost of living in SB is insane, so ugh...

But yes the climate there is fantastic.
