Here on the UCSB Triathlon Team, we ride bicycles. A lot. To make our lives easier while riding said bicycles, here are some routes that we frequently ride, created by our very own Coach Matt.
Hope Ranch Loop
A short ride along the ocean that passes by lots of big, fancy houses and palm trees.
Cat Oaks/Los Caneros Loop
A short ride near campus that loops around Goleta.
Cat Oaks Workout Route
This is similar the Cat Oaks Loop except it's a bit longer, a bit tougher, and you ride it a bit faster.
San Roque Loop
This is similar to the Cat Oaks Loop in the sense that it winds up on Cat Oaks eventually but has some rolling hills in the middle of the ride.
A short climb to some nice views.
The best ride.
This ride goes to the Lucky Llama Coffee Shop in Carpinteria, CA. It's great: the ride and the coffee shop.
This ride goes toward Carp via the 192 and (after picking some avocados) up Gobernador Canyon Road or "Goob" before looping back around.
