Join us for the Cold Springs Tavern Ride!
Join us for the Monthly Meeting & Ride to Santa Barbara on Saturday, November the 9th, that will take us about 150 miles with a lunch stop at Cold Springs Tavern. Starting at Grinders in Moorpark at 0830, our Ride Captain, Danny, will lead us safely through the roads and have us back around 0400.

Our route will take us through some great, twisty back roads in both Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. We will end up at the Cold Sprigs Tavern about 12:30 or so for lunch and then have an easy ride back home.

The Cold Spring Tavern began as a stagecoach stop in 1886. The physical appearance of the Tavern has been protected by a series of owners and most recently by Adelaide Ovington and her daughter Audrey who purchased the Tavern in 1941. It has been operating as a restaurant/tavern continuously since that date.

Many famous people have been to the Tavern over the years. One movie and several television programs were filmed here. When asked why the fact that many Hollywood stars visited the Tavern was never publicized, Audrey's answer was, "... Honey, .. That's why they come."

The current owners are Joy Ovington Wilson and her husband, Wayne. They have said that they will carry on the traditions of the Tavern and will endeavor to protect the Tavern for the enjoyment of future generations. "It's a tremendous responsibility but we will do our best."

Our chef is Moises Bernal. Moises has guided our kitchen staff for over 15 years. He is the guardian of the tavern's historic menu and is especially good at creating the daily specials. I know you will enjoy the results of his efforts.

We consider our employees to be a family who all consider the Tavern to be a very special place. Many of them have been here for over 12 or more years. It is their desire that everyone who makes the effort to come to the Tavern should be treated to a dining experience like they have not enjoyed before. We never change and that goes for the high quality of our food and the excellence of our service.
