Join us for the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens Ride!
Join us for the Monthly Meeting & Ride to on Saturday, July the 14th, that will take us about 200 miles. Starting at Grinders in Moorpark at 0830, our Ride Captain, Ron, will lead us safely through the roads and have us back around o430.

This ride will take us to the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens where we will spend several hours hiking, walking, relaxing and maybe taking some pictures. While they do have a small cafeteria a picnic lunch is also a good option, your choice. Some of the hiking going down into the canyon is a little steep and could be muddy, so bringing some hiking shoes/boots would be a good idea - and don't forget your camera!

With sweeping views to the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Santa Barbara Channel Islands and stunning landscapes, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is a great place to explore California's native plant diversity.

The Garden's 78 acres encompass a variety of cultivated displays as well as stands of natural coast live oak and riparian woodlands.

With over 1,000 different taxa of plants on display there is always something new to experience.

Stroll the 5.5 miles of paths and discover featured areas within the Garden: the historic Mission Dam and aqueduct built in 1807 to supply water to the Santa Barbara Mission, an authentic Japanese Teahouse and Tea Garden, and the spectacular views along the Porter Trail. Experience the quiet cool of the Redwood grove on a hot summer’s day or the knockout punch of the Meadow wildflowers in full bloom in spring.
