Take Trains to Scenic SoCal Coastal Bike Rides – So Cal Life Mag Article

By Richard Fox

Southern California is serviced by Amtrak and several bike-friendly regional rail lines.  I wrote an article for Southern California Life Magazine’s July-August 2015 issue highlighting the best easy scenic bike rides accessible along Amtrak’s Surfliner coastal route, as well as the local Metrolink and Coaster lines that use the same tracks between Ventura and San Diego Counties.

Cycling in Santa Barbara

Short but beautiful trail near the Biltmore.
Short but beautiful Class I trail in Montecito, southeast of Santa Barbara, near the Biltmore.  A combination of Class I and Class II routes take the rider from Santa Barbara to charming Carpinteria.  See page 64 (Ride SB1 – Option 2). Montecito is the land of Oprah Winfrey, and more recently Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi.
