What's New

For return visitors this page provides a quick, at-a-glance update on new rides or features added to the site. As the site itself was born in August of 2002, new items will be listed beginning in September 2002, with the most recent additions listed first.

07/26/2003 - Added West Camino Cielo, A short 4.1 mi. road (although it feels like more) that like it's cousin East Camino, features some of the best views Santa Barbara has to offer. Unfortunately and also like East Camino Cielo, the road conditions are quite poor.

06/08/2003 - Added a new section to the site, "Road Closures". I had been posting notice of all road closures in this section but some people were missing them and planning rides for closed roads (or for roads in which I also posted detours around the closures). Hopefully this new section will allow a quick "at-a-glance" reference for current road closures in the area.

01/25/2003 - It's getting real green in the county! Typical of Southern/Central California in January, high pressure has kept the sun shining. Due to the decent amounts of rain in November and December of 2002 we have an early spring, with everything looking lush and green.

11/22/2002 - A short 5.3 mi. road full of twisties. Stagecoach road is probably one of the county's most famous roads as it is part of the historical stage couch route and the home of The Cold Springs Tavern.
