Last summer I attended a family function in the central coast area.. We came home most of the way using 2 lane highways till we reached Magic Mountain...
Our route starting point Atascadero 101 and hwy41
41 west to Morro bay.
1 cabrillo hwy south to San Luis Obispo
1/101PCH south to Pismo
1 south through Lompoc and Vandenberg AFB
246 east through Solvang to 154
154 to Santa Barbra and catch the 192
192 till we hit the 150 through Lake Casitas and Ojai to Santa Paula and catch the 126 east to I5, 210 and home...
This was a pretty cool drive but I kept thinkin I wish I was on a bike... The 150 was a really nice stretch of road and quite doable as a group ride event out of socal...
I've ridden Big Bear, Idyllwild, Azusa canyon, East Fork, GMR, GRR, Turnbull, ACH, AFH, Upper Big T, Lower Big T, Little T, Aliso canyon, Mt. Wilson out to Wrightwood, Sand Canyon, Bouquet, San Francisquito, Spunky, Lake Hughes, Malibu Canyon/Las Virgenes, Mulholland, Stunt, Latigo, Piuma, Las Flores, Schuren, Kanan, PCH, 101 to Santa Barbara, Sunset, PV Drive East, Ortega, Palomar, and a few others that I don't remember.
There is only 1 canyon I want to try that I haven't yet, and that's the one that connects the 2 to the 39. AKA, Rincon/Red Box Truck Route.
