We will start at Roblar Winery (3010 Roblar Ave Santa Ynez,) in the heart of Santa Barbara wine Country, just off Highway 154 (San Marcos Pass Rd). The route follows Roblar Avenue out to Baseline Rd to Happy Canyon Road (which is appropriately named). We will pass Bridlewood Estates and East Valley Vineyards as we meander through a pastoral oak fill canyon with horse and cattle ranches … you’ll notice signs that say “Slow Horses” or ‘Slow Please (Cows and Calves on Road)”. We will turn around and return along Happy Canyon Road coming back on Baseline Rd, cross over 154 to Refuguo Rd and head toward Los Olivos. The Roblar Winery is at the intersection of Refuguo Rd and Roblar Rd. After the ride, we will meet up at Roblar Winery for some woodoven pizza, charcuterie plates, and possibly a wine flight of their reserve wines.
Most of the ride is along rolling hills, and is relatively flat or a slight grade gradually working to a moderate to difficult grade as you continue up Happy Canyon Road. It is very easy to adjust this ride for your level of riding and disposition of the day.
All options start at 9:30 . Let’s meet at 9:15 at Roblar Winery, please allow 45 Minutes drive from SB
