I figured today would be a good one to visit the CT forums for the first time as my legs aren’t in the mood for moving much. I hosted the Rapha Prestige in Santa Barbara this weekend, having designed the route as a mash up of my favorite local places. I wanted to make it available to anyone should they wish to visit, as it received favorable reviews and we could always use more bike tourism on the central coast. At 150km with 4000 meters of ascent, and being 60% dirt, I strongly recommend a gravel bike with at least 34c tubeless tires. It is remote, so please bring a friend along with you.
Fastest ride time is 7 hours and 33 minutes if you’re looking for an extra bit of challenge…
