On the recommendation of others, I rode this route backward (counterclockwise). I think it is better that way. This is a very technical ride, more for Joplin junkies. Lot’s of hike-a-bike stream crossings. Easy to find the route without GPS. Not worth a trip up, it's almost half asphalt, but a good one if you’re already in Santa Barbara

 Too hot for Harding-Motorway. Did this instead. LyroVK and I both donated blood to the trail. LyroVK's bike tried to take a shortcut down the mountain. Luckily, he wasn't on it! Retrieving it took moderate mounting-climbing skills. I went over-the-bars only to land on my feet running. The 2nd time I wasn't so lucky...OUCH! Made good time though.
