Santa Barbara Kick-off Party and Ride THIS SUNDAY, 2/18
GROUP RIDE CAMUESA * 9AM * First Crossing Parking Lot Paradise Road
TOPA TOPA PARTY * 3PM * Waterline, FunkZone SB
The Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers (SBMTV) in conjunction with the super rad Topa Topa Brewing Company will be hosting a kickoff party to build the stoke and display the bikes as they make their way to Santa Barbara this Sunday, February 18 at 3pm.
Topa Topa is housed in the Waterline, a super cool industrial warehouse space shared with artisans and small boutiques within Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone neighborhood. It’s an apt venue for showcasing the raffle and it should be a great time for all who attend. We’ll have an on-site schwag raffle for anyone in attendance who donates, and free Santa Cruz pint glasses for anyone who donates $15 or more to the raffle. If you would like to pitch in scwhag for this event, reply to me separately and we’ll figure out how to get your stuff to Topa Topa. Big props to Topa Topa for not only hosting the kick-off but for opening their doors so enthusiastically.
Sunday will kick off with an SBMTV-led ride of the Camuesa Loop starting from the First Crossing Parking Lot at 9am. It’s a stout little ride–about 11 miles with 2,100 feet of climbing which will probably take the better part of two hours. It’s open to anyone, but you need to be prepared for a steep, lung-and-leg-busting climb up Camuesa Canyon Road to get to the goods–the recently SBMTV-refurbished Camuesa Connector singletrack.
