Written Directions

Starting in Santa Paula and ride the absolutely beautiful hwy 150 to Ojai. From there continue on route 150 through Casitas and out to hwy 101. Note: we started our ride in Venice Beach and ended up (after riding route 150 described) shot down the coast on hwy 101 and it really was an EPIC day of riding and beauty!

Scenery

Riding through Santa Paula is a rollback in time as you zip through the sleepy little town and the 150 into Ojai is a new favorite, beautiful sweeping turns past farms and ranches with green meadows everywhere you look. Even more impressive maybe was after eating lunch in Ojai we took the 150 past Lake Casitas with Pine trees, lake views and more sweeping turns out to hwy 101 just below Carpinteria...WOW! Beauty that has to be seen from a two-wheeled vantage point to be fully enjoyed. Note: after doing route 150, from there we ran down hwy 101 hugging the Pacific an absolutely gorgeous California day before stopping for a quick bite to eat at the Jolly Oyster on the strand in Ventura - literally in the sand! Then it was time to barrel home down PCH back to our urban beach community of Venice but without a doubt one of the best moto adventure days me and my wife have taken. Highly recommend it and can't wait to do it again when the rains let up.

Drive Enjoyment

The 150 in and out of Ojai is amazing, sweeping turns and a few technical turns with incredible scenery on well maintained, clean roads. In one run you get mountain and lake views until you're actually running into the Pacific - all the Cali has to offer in this quick, easy route.

Tourism Opportunities

Great restaurants, shops, antique stores with some historical landmarks along the way - we ate lunch at Azu in Ojai which serves great food. There's also Agave Maria's in Ojai which serves traditional Mexican dishes with a kick ass tangerine margarita - which i was suspect of at first but am now a big fan!

I ride this route a lot! Actually, I got my first ticket in 35-years along this stretch in August 2020, shortly before coming into Ojai. Me and a buddy were following a very slow large truck when I decided to pass them all. A CHP was sitting on the side of the road watching. Sh*t! $450 later.... We often ride to Ojai and then Carpenteria along this route coming up from Moorpark. I like riding through Grimes Canyon. One can take 126 or Barsdale into Santa Paula. Once in Ojai, one can go hit Hwy. 33 for more adventures.
