Well today i woke up and decided i wanted to go on a ride. I wanted to make my way up hwy 33 past Ojai here in southern ca. and turn around where the 33 hits lockwood valley road to head back. Those were my only loose stipulations for today ride.
So i started my day down around sealevel ~ 40 or so ft above sealevel. i made my way up the 101 to the 33 through ojai and once i got past the hubub of the lil town the road was mine. O MAN that hwy 33 is a treat, different scenery than im ust to playing in (normally i dont go north of ventura, i usually play round malibu). At the peak of the 33 (5500ft up) there was a big turnout area and i was gettin a lil chilly, needed to take a piss, and needed to stretch so i pulled over and layed out in the sun for a good 10 min or so.
The beast chillin at the peak of hwy 33.
After i chilled a bit i got back on the bike and about 100 feet around the corner of the road there was this cool lookin semi paved road, i had no clue where it went and no clue how long it was, curiosity got the best of me so i went up it.
Here is the road about half mile in.... still some pavement, dirt everywhere but i was just takin it easy.
Then the pavement just kinda stopped, i just bout turned around but went... eh its not bad i have seen much worse on my dirbike... ill just pretend the 919 is a dirbike.
Another mile or so up there was a turnout / lookout area, i had to stop n take a pic... look the 919 is on top of the world!
And finally after multiple miles of nothing but this sketchy road... some type of civilization! a designated camp ground!
And another campground... this one another mile or so up the road.
After the second campground the pavement ended and the road became pure dirt... which was nice as pavement chunks are a bitch to ride on.
And finally ... after ~ 12mi or so of this cool lil unpaved / semi paved trail i hit the end... the trail head for Reyes peak trail... i started the day at 40ft above sealevel... and made it up to 7500ft!!!!!
Overall the ride was ~ 160mi and i am so very glad i decided to continue on that lil dirt road. the views were AMAZING (let me do a lil stitching together of some images for the awesome panoramic shots)
