Took a look at the map and decided to ride coastal east for some mileage, then head inland to make my way up E Mountain Dr to get to the epic climb up Gibralter Rd.
Heading inland towards E Mountain Dr, I was wowed by the height of the Eucalyptus trees... at least twice as high as the power lines
|E Mountain Dr is an epic ride itself|

|The climb up Gibralter goes on and on|
|Los Padres mountains to the north|
|Santa Barbara & ocean views to the south. Cool bird!|
|Took the Euro type road called Painted Caves down to the coast. Pretty epic road and on the must-do list to climb back up|
|It was calm while I was up on the mountain. |
Once I was close to shore, I was surprised to see huge whitecaps on the water and palm trees blowing.
Yay, it was a strong tailwind back to the start
