Rest DayI rode the van to Santa Barbara. I decided to have my bike shipped from a shop there to avoid the rush at the Ventura shop at the end of today's ride. I took a walking tour of the city's historic landmarks. The Santa Barbara Courthouse was built in 1929. Its Spanish-Moorish architecture is striking and the view of the city and surrounding landscape from the tower was excellent.
Several of us took the train from Santa Barbara to Ventura including cyclists who wanted to shorten the 84 mile day. The modes of transportation I have enjoyed on this trip include bicycle, van, car, boat, bus, plane and train.
