There are two main areas
for your biking pleasure in Santa Barbara county. The Santa
Ynez mountain range divides the county into those two areas, one in
the Santa Maria, Lompoc and Santa Ynez valleys in the northwest, and
the other around Santa Barbara in the southeast.

else. In addition, there are several organizations that offer online
and printed material that will enrich your visits.
