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.

The cities of Solvang and Santa Barbara have visitor kiosks where you can pick up information about biking and everything else. In addition, there are several organizations that offer online and printed material that will enrich your visits.

The map on the right shows the cities that have visitor kiosks or online information.

Phone numbers are area code 805.
