Bike down along the Ventura River

My wife and I load our bikes on the bus and ride down the trail. We like to eat brunch at the Ojai Valley Inn. Bring plenty of water and plan to end your ride in Pierpont.

We don't have racing bikes, just standard street bikes, so it took us 2 hours to cycle from Ventura to Ojai, but the path is terrific. The views are beautiful once you get out of the industrial area of Ventura. The grade is gradual but you are going uphill the whole way. Once in Ojai you have your choice of... More

Decided to try the Ventura to Ojai bike path on a nice August Sunday morning. The temperature at the Ventura trailhead was a nice breezy 72 degrees at 10:30am and almost a bit cool but bike shorts and T-shirt worked just fine. The bike path is well marked and well maintained, the ride up to Ojai is a very gradual... More

I'm 72 years old and don't ride a bike any more, but I do love to walk. This trail is great whether you start in the Ojai Valley or at the Ventura Beach! I can manage a mile or two, so I usually try to pace myself and just enjoy whatever I see along the way. People are friendly and... More

Because we have been located at the head of this trail since it was built, I have a ton of valuable feedback. It's a destination for many who come from miles away, plus locals alike. Get your bike water bottle filled for free with Kangen Alkaline ionized water. Enagic SD501 water ionizer is hooked up at our store. Open 9-6... More

This ride is flat, wide bike path, minimal lights and stops with cool ocean breezes. 20 miles round trip. Long stretches to hammer if that's your thing. Park in the Mrs Olsen parking lot at Harbor Blvd and W Channel Island Blvd. Ride North along Harbor Blvd to Beachmont St. (Lt), (Rt) Seaview Ave, (Lt) Peninsula St, (Rt) Pierpont Blvd,... More

Cycled from Ventura to Ojai, hired bikes from Bike Depot, which is near the start of the path, we managed the ride there, coffee & back in 4 hours. Great easy cycle path,

I'm a Native of Ventura - and this is definitely one of the best ways to experience this part of Ventura County. For those that are not avid bicyclists, I'd suggest starting up in the Ojai Valley and riding "downhill." Pace yourself. This use to be a railroad line.

Trail was part of the Mountains2Beach Half Marathon we were running the next day and we had brought our bikes to check it out. We only went up and back the first 10 miles of the trail to save ourselves for the race. Part of the national Rail to Trails network that has bike trails on former railroad beds, the... More
