I have heard some people talk about a track that is just off of the 101 near Ventura, but I have not been able to confirm whether or not this is true. Does anybody know if there is indeed a track or a place to ride around there?? Also, I am a student at UCSB and am living in Isla Vista. I don't know anyone else who rides around here, and I am looking for someone to ride with. If you have any info or you are in the area and want to ride, drop me an email at sraser@mail.com
Thanks!

THERE IS A PRACTICE AREA OFF 101 JUST BEFORE YOU GET TO THE RINCON BUT IT IS FOR KIDS,I HAVE HEARD THAT ADULTS WILL GET CHASED OUT AS IT ISN'T A REAL LEGAL RIDING AREA.THERE IS A LEGAL PRACTICE TRACK OFF THE DIVIDE PEAK OHV TRAIL WHICH YOU GET TO ON EAST CAMINO CIELO.

i wouldn't mind going up to check out that divid epeak place, but i am not exactly sure how to get there. if you wouldn't mind, could you maybe post some directions? i would be coming from Isla Vista. also, you say that they don't really approve of adults riding at that place near rincon......how would they feel about an 18 year old? i just thought i'd check it out. thanks again for th ehelp.

Thanks again for the directions. I actually went up to the divide peak area on Sunday, and it was a pretty cool place to ride. I plan on going up there a lot more often, and if you are ever interested in making a trip up there, let me know. The best way ould be through email.

If you followed Frank's directions then you drove right by my house on Sunday. :)

Aparently if you continue straight on the fireroad (don't turn to go to the track), then you will eventually run into a pond. The route is REALLY rocky and the last time I headed that way I had to turn back. I'd like to try that way again sometime.

We'll let you know if we head up that way anytime soon. Maybe we can meet up there.
