On Tap: This Weekend’s Cycling Events


If you are looking for a good excuse to spend a few days in the Santa Barbara area and race your bike, then this weekend’s events are tailor made for you!

On Saturday,  the Santa Barbara County Road Race takes place in Santa Maria on a 14 mile rolling loop.  Distances range from 29 – 85 miles depending on your race category. With a $2,000 prize list,  a custom winners jersey and SoCal Cup points up for grabs, the racing should be hard fought and exciting.
