Great ride. Uphill to Ojai, but great downhill back. Must stop at the pizza place in downtown Ojai. It's the only one.

I liked all the trees along the way. It's nice that you follow the road because it's very easy to find your way to Ojai. I had a great time riding through this area as it's so peaceful.
