A Quiet Alternative: Bike Paths in Ventura County
My wife loves spin class and is good at it. She has been encouraged to become an instructor. But she is very reluctant to ride with me out on the road. Primarily, she is worried about road traffic. I imagine that some people in Southern California worry about riding on the roads along with cars and trucks. A separated path for bicycles and pedestrians, designated a Class I bike path by the California DMV, are a calm, quiet alternative for some cyclists.
Ventura County has around 60 miles of Class I bike paths throughout the county, in all of the county cities, except for Port Hueneme, and in unincorporated areas. The City of Ventura has 20 miles of Class I bike paths within its borders. I have ridden on many of them over the years, and I will describe the longer trails that I have been on.
