1.) By the time you read this, the Mob Shop will have a new, more modern shuttle. The old one worked just fine to get us back to Ojai.
2.) We thought this was a restroom, but the history plaque revealed this as the Ojai jail that was in use until 1979. Doesn’t look comfy!
3.) We were happy to arrive and check out the food possibilities on the pier. We opted for fish tacos while waiting for the return shuttle.
4.) Not all of the views are scenic, but they are interesting. Riding through this oil-production area is an example of that fact.
5.) The Mob Shop has a rental operation at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. It offers pedal bikes, but the Mob Shop will deliver e-bikes there.
price includes an electric bike rental and a shuttle ride back
from the beach. This ride is at least 15 miles and up to 20
depending on what you look at along the trail. It is rated as a
ride suited for novice to expert cyclists.
Another road option is the two-hour, nine-mile East End
Valley tour that lets you explore the Ojai Valley and learn
some of the history. This tour accommodates up to 30 peo-
ple, and the pace is relaxed to allow time for photos and con-
versation. It is rated for riders from novice to expert, but there
is 800 feet of climbing. There is a $120 minimum. The rates
are $60 per person for two to six people and $50 per person
for seven or more.
For those with a dirt bent, there is the descent from the
Sulphur Mountain tour. The Mob Shop shuttle drops you off
at the top of Sulphur Mountain, and you let gravity do the rest
while you drop from 2300 to 400 feet while enjoying amazing
views. This tour is also for riders from novice to expert, and
the 10-mile tour will accommodate a maximum of 12 riders,
but there is the option to add a wine tasting to the trip. The
