Well, our favorite outdoor excursion in Santa Barbara would be the I Bike Santa Barbara single-day bike tour, if we do say so ourselves.
But there are so many other fun things to do in Santa Barbara that we would be remiss not to mention those too…
CycleMAYnia: A month long celebration of all things bicycle related in Santa Barbara. A variety of rides, classes, clinics, and screenings abound. Check their website for the schedule. http://cyclemaynia.ning.com/
Buellton Brew Fest — May 11: Enjoy craft beers, live music, and food. What more do you need to know? How about unlimited tastings with ticket. Takes place in River View Park. For more details http://www.buelltonbrewfest.com
Comedy Hideaway: One of Santa Barbara’s best kept secrets and greatest values. Every Thursday night national headliners from Comedy Central and HBO go for laughs at Petrini’s. The locals in Goleta know about this, now you do too. Tickets at sbcomedy.com
Nite Moves: Every Wednesday night. Do a 5k run, a 1k swim, or both. Friendly competition. Whichever race you choose, you will finish to a local craft beer, dinner, great live music, ice cream, and raffle prizes. A gorgeous course along Ledbetter Beach; a very family friendly event. This is why we live in Santa Barbara. www.runsantabarbara.com
