World Famous 33 Highway
The 33 Highway north of Ojai and Ventura is a supreme motorocycling road. It can be found off the 101 just North of Ventura. Some call it the backyard of Ventura. On any weekend you'll find a plethora of motorcycles up and down this road, and along all the stops on the way; the Deer Lodge, The Place, Reyes Creek Tavern, and the Buckhorn in New Cuyama just to name a few.
The road is ideal in the predictability of the turns; nothing seems to come out of nowhere. The middle section has banked swithbacks for several miles that you can find a steady pace to just get lost in the ride, without feeling in over your head.
Passing the Deer Lodge in Ojai, the road starts ascending through mellow twisties and 3 tunnels along a river that it crosses over several times, before opening up with a wide left hander that accelerates upwards of a ton, before easily coming down to a couple of smooth turns to prepare you for a relatively wide hairpin that is the entrance to the middle section of predicable 60mph+ mild switchbacks up to a dirt overlook, which we affectionately call the "donut". (It looks like a donut on a satellite map). It is a great place for photos, and one of the last places with strong cellphone signal.
