Riding on a bike in Ojai
by Jennifer Lloyd
Watching the birds
The best way to discover Ojai is on bicycle. My first stop is at the Mob Shop to have them make an adjustment on my brakes, than check around to see if there are any of the new electric bicycles but although they look nice I prefer the traditional bicycles, guys lets burn some fat please. I will ride over to Bart’s Books, a great place to relax and read some interesting books. After that, I will challenge my muscles and ride all the way to Ojai Valley Land of Conservancy Meadows Preserve. I make a quick visit to the wet land to see if the migratory birds have shown up. After that I ride to Krotona Istitute of theosophy library, another magic place where I can find all sorts of books on wisdom traditions, healing, mysticism, nature, and spirituality. After that I need to stop home to get my car and drive straight to Farmer and the Cook, one of my favorite place to have a breakfast. I always choose the breakfast burrito. It is delicious and what I love the most at Farmer and the Cook is that all the ingredients they use are organic.
Majestic Oak Winery is another lovely place I like to visit too, sample the latest release, enjoy a nice conversation with friends and then go to the Ojai Art Center to see a live show. After that together with my husband we like to end our day at Osteria Monte Grappa for a nice romantic dinner.
This is for me the best way to end the day
