The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol will be providing intersection control throughout the courses. Please follow their directions. At unmanned intersections and on the route, please obey all applicable vehicle code laws.
These roads are open to normal traffic, but are generally lightly traveled due to the rural nature of the area. Riders who violate vehicle code laws, ride unsafely or are rude, discourteous or dangerous to other riders (or to law enforcement personnel) will NOT be allowed to enter any future SCOR events and face ticketing by law enforcement personnel.
