WORK THE TRAILS: The Santa Barbara Mountain Bike Trail Volunteers spend more time working front-country trails than anyone, so why not join them in their effort to make routes stronger and safer? On June 2, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., they’ll be working Gaviota State Park for the first time in a decade, and they want you to join them. On July 8, they’ll do the same for Tequepis Trail atop the Santa Ynez Mountains. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and sunscreen, and bring your own gloves, snacks, and water, but be rewarded with S.B. Chicken Ranch when the work is done. See
