This is a ride very similar to the Let’s Get Twisted ride in April just because I love Rice and Courser Canyons. But WAIT! There’s more fun through Mesa Grande and Wynola too. If you love twisties like me, I can promise you this will be a FUN ride.

Brad's Brunch Ride
Meet: 9:00AM

Come out and ride to Cafe 67 in Lakeside, and join me for brunch! We’ll start out with a short freeway blast to the coast, head north up the coast to Del Mar. Then head east around Lake Hodges before we go by the Zoo’s Wild Animal Park.

Then we’ll beat the heat and climb up HWY 78 through Ramona, and down Wildcat Canyon, just when it starts to heat-up, we’ll stop at Cafe 67 to enjoy some fine food! This will only be about a 70mi. two hour ride, so we can try to beat the heat.

This route will include some “twisties”, and is a good route for all to enjoy, short, fun, and hopefully, not to hot! Hope to see you at Kearny H.D. with a full tank, ready to rock!

Back Road Byway
Meet: 9:00AM

Come along and catch some zen moments on this epic tour of some of the lesser traveled back country roads in the Julian area. We'll see some of our favorite twisties, we'll see tree covered roads and a lake. We'll also experience slow tight turns through the pine covered foothills. The last time I went through this area, I saw 5 deer, a wild turkey (other than JR), and a possum. Our destination offers a virtual potpourri of Asian cuisine in the form of an all you can eat buffet.

Thursday, September 20th to 23rd, 2018 Meet Location Route Map
LONG DISTANCE RIDE: Sequoia National Park
Meet: 8:00AM

***DATE CHANGE FOR THIS RIDE***

Have you ever wondered what is on the other side of those big mountains when we travel up the 395 through Lone Pine on our Death Valley trips? Well come join me to find out. www.visitsequoia.com/National-Park

On this four day Long Distance Ride we will be leaving on September 20th and returning September 23rd, 2018

We will be staying at the Best Western in Porterville (1-559-781-7411) or Click here for the Best Western Website near the park. We have a total of 20 rooms reserved but they need confirmations by December 1. Room rates are: $99.00 for a single and $99.00 for a double. When making reservations use the code SDHOG.

Day 1 - Travel to Porterville 15N to 395N to 14N to 178NW to 155 to 65 into Porterville on this route we will pass Lake Isabella which should be absolutely beautiful that time of year.

Day 2 - We enter the park and visit the west side of the park. Lots of awesome twisty roads and huge trees. We will see the General Grant, a Sequoia, and lots of other really big Redwoods then onto the General Sherman. The General Sherman is a 2,100 year old giant Sequoia that is 275 feet tall, and weighs in at 2.7 million pounds with a trunk diameter of 100 feet. If you have never seen these before, and even if you have, you will no doubt be in awe.

Day 3 - We visit the east side of the park, Kings Canyon. Again, there are a lot of twisty roads. We're talking a lot of twisty roads. I mean so twisty you might be begging for a straight stretch. We will pass over and around the river that flows through the park and have lunch at the lodge. Day three is a good riding day to run some roads you might not have done, or if you have, you will love doing again.

Day 4 - Homeward bound.

The trip is for riders who can do the long distance and twisty roads. I'm not joking about the twisty part.

YAHOO & BBQ
Meet: 9:00AM

Sorry JR for stealing your signature phrase, but there is no better way to describe this ride. Join me on an absolutely enjoyable ride. We will ride through Ramona to a comfort stop at Santa Ysabel. Then on to the 79 to Hemet enjoying Wilson Valley and Sage Roads with lots of scenic twisties thrown in for fun. We will eat at The City of Hemet's Sweet Baby Jane's BBQ which I believe you will find enjoyable. For those of you that just can't seem to get enough wind therapy, like me, I will be leading another scenic ride back via the 74. The scenery on this return ride is simply amazing. If you choose to follow me back to Santa Ysabel via this route, I ask that you refrain from drinking any alcoholic beverages at all. If you do not wish to join us on the return trip you may of course do a freeway blast back home. This is an all day ride, but I promise you will have a blast.
