Parkfield Burger Run Retry (Again)

1730 Airline Hwy

Let's make a run down to the little town of Parkfield, Population 18! My cousins own the V6 ranch and run the Parkfield cafe and hotel. Not much of a town, but a great biker destination with twists and turns along the way and no traffic! Meet at the Hollister Starbucks and kickstands up at 10 AM. This is an advanced ride at a decent clip and it's well over 100 miles between gas stops. Top off in Hollister and head down Cienega, Highway 25, Jog left on HWY 198 to Parkfield Grade. On a clear day you can see the Sierras at the top. Down Parkfield Grade on a few miles of easy dirt assuming no recent rain. Lunch in Parkfield and Fillup in San Miguel. Those that want to cut out can take HWY 101 home or Head up Indian Valley to Highway 25 and homeward bound. Rain just won't stop, so moving to Saturday the 23rd!
