This will be an all day ride to Parkfield, CA (south of King City).

We will stop at the James Dean memorial, at the very spot where two tectonic plates converge. And rumor has it that we can find some great BBQ here right along the San Andreas Fault. Hopefully, we'll enjoy the baking without the shaking!

Early morning will be cool but it will start to warm up by mid morning. Maybe hot in the afternoon. Bring water and snacks

• There is safety in numbers.
• The routes try to take us on roads less traveled. Some of these roads might be a little rough (in need of repairs).
