Ok, was a little more difficult to get my schedule together but finally I can make plans.
This ride, because will be a little longer and we need to enjoy it , I will make it a 2 days ride, with staying overnight close to Lake Isabella, campground or motel (I will camp overnight on the river side).
Saturday July 27 at 07.30 we will meet in the Chevron Gas Station on 109 south Rainbow blvd right at the intersection with 95.
At 08.00 sharp we will spin the wheel on the way to California : US 95 – I15 – At Barstow we will take the 58 and then the 395 and finally the 178 till Lake Isabella.
Assuming that everyone will have breakfast at home or will grub something from Burger King in the gas station, we will stop just for gas, coffee and water every 100-130 miles.
Lunch will be served in Mountain Mesa , with a view on Lake Isabella.
After lunch, we will go to visit The Giants and come back around 40 miles for camping on the side of Kern River.
If you don’t feel like camping you can stay at a motel/hotel in Lake Isabella, Kernville, Wofford Heights but you need to take care of your booking.
For the dinner we have 2 options : 1). Eating at a tavern in Kernville , 2). Make a BBQ in the camping spot ( I will grill it but someone need to bring a small grill cause I don’t have one.)
Next morning , around 8.30 am we will head back to Kernville to have coffee and make a full gas tank .
By 09.00 am when everyone will be ready , we will start our climb on Sherman Pass Road and the road back home. (See pictures)
The weather for this weekend look’s amazing but overnight expect a little cold weather, probably around 55 F. I’m pretty sure that with the right amount of whisky and a little fire camp we will be more than fine.
The total trip will be around 660 miles, and will cost around $70 in gas, $40 in food and whatever you will want to spend extra.
What you will need to have with you : Ten, sleeping bag, one extra pair of pants and some long sleeves , flip-flops, PEPER SPRY !!!, a knife, one of us an axe , and your on bottle of whisky J.
NOTE : THE EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE, YOU SPENT AS MUCH AS YOU WANT/NEED/HAVE. You are full responsible for your gear (so bring whatever you think you will need). The purpose of this event is to have fun and create memories. Everyone is invited regardless your type of bike/club colors/ race/ and whatever reasons people can find. Nobody cares about that, we just want to ride and have a great time.
