May 13 - 14, 2006 - Mother's Day Weekend

Overnight Ride to San Simeon - Hearst Castle

Meet at the McDonalds just west of I-5 on Benjamin Holt Drive in Stockton at 10:00 AM.
From there we take the country roads to Tracy and down Hwy 33 to Los Banos and lunch at
the Wool Growers Basque Restaurant in Los Banos. Gas up and head to Hollister to Hwy 25.
Cut over to King City for gas then head down Hwy 101 then over to the coast and San Simeon.

There's something unique about this road and I think I've finally realized what it is. It's the length really. That unimpeded length. It's but another deserted stretch of pavement that's become a playground of sorts for motorcyclists of any persuasion. You might even say this road has it's own fan base. A road built with motorcyclists in mind.

Hwy 25 headed south out of Hollister is probably one of California's poster-child motorcycle roads. It's one of these forgotten roads surrounded by bigger and better well traveled rides.

I-5 to the east, Hwy 101 to the west. In between is this little gem and any motorcyclist will love this road!.

This is JUST the ride on Saturday. The return ride is up Hwy 1 at Noon on Sunday, oh boy!!
