Hello Riders, For those of you that went on the Fort Bragg/Skunk Train Ride, we all had a great time. For those of you that could not make it, well, here is what happened.
Saturday August 18th, we met at Shari’s at 8 am leaving at 8:30 with 11 Bikes and 13 Riders. We headed north on Highway 101 to Ukiah for our first rest stop at Chevron on Lake Mendocino Drive. Our second stop was at Geigers Market in Laytonville to pick up sandwiches. Then up 101 to Highway 271 to Leggett and the Drive Thru Tree where we took pictures and had a picnic lunch. After our lunch break, we took Highway 1 from Leggett to Westport-Union Landing for a photo or two and pee break. Heading down Highway 1 to Fort Bragg stopping at Cowlick’s ice cream for a treat, then off to the hotel (Seabird Lodge). After having cocktails and socializing, we walked down to Silvers at the Wharf for dinner, then off to bed.
Sunday August 19th, we took the Skunk Train Ride and visited the Model Train Museum, then off we headed home down Highway 1 to Highway 128 to Booneville where we stopped for lunch at The Buckhorn Restaurant. After lunch, we took more pictures, said our goodbyes and headed down to Cloverdale then home.
You could not have asked for a better ride with great people/friends and great roads! The weather was not too hot and we had fog on the way down the coast and in the morning. But overall it was a great trip! Thanks to those that came and sorry for those that did not. Hope to see you all next time!
