  • Departure Time: 8:45 am
  • Departure Point: Pappy’s Restaurant on Betteravia

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRE-RIDE BRIEFING AND THE DEPARTURE TIME HAS SLIPPED BY 30-MINUTES

WE ASK THAT YOU STILL SHOW UP EARLY SO WE CAN VERIFY YOUR RELEASE FORM

O – THIS IS AN OPEN RIDE SO ANYONE ON ANY BRAND OF BIKE CAN ATTEND HOWEVER, A RELEASE MUST BE COMPLETED ON THE NATION OF PATRIOTS WEBSITE BEFORE GOING ON THIS RIDE!

PLEASE ARRIVE 20 – 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE PRE-RIDE BRIEFING! (This will allow you time to visit other riders, use the restroom, fuel up, get a cup of coffee, etc.)

PLEASE BRING YOUR NATION OF PATRIOTS PATRIOT TOUR RELEASE FORM WITH YOU OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RIDE WITH THE GROUP.  THIS IS MANDATED FOR LIABILITY REASONS WITH NoP.

Ride Rating: Moderate

We will be taking the flag from Santa Maria to Salinas and the American Legion Post 31.

We will depart 8:45 am after the pre-ride briefing and verification of proof of registration with NoP. We will head north on Highway 101 to the Highway 46 west exit and make a stop for fuel and take a short break at the McChevron (McDonalds / Chevron Station).  From here we will head north once again on Highway 101 to King City taking the Broadway Exit and after exiting we will make a left turn travel under the Highway 101 overpass and stop at the Chevron Station for fuel and we will meet the group from ALR 31 out of Salinas.  They will be there close to 11:00 am which is why we slipped our departure time.  After we coordinate with them we will head out once again on Highway 101 to Salinas.  The exit we will be taking will be discussed before leaving the Chevron with the group.  Once at the ALR Post 31 we will transfer the flag to that group and they will be providing pizza’s and drink for us.

Our return trip will be south on Highway 101 to Highway 46 (McChevron) for fuel and a break before heading back to the Santa Maria area.

The return trip to the Santa Maria area will be the destination / termination point for this ride.

As a reminder you must fill out and complete the online release form and provide proof of that to me or you will not be riding with the group down……you can ride a mile or two behind us and this is like our Chapter rides…..it involves liabilities with Nation of Patriots.

THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE ON WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR YOU TO GO ON THIS RIDE.  THIS IS AS OF SUNDAY, JULY 10TH AND HAS BEEN CLARIFIED WITH EMAILS BETWEEN PHIL AND RICK BITZER, VP NoP.  YOU MUST COMPLETE THE PATRIOT TOUR RELEASE FORM FOUND BELOW OR YOUR PROOF OF REGISTRATION FROM THE NoP WEBSITE AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND THIS RIDE.  IF YOU DO NOT BRING THE FORM WITH YOU THEN YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RIDE WITH THE GROUP.  THIS IS FOR THE PROTECTION OF YOU AND NoP.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  IF YOU RODE ON DAY 1 AND NOW YOU PLAN ON RIDING ON DAY 2 YOU WILL NEED ANOTHER RELEASE FROM FROM NoP (Patriot Tour Release form or NoP website Registration / Release form).  THIS HAS BEEN CLARIFIED WITH NoP.
