On Saturday June 19th, I will be leading a ride to the Penny Bar in McKittrick. We will meet at Pappy’s parking lot at 8:30 am, have the ride brief at 8:45 am, and head out at 9 am. The plan is to take Highway 166 east to the park in New Cuyama where we will stop and use the restrooms, possibly shed some clothes if it is hot, hydrate, etc. Leaving the park, we will continue west on Highway 166 to Maricopa where we head north on Highway 33 to Taft where we will stop for some gas. After that, we will continue through the land of never-ending oil wells till we get to our lunch stop at the Penny Bar.
I doubt there is anyone left who has not been there yet, so I will just say that it is a unique little diner, in the middle of nowhere, that serves up some pretty good food. Patti arranged for us to get the little room in the back for our group. After lunch we hit the road on Highway 58 west and immediately hit some nice twisties as we head out of town and then on for some nice scenic back country traveling all the way to Santa Margarita. We will stop at the park and that is the end of the ride.
