*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Enjoy a one hour, commuter free drive, to our most easterly 'Our Favorite Kids' ride. As our longest OFK ride, it traverses three counties but ironically has the shortest route sheet - go south 26 miles, turn left, go 8.6 miles, u-turn and return. The Junction Bar and Grill will be open. I'll enjoy a Pepsi float (alcohol and OFK rides don't mix). Cool, mineral water is also available at Adobe Springs on Del Puerto Canyon Rd. The day is forecast to be be comfortably warm and the green grass will be browning. There should be wildflowers and plenty of wildlife. Driving from San Jose take 680 north; exit rt on Hw 84 (Vallecitos Rd); turn rt at Isabel to stay on Vallecitos; changes to Holmes; rt on Concannon Bl; rt on Tesla Rd; rt on Mines Rd; at Del Valle Road turn left to stay on Mines Road. Park in dirt area on the right, 1/4 mile past intersection.
