River Road/Carmel Valley Run - Sunday August 29, 2021


Your Hosts For The Event:

Mick Brown and Vickie Casacca

Date of the Event:

Sunday August 29, 2021

This run is one of our club favorites as Mick and Vickie always put together a great day. The run will start in Salinas and head west on Highway 68 to River Road and follow it south down to Arroyo Seco and around to Carmel Valley Road. There will be some twisties and there is a section that is only one lane. Once we get to Carmel Valley we will meet at the Carmel Valley Community Park at 25 Ford Road where we will group back up for some fun and games (details to come). 

That is where the run will end and you are free to either head home or have lunch. There are many places in the area to eat such as the Trailside Cafe, Cafe Rustica and Mick and Vickie's favorite local dive bar The Running Iron. There are also many wineries in the area that are open for tasting.

In addition nearby is the Moto Talbott. Motorcycle Museum on 4 East Carmel Valley Road. A wonderful collection of classics. The fee to enter is only $10.


This run is also a FUNDRAISER for the Salinas Circle for Children! A wonderful organization to help children with special needs in Monterey county. The club is donating $250.00 so bring your checkbook to the run and hopefully all of us can match it. Check out their website below.


We are going to have TWO meet up times!

Our normal meetup spot in Salinas  is the Starbucks/Lucky parking lot at 1186 South Main Street. However, on Sundays they hold a weekly Cars and Coffee meetup and show. It starts at 8 and goes until 10. So, Mick and Vickie will be there at 8am and try and save an area of our group. Should be a great way to start the day. Show off our cars and also check out the many others that show up.

Cars & Coffee Meeting Time (if you want to get here early):

8:00 am
