Join us for the Poppy Reserve Ride!
Join us for the Monthly Meeting & Ride to on Saturday, March the 12th, that will take us about 150 miles. Starting at Country Harvest Cafe in Moorpark at 08:00am, our Ride Captain, Danny, will lead us safely through the roads and have us back around 4:00pm.

Starting in Moorpark, we will take a beautiful ride through Grimes to the 126. That will lead us to Lake Hughes Road through the Angeles Forest. Just past Lake Hughes and leading us to the Antelope Valley National Poppy Reserve.

Each spring, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve comes alive with the seasonal surprises of the Mojave Desert Grassland habitat. The duration and intensity of colors and scents vary from year to year. The wildflower season generally lasts from as early as mid-February through May, with a variety of wildflowers creating a mosaic of color that changes daily.

Eight miles of trails through the gentle rolling hills, including a paved section for wheelchair access, make the park a wonderful place to hike and explore any season. Get away from the city and relax in the quietude of the countryside, with the birds singing and hawks gliding silently overhead. Benches located along the trails make good places to sit quietly and watch for wildlife, such as meadow larks, lizards, and gopher snakes. If you're lucky, you may spot a coyote or bobcat. Numerous burrows around the trails may shelter mice, gophers, kangaroo rats, beetles, scorpions, or others.

Poppy Reserve or The Rock Inn-- or anything else-- it's all good. Any ride is a good ride.

Had to change trip to The Rock Inn, not enough Poppies this year to justify
