28th BKCA7 Annual Locke Ride

Saturday, June 22nd, 2024

11AM

 

This year's Locke Ride to "Al the Wop's" in the historic town of Locke, on the California Delta will be Saturday. June 22nd, 2024 departing from the Shell Gas Station located at 2701 Hillcrest Avenue, Antioch, California 94531. Members and guests will meet at 11AM with kickstands up (KSU) at 11:30AM giving us ample time to ride across the Antioch Bridge (no toll collected, Fastrack or Invoice Only now) for the scenic ride on Highway 160 to historic Locke California and "Al the Wop's". Woz has warned them that approximately twenty members from BKCA7, friends, colleagues and motorcycle enthusiasts will be having lunch the Saturday after Father's Day in June, 2024. The restaurant opens at 11:30AM. The bar opens at 10AM.

 

For those who wish to ride alone or if meeting at the Shell Station on Hillcrest is not possible this will also be a "Destination Ride" meaning that you are welcome to meet us at "Al the Wop's" at approximately noon, our expected arrival time factoring in the Antioch Bridge, parking, and a leisurely ride on the Delta Levee Road (CA 160).

While in Locke, you can visit the BKCA7 Memorial ceramic tile(s) that are in the Memorial Park on Main Street in Locke. These ceramic tiles commemorate the start of the Annual BKCA7 Locke Rides starting in 1996. BKCA7 has two tiles there commemorating our history in the historic town of Locke. There is also a museum in Locke worthy of a visit as well as several tourist businesses on Main Street.

Please notify Woz at Michael@Wozniak.com if you are planning on attending so BKCA7 can prepare for the number of riders and guests attending. A full tank of gas is not a problem as we're meeting at a gas station. Please make sure you have your Fastrack ready for the Antioch Bridge.

 

Ride with Pride
