Albuquerque – Santa Rosa – Albuquerque
Ride to Santa Rosa for the 11th Annual Route 66 Festival- 224 miles
September 10, 2011
There were several things happening this weekend that interested me, our State Fair, Pie Festival in Pie Town and the Rt 66 Festival in Santa Rosa. After much back and forth, I decided Friday night to try out the Festival in Santa Rosa. We didn’t need an early start because no events started before 10:00. The temperature this morning was much cooler, real fall riding weather. The only problem, we spent the day riding in the rain.
