" The road goes on forever, and the party never ends." - The Highway Men
There aren't many things better than the Fall riding season in California. Pair that with good friends, good music, and sleeping under the stars and you've pretty much found paradise.
On October 7-8, Iron & Resin will be hosting the sixth annual group ride & campout - The Hooligan Hoedown. Ride in and meet us there at Bandit Town USA, a remote outpost located in the exact center of California. Whether you're headed south from San Francisco or north from Ventura, you'll find Bandit Town surrounded by the beautiful California countryside.
Group camping will be provided and we encourage all who are there to spend the night. A barbecue dinner will get things heated up as the bands start to take to the stage. This will be a night to remember with plenty of stories to share with those willing to make the trek. We'll be jamming to the tunes of honky tonk all night long (Band announcement coming soon). So get your bike ready, grab your girl (or guy) and dust off your sleeping bag and head into the hills for a weekend to remember.
