Join Ted Simon on Sunday, August 28th, for a celebratory motorcycle ride down the iconic Redwood Highway in northern California.

Every day is a good day for riding with friends through beautiful scenary, but August 28th will be a particularly special one. The ride is a combined celebration of Ted Simon's 80th birthday back in May, the long-awaited completion of his new book Rolling Through the Isles, and the launch of the Foundation in his name. A memorable way to enjoy some northern Californian roads, it will also be an opportunity to talk to Ted about his vision for the Foundation and Jupiter's Travellers.

Starting from Benbow at 12pm (not 2pm as originally advertised), the route will follow the stunning Redwood Highway (US-101) south for around 50 miles to Longvale, before turning north east on to CA-162 for a further 30 twisty miles towards Ted's home town of Covelo.
