Bike Night in Bakersfield

Bike Night in Bakersfield, CA occurs on Wednesday nights at Chuy's Mexican Grill on Rosedale Hwy. Sponsored by 98.5 The Fox, a local radio station, the parking lot begins to fill with chrome and steel around 6:30pm.

On our recent visit to Bakersfield, we headed out to enjoy the company of other riders, get a glimpse of some motorcycles, and get our fill of chips and beer, all while grooving to some classic 80's tunes.
