Welcome to the 2021 Parker Gang Tour of Kentucky!
Update: The photo gallery for the 2021 ride is ready.
Guido and I have been working hard to put together a great week of riding and finding fun places in Kentucky to visit – with a lot of help from Ed.
The get-together is planned for Saturday, June 5th through Friday, June 11th.
We will be staying at the Quality Inn in Cadiz, Kentucky from June 5th to the 7th, checking out on the morning of June 8th.
Here is the reservation information for the Quality Inn in Cadiz, KY. You will need to call the hotel directly and tell them your reservation is for the Parker Gang group. Making a reservation online will not get you the special group rate.
