Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
Celebrate Vaisakhi with us with a ride to the Stockton, CA Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan! We’re going to commemorate our biggest celebration on the Sikh calendar with a ride to the oldest Gurdwara in the United States!
This Sunday (4/17), we’re riding from the Gurdwara Gur Nanak Prakash in Tracy to the first Gurdwara in the United States, the Gurdwara Sahib Sikh Temple of Stockton, for their Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan and celebrations. We then return to Tracy. It is a 50 mile flat ride round trip. The Stockton Nagar Kirtan is scheduled for 12 PM and we will plan to arrive before the beginning of the procession. We will stay at the Gurdwara for no more than an hour and depending upon group preference.
Please arrive by 9 AM at Gurdwara Gur Nanak Prakash in Tracy and be prepared to ride by 9:30 AM. We will plan to arrive at Stockton Gurdwara around 11 AM. Addresses are below.
The Stockton Gurdwara will serve as our only official rest stop, however there will be some services at points along the route. We will do our best to keep the group together, but we may segment the group depending on pace. So, please ensure you have the following:
- Fully operational and maintained road bike.
- Two bottles with electrolyte/energy solution.
- Portable snacks (energy bars/gels/chews etc.)
