    This month we're headed out to the awesome East Side of the Sierra! 

    Starting at the highly recommended Jim's Country Style in Pleasanton, we make our way over the scenic Sonora Pass, down CA-395 past Mono Lake to the Mammoth Mountain RV Park. It's a bit of a stretch to get out there but the ride is totally worth it. There is no early bird site for Friday due to lack of interest at this site.

    If you have any questions or comments, please email Nick Gloyd at tourcaptain@bmwnorcal.org

    2017 BMW Club of Northern California Range of Light Gypsy Tour

    The start point of this year’s Range of Light is the Calaveras County Fairgrounds at Angels Camp, located in the historic 49er gold country of California.

    This event is open to all motorcyclists and features spectacular and scenic riding, showcasing some of the best roads and stunning beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountain range of Northern California.

    The routes on Saturday and Sunday cover nearly 300 miles and offer some fun GS options, as well as decent shortcuts for those not interested in riding the full route (the shortcuts are over great roads too).

    Each night the ride ends at a fairground with hot showers, cold drinks, catered dinners, grassy camping, and best of all, great camaraderie!  In addition, you'll have a SAG wagon to haul soft sided luggage, a fantastic Poker Run and plenty of raffle prizes!

    The Range of Light 2017 is an event not to be missed, register today!  For more information contact the Nick Gloyd, ROL Chair at rolchair@bmwnorcal.org
