Riding and camping Northern California and beyond, since 1965!
This month we're headed to Plaskett Creek Campground, down the Big Sur coastline past one of the areas recently re-opened after last winter's big landslides. Plaskett Creek is a great coastal campground located at 69345 Cabrillo Hwy, Big Sur, CA 93920. We have Group site 3. For those that don't want to cook their meal in camp, there are a couple places to eat nearby. I'm not sure of their winter hours so call ahead.
We will be meeting at 8:00 AM for breakfast at the Fremont Black Bear Diner.
Don't miss this event, the ride down to the coast, once we clear the Bay Area, is fantastic!
Winter meeting hours will be in effect: 4:00 P.M. start time
But wait, there's more! We have now set up an open house at Wunderlich America. Expect a nice visit of their facility and lunch! It doesn't get better than that.

Gas up and get ready for a really great SSBR. This month we're looking at a pretty spectacular ride through the Peninsula, and thanks to John Ellis for submitting this one. These roads are classics but I'll bet there's a few that we haven't been on. So come on out, invite your buddies, and let's ride! We'll finish up at Alice's.

Call it what you want - Christmas, Hanukkah, or another name all together, but we call it this: BMWNorcal's End of Year Member Party!
So save the date! This year we shall revel and enjoy a festive evening at Skates at the Bay, a great venue at the end of Berkeley Point, affording unique and stunning views of San Francisco Bay. The party begins at 5:00 PM for drinks (yes, a cash bar), with dinner at 6:30 PM. In addition to fine dining we will be enjoying our usual White Elephant gift exchange and there's no telling what gifts may turn up, except of course, a certain tool kit! So start thinking of that "special" gift you want to share and register for this last get-together of the year!
This year the club is covering half the cost of the dinner.
This month our SSBR will showcase the great riding of West Marin. We start at the Bayside Cafe in Sausalito and head to Point Reyes and end at Rancho Nicasio for lunch. We will have a stop at the summit of Mt Tamalpais, and another at the Point Reyes Lighthouse. Both stops afford great views with a short hike.

This month's Member Meeting / Campout is at the lovely Salt Point State Park! We've got the Warren Group Site within the Gerstle Campground. We can expect a mild climate and the camping is in a sheltered spot with a fire ring. Life will be good!
The ride starts at the Suisun City Black Bear Diner, and as usual we'll meet there by 8:00 AM for a hearty breakfast. Just what we'll need to fortify us for the ride ahead. Don't want to eat? Be there by 9:00 AM to join in on the ride.
It's time! Death Valley beckons and we must ride! Are you up for the adventure? There is no organized club ride down from the Bay Area, but get together with friends and ride your own adventure...
Note - this year we are a week earlier than usual.
