This month we are heading out for a fun spin up in the North Bay - starting at The Fremont Cafe in Sonoma. Expect some fun riding and some questionable camaraderie.
Breakfast at 8, hit the road at 9.
Route details to follow.
Come on out and join BMW NorCal for a 2-day, 110 mile off-road event through Mendocino National Forest! Riders will enjoy great self-guided riding on National Forest service roads, with single-track options for those wanting a little more adventure. The optional routes will include both skill and navigational challenges. Included with the $45.00 registration fee: .gpx navigation files, a sag wagon for your gear, a Saturday night campout with “chuck-wagon” style dinner, and a Sunday breakfast.
The fine print:
Plan to arrive Friday afternoon/evening to check-in.
Friday night camping is “no-host”, you’ll need to pay your campsite fee ($8-$14 range). And for dinner Friday, you’re on your own, but there will be folks cooking out at the campsite. Check with Buddy Scauzzo for the specifics of what's happening Friday night. You can also find groceries in Upper Lake or restaurants if you prefer.
Riders depart from Middlecreek Campground Saturday AM for Gray Pines Group Campground, Stonyford. At the campground riders will be treated to a chuck wagon style dinner and cold beverages. Day 1 is approximately 60 miles. The Sag Wagon will bring your gear.
After breakfast Sunday, riders will navigate back to Middlecreek Campground, approximately 50 miles. There they retrieve their gear from the Sag Wagon & head home.
This event is limited to 60 riders but there will be a waitlist in the event of cancellations.
There will be a mandatory stream crossing.
The entire ride can be done on the National Forest service roads, or riders can take optional trails. The optional trails will include hill ascents and descents, ruts and possibly mud. The optional trails require intermediate to advanced off-road riding skills. All riders must ride in groups of at least two.

Join us this month for another great camping destination with some great riding on the Sonoma Coast! And what could be better than riding and camping? How about an election? Yep, it's time again for Members in good standing to vote in your Board of Directors for the next year. And just when you thought things couldn't get any better, how about a great bbq cookout by the Tour Captain, the Sausage Meister, a Viking, and a few others? You will be hard pressed to have a better time this side of the Mexican border! But, let's try. To raise the bar a little, we are adding an adventure option to the meeting ride, one with some dirt for folks that want to mix it up a little- weather permitting of course. Check out the two Rever routes below.

It's October again so break out your lederhosen, grab your stein, and get ready for some fun! This year's Oktoberfest General Meeting and campout is back at Liberty Glen campground. Located in the arid hills above over the lovely Lake Sonoma, this campground feels remote but is ideally situated to the Bay Area and is only accessible by great motorcycle roads. So bring your appetite for fun Sonoma County riding as well as a great German influenced dinner and cold drink, you're not going to want to miss this one...
For this Oktoberfest the Board of Directors and some members are cooking and putting on the spread for the Membership.
Dinner for members is free! But in order to be confirmed for the dinner, you must register by end of day, Friday, October 19th.
Non members, add $15 to the camping fee for dinner.
