Riding and camping Northern California and beyond, since 1965!


Welcome to the 49er Rally! 

The 49er Rally is the BMW Club of Northern California's annual rally with 47 years of tradition and predating the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America's (MOA) National Rally. Last year we had over 500 Riders in attendance. 

Admission includes four nights of grassy camping, hot showers, great self guided GS and street rides, tons of events and seminars, live music, and a lot of fabulous motorcycle people!

This is the best BMW motorcycle Rally of the year!

We offer great self guided road and GS routes for you to explore. Head out solo or sign up with others. Never a dull day on this 49er Rally!

GS Clinic

Take your riding skill to the Next Level

Come learn or brush up on your off-road skills at our GS Clinic, lead by pro BMW trainer/coach Lance Thomas (Formerly of RawHyde Adventures.) Lance believes that proper off-road technique is born from proper training. To that end, he has created a curriculum designed to grant riders a simple, achievable ladder of skills.


Daily Events

Challenge yourself! Don’t miss out on the traditional English Trials and the snail speed “Slow Race” events! Lots of fun! Sign -ups required. If you’re feeling lucky join us on the 50/50 raffles and the Poker Run! And don't forget about the loads of raffle prizes. 

Ride an Airhead? This year look for a beefed up Airhead presence as the Airheads Beemer Club will be moving in to Airhead Central. Bring your airhead or just questions, there's always some sort of airhead clinic or repair going on...
