    Get ready for an awesome campout on the North Coast! Our November Member meeting (pushed back a weekend due to Thanksgiving, is actually the first weekend in December) For this campout we will be at the Salt Point Group Campsite. And as you know, the North Coast has lots of great riding. We meet for breakfast at the Bayside Cafe at 8:00 AM or join us there at 9:00 AM for the ride. We depart for Mt Tam at 9 AM.  After that, we will ride up the coast then turn inland to drive by EuroCycle and stop for lunch and a beer pickup at Russian River Brewery.  We plan to be in camp no later than 3 PM.  The distance is 140 miles and about 4:15 total riding time. You can pick up supplies at the Safeway in Guerneville or the Ocean Cove campground store (limited selection though).  See you there!

    Also note that due to the shorter days the winter meeting time will be in effect: 4:00 P.M. start time.

     Starting point and route to be posted. Also note we have this campsite for two nights staring Friday January 28th.  


       

    Arroyo Seco Campground is a semi-rustic, but developed facility in California's westernmost national forest. It offers a great escape from bustling city life, into the mountain air and provides access to a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities.

    The campground offers views of the Ventana Wilderness mountain peaks and one small lake (water levels depend on the season). It is nestled into the hillside, surrounded by abundant shrubbery and large oak trees. It is situated next to the Arroyo Seco River at an elevation of about 1,200 feet. A variety of birds and wildlife make their home in the area.

    A splash of color greets visitors at the entrance gate, where a variety of plants in bloom. In the spring and fall, the leaves on the trees change to beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange, creating a beautiful scenic landscape. In the springtime, lupines bloom all around.

    The small non-body contact lake near the group campsites gives campers an edge on mountain fishing and small non-motorized boating. Anglers will find mostly bass and catfish in the lakes, and other species on occasion. A fishing license is required for visitors over 16 years of age. The nearby river offers a small beach where campers and day use visitors may wade and swim. All nearby bodies of water are dependent upon seasonal rain for levels to rise.

    You're not going to want to miss this one! For the February meeting we're heading down the iconic Big Sur Coastline to Plaskett Creek Campground. Plaskett Creek is a great coastal campground located at 69345 Cabrillo Hwy, Big Sur, CA 93920, and the ride down is always fantastic. This destination has great winter camping and we've got group sites 1 and 3 reserved for the Club. 

    The route and start location will follow. 

    Also note that due to the shorter days the winter meeting time will be in effect: 4:00 P.M. start time.

    Interested in riding Baja?

    Motorcycle travel in Baja is unexpectedly easy, inexpensive, and a fun, rewarding experience.

    We are in the planning stages of our annual Cross Border Ride. This ride is timed to end at the BMW NorCal Death Valley Campout in March.

    The Cross Border Ride is a casual ride, not a "guided" or tour group ride. Folks are paying their own way and ultimately responsible for their own navigation and lodging. We put together a loose travel itinerary of daily stops but folks travel in small groups or by themselves, meeting back up for lunch or local stops of interest, and of course where ever we are staying for the night. The folks that have been on the previous Cross Border Rides help the rest through the border crossings. Folks need to be comfortable with foreign travel, should have some comfort with spanish (or have a translation app), have their own maps, and know exactly where we are heading each day in case they are separated, etc. Folks also need to have medical conditions in control, this is a third world country and we travel through some remote areas. We travel mostly on paved roads but riders should expect some occasional off-pavement riding as well. March is a really great time to ride in Baja, warm but not yet hot. And the Gray Whales are usually still in the bays with their calves so whale watching is an option. 

    Click here for information on necessary documentation and border crossings. 

    The general plan is to meet near the border Saturday morning and head down the east side of Baja.  We will work our way down, arriving in  San Ignacio or Mulege on Monday March  21.  We will turn around and head north taking two days to get to Ensenada.  On Thursday will will take the scenic route to Joshua Tree and either camp out or hotel it in Twentynine Palms.  This make for a nice ride Friday to Furnace Creek. Of course plans may change based on weather, hotel availability and other factors. And of course riders can always opt for their own experience and leave and join the ride as they wish. 

    One critical piece to travel in Mexico is you need a passport.  If you don't have one, get one NOW! If you already have one, double check to make sure that it's still valid. Lead-times for passports or renewals are not quick, start now.

    We are looking for your interest and level of commitment to doing this ride so we can work on getting accommodations more formalized in the next several weeks.
