Riding and camping Northern California and beyond, since 1965!
We have reserved the Ceder Flat Group Site-Camp Noren for the September campout. Cedar Flat is located 25 miles Southeast of Bishop California in the Inyo National Forest. There is very little light pollution that makes for great nighttime sky views so bring some binoculars. Breakfast is at Squeeze In in Modesto at 3020 Floyd Ave #101, Modesto, CA 95355. Our ride will take 108 over the Sierra Nevada range. After that we head south to Benton with a stop in Bishop for supplies then head to camp. We will stop in Twain Harte for a bathroom break and a quick lunch somewhere on the route, probably in Lee Vining The Route is about 280 miles and should take about 5.5 hours not including stops. It's a long ride so we are going to leave at 9 AM sharp. Show up with a full tank of gas and be ready to roll at 9 AM. While it's a relatively simple route, familiarize yourself with the route and have a route sheet or load a route into your navigation device of choice.

We have reserved the Salt Point Group Campsite for the December meeting. There are many great roads to ride on the Sonoma Coast. Route sheet and breakfast location will be posted later in the year
This month we're headed to Plaskett Creek Campground, down the Big Sur coastline . Plaskett Creek is a great coastal campground located at 69345 Cabrillo Hwy, Big Sur, CA 93920. We have Group site 1 and 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.
Don't miss this event, the ride down to the coast, once we clear the Bay Area, is fantastic and the campsite is one of the best in California, especially for the winter.
Winter meeting hours will be in effect: 4:00 P.M. start time
This month we return to La Grange and the great hospitality of Russ Drake's Daughter. You can expect a fun campout and an awesome catered BBQ dinner! As usual camping is free and $10 for non-members. Dinner is $25. BYOB or chip in on a keg.
