    Oh yeah, it's time again for another great Oktoberfest, BMW NorCal style! And if you haven't yet joined us at Liberty Glen above Lake Sonoma, you're not going to want to miss this one. The Board of Directors (and some great volunteers) put on a great cookout for the Club, as a way to give back to the membership - with fresh, locally sourced German foods sourced by Kevin "Sausage Meister" Coleman, who tracks down great fresh sausage, pretzel, pickle, sauerkraut, spaetzle (thanks Mark and Linda!), and bier (of course!). This year there are rumors of home brew???  Members enjoy free camping, but for this event, the food is also free. In addition to the usual $10 fee for camping, non-members are asked to cover the cost of their meal and at $15 this is a great deal. Especially if you consider an early bird Sunday breakfast (while supplies last) is usually part of the deal. This year we are taking club donations at registration. Donors get a BMW NorCal wristband and open access to the drinks. 

    Another great thing about having this event at Liberty Glen is that all the roads leading there are great riding roads. And in addition to a great ride we are also making a stop at at Eurocycle Sonoma (Santa Rosa BMW) for a big vendor open house. So if you don't want to start with the club at Breakfast, meet us there!   

    Euro Cycle Sonoma

    The breakfast ride will start at Black Bear diner in San Rafael at 8AM for breakfast and departs at 9AM. Be gassed up and ready to ride! Riders will enjoy some classic west marin and sonoma county roads on the way to Eurocycle. After the open house riders will enjoy a quick jaunt to Liberty Glen Campground.

    This is it, the last campout of the year! And because of Thanksgiving, our November campout is actually December 7th. And because of the unknowns of winter weather we are sticking close to home, this time in Big Basin Redwood State Park in the Santa Cruz mountains. So let's do this!

    Breakfast at Louis' at 8AM, ride departs at 9. Try to be gassed up when you get there, this means get gas shortly before arriving. There's no gas near the restaurant.

    Thinking about Baja again, this time keeping to more of the original format, shorter and sweet. This is my first take on the route, this time meeting up just this side of Tecate at Portero Campground. 

    As proposed, we would cross at Tecate, head down MH3 towards ensenada but stay on 3 and head west towards San Felipe. GS bikes can hit Mike's sky Ranch while street bikes continue to San Felipe. From there we make our way down MH5, with stops in Gonzago Bay area, San Ignacio, then Mulege for 2 nights. Starting back we could stop in Catavina, Rancho Meling, then Valle de Guadalupe for the last night in Baja. Then Joshua Tree and onto Death Valley for the annual BMW NorCal campout. 

    There will be a registration charge at some point, but riders can sign up now to show interest and get on a mailing list. 

    Contact Nick with any questions. tourcaptain@bmwnorcal.org

    About the ride - we are a group of club and non club folks doing this ride on our own. No support, no guides. Everyone handles their own documentation and their own insurance, and brings their own gear and money to cover expenses. We will break up into different riding groups at meet up at the end of the day destination. We will sometimes ride strenuous, longer days of riding which require leaving early.There is a chance riders will become separated so everyone needs to handle their own navigation and know where we are going. This is not a "tag along" ride. And while Baja is awesome and friendly, riders need to know how to handle yourself in another country.
