It's time again for BMW NorCal's premier riding rally!

This year we're starting at a private campground in Elk Creek, CA New this year are providing a free dinner and an outdoor clubhouse to hang out with your fellow riders and enjoy complementary beverages in Elk Creek! The exact location for Friday night will be provided in your registration confirmation. 

The BMW NorCal Range of Light Gypsy Tour, is a rally like no other! Why? Because this is no stationary rally. This is a riding rally, a two day event conceived for true riding fans, by true riding fans. Riders will be treated to exceptional road and optional GS routes, showcasing some of the best riding and scenery in the West. And be sure to bring fresh tires as you can expect around 300 miles each day. Our destinations? You won't know until the day before. This is a closely guarded secret - all we can tell you is the start point. 

The rally we know today had its humble beginnings in 1991 when a group of BMW NorCal visionaries  organized this event to ride, camp, and celebrate some of the best riding of the Sierra Nevada - the "Range of Light".  And while these days we technically stray out of the Range of Light, we still stay true to the original intent of the first ROL Rallies. 

Today riders can look forward to:

  • Two days of some of the best riding in the State, destinations unknown.
  • 3 nights grassy camping.
  • Hot showers Saturday and Sunday Nights.
  • Catered dinners Friday, Saturday and Sunday Nights
  • Complimentary cold drinks each night!
  • Poker Run with great prizes!
  • Fun door prizes and sponsor swag.
  • Sag wagon to haul your gear (soft luggage only). 
  • Rescue wagon in case there's a problem.
  • Printed route booklets, shared Rever route files/downloadable .gpx files.
  • Rally shirts, pins, and stickers. 
  • Great Camaraderie. 

The Range of Light Gypsy Tour is part adventure, part test piece, part endurance event, part riding tour, part camp-out, and 100% fun. So register now and join those ready for the best rally in the West! This year we start in Elk Creek, CA at a private facility.  Check-in and gate registrations open at 3:00 P.M. 

And as with all BMW NorCal events, riders of all brands of motorcycles are welcome to ride in the ROL, as long as the bikes are street legal, in sound working order, registered and insured. And remember, BMW motorcycle owners are eligible for Club membership with their registration and payment of the annual dues! This is a nod to the dedication of ROL Gypsy Tour riders, and the riding and camping involved with this event is the foundation the BMW NorCal Club is built on.
