Sierra Nevada Fall Colors Ride October 22-24 FARM RULES

Fellow Motopsycoists; It is now summer.
Fall will be upon us soon. In the sierras that means RED & GOLD in the mountains.
Lets meet up and ride the passes and enjoy the scenery

Date: October 22-24
Location: Calaveras BigTrees State Park just out of Arnold on Hwy4

Event: FARM Rules Apply. BYOS, BYOB, BYO.....everything.


This is not an ADV organized ride/event. I will not be there to greet you and hold your hand to set up your camp or your ride. This is a walk in camp ground so you would be encouraged to arrive in time to get your own site.



Check the FOLIAGE REPORT

________________________
UPDATE: 20 October
I have called the campground. Make note of the following

1 site:
~35-$37 PER DAY
8 Person max/ site
1 Vehicle/ site
$8 per extra vehicle
>>>>1 vehicle is any plated/licensed vehicle so thats $8 per bike PER DAY.

Also, the girl said to bring a tarp for your tent. I guess it can get a little funky if it rains.

Beemer Bash. Sept 17-19.

I like the long weekend idea. But I need to get my bike mojo together. Right now all I've got to ride is my XR. Everything else needs a wrench and some $$$. I'm going to put some blue dye on some asprin and try to raise some cash on the internet.

We try to get over Hwy. 88 into Hope Valley every Fall for the colors. They are truly spectacular. Mebbe an Indian Grinding Rock campout is in order. It's on the way to or from.
Usually the 2nd or 3rd week of October is when the colors start to get really good.

Anyone interested in some sort of camp-out/non-organised ride through the Sierras come October, or whenever the trees turn red and gold? A beautiful sight that is only available a few weeks during the year.
Are you talking about the Sierras as in Tahoe/Truckee, further south or both?

It is my favorite time of the year to do the Hwy. 49 though Downieville to 89 to Truckee and back home down 20, 150 nice miles.
