Earlybird camping available on Friday. 
This is not a catered event.  Be prepared for camp cooking.  If you are unsure of your camp cooking skills, bring a pan and and something in a can.  Many of us have camp stoves.

Russ Drake will lead  the tour:

The September26 meeting and camp out will be at the Hornswoggle Campground, located northwest of Nevada City and very close to Bullard’s Bar Reservoir.  The level campsite has tables, fire pits, water and toilets.  The Saturday meeting will start at 5:00 pm.

The direct route to the campsite is to ride up to Nevada City and continue northwest on Hwy 49 about 14 miles until you cross the Middle Fork of the Yuba River, then make a left on Moonshine Road which winds its way up to Marysville Road.  Make a right on Marysville Rd. and the Hornswoggle Group camp ground will be a little ways up on the right side of the road. Continue to the Sugarpine (#2) site at the top of the road.  For those of you who are fortunate to be retired or sick of work, we have the campsite for both Friday and Saturday nights.

If you are joining us the tour, we will be meeting at the Black Bear Diner, 2351 Toste Road, Tracy, CA.  To get to the Diner from the Bay Area take Hwy 580 toward Stockton and take the Grant Line Road exit from Hwy 205. Take a right onto W. Grant Line Rd. and the diner is on the right.  The tour will start at 8:30 amSHARP!  Gas tanks should be full.

This month’s tour will be about 250 miles so we will be moving right along.  We will be heading up into the hills using many small two lane roads.  There will be no freeways used on this tour.  Once in the hills, we will seek out some of the small one lane country roads located close to several of my dirt biking areas.  All parts of the route are paved but I guarantee that you will find at least one and possibly several roads that you did not know existed.

Hope to see you all,


The camping fee for dues-paying members is $10 and $20 for guests.
