What we're about

Supported by: CampsiteShare.com

Go to bottom of this section to see PERKS from the local shops that support NorCal Adventure Moto.


This group is for adventure bike riders who are interested in getting out and using their bike for its intended use… Adventures! Northern California offers thousands of miles of back roads & trails through spectacular mountains & dense forests, meandering rivers, over passes, across deserts, and overlooking the beautiful Pacific. We’d like to explore the renowned routes and discover the secret ones. We’d like to see them all.

Important: Riders do not need to be "experts" but riders should be comfortable on street AND dirt, and be prepared. Adventure touring, if done right, may have a few surprises. It's not an adventure until something goes wrong...

This group is for competent, responsible riders. This is NOT a tough-guy contest. Please no racing or show offs. Safety first! The most important part of a ride is making it home.

All riders are responsible for themselves and ride at their own risk. Please wear your safety gear.

Meetup Types
Meet/Adventure Planning: These meetups are an opportunity to meet and discuss ride plans, gear & gadgets in person.

Explorer Ride: These rides are primarily to boldly go where we’ve never gone before. To explore roads, trails (big enough for adv bikes, hopefully), routes, parks, areas that we’re not certain about. They may or may not be open and passable. They may even require a little teamwork. It’s all part of the adventure!

Missions: These rides are a bit more calculated with fewer unknowns. Less about discovering a new route, more about sticking to an itinerary.

Skills & Drills: These meetups/rides are to work on honing our riding skills, judgement, navigation, packing and preparedness.

Multi-Day: These rides include at least two days of riding and one night camping or in a motel.

These local shops support NorCal Adventure Moto members with perks! Please support our local shops.
