2021 NorCal Himalayan Rally After a wild and at times underwhelming 2020, we could all use something to look forward to in 2021! I’m proud to announce the NorCal Himalayan Rally being held just outside of historical Nevada City, CA on July 8-11. This event will be catered specifically to Royal Enfield Himalayan riders wanting to spend a long weekend improving their riding skills in some of the best scenery Northern California has to offer. Where are we going? We’ll spend 2 days riding 350+ miles of old mining roads through the best parts that Nevada, Sierra, and Placer county have to offer. Attendance will be limited to 15 riders who will find themselves camping on the shores of Scott’s Flat Lake at just a touch below 4,000ft. Dinner will be included the night of the 9th and 10th as my wife and I will do our best to serve up a delicious variety of foods to keep your energy levels piqued. Attendees should expect to arrive on Thursday the 8th with a skills session planned for the afternoon to help those interested in improving and learning some handy off-road skills and techniques. Early Friday morning we’ll hit the trail for a full day of riding. We’ll stop for a lunch-time bite in one of the many mountain mining villages nestled in the Sierra while we spend the day exploring the various hidden gems the road less traveled has to offer. Upon our return to camp, we’ll wind down with dinner and a gathering around the fire to share the day’s stories. Saturday will see us heading South, deeper into Placer County as we edge nearer to Lake Tahoe, the Rubicon Trail and much more. On Sunday for those interested, we’ll start the day early riding into Grass Valley for a hearty breakfast before heading back to pack up. Admission: Admission cost for this event will be $125. An additional $50 will apply to those wishing to bring along a +1. The additional fee covers their T-Shirt and meals. If the +1 wishes to opt out of a T-Shirt and provided meals then they’re welcome to attend along with at no additional cost. What is included? Included with each admission will be a T-Shirt, decal, single raffle ticket, your camping reservations for the nights of the 8th, 9th and 10th at Scott’s Flat Campground and two dinners. There's a few other perks and things planned for the event as well that will make the event all the more memorable - more details will come as they're currently in the works. Will there be vegetarian food options? When you RSVP, please include any dietary restrictions you may have so that we can account for this with your meal! Can my +1 ride in this event for just the extra $50 fee? Yes and no. The extra 50 covers the cost of the meals and T-Shirt but not the camping or extra tie-ins such as a raffle ticket etc. If your +1 is sharing a camping accommodation with you then they can ride so long as they're on a Himalayan. If they'll be sleeping in a different tent (in the event your +1 is a friend or family member) then the full $125 will apply. As a result though, they'll also get a raffle ticket and be included in any of the additional little surprises we're working hard on getting situated for the event! Payment: Payment can be made via. VenMo @KennyBooBear - VenMo ID is case sensitive. For other payment methods (Money Order etc.), please reach out to me directly by email or through Facebook. Please include T-Shirt sizes for you and if applicable, your +1. Refunds: Full refunds will be honored up until 4 weeks in advance of the event or until shirts are ordered (contingent on supply this could be as late as 2 weeks in advance of the event.) In the event of a COVID related event cancellation, those that RSVP will be offered a full refund or a full credit toward the rescheduling of the event at a later date (possibly later in 2021 or worst case scenario in the Spring/Early Summer of 2022.) Current outlook from the campground is good however, so this seems like an unlikely scenario, but as we've learned through the last year - anything is possible. Location: Scott's Flat Campground is located at 23333 Scotts Flat Rd. Nevada City, CA 95959.
