After 47 years, the 49er Rally just keeps getting better. Enjoy the gathering while you enroll in GS Clinics for men or women, learn from multiple seminars, participate in both street and English Trials events, experience great food and beverages, watch the younger riders ride an obstacle course on 49cc minibikes, win prizes for multiple categories of riding, win money on the poker run, ride the Sierra passes and Yosemite, and sit back and relax at Airhead Central or at the well-stocked Bier Garden. Saturday dinner this year was designed by a fantastic four-star catering chef and the daily food options will give you great choices.

Last year we added a GS Clinic for women only to great reviews and it’s back again. The men’s GS Clinic has moved up a couple notches, and both are taught by teams of certified professional trainers. One presentation program will take you over the highest Himalayan pass in the world while another shows the thrill of adventure riding across Australia. Learn the history of some of BMW’s models and how design decisions were made from Tom Cutter, one of the original BMW Service Training Instructors. RKA will present the latest in electronics for the bike.

Grab one of the Day Ride Maps and head over three or four Sierras passes above 8,500 feet, spend a day in Yosemite (leave early and get there before other tourists arrive), or visit the great vineyards in the Sierra foothills. Bring the kids and their 49cc bikes and participate in some fun field events – or just have fun riding. Enjoy the Poker Run through the scenic Sierra foothills that comes with great prizes for the best hands.

The GS Giants are always a spectator favorite just like the English Trials, while the Field Events test your slow-speed skills. Raffle prizes are drawn every two hours throughout the weekend and winning the 50/50 raffle just might pay for your entire trip.

Enjoy Airhead Central, the Saturday evening women’s wine gathering, the beir garden, multiple vendors, a flea market, multiple food choices, some late night movies, awards for solo and two-up long distance riding, and the oldest and youngest male and female riders.

Plan your vacation around the 49er Rally, 21-25 May 2020 at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds in Mariposa, California. Enjoy the ride! For more info, look at bmwnorcal.org.

Here's a (short, not at all comprehensive) list of other rallies coming soon. For more info on what rallies might be near you, check out the MOA events listings page.
