The RCB board of directors meets monthly to review past activities and plan future events. Consideration is given to member interest and cost, and the meeting is open to all.
The meeting is held at Kathrin's Biergarten, 4810 Granite Dr, Rocklin, CA.
While the meeting begins at 7:00 P.M., most of the directors gather earlier to have dinner.
RCB member participation is strongly encouraged.
Riders meet at the Folsom Coffee Republic before heading out to a local dining establishment 30-45 minutes away. After dinner, the riders return home on their own. Locations are chosen the previous week by the participants. Participation varies between three and 30 riders depending on the time of year and the weather. And yes, we ride in rain and during holiday periods although the groups tend to be smaller and the destinations closer by. But through it all, we haven't missed a Wednesday in over two years!
Each week's destination is usually posted in the forum on the previous Monday or Tuesday.
What's better than a spirited ride through the beautiful NorCal roads we've been blessed with? Until the Covid pandemic is under control, we aren't having monthly meetings at Susie's as usual, but we will still meet there for our monthly club rides. If you want to have breakfast first, show up around 8 or so. Except for special events, the rides are generally 2-3 hours in length, and cover 100-200 miles. The rides are generally "spirited" but if we get enough participation, we generally add a second, more relaxed-pace group. Clutch out is 9:00AM, and gps route files are generally available for download on the website at least a day before the ride. Please show up with a full tank of gas.
Monthly Club meeting at Susie's Country Oaks Cafe, 1000 Melody Lane, Roseville, CA 95678
Meeting starts more or less at 8:00 and runs till 8:30 or so, depending on what the Rafflemeister has in his goodie bag.

RCB has reserved a group site at the Lost Creek Group Campground (elevation 5700 feet) which is located approximately five miles south of Manzanita Lake, 1/8-mile south of Crags Campground and close to the Lost Creek and Devastated areas in the Mt. Lassen National Park. Access to the campground is off the main park road. It is close to the main attractions and hiking trails of Lassen Volcanic National Park. Potable water and well-developed vault toilets are in the campground. A general store, showers and other amenities are a short ride from the campground.
The Lost Creek area is dominated by large ponderosa pines.
The national park is known for its volcanic history, as well as its diversity of plants and animals. It contains 300 active volcanic domes and many hydrothermal features, such as mud pots and steam vents. Lassen Peak is the southernmost active volcano in the Cascades, and the second most recent volcano to erupt in the lower 48 of the United States before Mount Saint Helens. The park is at the junction of the Cascade Mountains, the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Great Basin, thus providing many unique habitats.
Within a short ride, one can access several hiking trails and Manzanita Lake. The lake is popular with fly fishermen for catching trout; however, the area does maintain a catch-and-release policy and requires the use of artificial lures and single barb-less hooks only.
A National Park entrance fee of $20.00 must be paid when entering the park and before one can camp. Senior passes and yearly passes can be used in lieu of the entrance fee.
Please contact Mike Robles with questions.
