 Food, Drinks, and Snacks

Thanks to all the generous donations and sponsors, NATA-RALLY is providing free water, iced teas and colas throughout the weekend.  A light breakfast of pastries, oatmeal, yogurt, fruits, hot coffee, and tea are also being provided to the overnight campers, or those who come in extra early to visit.

This year the NATA-RALLY is welcoming anyone to stay for dinner, if you can make a small donation to cover it that would be appreciated.  All food will be made on site, with love, by our own Rally helpers.

Campsite/Meeting area

Camping and rally fees can be paid at the Rally site in cash or check. Parking Pass must be paid at Rangers Station. Camping and meeting area will be at the Sequia Group camp site at Big Basin Redwoods State Park

21600 Big Basin Way,
Boulder Creek, CA 95006

Follow the signs

Park Rules, please follow the printed and posted park rules and please remember that we are all Ambassadors ( pun intended ) for the Moto Guzzi and motorcycling community so no speeding please and quite time starts at 10:00 pm


Big Basin park sits at the crest of the Santa Cruz mountains with views to the ocean, the sea breeze can be chilly so please bring layered clothing as the temperatures can be unpredictable.

Other stuff

The rally site is within 3minutes of the park general store.  Fuel and other accommodations such as motel/hotels are about 10-20 minutes away in Boulder Creek, Ca.

Donations and Thank You!

The NATA-RALLY is very loosely formatted, and as our inaugural event, please forgive us for any short comings.  The Moto Guzzi community of the Bay Area is also holding this event to help bring together more Guzzisti and other motorcyclists and give back to the community at the same time.

The rally itself is still very expensive to put together, in addition to supplying all the goodies along with food and drinks, so any extra donations are always welcome and appreciated.
