Live Oak Campground, Santa Ynez, Ca.
Your 2020 Summer Vibe Starts Here
There is nothing better than planning a long weekend campout to kick off the new decade’s summer season opener. Except if it includes British Iron, others who share in the passion of the good old days of everything vintage motorcycle and the freedom to relax and get spoiled by it all. That is what the Lake Cachuma Vintage British M/C Rally is all about.
When you escape to your own private 40-acre campground, nestled in the mountains above picturesque Santa Barbara, the freedom to relax and unwind amid hundreds of old Oak trees envelopes you. Hot showers and three meals a day take away all responsibilities except to have fun, ride, participate, and mingle amongst your peers. Some of the most knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate Vintage British and just plain motorcycle enthusiasts are there. Racers, tuners, business owners, sponsors, and experts bring their stories and share the knowledge that goes very deep. It’s almost magical. Sharing meals and stories, chatting around the campfire, Awards ceremonies, giveaways, and our audio/video guru, Geoff Patrick’s evening entertainment highlight the atmosphere. Take off with one of Cozmic Joe’s “Ride Central” maps and cruise the backroads, historic locales and look for hidden flags to find and trade-in for a prize! Try out a new demo courtesy of Triumph Motorcycles America and compare a new Triumph to your old British ride.
The caliper of motorcycles that arrive at camp has continuously risen because the Classic Bike Show is one beautiful array of stock, restored, rare, rusty, collectible, and otherwise loved British Motorcycles on display! Over 50 machines are entered Saturday, in hopes of taking home a coveted trophy. Cozmic Joe’s custom creations created especially for the rally every year are awarded to the highest winners; People’s Choice and Best of Show. The buzz of the rally is the project bikes being built for the next year’s contest! Bike Show entry is included in the price of admission.
Sunday is the chance to compete in fun-filled games on your bike in the Field Meet organized by Steve Ortiz. Ride one or two up and test your skills on the slalom course, beanbag toss, ring toss, hang clothespins, ride the plank, put balls on cones, and the best event of all, the Slow Race!!! Most points collected wins. Top 6 awarded medals! There is also a kids field meet exclusively for kids under 16, so bring the family! Many children have learned how to ride in camp over the years on the wide-open field and supportive environment. Many are now bringing their children! The rally carries a long legacy of motorcycling enthusiasts and the freedom to have fun! Bicycles are welcome in the kid’s field meet, too!
Eddie and Jodi Mulder are hosting the rally for the sixth year after an eight-year hiatus. Prior to that, John and Susan Healy of Coventry Spares, then John and Donna Mulrean were the hosts. Beginning in 1989 the legacy of the Lake Cachuma Vintage British M/C Rally is long and well-loved. Families, friends, and enthusiasts have been spreading the word that brings the best people and machines to the rally for decades. Be part of the excitement! Bring your favorite beverages, bikes, and buddies and explore the picturesque landscapes. Let us take care of the food and activities, you come and have fun. All bikes welcome, Vintage British preferred 😉
