STAR Touring and Riding – Chapter 186 – is made up of a diverse group of people who share a love of riding motorcycles. That diversity is the reason for our wide variety of exciting and FUN rides. We observe a no alcohol, no drug policy during all Chapter rides.

Our location in Contra Costa County, allows us to take full advantage of California’s rich and diverse topography. Our rides take us zigzagging through foothills and mountains, down into the inland valleys and along California’s majestic coast. Sometimes all in the same day, or over a weekend trip! And typically, our last stop is often reserved for ice cream!

Weather permitting, our Chapter rides are the second Saturday of each month. Spring through fall, we get together for an additional Chapter ride on the 4th Sunday – usually shorter in duration, or to a specific destination.

We are a mix of riders with varied riding experiences and welcome all to come ride with us. We follow all DMV protocols, and do not include “tavern” runs.

Please visit our calendar page often for updated information on all our scheduled rides, meeting and other events.

“Come ride in the sticks with 186”, and really experience riding in California!
