2021 February Second Saturday Drive (SSD)
Second Saturday Drive is a monthly drive event meant to give you an excuse to get out and drive your BMW at least once a month.
Greetings Sierra Chapter Members,
As promised, this months Second Saturday Drive (SSD) is 100% paved roads. The link to the planned route is below. We will be meeting at the Raley’s off of Golden Valley Road (1075 N Hills Blvd in Reno) on the south end of their parking lot. The Raley’s does have a Peet’s Coffee inside for those that need a boot before we depart.
Gathering starts at 9:30 to sign the waiver and socialize from a distance for a bit, we will depart at promptly at 10:00am.
The drive route takes us North on US-395 toward CA-70 (Hallelujah Junction) where we will head west toward CA-89. Once we reach CA-89 we will head south toward Graeagle and on to Truckee where we will end the drive in the parking lot near the FiftyFifty Brewing Company (11197 Brockway Rd #1) in Truckee.
They are open for Lunch on their covered patio if you are interested in giving them a try. I highly recommend them, they also make some amazing beers if you are a beer drinker. Given our still living under the cloud of Covid-19, we will not be dining as a group, but there are a number of places in Truckee proper. We will leave you to your own devices to make your way home at your leisure.
I certainly hope to see you on this drive, but understand if you can’t make it. We will keep doing this each month throughout the year, so please do try to attend one as the weather starts to warm up and hopefully the Covid restrictions start to lessen.

Finally, if you have a favorite route or place to visit that you think others would enjoy, please let me know. The primary intent of the SSD is to keep the time frame in the 2 – 2 1/2 hours long time-frame, but anything is up for discussion and consideration. If it is a longer drive, we might just make it an regular RSVP based event on a 3rd or 4th weekend. I would love to hear your ideas.
Until next time, keep the rubber on the road!
