We are doing it again. The Third Annual Banámichi Motorcycle Meet-up will happen November 9, 10, and 11.
The first two years were great successes with unanimous support for doing it again this year. We had 32 bikes last year, we hope for more in 2018 and more donations of school supplies.
Banamichi is a good kick off point for Copper Canyon and points south and also for the ferries to Baja from Guaymas, Topolobampo or Mazatlan. We are between Mex 16 and Mex 17.
There are about 50 hotels rooms in town, Los Arcos has the 11 best with secure parking and a swimming pool. You get to choose your lodging for this event. We can help with other hotels but those reservations are your responsibility. Camping is available near by.
This is an informal type of thing. There are no fees, you pay for your rooms, your food and what ever else. Filling our hotel rooms and restaurant is great but that’s not what’s behind this. It’s about introducing more riders to the Rio Sonora, to Mexico and meet people you only know online and meet some new friends too. Highlights of the two previous meet-ups were the tour of the Bacanora still and the fantastic lunch. The Folkloricos dance performance was amazing and many folks visited the hot springs and did some short local rides.

What we do ask of you is that you bring school supplies for the elementary school in La Mora, just a few kilometers south of Banámichi. Pens, number 2 pencils, glue sticks, white erasers, and spiral-bound notebooks – and any and all school stuff that will fit on your bike. Last years haul is shown on the right – pretty impressive.
We will also be selling Banâmichi stickers. Last years sticker sales paid for a new printer for the school.
