The 3J’s Motorcycle Days’ 20th charity event on Wednesday includes a full track day of riding around the road course, a catered lunch, T-shirt, a commemorative item and an evening reception for all riders. The cost is $275 and all riding levels are welcome.
Participants can also purchase raffle tickets to win prizes including a one-night stay at MacArthur Place, a champagne-tasting experience at Korbel Winery or dinner at Melting Pot restaurant. For more details, visit 3jsmotorcycledays.com.
Riders can also enjoy a scenic group ride departing from Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, May 3, with the RKA/Sonoma Raceway Wine Country Charity Ride.
The ride, organized by RKA Motorcycle Luggage, will include a cruise through Sonoma and Marin Counties and a stop for lunch at Rancho Nicasio, before concluding back at the raceway.
The ride is free to join, but a donation to Speedway Children’s Charities is suggested upon arrival. There will also be a charity drawing for motorcycle gear, with the lunch costing $25 plus gratuity.
