The American Motorcyclist Association granted District 36 Road Rider Division its charter in 1974, and in 2016 we proudly celebrate our 42 th year of continuous effort to promote and protect the interests of motorcyclists, both the "recreational" rider and those who consider motorcycling a way of life. District 36 serves AMA charted clubs, promoters, and individual riders in Northern California and Western Nevada.

District 36 provides organized motorcycling events and promotes cooperation with other motorcycle clubs and organizations, within and outside its district borders. In addition, the District serves as the official liaison between the chartered clubs and AMA national headquarters. Our Congress Representatives are your voice and take your issues and concerns to AMA National each year. We are here to provide assistance to clubs in the preparation of charter, sanction, and insurance applications, and in the completion of reports at the conclusion of club sponsored events.

District 36 and its member organizations promote family fun on motorcycles through activities that encourage and exemplify safe and skillful riding.

We invite all road and dual-sport riders and clubs to participate in the events of the District. AMA membership is not required, although we strongly promote AMA and its ideals. All individuals who are members of AMA, and who live within the boundaries of District 36 are automatically members of District 36. There are no individual dues required by District 36. We invite AMA chartered clubs and promoters to become voting members of District 36 for an annual membership fee of $35.00. Your membership in District 36 will include your club�s events in our annual calendar and promotional materials, plus helping strengthen the bond between clubs.

Each Year our event calendar includes a variety of activities, including our Gypsy Tour and a fun-filled three day family DISTRICT HEY-DEY RALLY, at Stockton Family Camp, Silver Lake on Labor Day weekend.
