Sierra Nevada Adventures About Us

Sierra Nevada Adventures Motorcycle Touring was founded in 2007 by motorcycle enthusiast Mark Girardi. Mark’s passion for motorcycles and outdoor adventure has been in his blood since he was a young child growing up in the Gold Country of the Sierra Nevada. Mark’s experience range from many years of off-road and motocross racing to dual sport adventure including mountaineering guide to a historian on Sierra Nevada history. 2007 was a turning point when injuries requiring knee surgery put a stop to guiding wilderness backpacking / mountain climbing adventures in the Sierra Nevada. Mark decided to focus his passion for motorcycles and adventure into creating Sierra Nevada Adventures Motorcycle Touring company.
