If you like the rocks, sand washes, cactus, and Joshua trees and best of all clear blue skies and pristine air, then this is the ride for you see Challenge map. In the High Dessert we have October temperatures in the 70s to 80s that help extend our riding weather deep into the fall season.
This year we still have the Tame 10 mile course for those not into extreme riding. See Tame 10 Map. We also have a Family 5 course for those looking for a cruise. For those who want to feel the ground beneath their feet we provide a 5 Mile Run/Walk course. See the 5 mile Run/Walk map.

This bike ride will accommodate all levels of expertise. Casual touring cyclists and families will enjoy the Tame 10 mile course and the Family 5 mile course, with the majority of these rides on broad well-maintained and lightly traveled dirt access roads and some sandy stretches. The 22 mile course is for those looking for a challenge who enjoy intense desert trails of sand, rock, hill climbs, and single track.
Safety and fun are our top concern for all participants. Therefore, helmets are required, and riders are expected to obey all traffic regulations. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the Citizens on Patrol (COPs) will be assisting at all highway crossings. Riders under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian rider/runner/walker.
Out of this World BBQ will once again provide lunch of barbecued chicken, pulled pork and tri-tips at the finish line. Lunch is included in the price of the ride. Break stops will be stocked with water and snacks and porta-potties. SAG vehicles will be roving the routes to assist with minor mechanical problems, first-aid, and fatigue. There will also be a bike mechanic available before the ride.
The first 200 riders will receive a commemorative t-shirt. No guarantees if you do not preregister.
Hotels are located 35 miles away in the communities of Big Bear Lake, and Victorville. For those who like to camp, grass for tents, and dry parking for RVs will be available the night before the event near the ride starting line, for no additional fee.
