The Best Riding Routes to Explore During Babes in Borrego

This area is near and dear to us as its where Babes Ride Out began almost a decade ago + has the best riding we have ever done. We are talking hundreds of miles, hardly any stop signs or lights kinda riding. With options that will take you to mountain towns and vast desert spaces, it truly is a motorcyclist's paradise. As we start to roll out the event happenings, we wanted to share our top 5 "HOLY SHHHHEEESH" rides that we love. Discuss with your posse and le'ts GOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Stop by our merch booth to grab a Harley-Davidson route map to keep on you during your self guided ride or download the route before*

Sculpture Tour  21 miles round trip

Want to see the sites in town then have a chill day @ the pool? We got you! The Sculpture tour is one of our fav’s for a morning rip to see the world famous Galleta Meadows, the Borrego sculptures by Ricardo Breceda then having a casual lunch at Casa de Zorro before heading back for some pool side hangs! Breceda is a local legend and has contributed roughly 130 beautiful statues to the desert floor of Borrego Springs. Make sure to take Russ Brown kickstand puck with you if you plan on stopping for photo ops as the sand is S O F T next to the pavement. Our fav is the 350 ft serpent.

Tail of 2 Grades  73 miles round trip

For those about to shred, we salute you! A Tail of Two Grades takes you up down & around the most technical grades in southern CA. This is a 10 MPH in some sections kinda windy route with beautiful vistas and jaw dropping views. If you are the type of gal who loves those tight curves and some adrenaline, this may be the route for you! Side note: if banner grade doesn’t make you go “OHHH SHEEEEEEOOTT” then you are a next level shredder!

Slab City Adventure 179 miles round trip

Slab City.. there is nothing like it! See the land of the unknown, where dwellers come from all over to be apart of the last bit of “free America” and make sure to stop at the local haunts and installations. Can you say "Banana Museum"? Google it!!!! 

The Great 8 182 miles round trip

Hands down one hell of a ride (and my absolute FAV!). From desert, to mountain, to pines, to vast desert again, this route is sure to blow your mind!

On the Border 188 miles round trip

YEW!!! WE ARE GOING TO MEXICO!!! Not really, but your phone will probably say WELCOME TO MEXICO at some point on this amazing ride that skims the border. Much like the great 8, its a super diverse and scenic ride that goes from desert to pines, then back around through some of the most wide open spaces I have ever seen. Truly an epic day or riding for anyone who wants to mow down some miles.
