BORREGO SPRINGS, CA
It all started here in 2013. Unlike the first event where we slept in a pile of dirt, this event and location are much different than the others. We have rented out the entire Palm Canyon Hotel & camping space as well as the Borrego Valley Inn to host an incredible ladies only 2-night 3-day weekend of riding and enjoying this picturesque area. Must be 21+ to attend.
We are excited to bring a new style of event into our lineup with Babes in Borrego and hope you enjoy this smaller scale riding weekend in the heart of where it all started. This weekend is about getting out and riding the many routes around the area with no stop lights to slow you down for hundreds of miles during the day and enjoying some quality time together when the sun sets on those majestic mountains in Borrego Springs, CA.
If you booked a room or camping spot, you are IN! Each accommodation will have wristbands and bike bands so we know who is staying at the resorts / are allowed to be on the property + use pool. These bands are based on accommodation & capacity, for example a room that has a 2-person max occupancy gets 2 wrist & 2 bike bands, a camping spot that allows 6 people gets six bands and so on. Each accommodation above has its room max clearly listed. These bands will be collected by the person who is on the reservation upon check in to give to anyone sharing their accommodation with them. If you are staying with someone who has an accommodation, arrive with them OR after them, NOT before as you will be turned away until your accommodation holder is there.
We are offering day passes for those staying off site but want to come in and check out the event while it's happening. These are for motorcyclists only. No overnight parking or overnight stays allowed for those holding a day pass.
Palm Canyon is the larger hotel where the Harley-Davidson demos will be going on, where we will be selling our merch, and have the pool party! About a 1/2 mile down the road is Borrego Valley Inn which has 15 rooms and is geared towards more quiet style folks. If you are staying at Borrego Valley Inn, feel free to ride over to Palm Canyon Resort to enjoy but note there are no shuttles or other forms of transportation other than your own two legs or your motorcycle. Yee Haw!
Correct! This year is different. The tent camping & vintage RV rentals are ONLY motorcycle camping (no other vehicles except motorcycles in this area). If you are bringing a car or truck, you must have a hotel accommodation as there is (1) parking spot per room. RVS, pull behind trailers, and toyhaulers are not allowed at this event.
NO. We are at max capacity for the resort once we sell out so while we'd love to have you, we can't accommodate you coming on to the property. Only those will wristbands and bike bands will be allowed to be on property to ensure our guests have parking. If the resort catches an un-banded bike or vehicle parked on the property or in fire lanes etc., the vehicle will be towed at owners expense ($265 yikes!). If you've missed out, we will have to see you next year!
No, not under any circumstance can we refund your purchase.
Yes! You are able to transfer your accommodation to another rider. Simply click HERE! All transfers end November 1st at 12PM pacific (no exceptions). The price of the accommodation minus a $25 processing fee will be refunded to the original user. There is no option to edit the name on your reservation after you have purchased so please make sure it matches the ID you will have on hand at the time of the event.
We want to be 100% transparent as we have new riders join us every year (which is awesome). Here is the nitty gritty: This is a true riding event. If you do not like riding motorcycles you will NOT have a good time. This isn't a shopping event, or a drink all day type of thing, there are no tour guides, no pre-arranged group rides, no one to help with special needs etc. If you can navigate a google map, come prepared for the weather, have your bike dialed, able to problem solve, love to rough it a bit or not if you booked a room or trailer, this event is right up your alley. If you are the type that needs to "speak to the manager" then it's suggested to find another event that is better suited to your comforts.
All street legal 2, 3, or 4-wheel freedom machines are welcome! If you are not riding yet or not 100% confident to ride to this event, we suggest driving & staying in the hotel. We hope the weekend will inspire you to get your license after getting to know this amazing community.
Sorry! All accommodations are FRI-SUN with no exceptions.
When you arrive, you will check in with the front office to get your spot # based on what you paid for. No pre-arranged spots or special requests can be accommodated.
Big Horn Burgers & Shakes is on the property as well as a fully stocked saloon + a camp store for those must haves! The town has many restaurants and a few gas stations for easy fueling.
We’d love to hear more! Babes Ride Out is a private event and we do the best we can not to distract our guests so they can have the best time possible. If you want to shoot the event in any way for a media source, a brand, or other non-personal use, please email email@example.com for permission as no commercial photography or video of any kind is allowed unless approved by BRO. Images for your own use are 100% awesome and appreciated! No need to ask if it’s for yourself and/or personal social media, we only ask that you be respectful to the other attendees :)
Click and post away in our Babes Ride Out Borrego Facebook event page coming soon. This is a great way to meet up with ladies to ride to the space with.
No, this is a ladies only weekend.
Nope, the event is not kid / pet friendly :(
Must be 21+ to attend and have valid ID to drink.
Weapons, signage, flags, banners, fireworks, pets, kids, a bad attitude, hand-outs for a brand or marketing materials of any kind.
Nope! Your room reservation must match your ID and the person who made the reservation is the only one that can collect the room key + wristbands & parking bands at the front desk. We cannot add more names to the reservation so you are in charge sister! Please arrive together if you are sharing your room with other ladies. There are also places in town you can group up before entering property.
100% yes! “Ladies Only” is the best we have found to make it clear who this event is dedicated to. We understand that gender is fluid and trust that the moto community can make the distinction as they have over our past 9 years hosting the events.
All Babes Ride Out events have a zero-tolerance policy for any hate speech or violence whatsoever. We have never had a problem with this at any of our events but we feel that it is important to reiterate that racism, homophobia, bigotry, aggressive behavior towards anyone and/or anything that resembles it is not welcome ever at any of our events.
