BACKYARD RIDE

PREMIUM ADVENTURE MOTORCYCLE RIDING SAN DIEGO, CA

Explore San Diego in a brand new way. From sea level to mountain roads, down to the desert, we will show you a little bit of everything. On this local 3 day, 2 night adventure motorcycle ride, you’ll go through two state parks, Rancho Cuyamaca and California’s largest state park, Anza-Borrego Desert. You don’t have to travel far from your backyard to see some of California’s most amazing views.

On our first night, we will set up camp in Anza-Borrego where you will be greeted by our camp host. We will have food, drinks, and a campfire ready upon your arrival. You’ll get to share stories and drinks with your best friends or get the chance to make some new life-long ones.

Each adventure motorcycle ride includes a lead rider and chase truck for support. It carries water, food, rental tents, repair equipment, tools, and can tow your motorcycle if needed. Our rides include 2 expert guides that are first aid certified, so all you have to worry about is showing up and enjoying the adventure. Whether you’re testing out your skills or learning new ones, this ride is for you. It’s perfect for anyone that’s new to dual-sport adventure riding or comfortable when the pavement ends.
