Day 1: Friday morning you'll start this unforgettable 3 day off road ride at Rancho Veronica, east of Tecate. Another option is to start in Ensenada, which is an easier route from the Coast, it's up to you. You'll cruise the pine forests of the Sierra De Juarez, taking in the beautiful Laguna Hansen Park all the way. Later meet up with your support truck for gas, groceries, and goodies along the way before descending into Valle De Trinidad. From that point there's 3 different routes, so pick your poison! At days end, you'll ride into the famous high mountain resort of Mikes Sky Ranch.
Ask anyone who has been to Mike's and they'll tell you of motorcycles by the pool, comfortable rooms, hot showers, trout stream, pool table, and a friendly lounge beset with posters, stickers and photos covering 27 years of racing history.
After an unbelievable steak dinner you'll kick off a lie swapping, bench racing session and general good time. The bartender will handle all your beverage requests (one item Trail Boss's wallet is too small to handle). Try some of Mike private stock; it will warm your bones the Baja way! Stay up until the generator is shut off and take in the fantastic star show.
Day 2: After a hearty breakfast you'll charge over the summit or drop back to Valle De Trinidad, depending on the skill level of your party and head out to the Pacific Coast. The summit road is quite challenging, riding trails that were once roads, and the latter, smooth sailing down graded dirt roads. Once out to the coast you'll explore remote beaches and coves, very similar to California 100 years ago. Lobster camps, wild horses, and big country are just some of the sights you'll see. That afternoon, you'll meet up with the support truck at another legendary Baja landmark, the El Palomar in Santo Tomas. Your hosts, The Cantu's, will make you feel right at home in the heart of Baja's wine country. The pool, palapas, and bar (try the big Margaritas!) will ready you for your seafood feast that awaits you at this fine establishment.
Day 3: The day begins with plenty of hot coffee and machaca con huevos, then its time to roost inland on more of past and present Baja race courses, through ranches, rolling hills and mountains towards the farmlands of Ojos Negros, where you will meet the truck for gas and lunch on tacos and burritos.
After lunch you climb out of the plains and back into the pines, heading to your final start/finish destination, Rancho Veronica. A pool, hot showers, and frosty drinks are available for all your deserving riders. This last days ride has a lower mileage so you will have time to relax before your departure.
A maximum of 450 miles will be ridden. Everything related to motorcycles, or the repair of, is on board for your convenience.
