There are still plenty of openings left on this ride......we always have lots of raffle merchandise to giveaway Saturday night after the catered dinner, lunches included both days....great riding in the Anza Borrego Desert area...... Flyer is up on News/Events Page of SDAR Site.... LINK HERE It's that time of year for the 10th Annual Anza Borrego Desert Dash, February 23-24, 2013. This year should be better than ever, gotta celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the event. Just a little history on it....10 years ago I decided to try to put on an organized event....about 56 people showed up to the one day ride. The next year, I tried it as a 2 day ride...only about 30 people showed up. Then, we started advertising the event in the D37 AMA Dualsport Newsletter, and it grew from there. For the last few years, we have always been at maximum capacity with entries from all over, including California (a lot of D37 Los Angeles area riders), northern CA, Oregon, Washington, the east coast and even Japan. It continues to be a favorite of many riders. This year, we will get out and change the routes around a bit, try to find some new trails to add to the ride. Just a note...this ride would be difficult for a new, inexperienced rider. This 2 day dualsport ride for licensed, street-legal motorcycles passes through the vast Anza Borrego Desert State Park, Ocotillo Wells and the Superstition Mountain Area, including many scenic canyons, sandwashes, mud caves and spectacular vistas of the surrounding badlands, mountains and deserts.
