anyone concerned about the future of the hot springs...please read linky.
This looks awesome! Is it happening this fall or again next spring? If so, is there a mailing list/newsletter I can subscribe to?
The Noob rally has been every year. The second Death Valley rally is in the planning and is on the east side of DV:
Definitely an experience not to miss. A bunch of inmates ride/travel down from the Bay Area to DV n00bs each year. Fewer Bay Area folks make it down to Pahrump but some do make the trek. A good group of folks at both with a lot of overlap.
Keep and eye out around the beginning of November for next year's sign ups to start. Keep a watch for DV n00bs.
Cool, yeah I'm up in Sonoma. We took our big bikes down in February...but cheated and loaded the bikes in a toy hauler haha. With more time it could be an awesome 2-3 day ride each way there and back.
You really need to hit both of these. There are soooo many trails and things to see in/around death valley, you can't get it all in from any one or two trips.
Agreed, we hit it hard for 5 days and felt like we barely scratched the surface!
still good you got 5 days of riding.
at the noobs rally, our biggest problem is not having enough fuel to get to the northern most part of the NP.
though i've seen riders put in 300 miles in one day, they don't stop for pictures and smell the flowers...
from this month's SOS newsletter:
Clubs Step Up To Help Stewards Continue Keeping Trail Open to All
With individual donations down dramatically it is a good thing that several clubs have been able to do fundraisers benefiting Sequoia Trails.
Piute Trail Riders Donation top the list by raising over $11,000 for Stewards this year. This group of dedicated trail riders led by Jim Martens of Konflict Suspension have been able to provide more donations to Stewards each year.
Chaparrals MC led by Mike Adams have a great way to raise funds for trails. Mike requires each of his Alpine Dual Sport event rider to kick in $50. Their event will be in September and brings in over $4000 to help Sequoia trails.
Bakersfield Trailblazers were the first club to fundraiser for Stewards. They have been incredibly generous with their support. This year they raised over $6000 for Sequoia Trails.
WARPED hosts a ride in Sequoia each year. This group of dedicated adventure riders, open up their wallets around the campfire each year. They raised over $3000
The NOOBS event takes place in Death Valley each spring to introduce newbies to adventure riding. Organizer Joel Paez splits the raffle proceeds between several worthy organizations, including Stewards of the Sequoia. This year they raised $1000 to help Stewards.
