This June, Babes Ride Out returns to the Catskill Mountains in New York for our second East Coast all-ladies motorcycling and camping event, where the mountains, forests and roads will become our home for three days and two nights.
The Catskills as a destination were born of the need for the “tonic of wilderness”. As the backyard playground to New York City, the Catskills became the ultimate escape from the bustle and industry of the city. “America’s first great vacationland” filled with grand mountains, vast forests and pristine waters.
The Catskills played an essential role in forming the first distinctively American archetype of Frontiersmen, tempting all those enticed by the undiscovered and unclaimed wild. Over the years, The Catskills has attracted tycoons and gangsters, preachers and outlaws, artists, musicians, spiritualists, outcasts and rebels.
Ride out on our planned routes and explore rustic towns like Phoenicia, Woodstock, and Bethel Woods, following those who came before you in search of something wild. Cruise along the winding Hawk’s Nest, taking in the majestic panoramic view over the Delaware River, or take your motorcycle to the breathtaking summit of High Point State Park. Explore the stunning beauty of Kaaterskill Falls, dive into the Peekamoose Blue Hole, or take a much-needed pit stop at the Phoenicia Diner, before returning to camp in the afternoon for an evening of games, music and fireside fun.
Most of all come explore. Feel small but powerful. Feel the stark solitude of the Catskills all in the company of hundreds of friendly moto babes. Grab your tickets HERE.
