EventsAshmore Ellis

So! You are coming to Babes Ride Out East Coast 2 in beautiful Narrowsburg, NY! We can't wait to have you join us. Our private campsite is located at the Landers River's Narrowsburg group site and is walking distance to the heart of town where you can easily find gas, a liquor stores, little bars & grills, incredible places for lunch or snacks, and some locally owned shops set up down a quaint main street. There is also a campstore on site that has literally everything you may have forgotten to bring as well. Even though the town has a lot to offer it's best to ALWAYS come prepared so if it's been a minute since you have been camping we have put together a quick list of must haves and things to consider.

7 days worth of clothes thanks to compression sacks! YEW!

  • Have your bike serviced BEFORE you come to the event. Make sure that baby is tuned up and roadworthy! 
  • Add the $35 100 mile moto towing to your AAA package. It's good for a year and YES, I have had to use mine before and it's saved me a ton of cash. If you bike breaks down, this is like having a guardian angel. We are not responsible for towing your bike or getting you to the event or home after the event. 
  • Tent/Hammock (tons of trees at this site for shade)
  • Sleeping Pad
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Headlamp
  • Water Bottle w/ clip (we have potable water on site to fill your bottles)
  • Wet Wipes / Face wipes 
  • EXTRA toilet paper 
  • Pillow (camp size)
  • Extra fuel (check out Lowbrow Customs fuel canister at $19.95)
  • Warm clothes (HOT TIP! Waterproof compression sacks can fit everything you need and more)
  • Clothes for extreme heat & humidity
  • Zip ties
  • A couple of sandwich bags in case it rains and you need to create a waterproof way of carrying your iphone.
  • Multitool
  • Tool kit / roll
  • Swimsuit
  • Flip flops (super shitty ones for the shower)
  • Bug spray... seriously, you'll want this!
  • $$ always have cash on you no matter what. A lot of times banks will cut off your card as you nickel and dime your visa at the gas pump or a state park will require a small fee. 
  • $$ for merch
  • $$ for food truck
  • $$ for coffee
  • Camera or GoPro
  • Positive mental attitude

As always, check the weather before you roll to know if you will be needing rain gear.

Happy camping! - Ashmore
