Babes Ride Out

Suggested Packing List for Babes Ride Out 7

Event InfoAshmore Ellis

You really don’t need much for Babes Ride Out 7. Our new venue is located right off the 101 and close to gas, ATMS, Target, grocery stores, little bars & grills, incredible places for lunch or snacks, and some locally owned shops. We've got world class food trucks on site and all the FREE water you can drink thanks to our hydration stations up at the barn. 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.

•    Have your bike serviced BEFORE you come to the event. Make sure that baby is tuned up and roadworthy! You are responsible for your own bike to, from, and during the event. Go through the S&S Cycle check list and fix all the issues. Click HERE


•    Check your motorcycle insurance (does it have roadside assistance? get familiar with your options before you come) If not, 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. 

•    SAFETY FIRST! hit up the Motorcycle Safety section on our website! It’s full of tips and reminders to help you stay safe on the road. Not sure you are ready for the ride, no worries! Babes Drive Out! You have nothing to prove and car passes can be purchased in advance. The most important thing is that you enjoy yourself!

Packing Suggestions

  • Tent (there are no trees for hammocks at the campgrounds). As tempting as it is to head over to Walmart and grab something cheap only to toss it after a use please re consider. and rent from our on site partner Arrive Oudoors.

  • Sleeping Pad - this thermal layer will keep you warm and give you a bit of extra comfort. We personally use Big Agnes Q-Core Deluxe

  • Sleeping Bag + Camp pillow - quality is everything. If you live in Southern Ca, think about investing in a 30 degree style bag. I use the Big Agnes Fish Hawk 30. It’s light weight and packs down super small

  • Eye mask and ear plugs. Trust us! You will never have a more blissful sleep!

  • Headlamp- LED is the best way to go. You’ll need this especially going back and forth between camp & stage area + those late night Porto potty trips.

  • Water bottle - We are trying to leave 0 trace! Please bring your own water bottle for mixed drinks, free water re-fills, and tasters!

  • Wet wipes / face wipes - My go to is Burt’s Bees wipes. They will save your life if you remember to use them each night to wipe the dirt off

  • Toiletries + EXTRA toilet paper. It's for your own good. 

  •  Extra fuel (check out Lowbrow Customs fuel canister at $19.95)

  • Clothes for warm days and cool nights (HOT TIP! Waterproof compression sacks can fit everything you need and more at a fraction of the space). Toss in a bandanna too. Don't pack too much, clean underwear is key. Pants, shirts, etc can be worn over and over. 

  • Zip ties

  • A couple of sandwich bags in case it rains and you need to create a waterproof way of carrying your iphone.

  • Battery or AUX phone charger as there is no power sockets available to attendees

  • Multi-tool

  • Tool kit / roll

  • Swimsuit if you plan on hitting the beach + micro fiber towel for showers (they dry super fast and pack down great!)

  • Flip flops (super shitty ones for the shower)

  • $$ 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 (wait until you see the exclusives we have for you!) 

  • $$ for food trucks & coffee vendor

  • Camera or GoPro

  • Positive mental attitude. Be nice, say hello to your neighbor, and remember, ladies are here for ALL different reasons so respect each other :) 

Friendly reminder that if you have special needs, please do some research on what is around food & accommodation wise to the event. We are thrilled to have you and want this experience to be amazing for you!

Hot Tips

  • Keep a printout of directions and emergency #s on you

  • Plan your gas stops (ALWAYS)

  • Give your travel plans to a family member

  • Bring a battery pack to charge phones. My moto has an adapter so I can charge while riding. See if that is an option for you, it changed my life! If not, look into OutdoorTech’s battery chargers. I always bring mine as a back up.

  • Call your bank and let them know you are traveling. When you nickel and dime the gas pump to fill up your moto, banks usually think it’s fraud and will cut your card off.

  • HYDRATE! Drink water at every single stop you make and stay hydrated at the event. I drink about a gallon of water a day while at BRO.

  • Create a icloud folder to share your trip among friends! These memories will last a lifetime

Weather: As always, check the weather before you roll
