Babes Ride Out 6 | The Official Re-Cap

EventsAnya Violet

Babes Ride Out 6 far exceeded our expectations! The beautiful high desert graced us with flawless weather and clear skies all weekend. Well over 1,000 women descended on Joshua Tree and spent the weekend riding some of the best roads Southern California has to offer.

The festivities were jam packed and we want to thank every single person in attendance as well as all of the sponsors that helped to make this event possible!

As Riders began filling up the 40 acres of the Joshua Tree Lake Campground they were greeted in the event space with a Free Public welcome party. Kickstands down, Wine up! Enjoying some wine, meeting new friends and hearing about their journeys is what it’s all about.

We love to highlight the creative women in our community! There was so much talent in the Makers Market this year with chainstitch art by Rowdy Cowlick, DIY leather stamping by Pack Animal and custom stamped metal by Feral Silver. Attendees got to take home a custom hand-done piece or customize their own stuff thanks to these talented ladies. Jenn Hallett was hand painting flash on Biltwell helmets so that ladies can customize their lids.

Kickstands were down and the 805 Beer was flowing. There is nothing quite like a cold beer after a long ride. Thank you to 805 beer for bringing the taste of the central coast to Joshua Tree for Babes Ride Out 6!

The Moto F.A.M. raffle was poppin’ all weekend! Thanks to everyone that donated and participated we raised thousands of dollars to help riders who have sustained life changing injuries from motorcycle accidents.

Nothing brings people together quite like karaoke. Thursday night on the main stage was filled with the sounds of the greatest hits and a few Disney songs! Hahah Babes love Karaoke!

Friday morning after some delicious cold pressed juice, coffee and a breakfast bowl, riders grabbed a Biltwell route map from Mojave Desert Land Trust booth and hit the road. Rides ranging from 60-300 miles took you to Salvation Mountain, up to Big Bear, through the National Park, up to Idyllwild or in to Pioneertown. Every single rider came back with a story about their day.

The Real Deal work shop was putting tools in the hands of everyone that signed up. With workshops in welding, pin striping, and blacksmithing attendees could go home with a new skill or hobby to pursue. The Real Deal bike show was our most popular yet with over 40 motorcycles entered. We love seeing how riders customize their bikes and make them their own!

We at Babes Ride Out feel that it is so important to never take ourselves too seriously. That is why we loved the Girl on a Moto camp games on Friday night. Babes were lining up to go head to head in the sumo suit wresting ring. Who ever said that a motorcycle event can’t be like adult summer camp?

The ladies of Atwyld had their full collection on display at BRO6. Their mission is to get more women to ride in protective gear by designing a line that looks good, feels good and wears well on and off the bike. So many riders got to see that riding gear does not have to be ill-fitting or bright pink. Thank you Atwyld for all that you are doing to promote safety for the motorcycle industry.

Westside Moto Academy handed out hundreds of bright neon safety vests to riders throughout the weekend. They offered their expertise as motorcycle instructors to give pointers to new riders and talk technique with more experienced riders. Not to mention they showed us how its done in the Triumph Moto games by getting 1st place in the technical course.

Friday night we got to recognize some very important people up on stage. It all started with the Real Deal Bike show winners. These ladies had some very unique bikes and it was so fun to be able to recognize their efforts on stage with custom built trophies from the Real Deal workshop. Next, we invited all the ladies over the age of 60 years old to come up on stage. These are our mothers, grandmothers, aunts and friends and many of them have been riding since before we were born. The oldest rider there was 68 years young and WOW did she have a story to tell. It is so inspiring to see the new generation find joy and love in the motorcycle world but it is forever important to respect our elders and the wisdom they have gathered through the years. The diversity at Babes Ride Out events is un-paralleled.

With clear skies and perfect weather Friday and Saturday night were ideal for the Star Party and Astronomy Show in the Astronomy Arts theatre! Deep space telescopes, sky maps, and virtual reality tour to Mars were all part of this amazing experience brought to you by the Southern California Desert Video Astronomers. Joshua Tree is a dark sky community and, for many, they have never seen the night sky quite like that before.

DJ Ry Toast and La Flaca Lee kept the dance party going and the energy high throughout the night as the dance floor was packed! Some stayed up until the music stopped while others headed back to camp for some fireside hangs with new friends.

Babes Ride Out 6

Red Wing Heritage Womens hosted a “Mamas who ride” meet up on Saturday morning. The idea that when you become a mother you must forfeit yourself and your passions for the sake of your family has become antiquated. Children and family rise to the top but should not replace a woman’s identity. This meet-up was about getting together these inspiring Mama’s who exemplify this modern woman.

Saturday was another perfect day for riding. Aside from all of the great routes to ride, the town of Joshua Tree also has a farmers market as well as the HWY 62 art tours that many riders decided to experience on Saturday.

Thanks to Sena, Babes were able to demo Bluetooth devices throughout the weekend and see what it is like to ride connected. Their blind-folded obstacle course was harder than ever this year and required teams of two to complete the challenge bind-folded using only the guidance of their partner through their Bluetooth device. It was hilarious!

Rolling back to camp we went straight in to the Triumph Moto Games. This was our biggest and best year yet! There were over 70 riders participating and several hundred more there to spectate. The competition was fierce and it was amazing to see so much talent on two wheels. The technical course, the slow race and the barrel race all take certain skills and patience to complete. There were so many types of riders and so many types of bikes involved! Choppers, dualsports, adventure bikes, café racers, baggers… you name it. Nothing like doing a slalom course on a chopper. Thanks to everyone for participating and to Triumph Motorcycles for bringing everyone together.

Had a friend that could not make it to BRO6? Triumph had their mobile post office on site where you could send a post card and let them know they blew it!

As of Saturday night, the talented tattoo team counted about 150 tattoos that they had done throughout the weekend. Over 100 ladies are headed home with a permanent Babes Ride Out souvenir! Thank you to the talented artist that come out every year! We love you!

Saturday night everyone gathered near the main stage to see who would be taking home the amazing raffle prizes. Thank you to all the amazing artists and brands that contributed to the raffle this year! The raffle announcement were followed by one of our favorite awards of the weekend. The “Most Miles Ridden” Award! This goes to the Babe that took down the most miles to get to Babes Ride Out 6. The winner rode all the way from New Jersey and zig-zagged across the country totaling in over 5,000 miles! DAMN! Thank you for coming!

Another important recognition goes out to the mother and daughter duos that ride out to our events. This year we had over 20 which is more than ever before. What an awesome bonding experience to be able to ride out with your mom.

We had a very special guest join us on Saturday! Her name is Grace McKean. She has been riding motorcycles since 1946. In her 84 years she has seen so many changes in the world of motorcycles and Babes Ride Out 6 was her first time attending a ladies only motorcycle event. She came with photos and articles about her life on two wheels and we all walked away inspired by her. Thank you for coming Grace! See you next year!

No Babes Ride Out event is complete without some live tunes. This year Yachty By Nature had the crowd so pumped up! The sea of captains hats said it all. Thank you for playing the hits and keeping the crowd dancing! Babes LOVE Yacht Rock!

 Smooth Sailing! Yachty by Nature

Before everyone hit the road home, they were able to stop by the Lucky Wheels Garage booth and check tire pressure and tighten bolts. Thanks to Lucky Wheels for providing tools for all the Babes!

babes ride out

Babes Ride Out 6 was such an amazing event! There were Babes from all walks of life and on all different types of motorcycles. Riders came from near and far to join together and connect over a love of two wheels. Thank you for coming to experience the beautiful high desert and all it has to offer. Thank you for being such an amazing community! See you next year!

Babes Ride Out 6 | Everything you Need to Know (Consolidated)

EventsAshmore Ellis

It’s HERE!!!! We are so excited to consolidate ALL information for Babes Ride Out 6. Below is everything you need to know + rules and regulations of the event to ensure you are aware of the campsite’s policies. Please give this a read in its entirety (maybe a few times) as every single thing we can think of that you’d want to know is below:

Ride Safe: Please take your time and ride your own ride on the way to Babes Ride Out 6. Read through the safety section on our blog to get some tips on riding in a group, riding in the wind, practice and a lot more.

Weather and Roads: Joshua Tree had a little bit of a flood last week but the town has cleared the roads and everything is open. However, there are some patches of dirt, sand and debris here and there to watch out for. DO NOT speed on Sunfair rd. It is a very rough road with bumps and sometimes potholes! Please approach the campsite with extreme caution. The speed limit in camp is 10 mph. If you blow by camp, you'll hit deep sand 40 yards past the entrance. We see it every single year and still can't believe anyone would haul ass into the void like that. PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME & SLOW DOWN! There are dips and bumps that will catch you off guard if you are speeding / not paying attention. Weather looks to be beautiful this week and next but as a responsible motorcyclist, you are 100% in charge of checking for roads closures, detours, weather, before you ride anywhere (not just to Babes <3). The most accurate source for weather in the area is Joshua Tree Accuweather Report.

RULES AND REGS

No drinking and riding. We have gate staff that will not let you leave if you any indication of intoxication.

It gets VERY dark out in this area so we encourage all riders to be in by dark for your own safety. Registration closes at 10 pm. If arriving after, please consider staying the night in town. Our security will be at the gate to direct to a separate after hours section so you don't mow down people trying to sleep. You’ll have to check in the following morning.

 THERE ARE NO DIRT ROADS THAT LEAD TO BABES RIDE OUT! If your GPS takes you to a dirt road, re-route! This is another thing we see this every year so be aware of your route and take responsibility for your safety. The event is srtaight down Sunfair Rd which is right off HWY 62 (easy). Remeber that old joke "If your GPS jumps off a bridge would you?". 

No burnouts on site, helmets on at all times, no drinking & riding. Our security will be on patrol so if they catch anyone doing these things, they’ll get the boot for good. 
 
THE BASICS 

We want to ensure EVERYONE has fun, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation.
 
I am taking video, doing social media takeovers, snapping imagery for a brand or media source, what is the policy?

BRO events are private so no commercial photography, video, etc are allowed without consent. If you are there to cover the event for a brand, publication, or other media source, you’d need to obtain permission prior to event by emailing info@babesrideout.com. This is a strict rule to provide a non-intrusive environment for all of our attendees. Imagery for personal use & social are 100% awesome and encouraged. Snap it and post it girl!
 
What ticket do I need?

Every single lady must have either a MOTORCYCLIST or NON MOTORCYCLIST ticket to the event.  If you bought a moto ticket and now driving, that is ok, no need to email us to change your ticket type but you will need a car pass unless you are hopping in someone else’s car or back of bike. 
 
Do I get a specific camping spot assigned to me?

No spots are pre-assigned but you are guaranteed a space. No cars can drive into the motorcycle camping for safety reasons. If a car is hauling your junk and you are camping with the motos, you’ll have to “sherpa” all your stuff over. Please be courteous of the space and make friends with your neighbors. If you want to ensure that you get a camp spot next to your friends we suggest arriving together.
 
Please Note: Each time you enter the campsite, get in the habit of showing your wristband. Security will be checking.
 
What is up with food and water?

We will have food trucks on site (some take cash only, some are card friendly) a full bar with drinks, smoothies, coffees, espresso drinks, and there is a camp store that is fully stocked! Feel free to bring your own coolers with food, water, booze etc or plan if you’ve got special needs. We’ve got plenty of free water for you so keep refilling your canteen. Cell service can be spotty so credit cards are not guaranteed to work so bring cash (ATMS are in town but not on site) for merch! There are grocery stores, gas, restaurants etc 10 miles away. Google the area and see what is available BEFORE you come if you need anything specific to ensure you have a great time. 

NO GLASS IS ALLOWED ON SITE! Box wine and cans ladies! Transfer any hard alcohol into plastic bottles. 

NO SMOKING IN FESTIVAL SPACE. Sorry, its the rules. If you smoke near camp, please dispose of your butts properly.
 
Can I bring my boyfriend or husband?

No, this is a ladies only event. Please check out the Sierra Stake Out, Blue Ridge Stake Out, White Lighting Campout, Kernville Kampout, El Diablo Run, and the million other moto events that are out there that you can enjoy together <3
 
Can I bring my kids and non service pets?

The event is not kid / pet friendly. Service angels only. It’s rattlesnake season so please be aware of those as they do tend to hide in bushes and dead leaves.

 Can my friend drive in drop my stuff off and leave?

Sorry, unless they have a ticket to the event and car pass we will not let them on the property. 
 
Are there ID requirements or an age limit?

Must be 21+ to attend any Babes Ride Out events.
 
What can't I bring to the event?

Weapons, signage, easy ups, professional video equipment, merchandise to sell, flyers, stickers, handouts, fireworks, pets, kids, a bad attitude.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
NO ma'am! Just show up with you I.D, you'll be on the list. 
 
What is the refund policy?

No refunds. Sorry, please do not ask. 
 
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Sorry, your ticket must match your ID. If someone bought your ticket or transferred a ticket to you and did not put it in your name, you must show up together so the ticket holder can collect both tickets. If the person you bought the ticket from did not change the name on the ticket, sorry, you’ll need to get your $$ back from them as we have no record of your personal transactions etc.
 
Oh man, I BLEW IT and did not get a motorcyclist ticket OR a non-motorcyclist ticket. Can I show up and buy one at the gate?”

Girl, you’ve had months to grab a ticket! Sadly we will have to see you next year. Please do not show up at gates, we’ve already planned portos, food, water, etc all around the # of people that have registered. We won’t be able to accommodate ya.

That sums it up! Hope you all have a beautiful ride to Babes Ride Out 6! If you have any additional questions you can ask any one of the “STAFF BABES” when you arrive.

Babes Ride Out 6 Packing List & Gear Guide

EventsAshmore Ellis

Coming to Babes Ride Out 6 in beautiful Joshua Tree, CA? We can't wait to have you join us for a weekend of riding and good times. Our private campsite is located 10 miles from the heart of town where you can easily find gas, a liquor stores, ATMS, a Walmart, grocery stores, little bars & grills, incredible places for lunch or snacks, and some locally owned shops. There is also a camp store on site that has literally everything you may have forgotten to bring as well. We've got world class food trucks on site (click HERE to see the menus) and all the FREE water you can drink thanks to our hydration stations! 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 HERE! 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. Nothing bums out the staff more than sorting through discarded gear. We strongly suggest investing in a tent you’ll have for over a decade. My favorite is the Big Agnes Manzanares HV w/ mtnGLOW (aka LED lights build in).

    • 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. Don’t forget we are in a dark sky community so it is…well…dark!
      •    Water bottle and camp mug - We are trying to leave 0 trace! Please bring your own camp mug and 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 desert dirt off
      •    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. The Mojave Desert’s dust is more toxic than you think if breathed in during heavy dust storms. 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.
      •    Multitool
      •    Tool kit / roll
      •    Swimsuit + 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!)
      •    $$ for food truck (click HERE to see the menus) for vegetarian, vegan, non gluten folks, and those of you who are "I can eat anything" style campers. 
      •    $$ for coffee and presses juices (chase a cappuccino with a green juice for maximum cleansing of the system)
      •    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 :)

A Looks into Ashmore’s “Camp Kit”


Toiletries: I typically go nuts at the Target mini's aisle. Tiny shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, razor, deodorant, Advil, hand sanitizer, tooth paste, compact toothbrush, chap stick are all a must. The desert is incredibly dry. Forget something? The camp store on site will have it! There are an over abundance of portos that are cleaned daily, real flushing toilets (hell yeah!), and showers on site. We got you girl! 

Packing Your Motorcycle Safely: Packing your moto safety is one of the most important things you will do. Reading this can save your life or someone else's. Please take the time and click HERE

Hot Tips

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

  • Hit dirt? TURN AROUND! All roads that lead to Babes Ride Out are paved so do not trust GPS if it tries to take you off-road.

  • 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 to know if you will need rain gear during your journey to BRO6. Click HERE to see what the forecast is calling for at the campsite. You can pretty much guarantee that you will hit some wind on some part of your journey to the desert so make sure you are prepared. Click HERE to get some tips on how to ride in the wind and stay safe. If you need to get anything, we highly recommend going to backcountry.com or REI  they have it all and you still have time to order any supplies online before the event. Happy camping! - Ashmore
