Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock & Rye is Coming to Babes Ride Out 7 x Central Coast

SponsorsAshmore Ellis

Babes Ride Out 7 is bringing together a new location with some familiar faces. We are excited to have Slow & Low rejoin us onsite for this year's Central Coast event in October!

Babes Ride Out

If you weren't with us in Narrowsburg for EC3, Slow & Low is an 84 proof, extra-dry, Rock & Rye - a rye whiskey-based bottled (Old Fashioned) cocktail. Their version is the perfect balance of aged straight rye whiskey, air-dried navel oranges from Florida, 100 percent raw honey from Western Pennsylvania, Angostura Bitters and a small dose of rock candy. Perfect for enjoying straight, as a cocktail or paired as a shot with an 805 beer.

Babes Ride Out

The Slow & Low crew will be pouring their liquid sunshine all weekend long at base camp and will be hosting a very special Rock & Rye whiskey tasting via a 1900’s steam locomotive on Friday evening! First come, first serve - so be sure to sign-up once you arrive! ! 

Babes Ride Out

Babes interested in learning more about Slow & Low can connect with the brand on their Instagram and Facebook channels. Stay tuned for more info and see you at Babes Ride Out 7 x Central Coast!





Babes Ride Out is Partnering with the Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo

Event Info, Locals, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

ECOSLO is excited to take part in another powerful movement on the Central Coast and beyond! The Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo, known as ECOSLO, is a half-century old non-profit with a mission to educate, advocate, and act to protect and enhance the natural environment and human well-being of San Luis Obispo County. As the only Environmental Center in the County -- and the first, their small but mighty staff work all hours educating the public on local environmental issues, removing trash from our beautiful beaches, and motivating community members to think eco-consciously. Come October, ECOSLO will have hosted over 60 clean ups in 2019, extracting over 4,000 pounds of trash from entering our waterways, and protecting marine and terrestrial ecosystems. There’s no doubt that even the smallest changes in our habits as a human species can drastically change that number. 

Babes Ride Out 7 x ECOSLO

Along with our cleanups throughout SLO County, ECOSLO has an array of programs. Volunteer with us at one of the many SLO County Parks to take part in a Nature Project such as tree planting or picnic bench building. Or take a leisurely, educational hike with one of our volunteer docents throughout the City of SLO Open Space and learn about the local history, flora and fauna. ECOSLO is also one of the spear-headers when it comes to taking action in local advocacy initiatives as it concerns to land conservation, waste reduction and renewable energy.

We’re proud to be representing and protecting San Luis Obispo County. It’s our home, and we hope you will treat it as your home when you are here as well.

There are many ways to be eco-conscious when venturing outdoors - even on motorcycle (stay tuned for our next blog update!), and that’s why ECOSLO was so excited to hear about Babes Ride Out exploring Santa Margarita and all that the Central Coast has to offer! There was an instant connection between the two organizations riding on the fact that they’re both led by fearless women - we knew it would be a great match. 

Chat with the ECOSLO Team at our booth on Friday and Saturday and learn about the magic of SLO County and the Central Coast, and purchase your very own Bamboo Utensil Kit to carry along for the ride!

Introducing On-Site Camping Gear Rental Partner Arrive Outdoors

DIY Tips, Events, Safety, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

For many riders, camping off the bike is still very new (and that’s ok!). It took me years to dial in my camping kit and learn how to safely pack it on the back of my motorcycle efficiently. For those novice moto campers, or those who have old outdated gear, or don’t want to bother with packing all their crap, we decided to partner with a quality outdoor rental company, Arrive, that rents all sorts of camping gear and will be on site to distribute it to you when you…well… arrive. Make sure to reserve your gear early cause they will sell out of many of the tents, sleeping bags, pads, camp chairs….you get the picture.

How do I reserve my gear to be on site to pick up when I arrive?

When you order gear from Arrive, use code “BRO” at checkout and choose warehouse pickup. You’ll see the Arrive booth upon entering the gates for the event. All you need to do is bring your ID to their tent , after you are parked in your zone, and pick up your items! Please note that you are responsible for setting up, breaking down, and of course returning rental gear to their booth by 10:00AM Sunday morning.

Click HERE to get started as all items must be pre-booked through their website prior to the event.

Now you can travel to the Central Coast without all your camping gear strapped to the back of your motorcycle (which can be pretty dangerous if you’ve never packed your gear before and tested it out. You’d be amazed how quickly items shake out and into your power band which causes an immediate HALT ( not fun)).

About Arrive

A little about our partner - Arrive is an outdoor experience company that is transforming the outdoor industry into an easier and more sustainable model. The main goal of Arrive is to help people experience the outdoors without the burden of buying, cleaning and storing gear. Arrive partners directly with over 40 premium outdoor gear brands to offer their gear for rent, everything from tents and sleeping bags to stoves, headlamps, and blankets! If you have any questions about what you’ll need at Babes Ride Out, just give them a call at 213 534-8852.

Babes Ride Out East Coast 4

GROUP RIDES: While we as Babes Ride Out do not organized group rides due to it not being safe with so many different skill sets attending, we do encourage ladies to meet under the barn each morning at the merch & raffle booth zone to meet, greet, and link up for potential rides based on skill, bike size, and personal preference. Who you choose to ride with and what route is 100% up to you this weekend :) The great thing about the Catskills is there is endless beauty and twisting roads in every directions so you can’t really go wrong. Below, you’ll find a few suggestions but by no means is this “all there is”. As a motorcyclist, 1/2 the fun is planning your own route, checking for road closures, gas stops based on your tank size, seeking out neat tourist attractions etc.

MAPS & ADVICE ON BEING PREPARED: We will have route maps on site for the below but they are not overly complicated with .345 miles turn notifications etc. , they serve as more of a guide for those who have already downloaded the directions. This is YOUR adventure so go anywhere, see anything, and ride at your own pace! Below are just a few of our favorites , so take em or leave em’ , up to you! If none of these adventures suite your taste, feel free to research the area and find your own personal adventure. The Catskills are FULL of amazing history and folklore that will keep you busy all day long. 

We strongly suggest downloading directions to each spot (we've provided clickable links) as cell service usually is void in the mountains
