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
