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 For those novice moto campers, or those who have old outdated gear, or don’t want to bother with packing all their crap, we decided to partner with a quality outdoor rental company, Arrive, that rents all sorts of camping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.

We suggest arriving with the people you want to camp next to.

I don't ride yet / I don't have my license / am a new rider / scared to come / coming solo / losing it cause I am a ball of nerves and I need you to walk me through this cause I am about to throw up!

Girrrrrrllll, we have ALL been there! Listen, this event started as 50 ladies not knowing each other and has turned into a global movement. Why? Cause it's such a laid back, fun, and welcoming community. We offer car passes to purchase along with your general admission to those who are not riders yet or are new to riding and unsure they feel ready to make the trek. On site, there will be activities for you to participate in that are moto related even if you never sat on a bike before (stay tuned for info on that!). If you want to connect to others who are coming, click HERE and it will take you to the official facebook event page for this particular event that serves as a forum to converse with others. If you are driving, the best way to be a hero is posting that you'd be happy to meet a group of riders and be their chase / haul supplies! No one is more grateful than a motorcyclist with a chase :)

Can my husband, boyfriend, son set up my stuff and leave?

No un-ticketed guests are allowed into the event space. If you can’t set it up yourself or are willing to learn by the time the event takes place, please leave your rig at home or rent one of the units on site.

What ticket and passes do I buy? Looks kinda confusing!

No problem! We can break this down easily for you :)

  • GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE- This IS a ticket to the event and every attendee must have one to enter the property.

  • CAR PARKING - NON-REFUNDABLE- This is NOT a ticket to the event. Each car or truck must purchase this parking pass for their 4-wheel vehicle to park on the property during the event. Make sure that you and all of your passengers have a GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE ticket to the event as these are not sold at the door.

  • CAR +TRAILER x TOY HAULER x RV PARKING (NO HOOKUPS) - NON-REFUNDABLE: This is NOT a ticket to the event. Towing anything, have a RV, toy hauler, trailer, renting one of the RVS on the property already? You need this pass as your towing set up, rig, or rented rig takes up considerable room on the property. Make sure that you and all of your passengers / trailer guests have a GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE ticket to the event as these are not sold at the door.

**There are no day passes or discount passes if you are not staying on the property. We have to pay for the space and amenities no matter if you stay there an hour or the full weekend**

Please email info@babesrideout.com if you have any questions. We do encourage you to ride your own moto to the event to save in costs but understand that is not always an option.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring everything you need to be comfortable camping under the stars! We will have a suggested packing list posting soon with tips and tricks on how to safely pack your moto.

Please do not bring: outside alcohol (this is a rule of the property) people who did not buy a ticket, boyfriends, husbands, animals, kids, signs/banners, eazy ups (sorry! it obstructs the natural beauty of the camp and it is far too windy), fireworks, items to vend, handouts like stickers, buttons, flyers as we end up spending hours picking up these items off the desert floor. Leave no trace :) Our security will be on patrol so please be kind when they ask you to put these items away or ask your uninvited "friend" to leave. The last thing we want to do is be difficult but we want EVERYONE to have fun, not just you :)

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We go off the pre printed guest list as printed tickets are not honored at the gate. Simply bring your ID.

What is the refund policy?

100% NO REFUNDS under no circumstance as this is a self-funded event.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

No. The name on the ticket MUST match your ID. You can buy a ticket for a friend but make sure the ticket is in their name or show up together so you can collect both and hand off to the other ticket(s) to your friend. No nicknames on tickets, we have 0 idea who “Full Throttle Frieda” is.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

A Guide to Riding the Catskills During Babes Ride Out East Coast 4

Sponsors, EventsAshmore Ellis

Why is Babes Ride Out East Coast in the Catskills? Because the riding is EPIC! Every event we focus on is about getting out on your motorcycle and enjoying the day with some like minded people. If you stay behind at camp, you’ll be bored so start planning your rides and routes as there is so much to see!

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
