Babes Ride Out East Coast 3

Getting Lost Isn't a Thing Anymore | A Day Riding Connected Through the Catskills with Sena

REVIEWS, Riding Routes, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

Riding in new territory, especially the Catskills, when roads often have multiple names since they were forged hundreds of years ago can be a nightmare. Thankfully we had our Senas with us to make the route a breeze. Read on to see where we wandered during Babes Ride Out East Coast 3.

After we selected our destination for the day, Dundas Castle, we synced up our Sena Bluetooth sets, tapped in the directions, and felt confident we'd make it to our destination, first stop, world famous Roscoe Diner for lunch.

The roads were a little  bet up from the harsh winter the east coast had received. Our ride lead was able to communicate dangers well in advance.

Once we made it to Roscoe we enjoyed one of the best diner experiences. With a full stomach we were bound and determined to find the infamous Dundas Castle. The area the castle is located is thick with trees, so much in fact you can't see the stones of the house because it blends in so seamlessly with it's environment. Even with directions, we got lost. The best part about it is that even though we split up from the group to try and located this place, we were able to stay synced to our group via Sena Bluetooth.

If you are going to get turned around... this is a great place to do it!

Being able to communicate "where should we go next" is simply the best

Being able to stay connected, even when lost, was a true blast. Once we decided to turn around and head in a different direction, we quickly came up on the castle. Of course it was in the last diection we tried. 

Dundas Castle is a historic house in Roscoe, New York modeled after Dundas Castle. It is also known as "Craig-E-Clare". It was built between 1915 and 1924 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.

Finding our way winding through the Catskills was a blast and it was even more sharing instant laughs, "look outs", and jokes along the way. Cheers to staying connected!

Babes Ride Out East Coast 3 | Final Info

EventsAshmore Ellis

Ladies! We can’t wait to host you this weekend at Babes Ride Out East Coast 3! Here is some important info you'll want to know before you arrive Friday. 

1. Friendly reminder, gates are at noon, no early birds please :)

2. No need to print ticket (totally fine if you do) but we have you on the list.

3. When you arrive, you'll be flagged into registration. You must get your wrist band, bike band, and sign waiver before you enter the campgrounds. Once you have finished registration, our wonderful flaggers will be guiding you in and showing you where to park. Reminder that no cars are allowed in the motorcycle camping areas so if you have a chase, they’ll have to sherpa over your camping gear (don’t worry; it’s not far from car parking). There are no assigned spots but we have plenty of room for everyone J

4. We will have car passes on site for cash purchase for ANY ticket holding motorcyclists who decides to drive instead of ride. No need to switch “ticket” type or email us with your change of plans.

RULES AND REGS

HELMETS ON AT ALL TIMES. This is a rule that is not only ours, but the campsites as well. Anyone caught riding without a helmet on the property, hot dogging or doing burn outs will be asked to leave. Thank you sooo much for your cooperation here!

WHAT YOU CAN BRING:

Feel free to bring your own food for cooking, alcohol, whatever you like to help make your weekend more comfortable! The camp store sells wood and we will have group fires near the pavilion for you to enjoy.

$$ CASH FOR

  •  Food
  • Coffee
  • Babes Ride Out Merch
  • Tattoos
  • Donations for Maker's Market

The township of Narrowsburg is within walking distance and has gas, ATMS, grocery store, ice cream, restaurants, a really cool bar at the Narrowsburg Inn (HIGHLY recommend checking out, built in the 1840's, was a speakeasy & brothel during the prohibition....and haunted).

The campsite has a fully stock camp store with everything you want, need, and may have forgotten to pack. 

PLEASE DO NOT BRING: ladies who did not buy a ticket (wristbands will be checked this year every time you re-enter the grounds), boyfriends, husbands, animals, kids, weapons of any kind (firearms, hatchets, bow and arrows, slingshots, BB guns,or anything that can be used as a weapon), no signs/banners, no eazy ups (sorry! it obstructs the natural beauty of the camp) no fireworks, no items to vend or handouts like stickers, buttons, flyers as we end up spending hours picking up these up as 99% of it gets trashed. Leave no trace :) Our security will be on patrol so please be kind when they ask you to put these items away or ask you and your uninvited "friend" to leave. Sadly these rules are in place for a reason but will be enforced to ensure EVERYONE has a great time!

Meet Michele Mazza | Featured Tattoo Artist at Babes Ride Out East Coast 3

Artist SeriesAshmore Ellis

We are thrilled to have 5 tattooer on site this year at Babes Ride Out East Coast 3. Meet Michele Mazza from Woodbridge Conneticut. It's Michele's first Babes Ride Out event so let's make sure to give her the warmest welcome. 

What do you do / for how long have you done it? I've been tattooing since 1997 with a bit of a break in between for a couple of years to stay home with my twins who are now 6.

What do you love most about what you do? I love meeting new people often and hearing their stories and designing a piece unique for them. I love that my job means I get to be creative most of the time!

file__storage_emulated_0_Pictures_Instagram_IMG_20180404_094056_292.jpg

Where do you come from and how did tattooing come into your life? I'm from CT but spent some time living in Fl, after leaving Ringling school of art and design in FL I came back home to seek out an apprenticeship and get more tattoos! I met an artist named Hens and was going to discuss my back piece with him.  He offered to apprentice me when I showed him my drawings and expressed my hope to find a mentor and learn to tattoo. After a traditional apprenticeship eventually I began working with him.

Tell us about motorcycles in your life. I had one years ago but I never stuck with it. I witnessed someone I knew crash and die right in front of me and I couldn't shake that image from my brain. I never felt comfortable on a bike after that and gave it up. 

How did you hear about Babes Ride Out? My friend and co worker Tracey Rose asked me to do it with her last year but I couldn't make it. This year I was hoping it would all work out! I love the idea of it, I love all of these awesome women who ride! I won't lie, I'll appreciate them and live vicariously through them from my minivan though! haha 

What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out? I think it's great that this event supports empowering women and just seems like a really great event overall!

Moto F.A.M Raffle Heats Up at Babes Ride OUt East Coast 3 Thanks to Our Generous Contributors!

SponsorsAshmore Ellis

We are so excited to welcome Moto F.A.M back to host our annual raffle at Babes Ride out East Coast 3. Everyone who attends gets (1) raffle ticket with the ability to buy as many as they want! We can't thank these brand enough for so generously donating to the event. So where does this $$ go? Half of the funds gathered go to helping fallen riders to ease the stresses accidents can cause, the other half to helping disaster victims, shelters, and other charities that focus on humanitarianism (and the the 4 legged kind too). As you can see, every single dime goes into help someone else. Thanks to these contributors and you, a huge impact will be made in honor of our community and that's something to celebrate! 

HOW MOTO F.A.M. HELPS

Moto F. A. M. raises money several different ways throughout the year. We team up with different motorcycle shops, companies and motorcycle related events to raise money. We also take monetary donations from companies and individuals that believe in the work we do. This allows us to donate $500 to each rider that qualifies for help. Once we donate we post the riders fundraising campaign information on our social media & website, so that our supporters may also make a donation to the rider in need.  

uring this process we help partner up riders requesting help with other riders that have already been through an accident & the recovery process. That way they can hopefully ease the stress of the situation and offer them support through the process. 

Lastly we have been working hard to find ways to increase riders safety and work towards accident prevention. Starting January 2018 we will be hosting and funding Advanced Rider Training courses. More information will be provided soon. 

We are always working on new ways to help improve the riding community and the way we impact it.
