Pioneertown Ride

Pioneertown Ride

March 31 2018
Pioneertown, California, USA

Welcome to the 4th Annual Bike for Bender Pioneertown Fundraiser Ride.

This ride starts at the Pioneertown Sound Stage and takes you 35 (or 50) miles across the desert floors and valleys, up steep and rocky jeep roads, and straight up into the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains up to Big Bear. In Yucca Valley, you pass through a variety of ecozones starting with long stretches of Joshua Tree laden paths and then you work your way up scenic jeep and mining roads to the snow capped mountains at 7000ft.

The climb up is a grueling 3-4hr, 3500/5500ft grinder that is not for the faint of heart! In some areas the sand is deep, the rocks are big, and there are some “hike-a-bike” sections.  You can expect snow, ice and mud at high elevations. The good news is that after the climb, you’ll hit the turn around point at 17.5 (or 25) miles and you’ll enjoy miles of fast and pedal-free descending all the way back.

The nasty (Fun) jeep section will be optional. You technical riders will love it!

What could be more fun than hanging out at an old cowboy and western film town, camping, bbqing and doing an epic ride with your friends?
