This years Bishop Dual Sport Ride is shaping up to be another banner year. Bishop is an amazing town that sits in the shadow of the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Any outdoor activity you want to do is there. Hiking, fishing, camping and riding.  Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort is just an hour North, Death Valley is an hour south-east. Bishop has a charming small town feel with great little shops and restaurants.  This makes for a family friendly ride. That’s right…bring your family!

The Bishop Dual Sport Ride is a truly unique riding format with three days of riding. You can ride one trail a day, 50 miles a day, 4 or 5 trails a day or 200 miles a day. Its up to you. Want to ride Friday and spend the next day with the family in Mammoth, ok. Want to go fishing…ok. Want to go to a ghost town in Bodi…ok. Its up to you. There are over 600 miles of two track and single track for you to choose from. Each day you check out and pick the route you want to run. It could be Coyote Flats, Black Canyon, Woodcutters or Benton or Mammoth long route, to name a few, its your choice. You ride your trail and just check-in at the end of the ride so everyone knows your safe, then chose another route or stay in for dinner.

This year includes fun and challenging new routes. With all the choices in routes you can be sure to get a no-bottle neck, dust free, whoop free ride. How sweet is that!  Saturday night there is a BBQ provided by the Bishop Chamber of Commerce. Pulled pork sandwiches and plenty of sides. You will not go away hungry. There is also a raffle with tons of prizes.


Note: This is a ride designed for experienced off-road Dual Sport riders. Once on the trails, there are no bail-outs. The routes are not designed for large Adventure Bikes.  However, there are many dirt roads, two track and easy single track in the area. The event organizers will be happy to help you find easier tracks for big Adventure Bikes.
