Hi Desert 250 Dual Sport — Jan. 28-29, 2023

Explore the second longest-running dual sport event in SoCal.

Published on 01.11.2023

Back to the desert for the Winter Classic to test all those new Big Boy Christmas toys.

After the LA-B-V, the Hi Desert 250 is the longest running dual-sport event in Southern California. You can choose from five all-day loops, three of which can be cut to an easy 1/2-day loop for Sunday to get home early.

All of the loops can be ridden on Green Sticker bikes by trailering to the College at the south end of Ridgecrest to start/finish your ride. Riders will be spread out on the five loops, so no dust (as if there is no chance of snow or rain in January).


There’s a new special one-day short easy loop for first-time dual-sport riders. It includes a full-blown roll chart and GPS tracks to help beginners learn the art of navigating without getting in over their head on some hard point to point ride.

Choose from six optional loops:

  • Husky Loop, over Fremont Peak or just to Randsburg and back
  • Rand Loop, around the Rands or just to Randsburg and back
  • Jawbone Loop, to Jawbone store or just to Hwy 14 and back
  • Spangler Enduro Trails Loop, with killer Enduro Single Tracks
  • El Paso Loop, short but tough with many Single Tracks
  • New Indian Wells Brewery Loop

Each entry includes an event t-shirt and all GPX tracks. Free entry will be included for the oldest event t-shirt presented during signup. This event is presented by DualSportWest.
