Course Details
This ride starts at the Pioneertown Sound Stage and takes you 25, 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 3-4 hour 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 12.5, 17.5, or 25 miles and you’ll enjoy miles of fast and pedal-free descending all the way back.

Aid stations at mile 12, 18, 25, 32, and 38.
