Noobs Only - Death Valley Dec 7th-9th

Here's my proposal...

An adventure ride through Death Valley with a mix of onroad and offroad just for noobs. This means mostly easy dirt roads or we help each other over obstacles when the going gets tough. We'll still get to see lots of great places and unique spots.

I've been to DV more times than I can count in a truck but only twice on a bike. I'll come up with the exact route in a few weeks.

Let's assume Dec 7th through the 9th as our target dates.

We'll share riding tips, talk farkles and argue about bikes.

Hopefully we'll all improve, grow our confidence and some of you will go back for DV Daze. We will probably have a chase truck that can hold some of your gear, so you can ride with less weight.

Anyone interested?

Update Nov.12th

We are meeting in Ridgecrest Friday morning in the Walmart parking lot. This will allow you to grab any last minute "oh shit" items. Make sure you are gassed up.

We will meet at 8am and roll out by 8:30am. I'll do a roll-call, we'll do introductions, last minute bike checks for loose items, etc.

The itinerary is as follows.

Day 1
Trona Pinnacles
Fuel stop - Top off in Trona
Goler Wash
Mason's Cabin (advanced rider will continue through Mengal Pass to Furnace Creek)
Surprise Canyon
Marble Canyon
Artist Drive
20 Mule trail (if time allows)
Fuel stop - Top off in Furnace Creek
We camp in Echo Canyon

Day 2
20 Mule trail (if not done on day 1)
Beatty (top off on fuel)
Chloride trail
Titus Canyon
Head back to Stovepipe Wells to top off
We make a decision whether to continue to Lippencott mine
Ubehebe Crater
Racetrack (depending on time)
Lippencott Mine (depending on time)
We camp by Lippencott mine (depending on time)

Day 3
Depending on where we left off on Saturday we may backtrack to see the racetrack and/or Lippencott Mine.
Lippencott rd (only for advanced riders)
Hidden Valley rd (for everyone else)
Saline Valley rd (those heading home take it south bound, those who want to continue into Saline Valley take it north bound.
Stop by hot springs
Steele Pass (advanced riders only)
continue on Saline Valley rd for Noobs to Death Valley rd to Big Pine.
