District 37/OC Dualies' Beaumont to Idyllwild Dual Sport/Adventure Bike Ride, May 16

This first section from the District 37 message board:

There is still time to get your entry in for the OC Dualies' Beaumont Charity Ride. The event is limited to 75 riders, so don’t wait much longer or you could miss out on a great day of riding! The ride takes place on Saturday, May 16.

The ride begins at Beaumont Powersports, located two blocks north of the 10 Fwy on Beaumont Ave (Hwy 79). It goes through Hemet on the way to the Hixon and Alessandro Trails, around Lake Hemet, then into Idyllwild for gas and lunch. Joanne's will once again be our designated lunch spot. They have awesome food and entertainment in a relaxed outdoor setting. After lunch we hit more trails on the way back to Beaumont.

There will be Hard and Easy way routes available, as well as an Adventure Bike route, so all skill levels are welcome.

There will be a rollchart as well as GPS downloads available for navigation. If you pre-enter you will receive your GPS download a few days before the ride. We find this really helps get everyone through check in and out and on the trail faster.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to our charity, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We Ride for Kids!

Here's the flyer/entry form:

I have ridden this ride many times and the easy section is mostly easy with maybe a moderate trail thrown in. The hard section, I've heard, does have sections that will test you. Those are the two trails mentioned above.

There's a live band at the lunch stop, Joanne's in Idyllwild. They have great food.

Some roll chart holders will be available at signups, but you can buy yours ahead of time at Flanders Company in Duarte: http://flandersco.com/contact.html

Parking for the ride is around the corner from the motorcycle shop down 7th Street where it dead ends into a parking lot on Magnolia. You'll see others parking there. Ride your bike back to Beaumont Motorcycle shop, park it next to the store, and go inside to sign up.

Here's a map of the store: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...s.kA9bAy7u2P7I

does it go through beaumont?

I've heard from other riders that beaumont was some of the best riding in socal...but it conveniently became closed off once I moved to socal in 2012

if the sanctioned event opens up some of that riding, this might be a legal way for me to check it out

It leaves from Beaumont and then heads up the mountain toward Idyllwild on dirt trails.

Still spots available for this ride.

With rain predicted Thursday night through Friday night before the ride, the riding conditions should be epic. No dust!

Cool Ride

My first dual sport "event" donating to a good cause and riding in perfect weather and dirt. Ended up taking the easy ways. Here's some pics:
