Guided Motorcycle Tour of Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument

The paved portion of this tour, explores Hwy 74 (aka Palms to Pines Hwy) , a thrilling climb up the Santa Rosa mountain with lots of tight curves, a legendary road among California motorcycle riders. Of course a dual sport ride wouldn’t be an “adventure”, without sections where the pavement ends. This tour winds up Thomas Road, a fun and fairly easy 14.5 mile dirt trail, that passes through Oaks and Pinyon’s, grassy meadows, to Cedar and Fir trees, at the higher elevations of over 6800 feet. The trail offers stunning views of the valleys below. Before returning down to the desert, we will stop for refreshments at Paradise Valley Cafe. Please note that you will need to arrive at our office 8.30 AM to get fitted for safety gear, and to participate in a mandatory pre-ride meeting conducted by your guide! The tour will leave at 9AM!

Experience of a Lifetime- Joshua Tree National Park- Nothing like it around!

Experience of a Lifetime- Joshua Tree National Park- Nothing like it around!

In the southern part of California, there are two places that attract travelers from all over the world: the desert oasis of Joshua Tree and the vibrant town of Palm Springs. Joshua Tree and Palm Springs instantly bring warm feels to my heart. While these two locations are far from being similar to one another; experiencing them together is the perfect blend of tranquillity and lively spirit. Joshua Tree is like no other place I have ever visited. From the awestruck sunsets to the calming presence of the Joshua Trees, themselves. Joshua Tree is a place where your soul and nature become one. This place allows your dreams to come alive and lets all your passions come forth from your heart.
