If you like rocks, and sand washes, cactus and Joshua trees and best of all clear blue skies and pristine air, then this is the ride for you see Challenge Map. In the High Desert we have October temperatures in the 70s to 80s that help to extend our riding weather deep into the fall season.

This year we are changing our 10 mile course from a “Tame 10” to a “Tough 10.” We will take our 10 milers up the first half of the Challenge Course to include more climbs and technical terrain, so gear up!

We still have the Five Mile Run/Walk Course for those who like to feel the ground beneath their feet. See Five Mile Run/Walk Map. Ride in the Rocks takes place in the scenic little town of Lucerne Valley, California. We are located just 30 miles north of Big Bear Lake, and 102 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Where: Directions from LA: Take the I-10 S toward San Bernardino to the I-15 North toward Las Vegas, through the Cajon Pass, take exit #147 to Bear Valley Road east toward Apple Valley / Lucerne Valley. Stay on Bear Valley Road 12.5 miles, merge onto Highway 18 east, go 11 miles to four-way stop. Turn left on Barstow Road/Hwy 247, go 1.8 miles turn right on Rabbit Springs Road, the Lucerne Valley Middle/High School is .6 miles, turn right just past the east corner of the school parking lot onto Ladera Road and follow the signs to the registration area and starting line.

When: Sign-in takes place 7-8:30 am on Saturday November 5, 2016. All participants start at the same time with the 40 milers in front.

Who: This bike ride / trail run will accommodate all levels of expertise. Casual touring cyclists and families will enjoy the Family 5 mile course, with the majority of this ride on broad well-maintained and lightly traveled dirt access roads. The 25 mile course is for those looking for a challenge with intense desert trails of sand, rock, and hill climbs. The 40 milers will double the upper technical section of the 25 mile course.
