AltRider has once again teamed up with Dakar Rally legend Jimmy Lewis to create an unparalleled weekend of adventure riding. Start the weekend setting up camp at the Wine Ridge RV Resort, nestled at the base of the Spring Mountain Range. Enjoy a delicious catered dinner and a gripping presentation from a guest speaker, then head out to the campfire for a few adult beverages. Settle in and get some rest for the exciting day ahead.

After enjoying a delicious breakfast, epic riding terrain awaits as riders head out Saturday morning across the desert just outside Death Valley -- the same terrain Jimmy Lewis used to train for the Dakar Rally. Varied routes ensure there is something for all skill levels, from novice to rugged veteran alike. Stop mid-day to enjoy a filling lunch and swap stories from the first half of ride. After finishing lunch, the rest of the afternoon features more thrilling trails that wind their way back to camp. Wrap the day up with a catered dinner surrounded by new friends, followed by another crackling campfire.

Riders also have the option of attending a one day class with Jimmy Lewis Off-Road Riding School on Sunday, March 15. The course focuses on teaching riders skills to tackle off-road riding on ADV bikes. The class is taught by Jimmy and his expert training staff, and is heavily discounted from the normal price. Learn more about Jimmy’s class here.

New for 2015, participants have the option of renting a motorcycle at a discounted rate from event sponsor MotoQuest. Full details and prices can be found here.
