This ride is complete, here are the Pictures from the ride

The Baja Burro is a 7 day adventure making a large loop around the Baja Peninsula. The ride starts in Tecate at the USA border. This is an easy, scenic style ride with lots of backways and main dirt road options. This ride is perfect for someone with the explorer attitude and not the race attitude. You will see some amazing places and meet some fantastic people.

Note: If you really like to study the rude open the map file below and turn on only one days ride at a time to understand what is going on.


Q: What bikes are good for this ride?

A: Large adventure bikes can work well and street bikes too. The routes have options suited for both types of bikes.

Q: What gas distance range should my bike have?

A: I would suggest that on some days you carry enough fuel to make 200 miles due to the fact that sometimes the route can have issues and it is good to have a little margin.

Q: What is the total distance of this ride?

A: The ride is 1,600 miles. The average ride day is 220 miles.

Q: Do I need a Passport?

A: Yes, you will be crossing the US and Mexican borders; both countries require passports.

Q: What are motel room arrangements?

A: TBD. See details in full rider packet.

Q: How does the ride navigation work?

This is a self-led GPS ride; all riding is on your own. You are responsible for your own riding. You will be given a GPS map file and instructions on how to use your Garmin GPS unit. People will hook up in small groups of less than 6 riders and tend to ride together. You are not encouraged to ride alone. You are responsible for your own riding and yourself.

(see my ride Navigation Video)

Q: How do I make the GPS stuff so easy?

I develop very high quality ride maps custom for our ride. They come from much of what I and others have ridden. I take the best from all my rides and make new ones.

(See my Custom Ride Maps Video)

Q; What do I do if I don't have a garmin gps?

A: Buy one, you need it. We will show you how to use it. You can get a great one for under $200 bucks.

(See gpsKevin's gps recommendations)

Q: Is the riding really on my own?

A: Yes, but we recommend you ride with a friend, or a new friend.

Q: Do I need insurance?

A: Yes, you must carry proof of medical insurance and liability insurance for yourself/motorcycle.

Q: Would this be a good ride for new riders?

A: Yes. The riding has easy route choices and is mostly scenic.

Are you right for this ride?

When something goes wrong on a ride, would your riding friends say that you are more likely to need help or more likely to give help? You should be in the more likely to offer help camp. This ride is filled with riders that are more likely to give help, so most of the time the riders never need help. Additionally there is all the normal stuff: come prepared to maintain your bike, fix your bike on the trail, repair flat tires, deal with bad weather and rain and make a joke or two.
