From the Promoter:

Welcome to the 5th Annual Bike for Bender Pioneertown Fundraiser Ride.

This ride starts at the Pioneertown Sound Stage and takes you 25, 35, or 50 miles across the desert floors and valleys, up steep and rocky jeep roads, and straight up into the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains up to Big Bear. In Yucca Valley, you pass through a variety of ecozones starting with long stretches of Joshua Tree laden paths and then you work your way up scenic jeep and mining roads to the snow-capped mountains at 7,000ft.

The climb up is a grueling 3-4 hour grinder that is not for the faint of heart! In some areas the sand is deep, the rocks are big, and there are some “hike-a-bike” sections. You can expect snow, ice and mud at high elevations. The good news is that after the climb, you’ll hit the turn-around point at 12.5, 17.5, or 25 miles and you’ll enjoy miles of fast and pedal-free descending all the way back.

What could be more fun than hanging out at an old cowboy and western film town, camping, BBQing and doing an epic ride with your friends?

One thought on “Pioneertown Giddyup 50 – Pioneertown, California

  1. I did this ride last year (the 35 mile version) and was one of the few gravel bikes. It was a blast (if you like climbing). I ran 35 mm wide tires with tubes no problem, but did have to walk a sandy section. Would recommend 40 mm or more. Lots of people rode mountain bikes.
