Like sand and rough desert? This was one of our more infamous shop rides. Spend the night Glamis North hot Springs. Pack light if you camp and be prepared for 100 miles of rough desert. Sometimes the route is moderate, but most times there are 10’s of miles of difficult stretches. Deep sand always near the train track trestle. Absolutely stunning ride after a rare desert rain, but beware of complete road washouts. Start early and stop in Blythe at Steak and Shakes, refuel, and slab it home. This is a WINTER RIDE ONLY. Extreme deadly heat 9 months of the year. Be prepared. The bail outs such as Red Canyon to Chiriaco Summit are very technical. Do not attempt alone. This trip can easily be expanded to another day to include nearby areas such as Salvation Mountain, Slab City, Salton Sea, and Joshua Tree National Park.
