Back to the desert for the post holiday winter classic. After LA-B-V, the Hi Desert 250 is the longest running Dual Sport event. It was 22 years ago when several old enduro clubs started promoting Dual Sport rides and formed the D37 Dual Sport Committee. The Hi Desert 250 was on that first schedule.
This year we have five all day loops (see page 2 for details). *Three of the loops can be ridden on Green Sticker bikes by trailering to the college at the south end of Ridgecrest to start/finish your ride. You choose which two or three loops you want to ride. Riders will be spread out on the five loops for less dust (as if there is no chance of snow or rain in January).

Five All Day Loops
Husky Loop* The Husky Loop (140 Mi) is the 2nd most challenging technical desert single track and not recommended for >500cc bikes. It is 30 Mi (1Hr) to Joberg for gas then 75 Mi loop that will take at least 4-5 hrs for a good rider, then lunch and then 35 mi 1.5 Hr back.
Rand - El Paso Loop* The Rand - El Paso 100 Mi loop uses some great single track trails in the El Paso Mts then around/through the Rand Mts. on old Enduro trails.
Jawbone Loop* The Jawbone loop is 120 Mi of typical desert. Panamint Vly Loop
The Panamint Vly Cabin loop is 180 miles but very fast in many places. The actual road to each cabin is very rocky.
Rademaker Loop The Rademaker-Sangler Loop (? Mi) is the most technical challenging desert single track with miles of hard core enduro trails. This may be GPS only, still working on it.
* Green Sticker friendly from south end of town.
Short Sunday Loops
The easiest/shortest 53 Mi loop is the Husky Loop by just riding to Joberg and back.
An easy 70 Mi loop is Jawbone Loop but stop for food at Robbers Roost on Hwy 14 then back.
Another option is the Rand-El Paso loop but take all the easy way short cuts and save over anhour or take short cuts and just ride to Joberg and back and skip the Rands.
