Let's check out the Living Desert!
Inland Empire Free Riders, Since the weather in the low desert is so beautiful this time of year let’s make another desert run. By far better than any other zoo and of course the weather is spectacular. I never knew that giraffes came in so many different colors and patterns! This zoo will be a delightful surprise. It's interactive, beautiful, spacious and even the fast food is good. We will have a great time. The African village with animals you can pet, as well as feeding a camel. Parking is easy. The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens in Palm Desert is a unique zoo and botanical garden that specializes in the deserts of the world with a mission of desert conservation through preservation, education and appreciation. Mountain lion, leopard, warthogs, bighorn sheep and Peninsular pronghorn are just a few of the more than 450 incredible animals found in their natural setting that take you from Africa to North America. Feed a giraffe, watch the cheetahs run, admire the zebras, mimic a meerkat, interact with goats, explore nature and so much more. The immersive botanical gardens include geographic replicas of areas as diverse as Baja California’s Vizcaino Desert and the exotic desserts of Madagascar. They have a interactive Discovery Center, visit one of the largest G-scale model train displays, enjoy a Wildlife Wonders animal presentation, hike our nature trails, and have lunch in one of our cafes. Visit www.LivingDesert.org. for more information Lunch: There are 3 food service counters in the park serving American style hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, chicken fingers and other items. Two routes for this ride: We will all meet at Georges Burgers and use Timoteo Canyon to reach the 10 freeway. Once there, we will split: Group 1) Louis will lead the adventurists up through beautiful Idyllwild via 243 and highway 74 to the final destination, which is off highway 74. There will be a short picturesque stop at Lake Hemet. Group 2) Gary will lead those seeking warmer temperatures along the 10 freeway to highway 111 to the final destination. I (Gary) for one wants to spend some time in the Living Desert and will ride back before dark and probably eat somewhere along the way. Park hours are 9am to 5pm adults 19.95 seniors 17.95

What we're about

Public Group

This is a friendly and enthusiastic group of motorcycle riders. All types of bikes and people are welcome. If you don't own a bike, that's fine too. All ages welcome, young and seasoned. So if you love to ride and experience some unusual destinations, you've found a great group to do it with you. We like back roads and mountain curves, but we get on the freeway occasionally to get to where we're going. We usually meet at the same time and place on Saturdays. We also normally eat lunch during the ride, and try to get home around 4:00-6:00 PM. Our organizer schedules the rides, but our riders also suggest the rides.

We're a safe bunch of riders, just cruising safely and having more fun than a barrel of monkeys. No rules, dues or fees. You can ride the way you like to ride. Come join us! Great bunch of folks who like to combine riding, with interesting destinations, and interesting places to eat.
