From sand dunes to stretches of cracked sandbeds, dirt trails winding around valleys and everything in between -- the desert offers unique riding opportunities for ADV enthusiasts. Join us for an epic weekend adventure for the 5th annual Taste of Dakar in Gold Point, Nevada on March 17-19th. This gripping adventure includes GPS-led routes, 5 square meals and snacks for the weekend, adult beverages, nightly entertainment, and the opportunity to ride and train with professional riders.

    Saturday // After a hearty breakfast, break into groups based on skill level for the awesome ride into the desert. Don't forget your cameras and Go-Pro's for your awesome adventure through dirt roads, dry cracked sandbeds, dunes and desert brush against the stunning mountainscape. Halfway through the Saturday ride, we'll stop to enjoy a filling lunch and swap stories from the first part of the day. Ride for the rest of the afternoon with your groups and return from your epic day to a special dinner back at the campsite, albeit with new friends and fond memories. If you have time.
