La Rumorosa Path….The Haunted Highway….

This ride is for intermediate riders (sports bikes with and itch will definitely be an advance course).

 

This is the mountain path that connects Tecate and Mexicali, in Baja California Norte.

According to the locals “la carretera esta enbrujada”, several urban stories about ghost apparitions haunts the path….the most predominant the myth of Nurse Eva’s spirit who died traveling through the mountains help a sick person. The howling noise made when the wind comes down the mountain is part of the myth.

This howling noise is also called “las colas del diablo” (the devil's tail), whispering gusts of wind responsible for the cars graveyard at the bottom of the cliffs.

The path itself is only about 12 miles long in each direction, the elevation is about 4000 feet and the road is one way up and one way up, I have heard some people compare the tightness of curves to Palomar.

We will probably do Smuggler’s Run to the Tecate border and work ourselves down the path and back up then head back to Tecate and over the border.

Traveling to Mexico requires travel documents such as a United States Passport or similar documentation. One day insurance is available on line.

      Sorry Jason! We'll have a ride you'll enjoy soon. We look forward to riding with you.

    Sorry, guys! This date coincides with Mr. Bones' daughter's birthday. Looks like we're going to re-schedule this one AGAIN! It also is on the same day as the PLMC Anniversary event, which I am obligated to attend. Please comment on good dates for you. Mr. Bones will be re-scheduling this with an eye on your comments and the calendar for the motorcycling community. Again, I apologize and we will try to pick the next date carefully.

    Rambo - due to recent events with Neysa's passing and coordinating her Memorial Events, I will have to drop out of this. Next time for sure!! I'm looking forward to riding with you all soon.

    March 6, 2013

    • Rambo

      No worries, Cleo. I understand completely.

      March 6, 2013

    • Rambo

      She's in Ireland right now, but I'll send her an invite when she gets back. The meeting tomorrow night is technically a planning meeting, Russ, but you are welcome to join us for BBQ in Poway.

  • Bones

    Friends and TR family, I apologize for the short nice, I came down with the flu and was trying to see if I can shake it, but I don’t believe I will be able to run tomorrow….I am also concern for our safety as the weather may have done a number to the Rumorosa.

    On interim I will move this to mid-May, and we will move it sooner if possible.

    March 9, 2013

  • Rambo

    How's the weather looking for this?

    March 6, 2013

    • Rambo

      Awesome! I need this. I worked last weekend and I have to work Friday night and Saturday. Don't worry! I'll bang my work out and be there!

      March 6, 2013

  • jd

    i will see if i can find a few bikers from mex, that will not be going to this event, recommend at leat one biker from mexico that can be there for support if needed.

    March 2, 2013

  • jd

    sorry to hear that, this falls on the same day as one of our fellow TJ bjke clubs has a food for the poor run on the same day, we have already commited to this a month ago. maybe next time

    March 2, 2013

  • Rambo

    Spoke with JD last night. He's got a food run with Biker Libres in TJ on this day. He can do the 17th, but it sounds like our host has a rough schedule this month, so we will leave this for the 10th.

    March 1, 2013

  • Bones

    if weather cooperates, looks like a solid date.... I will be out of town or busy with work or family most of March...this maybe the only Sunday I maybe able to run....

  • Jason

    Didn't know where to post this suggestion so I chose here. Yuma Prison Run, April?

    February 19, 2013

    • Rambo

      What's the date? We're headed to Sedona[masked]

      February 19, 2013

  • Bones

    Ok guys, looks like weather will not cooperate this upcoming weekend…..Snow and ice on a downhill twisty sounds like a lot of fun but for the safety of the crew we may need to reschedule. I am pushing it to March with a tentative date….

    Sounds like fun, but I will have to pass. Have fun y'all

    February 12, 2013

  • Rambo

    We are seriously considering pushing this out again because of weather. Locals have cautioned it is still pretty cold and road conditions may not be very good.

    February 11, 2013

  • Ryan D

    I'm up for whatever. Or rather whatever the Boss's Boss decides :p

    February 1, 2013

  • Rambo

    Wohhhhhhh! Hold on there! I just realized the 17th is Tanya's birthday. I love you sweetie! :^} Let me see if I can get her on-board for this ride as her "birthday celebration." I am such a caring husband...stand by while I get permission from the boss.

    February 1, 2013

  • Rambo

    I vote move it to Sunday. We need more Zen.
