Baja, Mexico 2024 Ride

Our 5 day adventure south of the border to Baja, Mexico started at the border crossing town of Tecate. We navigated the Compadre Trail down to Valle De Trinidad for a gas and lunch stop, before riding out to the famous Mike’s Sky Rancho.

Day 2 had us heading out the back way from Mike’s on some much more challenging trails, with uphills, rocks, and ruts everywhere. After a quick stop at El Coyote Ranch, we continued over to the Pacific Coast to our final stop of the day in San Quintin.

Day 3 took us further south to El Rosario, where we headed out to the remote coastal trails down to Punta San Carlos. The windswept coastline was a great place to take a break for half an hour before continuing eastwards, then back to El Rosario for a great dinner at Mama Espinoza’s.

On Day 4 we started to head back north past San Quenti. We zig zagged through farmland out to the coastline for a 25 mile rip up the sand beach where we literally saw zero other people. Our stop for the night was at Cuatro Gas with our host Richard. Overnight we heard a big storm roll in that affected our last day’s plans to get back to the border.

Day 5 started of early as we attempted to ride through the treacherous muddy trails. After about 10 miles, our GPS track brought us to an impassable trail, by which time we had all had enough of the extreme mud, we headed out to the MEX 1 highway. After a lunch stop in Ensenada, we were soon at the border in Tecate to wrap up another great Baja trip.

Big thanks to Gary Goodwin at KOVE USA for the Kove 450 Rally bikes, and Ryan Dudek at Honda for the 450L loaner bike for this trip.
