Belles Ride to BRO5

Belles On Bikes is hosting a scenic ride to Babes Ride Out from Temecula.  We’ll be meeting up at a gas station so we can all top off and hit the road to be in camp right as they open the gates. We’re not riding on any major freeways so we will be taking in the landscape through wine country in Temecula, the wide open roads in Anza and panoramic views of the high desert as we descend in to Palm Springs.

Hell Or High Water!

I don’t even know where to begin…… this camp out was one of the toughest experiences I think a lot of us had ever experienced on our bikes.  The ride started out at LA Harley of Anaheim  with one of the most beneficial moto safety meetings I have ever attended.  It literally changed how we ride in a pack. It was given by Dennis the  Road Captain of the LA Harley Hog Chapter.  We all learned something. When Asli (@randomtinyfeet ) & I were sweeping, we kept looking at each other in amazement because the pack was tight, perfect staggering and moved as one group.  Not all crazy mish-mash like we were used to. A big huge HELL-YA! to the Belles on Bikes ladies and a thank you to Amy (aka_rside) for RC the pack the whole weekend flawlessly.

So we were off and very worried about the rain.   We knew that we would see rain, but we thought “California Rain”  not Witch Mountain rain, boy were we wrong. We met up with the San Diego ladies just down the street from the entrance to Palomar mountain and you could not see it.  I repeat you could not see it. The mountain was under a blanket of fog.  With a quick safety talk we split the girls in to 2 groups.  Group A led by Amy for the larger bikes and more experienced riders and group B led by Beulah for the smaller bikes or less experienced riders.  We had 30 women in total and this worked perfectly.

Going up the mountain was crazy, you couldn’t see more than 4 feet in front of you and it was wet and cold.  We took our time and enjoyed the challenge.  Bella (@b5llla) who had never ridden on a freeway let alone these conditions CRUSHED IT!!!!  I mean, I was so impressed with her courage and ability to handle her bike it made me recall the first time I rode on the freeway at Babes Ride Out 1.

We arrived at Mother’s Kitchen and ran inside to warm up and eat.  We stocked up on wine and treats at the store.  FYI they do not sell hard liquor in this town….. which we could have used to warm up. Then came the moment of truth, the rain was coming and if you wanted to turn back and not camp you had to do it right then.  But not one woman left. We all stayed. By time we get to our camp it was raining.  We quickly started a fire and set up camp.  Then the rain really started.  Jamie (@kill_meow) and I ran back to the store to buy every poncho they have in the place. The rest of the gals made some out of giant trash bags.  Jimmy the taco guy from CJ and Sons shows up and cooks a fantastic meal in the pouring rain.  He said that we were the toughest group of women he had ever met.

Then we party, we drank Sapporo and wine, ate tacos, shot gunned beers in the bathroom and laughed.  We laughed so hard, we couldn’t believe we were there in the rain camping.  As the night came to a close the SoCal Sirens had an announcement.  Amy was presented with her prospect patch.  She had earned it and is an amazing woman.  She was the 1st and only girl to show up to the 1st Belles ride back in October and has been present ever since.  She has become more than a riding buddy, she is a good friend and soon to be Club sister.

Come morning everyone was soaked, we spend the better half of the morning attempting to dry out pants and gloves over a fire.  We pack up and start the ride home.  As we all start to break away for home I become over whelmed with this feeling of community and sisterhood.  Who knew that 2 rubber wheels and an air cooled motor could unite so many women together.  I look forward to the next adventure and if you haven’t already…. come join us.  Rubber side down lades xoxo.
