NEW YEAR’S IN BAJA SCOUTING ADVENTURE
Imagine riding in Baja during the darkest and coldest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, only to be enjoying sunny landscapes, beaches, warm temps and open roads. We all know the holidays are for taking a moment to reconnect. Why not reconnect with the warm, open smiles of Baja locals, lingering sunsets, fresh fish tacos, and top it off with New Year’s Eve in La Paz?
This is a Scouting Trip, so please, only riders who do not complain over spilled milk, and can ride long days in the saddle and can ride dirt surfaces need apply.
Ready for some fun during the holiday season in Baja?
Road Conditions: This motorcycle tour features all paved roads with mild elevation changes. Open desert roads are the order of the day. There may be dirt surface sojourns and there will be long days of paved riding to over 300 miles per day.
