April 28th – Ride for Rwanda

What began as a 50th birthday ride in 2006, has evolved into one of the most anticipated and talked-about rides in Southern California. What makes this ride different? First of all, our event is a “ride”, not a race. Riders participate for a lot of reasons: some for the challenge of riding further on a mountain bike than ever before, some because they love the cause, some for the fun of sharing the day with tons of their MTB buddies. Second, our event is a fundraiser. We’ve raised over $1,000,000 in our first 11 events. And we’re just getting started.   More Info >

April 28th – 3rd Annual Park to Park Bike Ride

The 3rd Annual Park to Park Bike Ride is a partnership effort of the City of Twentynine Palms, Joshua Tree National Park and Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base to provide a scenic cycling event from Knott’s Sky Park in Twentynine Palms to Key’s View in Joshua Tree National Park and back. A family ride has been added to this year’s event with a shorter route for children and families.  More Info >
