This looks fun.

Days of riding through the desert dunes, wakes of sand thrashed back by the churning tires. The merciless sun beating down as the riders race to the end… perhaps not to win, but just to finish. Most of us will never race the Dakar, but this February 24-26, you will have the opportunity to join a limited number of adventure riders to meet, train and ride with one of only two Americans to ever finish on the podium of the Dakar: Jimmy Lewis.

The entry fee of $225 includes 5 catered meals (dinner Fri, all meals Sat, breakfast Sun) including adult beverages, two days of epic routes (Sat and Sun), camping fees, a techniques clinic led by Jimmy Lewis, entertainment, and an unforgettable weekend. All skill levels welcome -- we will break into riding groups based on ability level.

We'll be planning epic routes through desert rock and sand with the help of our local dealer, BMW of Las Vegas, and will have professional photographers there to capture images and video of the weekend. Delicious and hearty southwestern food will be catered for the event, and at night we'll enjoy cold beverages around a campfire before turning in to our tents. We will be camping outside Death Valley and will be near truly great riding of all types.

I contacted them inquiring about the bike rental and didn't hear a thing back.

Seems like its byob at $225, not sure how much extra rental would cost.

 

Does the $225 include bikes? Looks like byob. If so, I'm 99% in.
