Women’s On-Road Ride to the San Gabriel Mountains, CA

Escape the ordinary with Wilderness Collective

On this women-only full-day ride, we'll escape greater Los Angeles and ride through Angeles Crest to the Mt. Wilson observatory perched 5,700 ft. above the sprawl of LA. We’ll take in the sights along the way and stop at a classic biker restaurant hidden in the San Gabriel mountains.

No motorcycle experience? No problem

This trip is specifically designed for people with no motorcycle experience. Our revolutionary Can-Am Ryker Rally Edition is the perfect fit for this incredible adventure. You’ll feel like you’ve been riding for years the first time you get in the saddle. It’s ideally suited for those who didn’t grow up riding and for couples who are at different experience levels.

Our Outfitter

The Wilderness Collective guides people through trip-of-a-lifetime adventure experiences, produces films and a printed magazine, all with the intention of inspiring character development through exploration.

Their motto is Wilderness makes you better.

All Wilderness trips have been device-free since the collective started. This means they’ll lock your phone in a safe. And don’t bring a camera either. This is intentional to ensure that you get to experience a unique distraction-free adventure, something that is always a highlight for their guests. They will take all the photos so you can just enjoy the experience.
