- Babes in the Dirt
A now-annual pilgrimage to the California desert, Babes in the Dirt continues to grow. With 700 participants, this year’s event came hot on the heels of Babes Ride Out. In a campout surrounded by hundreds of women laying down tracks in the dirt, it becomes more and more claer that women on a motorcycle are not, and should not be an anomoly.

Riders linger under a rare treat for city dwellers: a sky full of stars. Babes in the Dirt is as unique as that celestial canopy, a homegrown international riding mecca for women in a time when the motorcycle industry is finally waking up to the fact that half the world’s population wants to do more than just ride pillion. Ride on.
