We’ve trained thousands of riders, conducted tours all over the world and host several unique events each year for the Adventure Riding community. We have 4 facilities in California and Colorado AND we are the only company in North America that is both sponsored and sanctioned by BMW as an official training center! As you meander our site you’ll see the wide variety of Training, Tours and events that we provide. Hopefully something that we offer appeals to you and we’ll have the chance to serve you!

RawHyde’s Journey to the End of the World

Adventure begins...

...where the pavement ends

Adventure Riding: that is what exists beyond the end of the tarmac. Over 95% of the world's roads are unpaved, so if you don't like to (or can't) ride in the dirt, you'll find yourself confined to a mere 5% of the planet.

RawHyde Adventures has something fun and exhilarating for any Adventure Rider. Whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned veteran; our training programs, rallies and special events truly provide the definition of adventure.

I have attended several training classes and events at RawHyde. It reminds me of camp when I was younger. Show up Friday, put away my car keys and my wallet, and enjoy the weekend. Everything is there already arranged for you... Read more.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know last weeks Base Camp Alpha experience was just incredible. First of all the modification due to weather was brilliant, the ground we covered was beautiful and challenging but not overly intimidating. Read more.

Anyone that asks about my bike or talks about getting an adventure bike, I say two things... Get a BMW and go to Rawhyde, both of which are worth every penny! I then go on and on about the feeling of satisfaction being able to ride obstacles I would have never thought possible. Read more.

It was a great event. So many talented riders from all over the US came to RawHyde Adventures for the 2015 GS Trophy Challenge West Coast Qualifiers. I was lucky enough to work with this amazing team.
