To our friends in the ADV community… Just when we thought that life was beginning to return to some normalcy, the US Forest Service and the COVID Delta variant have thrown a monkey wrench in our plans for this years edition of ADV Days! Based on a combination of COVID cancelations representing nearly 40% or our attendees and vendors PLUS a statewide closure of all National Forests along with the probability of a lengthy continuation of these closures we are postponing ADV Days until early next year! Since nearly ALL of the available riding in our area is within the National Forest the closure has a big impact on the fun factor of the event.

We know that many folks have been looking forward to attending this years event and this is certainly inconvenient for all but the uncertainty of fire restrictions plus an increasing level of concern regarding covid have created an untenable situation. Thanks in advance for your understanding!

RawHyde is excited to announce Adventure Days at our Castaic, CA facility near the Mojave Desert. So what’s Adventure Days?

Many companies from the Adventure Market will be present showing off their latest products (See vendor list below) and there will be a strong focus on education and knowledge, we'll be hosting GPS seminars, suspension and bike set up classes, tire changing & bead breaking clinics, off road riding clinics, packing clinics, etc. Our friends from Klim will host a detailed class on how today's high tech riding suits repel water, protect you… and keep you comfortable at the same time. There will be clinics or classes on every imaginable topic. The list of classes and clinics is growing continuously.

There will also be daily rides - some will be guided others will be self -guided via GPS tracks which will be provided for you.

We'll have evening entertainment including live music and a sneak preview of the highly anticipated Expedition 65 movie which is an epic travelogue about an adventure ride that went from jungles of Colombia to the top of the Andes at nearly 17,000 feet elevation and on Ushuaia, Argentina. 10,000 miles of adventure over a two month period in late 2016.

But wait… there's more! On top of all the classes, clinics and fun; all your food, beverages, camping, guided rides etc. are all included too… as well as a *souvenir shirt.

So – the bottom line is this: If you're serious (or curious) about Adventure Riding; this is an excellent opportunity to both experience and learn about everything related to our world. Three days of fun, learning, and excitement at our Castaic, CA facility near the Mojave Desert.

Riding Clinics

The Basics of Dirt riding (for noobies):

This two hour session is half lecture and half practical. The “on bike” portion of the class will focus on Standing while riding, plus basic turning and braking. (Taught by RawHyde Trainers)

Skidding on dirt (It’s not like on the pavement):

Street riders are taught that “skidding is bad” on pavement, plus todays ABS systems have removed the potential of skidding from the average riders thought process. BUT skidding is very much a part of off road riding. This basic skidding class will allow the rider to “get a feel for the skid” in a safe and controlled manner. It’s also a lot of fun to learn to skid a big bike ! 1 hour – taught by RawHyde Trainers.

Basics of Sand:
