Leave Borax Bill Park @ 11:00 am

This is a RIDE and not a race.


On February 17, 2008 Taylor LaKamp lost his life in a tragic off-road accident out in California City. Taylor was only 15 years old.

On March 26th, we are having the “Taylor LaKamp 3rd Annual Memorial Ride” for all fallen riders. It will start at Borax Bills Park in Cal City, and the group will ride out to the Husky Monument as a group. The ride starts at 11:00. We ask that you show up by 10:30 ready to ride. We will not be able to wait for riders to get ready. The Borax Bills parking lot will fill up fast. We are hoping to get a large turnout for this ride like last time.

We will be having some chase trucks in case anyone breaks down on the ride. Safety is #1 on this ride. It is not a race, it's a memorial ride. We do suggest that you pack some water to drink, and also a little snack of some kind.

The ride will be about 70 miles total. You will need a bike, quad, or dune buggy that can do that many miles. For those of you that are not sure how many miles you can get out of a tank of gas, you might want to bring extra for this ride just to be safe. You can put it in one of the chase trucks. Be sure to mark it with you name.

As some of you already know the number for the Cal City police dispatch is 760-373-8606. This is quicker than using the 911 emergency number which is routed to the CHP and then to the EMTs. You should have this number in you phone whenever riding out at Cal City. We will have silicone wristbands with the emergency number on them available for a small donation. The California City Police Department has created the Desert Incident Response Team, to patrol these ultra-terrain areas and to deploy resources for threshold incidents. Any donations will be made to D.I.R.T (Desert Incident Response Team).

Do you need a Cal City permit to do this ride? NO, you will not. The Cal City PD will let you ride on this ride without one.

We do ask that you do wear ALL proper riding gear for the ride. We will also need to follow any riding laws. This means no riding double on dirt bikes or quads that are not set-up to ride double. I want to remind you again this is a 70 mile ride round trip, so it is not a ride intended for real little kids. If you would like to bring real young kids, please bring them in a car or truck. The pace will be less than 40 MPH all the way to Husky. The ride will be an easy ride for all, no real technical parts to it. You will hit a little sand, but not much. Most of the ride is just on dirt roads. Those that want to make it a little more technical, you can do it on the way back. For those that don't want too, you can go back the same way you got to Husky.

Can you just drive you a truck out to the Husky Monument? You sure can. You will just need to go a little slow on the dirt roads leading in and out. We ask if you're going to drive in, you get to Husky before 10:30. The reason for this is, we don't want anyone on dirt bikes, quads or buggies getting ran over by cars or trucks. Also, it will help with some of the dust on the roads. Again safety is #1 on this ride. For additional info contact Taylorsride@gmail.com

Head Count

So a few days until this event is underway and I thought I would a head count of who is going to make it out and represent DBA on this ride.
Here is what I know so far:

CDA +2
Bota55
KTMRack & Yama_Dawgg (Depending on if he has a fish to ride or something else :devil:)
Geekster (If Doc releases him or he digs himself out of the driveway)

Who else is going to be out there from here? We should all park and ride together and show our DBA support. I will be heading out around 6:30am from my location and should arrive in Cal City around 9:00am.
