EVENT INFO

BABES IN THE DIRT 5 | ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW | A MUST READ

Hi Ladies!!!!! We are so excited to see everyone this weekend for Babes in the Dirt 5! We put together a comprehensive list of everything you need to know. If its not on here, its not a big deal, we promise! Please read this email 4-5 times to ensure you have all the info and if you still have questions, follow the instructions at the bottom of this email for additional assistance.

  • Babes in the Dirt 5 is 100% sold out which means if you show up without a ticket , we will have to turn you away. If you show up without a parking pass, your vehicle won’t be allowed through gates. There is no overflow or “day” parking available so you’d need to park elsewhere in the park and come over (only if you have a general admissions ticket to enter). Only those with a ticket will be allowed inside gates so if someone is dropping you off / dropping off gear, they will have to leave it or you at the front entrance :) A map of Hungry Valley can be found HERE. which shows the entire park and routes to and from the sites in the area. If you are transferring your ticket or parking to another rider, it must be put in their name Tuesday 5 pm pacific as we go to print with the guest list and leave to build out the site for your arrival. Any transfers made after the cut off will not be acknowledged at the gates as we go off the guest list in our hands only and not printed tickets to reduce "fake" tix (I know right!! But attendees have bamboozled us before.. le sigh*)

  • Gates open at 10AM sharp on Friday and no one will be allowed through the gate before 10AM unless you are volunteering, staff, or sposnors. Please do not block any roadways while waiting in line. We will be checking IDs at gate to ensure your ID matches the ticket and that you are over 21. If you forgot your ID, you will sadly be turned away. Sorry! It’s the law / rules via our permit.

  • Upon signing waiver, getting wristband, and parking tag, you will be flagged into parking as you entered and put into the next available spot which is chalk marked. If you want to camp next to your friends, make sure to arrive together as there is no space saving. Keep all items, gear, etc in your parking space. Anything spilling out into the fire road will be removed.

  • Be prepared to show your wristband every time you enter the event space. Simply hold up your wrist and you will be waved through gates.

  • Please check in before 9pm each night. There will be overnight security /late night / early am check in team that will be located in the kiosk. They are military and first responders so if anything arises, please do not hesitate to ask them for help. They will be wearing security shirts.

    BABES IN THE DIRT 5 RULES AND REGS

    We know these are no-brainers but we have to remind all guests as violation of any of these rules & regulations result in the attendee being kicked out immediately and banned from all future events. We take your safety and our guests safety VERY seriously.

    • HELMETS ON anytime a bike is in motion. Nothing will get an attendee kicked out faster than riding without a helmet. We know, we know.. but its not 1965 anymore <3

    • If the ambulance isn’t on site, the track is CLOSED! No riding the track unless you see that big red and blue ambulance on site. Track hours are posted on the schedule of events but as a rule, NO RIDING THE TRACK AFTER 6PM

    • No drinking and riding. Our 24/ hr security will escort anyone who appears to be riding intoxicated off the property.

    • NO GLASS CONTANERS - please do not bring any glass bottles and stick to cans only ..or crap box wine.. that is legit too. 

    • No ripping through camp on your bike or mini bike. Keep speeds low at all times when in camp. 

    • Do not sneak in un-ticketed guests. We will find out…we always do.

    • No touching or going through any sponsors setup, sitting on the demo bikes, etc after activation are shut down. You will be asked to leave if we see anyone messing with these setups after hours as its a huge no no <3

    • No burn outs or hot doggin’.

    • Trash must be properly disposed of. Please help us keep the site clean & leave no trace. 

    • Wristbands must be worn at all times. Do not take off until you leave for good as our staff will be checking for bands all weekend. Make sure to hold up your wrist and show your band each time you enter the site.

    • Parking decals must stay visible in rear view

    • No Eazy Ups can be set up for safety reasons (far too windy!)

    • No burning of any kind at the camping spaces 

    • No charcoal grills are permitted

    • No one is allowed to hang banners or signage at their camp site. It's not fair to our sponsors who've put a lot of work into this event. 

    • No one is permitted to sell or handout anything on site (no stickers, flyers, business cards etc). We spend countless hours cleaning these items up as people trash them 99% of the time and again, it's not fair to our sponsors. 

    Alright! Now that the worst part is over, Let's get to the "what the hell do I bring" portion. By no means is this list the all mighty everything under the sun kind of list but rather necessities we think are important. As always, if you have special needs, pack what YOU need to stay comfortable. 

    BABES IN THE DIRT CAMPING BASICS

babes in the dirt

We are so excited to welcome back the crew at WLF Enduro to Babes in the Dirt 5! For their 3rd year in a row they will be providing trail support to anyone that needs it as well as bringing the heat for the bonfires after hours near the WLF den. With their motto of “Further Together”, this crew knows the true meaning of no rider left behind. (never forget the Smith brothers riding 2-up on a single track trail to rescue the bike of a rider who was injured) If you are out on the trails and see a member of the WLF Pack in their signature jerseys make sure to throw up a high five or if you need some support flag them down. So grateful to have them as part of the Babes in the Dirt Family! Read on to get to know more about them!

Unifying riders around the globe with the common passion of two wheels and a throttle.
Providing riders a credible resource for quality products tested by actual use and effectiveness in the field.

WHO WE ARE:

We are of humble beginnings from the hills and deserts of Southern California. Some of us have been riding and racing dirt bikes from birth, others of us picked up the sport later in life. What started as a handful of rag-tag teachers, salesmen and construction workers has turned into a team of riders connected around the globe. From DualSport/ADV bikes to technical Off-Road, Enduro riding, we love it all. We are brought together by moto-camaraderie and the passion of exploring on two wheels.
