WLF Enduro | Mission II

Last weekend we all gathered in Johnson Valley at for the WLF Enduro Mission II event! WLF is a community based platform that unites people thru two-wheels and a throttle. Operation 2 Wheel Freedom was a concept created to simply say THANK YOU to the service men & women for their service. Its a special project that the WLF Pack do to support the riding community and go FURTHER TOGETHER.

It was an amazing weekend of meeting new people, group rides, Husqvarna Motorcycle demos, campfire hangs and an epic raffle. This pack knows how to show people a good time while helping a great cause! A percentage of the proceeds from their latest gear release will be donated to the below organizations to benefit Veterans.

Meet the WLF Pack

It's true, you meet the nicest people on a motorcycle! We first met WLF Enduro on a fun day of riding out in Johnson Valley. After a weekend of camping and riding some really amazing trails, they felt like family. We are so excited to welcome them back to Babes in the Dirt 4! Meet the crew and read on to hear about what they have in store for the event. 

*  We’re here to help!! Our moto is always been, "FUTHER TOGETHER”. We’re here to witness the radness of what all you ladies have built together, and a full focus on the community of women rippers! 

*  Trail Patrol; running around all over Gorman with white helmets and noticeable Stumble Bee jersey, just waive! We’re here to assist in any way with the bike issues, direct routes back to camp or you just need a high five after you did the epic hill climb you’ve been trying to concur! Also want to rip some of the fun trails that are available, look forward to getting after it with ya’ll! 

* Bringing the HEAT! Literally, we’ll be filling out trail support trailer coined “THE DEN” with a ton of free firewood. Please come up and help yourself to keep warm in the Gorman eve’s. 

* WLF / Cub Camp; We’ll be staging a camp for Dads, Husbands, Kiddos, Boyfriends or just bro friends (we dont judge) to get everyone together while you gals do your thing in the event space! You know what they say “it takes a village” especially without the help of our wonderful ladies! This is just a full homie and grom zone to hang out, nothing formal but, it is good to know that we’ll all be ok while you gals are having a raging good time!!! 

ALSO, check out WLF Enduros' event coming up in April  Operation 2 Wheel Freedom .
