Wilderness is excited to be piloting a brand new trip designed for non-motorcycle riders. In partnership, we are offering the revolutionary Can-Am Ryker Rally edition which allows riders with no motorcycle experience an incredible powersports adventure. We’ll be running the gravel ridge roads high above the legendary Highway 1 along Big Sur and dropping down to tear up the most scenic stretches of the legendary Pacific Coast Highway. This 4 day, 3 night adventure is a perfect chance to get out of the city and push your limits trying something new.

It’s the perfect trip for those who didn’t grow up riding and don’t have their moto license or any experience. It’s also a great trip for couples where you’ve got a difference in powersports experience. More than that, it’s an ideal way to see the secrets that the back roads of Big Sur has to offer. We’ll be seeing the coastline, riding past Hearst Castle,  Redwoods, epic views, waterfalls, endless twisties and camping high above the noise of the PCH but being sure to take in the best parts of the most famous drive in America.
