About the event

Ride in The Rocks

Ride in the Rocks prides itself on being an event for the whole family. We are excited to be on track for our 2021 event! Fundraising efforts are in full swing and everyone is excited that things seem to be getting back to normal! 

Mountain bikers will be challenged by our Expert and Intermediate courses. It contains all of the desert elements including rocks, sand washes, cactus, and Joshua trees. The rider will also enjoy technical portions, climbs and good stretches of down-hill. With temperatures ranging in the 70s & 80s you will enjoy an amazing day of pristine air and clear blue skies.

This year we have decided to eliminate the 15k trail run. If there is more interest in the future, we will gladly bring it back.

For those who want to give singletrack a try, but don’t want to commit to the longer routes, we have a Beginner course that let’s the rider experience a little bit of everything. We also have a 5 mile family-friendly course that participants may walk, ride, or run.

Ride in the Rocks takes place in the rural desert town of Lucerne Valley, California. We are located just 30 miles north of Big Bear Lake, and 102 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Course Details

RITR offers a variety of courses to fit every skill level. With rocks, sand and fast single track we have it all.


We are a family friendly event. Mountain bikers and runners will not be disappointed. 


From cheering participants on to stuffing goodie bags, and setting up aid stations,  this event would not be successful without the help of our dedicated volunteers


Plain and simple, RITR would not be possible without the support of our generous sponsors

See You Soon!

"I had a great day riding with so many friends and enjoyed the challenging course. The organizers had lunch available and that made it fun to hangout and talk about the ride with everyone."

"Ride in the Rocks not only raises money for a great cause, it also helps bring local mountain bikers out for a one-of-a-kind ride."

Stephen Baum

"I've ridden Ride in the Rocks five or six times now and look forward to it every year. From Hurl Hill to the single-track to the rocky wash, the trails in Lucerne Valley do not disappoint. It's obvious that the organizers and crew try hard to make sure you have a solid experience.”
