If you’re an ADV or dirt bike rider, you probably know about Baja, Mexico, and its incredible winter escape possibilities. Well, Baja just got even more enticing with The Cold Start, an Off-Road Riding Clinic and Culinary Experience organized by Kyra Sacdalan. I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of anything better than spending the first part of February riding bikes and eating gourmet food in Baja. And I can certainly vouch for the benefits of off-road training, no matter how experienced you are.

The Level 1 and 2 clinics run February 4-8, and include two days off-road, with skills training and trail rides in the Valle de Guadalupe and Ojos Negros. The skills training will be covered by Donni Reddington at Skool of Moto.
Lodging is provided by Lost in Baja.
If this warm getaway with delicious food and the chance to improve your riding skills sounds like a plan, email Kyra at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Registration is open now and ends January 31, 2022.
