Ride HighPipe Motorcycle Festival

Scrambles At 7500 Feet

This event is open to all types of motorcycles, with a focus on the rugged good looks and durable spirit of Scrambler styled machines.  Our goal is to present some epic riding opportunities on a wide range of riding surfaces.  Modern off-road capable machines are great, but discovering the backcountry on a traditional style machine allows delivers a throwback experience to pure motorcycling fun.

JUST ANNOUNCED! The Bridgestone Tire Hill Climb tracked by REVER

Saturday June 10th starting at noon.  Ride the ski slope!  Qualified riders will have the chance to traverse the twists and turns of China Peak’s world famous slopes in the first ever HighPipe Hill Climb!  This will be a time trial, with spectators able to view the course from hiking trails, the deck of the mountain top Buck Horn Bar & Grill, or Ski Lift 6!  You won’t want to miss it! (Snow permitting)

TRY IT! Motorcycle Demos

Honda and BMW motorcycles will be offering demo rides throughout the HighPipe weekend!  Honda will have a fleet of their super fun and highly customizable Rebel 300 and 500 models. BMW will be on hand with R9T Scrambler models for you to try.

Other Features Include:

The adventure starts with getting there--north, south, east or west--we are laying out epic rides (or drives if you must) to get you to HighPipe Base Camp at China Peak Mountain Resort. Suggested routes are ready and waiting for you to download on our site.

HighPipe takes place at the end of California Highway 168, which is the start of epic back roads and cool points of interest. We’ve primed local townies and mountain trolls for a list of the absolute best mountain rides and will have them ready to share at the event.

Tame that steed. The Motorcyclist Riding Rodeo is a series of skill courses that will allow you try your bike (better yet--your buddy’s) to find out just what it can do off the tarmac.

Show that thang! From perfect preservations to full on customs of motorcycles new and old, everyone is welcome to join the show. Additionally Cycle World, Street Chopper and Cruiser magazines will be inviting some of today’s top builders to share their work and join in on a ride or two.

Check it out. Bell Helmets and others will be on hand to let you get “all up inside that” with their latest products.

Eat. China Peak will have several food options available throughout the day and evening.

Brew? Yes! When the riding is done, a generous selection of microbrews and other libations will await at the two China Peak lounges.  In fact, China Peak offers three beers brewed for and exclusively available at China Peak.  Try Garage Sales Pale Ale, Peak Pilsner and Sequoia Powday Day.    Sleep. China Peak offers private rooms of various sizes as well as extensive camping areas for both RV and tent camping. Worry not, tenters. Bathrooms and showers are available and conveniently located.

We have a list a mile long of epic and fun activities we will be adding. Stay tuned for more.

“We’re looking forward to a really fun event at the first-ever HighPipe Motorcycle Festival,” commented Corey Eastman, Director of Consumer Engagement for Bonnier Motorcycle Group “Simply because it’s all about the ride. The fun, the camaraderie and the adventure all start with swinging a leg over a bike and getting out there. And the ride is only a part of what HighPipe has to offer. We’re going to have a lot of fun at China Peak over the weekend.”
