You're in for the ride of your life down the best trail in the best city in the world!!!
Playa dust will coat your chain. High winds can be a hazard where you may need to walk your bike. If you remember that riding up to the smallest inner cirucumference of the circle is best around the esplande and quickest to what streets you may want to go to from there helps! You'll nevah see more custom cruiser decked out bike lighting in your life! Center Camp has nice bike racks and a simple combo chain lock with your playa name and theme camp name on your bicycle liscense plate is a great idea! You will see more on a bike than you ever have before
along any trail. There's the famous Critical Tits Bicycle around the Man on Friday afternoon to a party catered to just for the women of Buring Man! If you are male then you need to email Captain Erotica if you want to get in and work the party - dj, lap dance, serving food tray, bar, massage, body paint, etc. Be sure to always have your water with you and drink plenty!

A unique and fulfilling ride, though not in any vanilla kind of way... Contrary to other reviews, there is no trashing of desert, only love for it. If you don't care for the desert, and for freaks in the desert, don't take this ride.

More fun doing 105 mph on my Yamaha 426 than little push bikes...there are some good rides in the hills outside of Gerlach on twin tracks though...

bring your cheap bike. leave your clipless pedals at home. no need for suspension here unless your heart is made of mealy-mush. your helmet will be worthless, it would certainly cause you more misery than comfort. as a matter of fact, on a nice day, a rider should be able to ride all of this trail and more naked as a freaking' jaybird with no problems.

the people are good, the music is good and the mountains surrounding this area are beautiful. be prepared for any weather conditions--i've been here when it's been forty degrees and raining and i've been here during a six hour dust storm--when the tempertature was a hundred and ten.

fill your camelback and PISS CLEAR.

this trial bites. I took a lot of drugs like the other reviews suggested (mostly EPO for me), but i was not able to get my hr above zone 3 on this flat trail. i would not recommend this trail to any real mountain biker.

Customer Service

The burning man expierence is one of the best things on earth. Even if you have a bike you will never see it all. It can only get technical if your hammered, but that is what makes it fun. This ride is for almost every one except those that are homophobic. ENJOY all week long!!!

Customer Service

Any where on the playa.

The Black Rock City loop trail is an oftentimes challenging, multitrack and sand, desert ride with spectacular views of the surrounding mountsides. I particularly enjoy the varied and unpredictable technical challenges, some of which reportedly include: (1) trying to actually ride the bike while under the influence of massive doses of psychoactive substances; (2) frequent and unpredictable rebar and rope hazards; (3) technical riding in the form of swerving in and out of the paths of erratic movements of art cars being operated by people also under the influence of massive doses of psychoactives; (4) potential heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

As other mountain bikers have reported in their previous reviews, the Black Rock City multi-track loop can be a challenging and highly technical ride. Exercise caution and have fun!

BRC perimeter ride, through center camp, stopping for an iced soy latte, other optional stops for massages, glitter, beer, cigarettes . . .

Flat, dusty.

Stay away during burning man. burning man is just a bunch of drugged out losers trashing a beautiful desert. If you do come during burning man, bring a weapon to defend yourself.

Customer Service

loop either way

Gordon is right. Stay away from burning man. I always believed that week would be a good time for the Air Force to make a few practice bombing runs across the desert. Clean up the world's gene pool.

Similar Products Used: Forget the playa. Ride Highrock Canyon instead.
