Babes in Borrego from Babes Ride Out
October 5th and 6th, this year of 2013, was the first Babes in Borrego camp out from Babes Ride Out. Group rides were led from San Diego and Long Beach into the Anza-Borrego Desert in California. Sand, dust, ladies, motorcycles, fires and camping goodness. Hell raisers, I tell ya!
“The sign is a suggestion, right?” Over 50 babes and bikes showed up from all over the country.

I love that girl.
Lovely ladies such as Cindy DuLong (of the hit blog FashionSerialKiller) were present being fashionable (and functional!) bad asses as usual. Here are a few of her photos from the FashionSerialKiller instagram.
Even some mini motoladies were there. (Photo by Ginger McCabe, IG@newchurchmoto)

Much fun was had, many motorcycle sisterships were born… many boobs were seen.
Jenny Smith (IG @babeparade) made a short video which gives you a little bit more personality of all these rad women. I know many of them personally and they are ferocious, caring, strong and amazing women.
To view more awesome photos from the Babes in Borrego ladies only campout, I’d suggest visiting the tag #babesinborrego on instagram.
