Description

Our Expert Motorcycle Guides will take you on a fun ride leading to Big Bear Village! This is a place that lies in a very active and busy valley; with an exciting and awe-inspiring 7,000 feet elevation!

The city of Big Bear is a favorite destination for Angelinos who like the ice and snow of the winter, and the sunshine, lakes, and fishing of the summer!

The Tour heads out on the 330 North Freeway off of the 210 East East, which is a wonderfully steep, wide, and winding road. Along the ride, we will also discover The North Shore of Bear Bear Lake; a peaceful shoelace of a road, bordering the lake and winding through woods and cabins. This is an area that offers a splendid view of the lake and the impressive mass of snow covering the high peaks of the Sierra mountain range in the winter!

On the way down from Big Bear, the roads are even more astounding. We will be overlooking the immense Los Angeles basin, and will have picturesque views that you can only dream about! Get ready to see these stunning views for yourself, as we ride along at a smooth pace, wind at our back, and an adventurous spirit filling our sails!

Come join us on this Motorcycle Tour up to Big Bear, enjoy the roads, the views, and the ride!

History of Big Bear:
Big Bear Lake was inhabited by the indigenous Serrano Indians for over 2,000 years before it was explored by Benjamin Wilson and his party. Once populated by only the natives and the grizzly bears, from which the area received its name, the population of the Big Bear Valley grew rapidly during the Southern California Gold Rush from 1861 to 1912. Grizzly bears were not found in the region after 1908. Today, there are black bears in the region since their introduction in 1933, and they are sometimes sighted in residential areas.

A trip to Big Bear Lake from San Bernardino took two days on horse-drawn coaches. Kirk Phillips was a local who took a trip to New York City and saw the world’s first bus line. This inspired him to create the world’s second bus line from San Bernardino to Big Bear Valley using White trucks with several rows of seats. This made it possible for the villages to grow and for Big Bear Lake to become the first mountain recreation area in Southern California.
