2017 EDR BOOK:
It took us a year, but we just got some bitchin’ hard-bound, 100 page coffee table books in stock with words by McGoo and photos by Geoff Kowalchuk. They feature a little history lesson on the origins of the event and a butt load of photos from 2017. Check ’em out in the Biltwell online store here.
CAMPING & LODGING:
You can stay anywhere you want in San Felipe but this is where the action is going to be.
No Reservations Required
All 30 palapas will be available on a first come, first serve basis and are free to riders. These palapas WILL fill up quickly on Friday. You can gang up in one of these rustic tree forts, or pitch your tent on the beach (free!). You don’t need any reservations or anything here, and it’s all been paid for in advance by Biltwell and our generous sponsors. The outdoor bar area and taco stand will be at the massive palapa at Ruben’s. Please no fireworks inside the camp. Be advised, there will be adult activities going on, so don’t bring kids or hand-wringers.
As an alternative, our trusted friend JC can help with a palapa or hotel room if you don’t want to camp on the beach or take your chances on the first come, first serve palapas at Ruben’s. JC has can set you up at Kiki’s, the palapa camp on the south side of Ruben’s, in a hotel room nearby or in town, and he also has some homes and condos available for rent. Here is his contact info:
Here’s the deal. The EDR is a unique event in that it’s designed for people who ride older, home-built, custom motorcycles. Sure, you can ride a stocker or modern machine, but it probably won’t be as fun. No one on the El Diablo Run is going to give you shit for what you ride as long as you have a good attitude. If you show up with an extra car battery to power your bike’s stereo, neon lights, and think you are a tough guy because you bought a motorcycle… well, we can’t guarantee your safety. Seriously, there are a bunch of events for you and this ain’t one of ’em.
This run is a challenge for man and machine no matter how you slice it. The miles don’t sound that far sitting on your computer. Mexico miles are a little different, so be prepared. If you haven’t ridden on an EDR in the past, please thouroughly read all the information on this site and subscribe to the blog or follow Biltwell on Instagram or Facebook, as important details will be published throughout the months leading up to the event. You will be expected to pull your own weight and be self-sufficient. In the words of our friend Walt, “Douchebaggery will not be tolerated”.
