2017 HighPipe Motorcycle Festival

Ride some epic roads as part of the festivities planned for the HighPipe Motorcycle Festival that will be held on June 9-11, 2017.

Here are some of our current plans:

  • 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. Check back at the HighPipe site to see some suggested routes.
  • 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. Cruiser, Cycle World, and Street Chopper magazines will be inviting some of today’s top builders to share their work and join in on a ride or two.
  • Try it! Honda has signed on to join the fun and will bring some very cool machines to ogle and demo. This will include the all-new and highly customizable Honda Rebel.
  • 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.

Cruiser will be inviting some of the top builders in the industry to the event to show off their machines at HighPipe.

“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.”

HighPipe is being made possible through the support of GEICO Motorcycle, American Honda, Bell Helmets and more. HighPipe promises to be a unique opportunity for riders. The central attraction of HighPipe remains the ride itself. Hundreds of miles of scenic rides await, where you can explore points of interest laid out around the mountain on detailed routes, accessible to both modern-day and vintage machines. HighPipe is designed to let you create your own adventure from the seat of your motorcycle.

All types of bikes and riders are welcome. Join us at the China Peak Mountain Resort where you can camp out, stay in the lodge or simply ride up for the day. For more information on HighPipe Motorcycle Festival presented by GEICO Motorcycle, visit
