2021 F*CK Breast Cancer 4×4 Run To “The Bridge”

October 30 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm

Free

The 2021 Breast Cancer Awareness / F*ck Breast Cancer 4×4 Run To The Bridge sponsored exclusively by BuyTwoWayRadios.com will be an easy/beginners run on mostly dirt roads that any 4×4 vehicle can do. We will encounter some sandy areas, a few steep hills, and some rough road sections, but nothing that most 4×4’s cannot negotiate.

As with all public NotaRubicon events, THIS EVENT IS FREE and OPEN TO EVERYONE with a proper vehicle and a working GMRS radio, please see the requirements below.

We will be selling $1 raffle-tickets for the prize-giveaway (see THIS PAGE for prize-list) and all proceeds will be donated to the City Of Hope Cancer Research Center.  To show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month please WEAR PINK or outfit your Jeep in pink! If you wish to make an additional donation please bring cash or make your check out to “City of Hope”.

We will start the day at the TA Truckstop in Indio. From there we will travel east on Interstate 10 to the Summit Rd exit at Chiriaco Summit, where after a short drive down the road we will air-down our tires to smooth out the ride and help us get through the deep sandy areas.

After airing down our tires (not required) we will proceed to the Red Canyon Jeep trail, driving across the high ridges that overlook the canyons. We will then drop down into the wash aka “The Bradshaw Trail” as we make our way to our lunch stop & prize-giveaway under the 500 foot long, 50 foot tall abandoned railroad trestle – This railroad trestle (bridge) was supposed to be gone by now, but it looks like all of the demolition work was stopped at the beginning of the COVID breakout, so the bridge is still there!

After lunch at the bridge we will backtrack a bit and follow the old railroad line back to Interstate 10 near the Red Cloud Mine Rd on-ramp to finish the day, hopefully before dark.
