Malcolm Smith Adventures 

The gnarliest ride in Baja is
back and tougher than ever.


No Wimps in Baja 2022


January 30th through February 5th, 2022

If you have ever been reluctant to go on a Baja tour because you’re not the “tour” type then KEEP READING. I too, am not the “tour” type. I don’t like feeling like a tourist. I want to get off the beaten path. I want to go places that few people have ever gone. I want to see and experience the authentic stuff, not a watered-down version.

If this sounds like you then clear your schedule and start doing your pushups now.

See past ride photos...


750 miles of epic Northern Baja single track should quench your thirst for the gnarly stuff. A lot of the single track we ride is completely secret and only ridden on our trips. I have searched far and wide for new and gnarly trails to test your abilities, some of them are sure to make you beg for mercy. 

As amazing as the riding will be, the experiences and memories made will be even better. With our support team’s combined experience, we can show you the best Baja has to offer. We will be spending one night of the trip at a remote working cattle ranch deep in one of the most remote mountain ranges of Northern Baja.

This ride is intended for those who are looking to challenge themselves with technical single track and cross country riding. We keep road riding to a bare minimum. A Level Riders and very good B Level Riders only... this ride is not for the weekend warrior!
