Riding Considerations

If you travel to remote places, there’s likely no cellular phone service. Do not ride alone! Always ride with someone, think of safety in numbers. Your riding buddy is your life-line if something happens to you.

Since the event is not a riding rally, we do not have a Search and Rescue Team to come to your needs. There may be volunteers in camp that will step up and come and get you, but that’s just a possibility; besides, they may have already been enjoying their favorite alcoholic beverage…that will just compound the situation.

By riding smart and safe, you’re chance of getting hurt will diminish.

Make sure your bike is properly maintained and you carry the necessary tools to perform minor trail side repair. Having essential spare parts and tire tubes will also prevent you from getting stranded. Dual sport DOT tires with knobbies, such as Dunlop 606, TKC 80, Kenda Big Block and Pirelli MT21 are just some of them.

Have enough fuel for the ride you’re going to do. Contact the ride leader on how much fuel will be needed. YMMV

Most importantly, bring enough water and food. Don’t forget the hat!

Wear proper riding gear and body protection. No jeans, hiking boots or open faced helmet.

Since there’s no organized group ride, people can meet in camp or discuss their plan on the forum. Be honest with your your skill level and capability. Anyone who is familiar with the route and destination should step up and lead the ride.

If you have health issue, make sure the ride leader and another person know about it.

Please respect the ride leader and sweep. No one is getting paid, they do it merely to provide assistance to you and others. Always be patient and appreciative!

If you bail out or split from the group, tell the ride leader or at least have someone relay it to the ride leader. It is best to find another person to ride with you on the way back or at least escorted to the nearest highly travelled road.
