    September 5th is my birthday… if I come to the rally do I get a cake?

    Here’s a great ride from Two Wheels of Suches in the North Georgia mountains, all the way to the rally at Barber Motorsports. At 390 miles, this is the very back way. The good news is you can ride all or parts of it.

    One of the things we’ll be doing in the event is riding a large loop of 2-track trail that Barber Motorsports uses to show off the Porsche Cayenne.

     

    There are also ample opportunities to detour off this two-track for some special tests….

     

    We’ll lay out the course so that you have to manage your speed, like an enduro. We’ll keep it simple so that you can use your watch, phone, or GPS.

     

    Not sure how long this will go, but we do want to tucker you out a bit.

     

    Anyone here interested in helping me plan this and do scorekeeping during the ride?

    Great to hear that you’re coming, Guns and posse!

    Please capture a track of your ride… it would be great to see where you wind up going.

    This year, the Barber Motorsports Park offers a number of excellent opportunities for women-only riding activities.

     

    We will have two great areas for practice riding, and we are working on a local day ride.

     

    How much interest is there in women-only events?

    It is an event that was held at the Biltmore Rally last year, and will occur again at Barber Motorsports Park.

    More photos of last years event are here.

    [QUOTE=Adam Arcane »]See you in the South, Visian![/QUOTE]

    We’ll have to find you a bike to ride around the Adventure Track… maybe on a day ride.

    At the rally, you can ride the Adventure Track.

    There will be mud.

    There’s a special women-only ride planned.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, but the RA is behind in putting the Adventure RAid button onto the registration form.

    Please PM me with your e-mail address and I’ll make sure you’re on the list.

    The event will start on June 16 as people meet up in one of three different locations. The idea is to meet up, make friends and ride together toward the rally. The event is open to riders on all brands of bikes, and all skill levels.

    Camping together is an option. The ride has at least 1 “out there” camping location along the way.

    This year, it will be a do-it-yourself affair… we’ll identify the meetup spot and recommend a few overnight options, but the food, beer and camping will be yours to arrange.

    The Adventure RAid is a great event for couples. And yes, there are rattlesnakes in eastern woods, too!

    There will be many opportunities to take Adventure Detours, to get you off the slab and into the woods.

    You’re in for some really great riding.
