Introducing ADVENTURE beginner rider work-shop for large displacement adventure bikes (Like; Triumph Tiger 800XC, BMW R1200 GS, KTM 990 Adventure, Ducati Multistrada S1200, V-Strom DL650) . After your training you put your skills to work.
Experience the beautiful back roads of the western Pennsylvania on a guided three-day Adventure Ride. The tour begins at Poe Valley National Camp grounds, with a skills clinic preparing the riders for their challenging adventure ahead.
Over the course of three days, riders will explore parts of various National Forests in the area. The adventure will be a true dual sport ride continually moving from twisty paved roads to a combination of gravel, dirt and bedrock roads.
A support vehicle will transport luggage and provide any assistance necessary. Instructors will cover on and off road skills and pertinent topics in the clinic as well as at various points along the journey.
The Three Day Adventure Tour is for beginners. Riders need to be comfortable riding at the speed limit on public roads. A large portion of the Tour is off road. The primary off road surface will be packed gravel (forest service roads). There will be opportunities along the way for more skilled riders to challenge their abilities on a bit more aggressive terrain. Riders should be prepared to ride 150-250 miles a day on mixed surfaces.
