Intro to Adventure!

The ultimate educational weekend for those new to Adventure riding


* AMA member pricing.

The learning curve for proficient and independent adventure riding can be quite steep.  So many questions; What bike to buy?  How to best ride it? What gear to wear? What to do when things go wrong?

We plan to answer all these questions and more during this weekend event.  Beginner rider training, Beginner and Intermediate Adventure rides, gear demos, medical seminars and mechanical demonstrations are what you can expect during this weekend-long Adventure clinic and ride.
