Rides/Contests

Guided & Unguided Adventure Bike Rides

  • We have put together some great Adirondack (NY) and Green Mountain (VT) adventure bike routes, heading out for a 100-200 mile loops on a mix of dirt and paved rides.
  • Routes will be offered for all skill levels.
  • Routes sheets will be available to all registered attendees.
  • The routes are best suited for plated mid-sized (650cc+) or larger bikes.
  • For those of you less comfortable on gnarly dirt roads or trails, we’ve got alternative routes you can take, bringing you to the same destination.  These easier routes should be fine for street biased tires, though as always, it’s your call on any road presented to you.
  • Special Rides with an included Lunch and Great Prizes are available, but have limited quantities (and will sell out).  These rides can be ridden on your own or with one of our guides and will include stops at some little known fascinating spots.  The lunch offered and the sponsor providing the prizes will be announced in Feb.

 

Ride with the Pros!

  • All students of the Adventure Rider Training Program will be eligible to ride with their famous instructors Mike Lafferty and Jimmy Lewis!
  • You’ll hit the road with these riding legends, going on a scenic two hour loop, stopping for photos and tips and then heading back to the DirtDAZE headquarters.

 

Riding Games

  • Someone gave us a bulldozer, 800 acres, and lots of time…
  • We’re creating a fantastic slow-speed playground for you to ride one at a time. The course will be suited for those on mid to large displacement adventure bikes, and prizes will be given out to those who ride it best and with the most style.
    • The course will include log crossings, sand, berms, tabletops, steps, alligators, and water.
    • Entry will be limited to registered attendees and you will be vying for trophies.
    • Speed isn’t needed; skill is.  Those riding in the most control, with the least dabs (putting your foot down), will be crowned king or queen of the course.  (In fact, there will be a penalty for riding it in too little time.  You read that right.  We want you to show your skill and style, not speed.)
