This year we have2 primary loops suitable for all levels of riders
B Loop: Lots of two track and some single track, you will scratch your bike!Intended for DRZ/KLX's; nothing bigger than a DR/XR650 unless your name is Sheldon.
This route is for seasoned Dual Sporters only. Single track and hard 4X4 roads. You guys know who you are, if you're not sure what kind of a rider you are do the C loop; you will still get some harder options, I guarantee you will enjoy your ride.
Many of us were humbled by the mud track heading up Cornwall last year. Good Times!
We intend to have a few "A" splits for the nutters, and perhaps Ted or ??? will guide a few of you through something gnarlly, but my own lack of skillz precludes charting an actual A Loop.
C Loop: All gravel roads all the time; Ok for the big bikes and riders new to Dual Sport. There will be a few options for those wishing to adventure / challenge themselves.
Don't worry if your bike is too big or too small, or if you are inexperienced, old&frail, etc. This is a fun loop and you will have a great day!
You will ride roads you have never been on before, you will get lost and turned around then be amazed at where you come out. Don't worry though the entire route is ribboned so you won't be lost for long...
You will see lots of wildlife
eer, Wild Horses, Bears, Eagles, and possibly fish. You will be riding lots of range land so you can practice weaving in and out with the Slow Cattle.
About 297 kms total with 90 kms of pavement, we have "Bail Outs" so if you've had enough you can take the pavement back to camp.
EZ and scenic riding (much of the route is over 4000') forDR200s, Beemers, 950s, Elefants, VStromsand KLRs

Lunch stops (your cost) will be charted for Cache Creek / Ashcroft.

List of Dead Headz:
We need to determine how many riders to expect on the Dead Zone this year. We had 59 participants last year, and 15 of them missed the cut-off forshirts.
It takes a lot of time and up-front money to get these rides organised, and have things ready for us when we arrive. If you could email me (email@example.com)
with your name ,T-shirt size and bike, I will include you on the expected Dead Headz. We plan to havea T Shirt for this ride, but need at least 25 participants before spending the money. Also we would like to know if you plan on camping at the start (same site as 2005, we are at 4.5km on the Laluweesen FSR).
We will take your money at the event, but cannot guarantee a t-shirt (or burger) for you under such circumstances. Therefore, we ask that you PLEASE PREPAY, this can easily be accomplished through the DualSport Store.
