7 Mtns Dual Sport

Online Registration opens July 1st.

PaTRA is a non profit organization run entirely by volunteers who have given time away from their families to run this event and maintain the trail system through out the year.

The proceeds from the event are used to maintain and ensure the dual sport trail system in Bald Eagle SF remains open for future generations of riders.

In conjunction with DCNR and our volunteers, the trail system is actively maintained throughout the year.

Last year our small group of volunteers logged over 185
man hours on trail work!

That’s (23- 8hr work days)!

Please ride respectfully…

Thanks,
The PaTRA Crew!

What kind of gear will I need to wear?
Helmets required. We recommend, goggles, boots, gloves and any other protective equipment be worn throughout the weekend.

Bike requirements
All bikes must be licensed and insured.

How difficult is the course?
Roll charts / arrowed course with options is designed for dual sport bikes such as the DRZ 400 and the Honda XR series along with any standard enduro type bike.
Riding ability is intended for the average dual sport rider. The alternate course in more difficult and is intended for the more experienced riders.

Course Makeup?
The main course has less than 15 miles of paved roads out 85 miles of forestry roads, rocky two track, and technical single track.

How much fuel range is required?
Fuel stop will be approximately 60 miles at a gas station

Tires?
Knobby tires are preferable for the alternate course and nice for the main course but not necessary. Dual purpose and tires are fine for main course.

Flat Tires (the biggest mechanical problem of the weekend)
If you run 15 pounds or greater the chance of a flat tire is minimal.
If you run under 15 pounds you can count of a flat tire! Please come prepared with extra tubes.

What if I am not sure of my riding ability?
The way the course is designed all participants can start out on an easier main route and move to a harder route at any of the optional sections

What happens if I break down or get hurt during the weekend?
Sweep riders will be riding along the course to assist riders in case of a mechanical breakdown or injury.

We have rescue trucks that are placed strategically on the course. The guys have minimal maintenance capabilities such as assisting with a tire change but can transport you and/or your bike back to the Sportmens club if needed.

The phone numbers of the club members in the rescue trucks will be included at the end of your roll charts however keep in mind that cell service is limited in some of the areas you will be riding in.
