How difficult is the course?
Sunday – 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.

Saturday – Camp and Explore is intended for larger bikes such as the Yamaha Tenere, BMW GS series and the Suzuki V-Strom, as well as those who are on smaller DS bikes who want a relaxing weekend of riding in the mountains of central Pennsylvania. The suggested routes are all on public forestry roads intended to be a scenic nature ride. We will point out interesting locations such as Woodward caves, Elk Creek Cafe, etc. You are welcome to ride these routes on Sunday as well if you feel you’re not up for the main course.

Sunday Course Makeup?
The main course has less than 15 miles of paved roads out 100+ miles of forestry roads, rocky two track, and technical single track.

How much fuel range is required?
Sunday fuel stop will be at approximately 65 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 adventure bike tires are fine for the Camp and Explore Saturday routes.

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?
Rescue Trucks and Sweep riders are only on Sundays Dual Sport Event.

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.

Reminder: Saturday is an explore day with no field support – take a buddy and anything you might need.
