    The 2015 Boogie is nearly upon us. Once again the BMA would like to invite the dual sport and adventure riding community to participate. :clap

    The Boogie offers a number of different rides ranging from expert level trails to scenic adventure tours for the biggest adventure style dual sport bikes. Somewhere in the middle of these extremes is an aggressive dual sport ride that includes lots of rocky hydro line trails.

    The fun starts Sept. 12 at Calabogie Highlands golf course and continues on Sunday Sept. 13 starting at Calabogie Peaks ski hill.

    Anyone with a blue plated bike is invited to enjoy these carefully prepared rides that offer less aggressive alternatives to the single track trail rides. The D-S rides start at the same place as the trail rides and we will meet up with the trail riders for lunch and after the ride to swap stories. There is also a banquet on Saturday night with guest speaker and great food.

    DUAL SPORT (BLUE PLATE REQUIRED) - SCENIC/ADVENTURE TOURS
    These rides take you through picturesque farms in the highlands where the roads are seldom straight. Scenic tours are ideal for riders who want to stop and take a few pictures along the way. Since these rides are also appealing to some of the faster riders on bigger bikes, we have added extension options to the scenic tours to keep the fun from ending too soon.

    DUAL SPORT (BLUE PLATE REQUIRED) - TECH/AGGRESSIVE RIDE
    For more aggressive Dual Sport riders who prefer to concentrate on the ground in front of them rather than the scenery around them, we recommend the Tech/Aggressive Ride. These rides share much of the twisty, fun dirt roads with the scenic/adventure tours but have some power line and ATV trails thrown in to make it just a bit more challenging.

    TRAIL RIDE (GREEN OR BLUE PLATE REQUIRED) - (INCLUDES ORANGE, PINK AND WHITE TRAILS)
    All are welcome to ride the gnarly single track trails that Calabogie is famous for; however, we do recommend smaller, lighter trail bikes for these arrowed routes.

    See the BMA site for details:

    Would this be suitable for a stock vstrom 1000? no skid plte, stock tires, no crash bars, etc. Also I saw the BMA site for details but I don't see how to register and it says not to just show up?

    I have important news for all potential 2015 Calabogie Boogie riders. This ride is now over subscribed. I'm very sorry if you missed your chance to register. BMA has had to limit the number of trail riders to a manageable number and this year we hit that number.

    If you want to participate in our Scenic / Adventure Tour as described above there is still an opportunity to register although it is too late to get commemorative a t-shirt. The Scenic / Adventure Tour ride is on public roads and rail trails so there is no concern of trail erosion from overuse. So, for this ride only, we will allow more riders. To sign up for the Adventure Tour please contact our Dual Sport Coordinator at dualsport@bma1.ca
