    GENERAL EVENT INFO

    This is a one day trail ride in the Kawartha and Madawaska highlands.

    The Rally is designed for adventure riders that enjoy twisty, paved / gravel roads with scenic look-outs and fun stops along the way. This route is best suited for, but not limited to, larger adventure bikes like Kawasaki KLR650, Suzuki DR650, KTM Adventure 1190, Yamaha Super Tenere, BMW GS 1200 etc....

    The Trail Ride is designed for riders that enjoy off road trails that incorporate some challenging aspects along the way. This route is best suited for, but not limited to, Enduro-style blue plated Dirt Bikes with a minimum fuel range of 100km. 3 levels of trail ride difficulty are available to choose from. Green (Beginner) , Blue (Intermediate) & Black (Advanced) All 3 Routes will have challenging options within them to choose from.

    In order to be well rested, we recommend that entrants should come up and stay Friday night in the beautiful Marble Lake area.

    Both Rally and Trial Ride participants will navigate their way around using GPS Routes provided by Rally Connex the night before or day of the event. Also, both rides will have a mission / questionnaire sheet to complete in order to achieve points to win prizes. The mission / questionnaire portion of the event is not mandatory but highly suggested. This aspect of the ride is very fun and comedic at times. Either Rally or Trail ride participants can ride as a team or run solo. For more detailed info on both Rally and Trail rides read the descriptions below.

    The Rally & Trail ride begins early Saturday morning (9:00am or as close as we can get. Riders meeting Friday night at 8pm) at The Loon's Call Campground & Cottage Resort, lasts all day, and returns to the same lodge that evening for dinner and then a 1 hr optional night loop. (Dinner not included in event admission) On Sunday morning there will be the awards presentation in the morning, leaving lots of time before heading home. If you require training on basic GPS skills there will be a short seminar on the Friday night at The Loon's Call Campground & Cottage Resort. GPS Rentals from Rally Connex are available while quantities last!
