THE ROUTES

OFF ROAD 1 and 2
The off road route is a main loop designed for the avid off road adventure bike rider that doesn't mind getting dirty. During this ride you can expect paved roads, gravel roads, road allowances, jeep trail, two track trails, loose rock, rocky rivers with flowing water, small hill climbs and descents, muddy passes and some water holes. Don't let this scare you. We take great pride in providing an off road experience that will be enjoyable for all riders who are looking for a fun and safe off-road experience. Some sections of this ride require a permit to be in those areas. This permit is included in your registration fee and must be with you at all times during the ride.

Now with that said, if you're looking to get your hardcore off-road game on you will be given options throughout that route to break off into more aggressive terrain to overcome. Some of the more aggressive terrain will be technical single track trails, drop offs & step ups, large rocky terrain, water crossings, multiple downed trees on the trail and bushwhacking. These options are designed for the very aggressive off-road rider in mind. With these options we consider the off-road routes as 2 separate rides.

 

GRAVEL & PAVEMENT
This route is exactly how it sounds. A full day's worth of the best twisty and scenic gravel and paved roads Eastern Ontario has to offer. Some gravel road sections will be unmaintained roads with very little difficulty to overcome. Any 50/50 Adventure bike tire will take you through these sections with ease. With that said, if the weather turns bad during the ride some areas can become slippery. Ride with caution! The outlook spots and photogenic areas are breathtaking. Some sections of this ride require a permit to be in those areas. This permit is included in your registration fee and must be with you at all times during the ride.

During this ride you will be given the option to extend your ride with an optional longer distance route if you wish to take it. The additional route will be the same type of riding as the main route but just more of it.
