What if I am a really new rider?
If you just got your license and little to no experience don’t worry! We have taken literally hundreds of new riders and have helped them build their skills throughout the trip so that by the end they are feeling very comfortable and have learned a whole new skill. The trip is designed with a sweep guide who is in the back of the pack who will help newer riders out so they don’t feel they are holding up the group.
What if I like to ride FAST?
We do too 😉 There’s nothing worse than being on a trip where you feel you can’t ride your own speed. Our lead guides are very fast and skilled riders and their job is to ride just a little faster than you!
What are the age requirements?
16+ for Moto and Snowmobile trips

Is there a discount if I bring my own bike?
We will offer a $500 discount if you have a street legal dual sport bike in good running condition and are able to coordinate in advance of the trip to load it in our trailer for the transporation. Contact us for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
Where can I keep my luggage during my trip?
