Kick stands up at 7:30am...!
The rally takes place in baker city Oregon (about 5 hour trip). The event is normally 3 days, this year the event is 4 days. It begins on Thursday July 10th and ends on Sunday July 13th. This event has some of the best roads you will ever find, and a great group of people show up from all over. Hotels/motels fill up Pretty quickly, so it's good to make reservations early, even if you cancel at a later date. At this time a departure time has been selected but not confirmed yet. But we do know that most will return Sunday afternoon. The weather last year was super sunny and in the 90's the entire time, perfect. The canyon is deepest canyon in the US, and seems to hold the heat. It was so hot last year the road was quite soft in a few places, making turns a bit slippery.
I am hoping to get some riders from this group to go this year. If you are interested or have questions please contact me. Registration on their website is 50 dollars this year, but well worth it. The $50 includes a rally shirt, 2 meals, rally badge and maps of the courses. It's 80 dollars if you take a campsite at the time of registration. If you want to register or get info on accommodations or campgrounds you can go to the Website at Hellscanyonrally.com lot's of good info and pictures on site.
Ride there will be taking the direct route, so anticipate about 5 to 6 hours to get there.
For some reason I am not able to post link to route here, but if anyone wants a copy of route on map just send a msg through site or email me directly. I will get it back to you pretty quickly. If anyone has comments please let me know.
