Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness Appalachians - Sep 14-16, 2018
OK, I'm trying to see if there is interest in this event. It is 7 hours drive away in WV, but it sounds awesome. It does divide into single cylinder or bigger adventure bike teams, and into GPS vs Map following teams. It is just two weeks before the Big South Fork event. It costs $349 per bike, but they set you up with satellite beacons, maps for two days riding, t-shirts, and a big award dinner. Rooms are available for $109 per night. Let me know if you are interested and what kind of bike and challenge you would be up for. Maybe we will set up a team or two. http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/humm-appalachians-2018 What is it? Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness (HUMM) is an off-road, competitive, motorcycle navigation challenge for teams of 2-4 bikes. For 2018, we plan events in the USA Granite Mountain in Arizona, the Canadian Monashees in British Columbia and the Appalachians in West Virginia. Events are 2 full-days of riding, and the most fun you can have on two wheels ;-) "The best day's riding ever!" "Ranks among the top ten 'best fun' biking experiences!" "The best 48 hours of my life! (apologies to wife!) Choose one of FOUR challenge classes for your team to participate! MAP SINGLES - Single-cylinder bikes navigating with a compass (no GPS); MAP MULTIS: Multi-cylinder bikes navigating with a compass (no GPS); GPS SINGLES: Single-cylinder bikes navigating with a GPS or satnav; GPS MULTIS: Multi-cylinder bikes navigating with a GPS or satnav. Does your team have a combination of singles and multis? Choose the ONE challenge class your team will ride in and experience the unique pros and cons of each bike type. Rocks galore at HUMM Appalachians! Bikes need not be dedicated off-road specials but need to have a vague predilection for the dirt. So GS Adventure yes, Electric Glide in Blue, no. Knobbly tires a plus but by no means essential. HUMM Appalachians - Riders coming over hill. Each team gets the same map and a checkpoint booklet on Day 1. Each checkpoint gets its own page with a clear description of its location and a map reference. Crucially, the booklet is not a roadbook. No two teams ever take the same routes, there is no course as such. So you're never following a string of riders down the same dusty course! Rules of the HUMM: You must ride in a team of 2, to a maximum of 4 people, (minimum 2 bikes) so be sure to put together your team before registering as we need the names of all team members. If you cannot find someone to team with, go ahead and register for the event, note that you do not have a team partner, and we will match you with someone with a similar bike and riding skill level as best we can. Several past winners were matched up by us! Prizes will be awarded in 4 classes (subject to sufficient entrants): Map Class Singles Multis GPS Class Singles Multis -Roy
