We welcome all dualsport/adventure riders to come ride with us. Doesn't matter your age but prefer at least a year or 1,000 miles of experience. We do want you to be able to ride safely and be able to keep up with the group.
We also want to make sure your machine is safe as well. We recommend regular service and that you use appropriate tires for the route (dual sport or knobbies tires) with good tread. Also if you ride a 125cc or smaller bike, you may have trouble keeping up with the group. We are not a fast group but not slow either.
We want our rides to be fun and safe for all involved and we don't intentionally leave anyone behind. We will normally have weekend rides, weather permitting, 90 (+/-100) miles and around 5-8 hours in length during the season and sometime weekday rides.
Ability Levels: 1=gravel roads for cars, 2=gravel roads for trucks, potholes, some ruts, small creek crossings <10 feet wide, 3=deeper ruts, large creek crossings > 10 feet wide, 4=high clearance 4WD roads like Hurricane Creek, 5=Expert
Please keep in mind that we have rules we expect all riders to follow, failure to follow these rules may lead to your removal from our group:
1. Always ride safe and never put those on your bike or riding with you in danger intentionally.
2. Keep it family friendly. Don't come to our events and do anything that would offend a child or my mother. That goes for language and attitude. We are not a gang, we don't wear colors, and we do our best to make everyone feel welcome. If you cannot get along with others, use excessive bad language, or do other things that are not considered family friendly, you will be banned from the group.
3. Just say no! No drugs or alcohol at any of our events. The only exception is if we are having a non riding event and you wish to have a beer, or at the end of the ride if we all meet for supper and you want a beer with your meal. But no excessive drinking. If you come drunk or get drunk at one of our events you will be banned. Illegal drugs will get you banned no matter what they are or why you are using them.
One other thing to consider is your distance from our group. If you live more than 50 miles from the Asheville area, you may find it hard to participate in our group. If this is the case for you I would recommend that you find a group closer to where you live to ride with.
