Climb elevations on pristine riding trails, take in the beauty of the lush forests, and enjoy all the bumps along the way. Join adventure motorcycle outfitter AltRider on June 27th -29th, 2014 for one of their signature adventure rides, Conserve the Ride.
Conserve the Ride will take place in the spectacular Pennsylvania State Forest, a vast expanse of diverse terrain and stellar riding trails. Designed to highlight the thrill of off-road riding, the trek will utilize GPS-led routes full of lush scenery, gorgeous flora, epic vistas, and plenty of dirt and mud if you want to get a little dirty. The tracks are curated for riders of all skill levels exclusively by members of the nonprofit organization Seven Mountains Conservation Corp (SMCC). Proceeds from the three-day event will benefit SMCC’s efforts to preserve the forest for trail activities. Register for the event at www.altrider.com/ConservetheRide.
This year’s Conserve the Ride will also offer an exclusive optional class with Dakar Rally star and skilled instructor Jimmy Lewis. Lewis is one of the only Americans to podium finish at Dakar and a four-time International Six Day Enduro Gold Medalist. “The expertise Jimmy brings to our events is bar-none,” Jeremy Lebreton, AltRider President says. “He lives and teaches his class in Nevada, so this is an excellent opportunity for guys on the east coast to experience everything he has to offer.” Lewis is offering his off-road training class at a deep discount from his normal school rates (www.jimmylewisoffroad.com) in Nevada.
The $239 registration for Conserve the Ride includes two nights of camping, five catered meals including a special pig roast, adult beverages, an endurocross race on a custom built track with professional racers and compelling presentations from travel bloggers and Jimmy Lewis. In addition, there will be plenty of prize giveaways from sponsors Icon, Akrapovic, Rox Risers, Motorcycle-USA, BMW of Manhattan and Kissell Motorsports.
