THE RIDE: Approximately 500 km (300 miles) total over both days. It is a fun and scenic ride through the mountains of Virginia AND WEST VIRGINIA on paved, gravel and unimproved roads. There will be a separate "big bike" Adventure style route. This means you have 2 choices on the type of terrain and difficulty to ride. The Dual Sport route uses a roll chart for navigation and the ADV route uses GPS (tracks) for navigation. If you intend to ride the ADV route, please make sure that your GPS will handle tracks, as most automotive units will not, and please familiarize yourself with the operation of your GPS.
