Thumb 2013 Conserve the Ride - Pennsylvania

It's another year for the Conserve the Ride event. AltRider is the organizer/sponsor for the event. Camping, riding, eating, drinking, laughs, and an all around great time. I went to the inaugural ride last year and had a blast. AltRider really takes care of everyone. They organize the rides, the food, the beers, all of it. You just show up and have a great time. I made a couple good friends from this event last year.

This is from the AltRider Web site:

WHERE // Woodward , PA, United States
WHEN // Fri, Jun 7


Join us on a stellar weekend getaway in Central Pennsylvania on June 7-9 for Conserve the Ride 2012. AltRider is working in conjunction with the Seven Mountains Conservation Corp (SMCC), dedicated to the promotion and preservation of off-road motorcycle riding in the nearby trails of Pennsylvania. Strap up your bike with the camping gear that's collecting dust in your garage, extra fuel, and a yearning for adventure to join AltRider on this epic dual sport ride.

This exciting 3-day event kicks off with an intense EnduroCross competition on SMCC's custom built track with live pro riders on Friday evening followed by a catered dinner. AltRider will provide nightly entertainment with a keg of beer by the campfire.

Saturday - Eat a hearty breakfast and break into groups based on skill level for a staggered GPS-led ride. Then head out on an adventure ride through diverse terrain, including stunning forests surrounded by lush foliage, narrow bridges, sand crossings, never-ending gravel and rock. 160 miles have been mapped out (including GPS routes) to create incredible experiences for every skill level. Informative seminars from pro racers will teach off-road riding techniques so the rider can feel every bit confident when tackling the varied Pennsylvanian terrain. Halfway through the Saturday ride, we will stop for a scenic BBQ lunch served at Hyner Run State Park. After finishing up the ride, a pig roast will be awaiting at the campgrounds with an ice cold beer to quench your thirst.

Sunday - Wake up to a delicious breakfast and join us for an optional cave tour at the largest cave in Pennsylvania – right on site at the Woodward Caves Campground! . Break down your campsite, say your goodbyes to your new friends and we’ll provide you with several optional routes. A local member of SMCC will set up a mapping station to help you with any route questions for your ride home.

Registration includes:
• A weekend of GPS routed rides created by the members of SMCC for all skill levels
• Live EnduroCross show with pro racers
• 2 nights of camping at Woodward Caves –find directions here
• 5 meals including delicious BBQ, a special pig roast and adult beverages
• Off-road seminars from seasoned coaches
• Slideshow presentations from professional riders
• An unforgettable experience riding for an awesome cause


If you can make it to this event, you should. Very much worth it.
Think beyond yourself.
