2013 RMAR San Juan 500

Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders is proud to announce, new for 2013, the San Juan 500. The SJ500 is a point-to-point ride ending in Silverton, CO, just in time to join the RMAR Rendezvous. Both events will occur on the same week, allowing riders to participate in both, one after the other.

This is a three day / three night smaller version of the CAM 1000, but is open to the mid-weight adventure bikes in the 650-990cc class, as well as smaller, street-legal dual-sports. We’ll carry our gear and camp in high-country campgrounds. No sag wagon on this ride.


THIS RIDE IS NOW FULL!!

Registration is closed.

July 22-25, 2013 – San Juan 500:

Event: 2013 RMAR San Juan 500
Location: Southwest, Colorado
Dates: July 22-25, 2013
Base camp: Red Mountain RV, Silverton, CO
Fundraising: This event will help support groups preserving our sport in SW Colorado
Event Leader: Matt McCabe, Operations Director and VP of RMAR (Mac on ADV)



Route: 3.5 Days (3 nights) of 500+ Miles of Primarily Off-Pavement Riding, Point to Point, around southwestern Colorado. We're starting and ending in Silverton, Colorado, just in time to start the 2013
RMAR Rendezvous.

Meals & Accommodations: Tent Camping fees are included, but meals are your own responsibility. Most will tent camp (at an established campground with bathrooms and showers), but each evening, a motel or cabin might be an option on your own dime. Every day, a diner or cafe will be available for breakfast and dinner. Each rider will pack their lunch and eat on the trail.

Bikes / Ride Groups: We will have six bike groups of 5 riders each (including the Guide), for a total of 30 riders maximum (rider slots are limited for the first 24 riders to apply and be accepted). Groups will be formed after the first afternoon of riding based upon skill level and bike of choice (requests for riders to be in the same group will be honored). All groups will stop in the same locations each day and for the evening to enjoy each other’s company and hear all the tall-tales around a campfire.

Gear: Each Rider and Bike will be required to carry (at the least) basic survival gear in the event we will have to spend the night in the woods at 11,000 feet elevation (which happened twice in 2012 in the very challenging CAM 1000 over 7 days). The Basic Gear must include a sleeping bag, tarp/tent, two days of food and water and your clothing. (There will not be a support truck hauling gear.)

Limitations: This Ride will be limited to the first 24 accepted applicants (2-up is one "applicant"). Invitations/Applications will be sent out, starting in January. This is a challenging adventure ride and it is possible that a lack of riding skills or the wrong bike could eliminate a candidate.

Fund Raising: A large percentage of the fees will go directly to an organization that either maintains trails in Colorado or fights legally to keep our access and trails open. More detail will be added to this as it is developed. RMAR is a non-profit organization and all officers and workers are 100% volunteer.

Swag: A very nice riding jersey, stickers and Video/Pictures of the ride are included.

I am really excited about this ride, as Big_John and I might do it 2-up if I can get the time off from work.

By July, we will hopefully be riding on his new KTM 990.

Any couples proficient in 2-up adventure riding and have the right bike, come join us!

If you are "IN", remember to promptly email Mac (Email Hyperlink), securing your spot on the invite list.

I wish we could allow anyone and everyone to do this ride, but we have to keep the numbers of riders at a manageable amount......The reasons are:

1. For focused support and truly a team ride
2. To be highly organized on a designated route
3. Keep the dust level down
4. Don't want to get any bigger than 30 riders, to maximize the comraderie and friendship factor

So, the "Interested" list has a few names on it already. Invites will go out in the next few weeks, in order of names on the list, so don't wait. We will fill up quickly. (The CAM 1000 is nearly full already).

If you're interested in getting on the list, send me an email with your real first and last name and ask to be put on the list.

If you have general questions about the ride, feel free to ask and we'll talk about it here in this thread.

This ride is filling up quickly. We're over half way full already.

If you're interested in getting on the "interested" list, send me an email and let me know. We do have a few 2-up riders, so don't be shy. Let me know, ask questions, whatever...

Invitations / applications will only be sent directly to those on my list.

Email sent (a few days ago). Should be a lot of fun. I read that the campgrounds will have showers. I assume we are talking about kind associated with lightning, right?

I've got you on the list, don't worry. I'll have an email out to everyone who has sent me an email by the end of the weekend.

The exact campgrounds are still to be determined, but if you have some control of the weather please feel free to schedule clear skies and awesome weather.

Great . I'm waiting to make my campground reservations for RMAR until I know how many nights the truck and RV will be there.
