Apollo MC Club Space Coast Adventure Ride

A year or two in planning...the Apollo Motorcycle Club will have it's first adventure ride December 13/14 2014. Saturday will be a 180 mile plus adventure ride. Sunday we'll open up the clubs 20,000 acre's of land for dirt only riding (we'll have a one way arrowed trail or explore on your own). It will be a chance to ride both of your bikes in one weekend (unless you want to ride your dualsport both days)! Primitive camping on our property is included with your entry fee. Here's a flyer. My e-mail address is on the flyer if you need more info.
There is a paypal link at the top of the page if you want to pay on line or click on the image to go to the flyer.

Note that if you pre-register lunch and T-shirt is included.
See you there!

Note that there's a typo on the address for the Ride location (it will be fixed shortly). It should read 475 S State Road 415, New Smyrna, FL 3216. There will also be a paypal link installed in a day or so in case you want to pay on line.
See you there!

Does street bike friendly mean GS friendly or RT friendly. I would like to take my BMW RT But its not dirt road worthy.

Apollo Space Coast Adventure Ride

We laid the adventure ride out on a V-Strom 1000 (with street tires) and a Triumph Tiger. There are a few sandy spots but it's pretty packed down. If you have been riding for any length of time...you will have no problem with this ride on any kind of bike. We planned on it being for bigger bikes (BMW, Triumph, etc) but I have rode my DRZ longer distances than this (900 miles in one weekend...lol).

Sunday plan on a dualsport or dirt only bike ride. There's lot's of dirt roads, trails, sand and mud (you can usually detour around the mud) with a wide variety of terrain from hardwood hammocks, grassy fields, dense scrub, slash pine sandy area's (to the south), etc.

There will be dirt (sand) roads (~20-30% dirt).

Very nice offer and something I'll take into consideration (but I'm ultra frugal ) So no dirt bikes on club property on Saturday? Sunday only?

The planned ride for Saturday is a adventure ride (and lunch is 1/2 way on the route). I'm sure we may do some dirt riding after Saturday's ride, but Sunday will be all dirt riding....

Honkey, bring both bikes, you'll love it! Lunch will be a catered belly buster that will rival (but not beat) Miss Lindas.

I'd look for hotels in New Smyrna, not many in Deland. I have never stayed in New Smyrna (we always camp) but I'm sure you can find several.

Historic POI's

Yes, there will be 9+ historic points of interest (POI) and some other stops that will just be a photo op on the route. Lol...there's so many we'll give you a list with info on each one to help you decide which ones to check out. About 1/2 are space or aircraft related. You will not be able to spend a bunch of time at each POI (not enough hours in the day). Idea is to expose you to these areas and what you don't get a chance to see that day...you can check out another day (or next year).
