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.







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
Registration: TBA (in Jan or Feb)….. on www.rmariders.org
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.

Yes, they were all ridden by some. Obviously the big bikes didn't go off Black Bear and down the Steps, but plenty of big bikes did Hurricane and Cinnamon, etc....

Yabbut that wasn't pretty.

I'm pretty old, fat, and feeble.....

Maybe if I'd had the skidplate on it would have been better.....

My apologies to you beastly riders of 600+ lb bikes....tackling "Holy Moses" type of descents and climbs.

You guys encompass the spirit and grit of a true adventure rider!!!!!

You can start making your reservations at Red Mountain RV.....

For that matter, all of the hotels and motels in Silverton are open for reservations.
