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 DETAILS // REGISTRATION WILL BE OPEN IN APRIL 2013! Join us on a stellar weekend getaway in Central Pennsylvania on June 7-9 for Conserve the Ride 2012.

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.
