    When: October 5-8, 2017

    This is an Unorganized Self Supported ADV oriented event.

    Last year was a ton of fun, we attracted riders from all over the country and we look forward to doing it again this year.

    I will post street routes and dirt routes for all to enjoy. Last year we all saw Toroweap, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Lake Powell, Brian Head, Duck Creek, Jacobs Lake and all the surrounding areas. Lots of Dirt! Enjoy daily rides from 10 miles to 400 miles.

    Temperatures will be perfect at the higher elevations.

    Please check out: www.zionponderosa.com for campsite details.
    If you plan on joining us, please make a reservation asap!!!! Dry Camping will be at the same wooded camp area as last years spring event.

    Tell them that you are with the "Flying Monkey Adventure Riders" so they place you near the fun!

    $11.50 per night dry camping is available through Zion Ponderosa and it includes hot showers, two pools, and two hot tubs!

    RV Sites and Cabins are also available. Check their website for pricing!

    Meals:http://www.zionponderosa.com/dining-A.html

    I had a blast last year and look forward to going again!

    Longtallsally: There were plated 250F's to GS 1200's. Depends on the ride you want to go on.

    Right on. I'll decide when it gets closer. All bikes have plates and I've got all the tanks for whatever can be thrown at the little bike, so we'll see. Thanks!

    There's the one for KLR riders and then the one for everybody else. For the KLR riders there are lots of pictures, small words, a layaway option, and their fine print says "no trades." :lol3

    been wanting to ride this area for many years. so very interested in this ride for a few of our clan. considering flying in and renting bikes and cabin rental. does the group return back to home base every evening or camping at diff locations as the ride progresses? any suggestions on cabins or bike rental would also be appreciated :D

    Thanks

    Hope so. I'm thinking right now I'll do the Jeep with a roof top tent, and bringing the little bike....

    Yes you can bring your trailer in and dry camp. This area (tent city) is great for any type of tent, truck, trailer, and RV camping. No ammenities though.

    The other side of the resort has traditional RV and tent sites. The only drawback to our location was the long distances to the showers, baths, and pools. They had started construction on a bath house for this rustic area but I don't know when the completion date was to be. My understanding was they were going to grade the roads for easier access to bigger rigs. This will take away from some of the rustic appeal in my opinion.

    Check the information on trailer towing through the tunnel in Zion Park. It may be better to go around to the south.

    Great event, well run, and the riding is spectacular for any type of bike.
