    The BBAC is a two day event. The main route is a big bike friendly tour of scenic dirt and country roads. Please note that this ride is designed for Adventure bikes (i.e. GS 800/1200, KTM 990, etc) and Dual Sport thumpers (i.e. DR 650, DRZ 400, WR250R, etc).
    This ride is not for 2 stroke enduro bikes.
    There are optional hero sections made up of rough woods roads for properly equipped bikes.

    Team Work Makes the Dream Work
    For the first time in Berkshire Big Adventure history, we are providing GPX (GPS eXchange format) to participants for nav. We encourage rider teams of four, not to exceed eight, with at least one of those riders having a GPS on board, that is also well versed in GPX, and can pickup your bike without assistance. : ) Along with the traditional BBA route, our goal is to also challenge the most experienced riders.


    ADV Route – Two day main route is a big bike friendly tour of scenic dirt and country roads

    ADV Challenge Route – Two day route over dirt roads, unmaintained dirt roads and fire roads.Route will traverse Hero II's and III's.
    Knobby tires and previous technical dirt experience recommended

    ADV Super Hero’s – The ADV Challenge Route with optional Hero IV's and V's. Think of this as a Berkshire Triple for Big Bikes.
    Expect to be picking your bike up, and it's anyone's guess what the mud will be like. Ride with your team and expect the worst. Sections catering to well maintained bikes with aggressive tires.
