    Do the RV spots have electric? I saw no hook ups and thought that was for waste and water.

    There are no electric hook ups, field camping. We will have the campers in a separate area away from the tenters so that you can run a generator.

    Good to know. Thank you!

    I think I read somewhere that there is an onsite supercross track. Could you please confirm that if I brought a motocross bike the track would be available for riding.

    Trying to decide which bike is best for this event Ktm 690 R or 1290 SA. I did the NEBDR last July on the 1290 SA and the Vermont class 4 trails doable , but I would have had more fun on the 690 in those sections . I'm from PA and have road the MABDR with no issues on the 1290. I will be showing up with two guys one on a 1090 and the other on the new 700 TE. They keep asking if I'm bringing my cheater bike. I'm just curios on the terrain, we do ride the 7 Mountain Dual sport every year so we are familiar with Bald Eagle. Any info appreciated .

    I found this after it was sold out. Is there day access if I just want to roll in to shoot the sh*t for a bit if I promise not to fill a growler from the community tap? ;)

    Update 7/10/21: we put the finishing touches on ride 4 this afternoon. Less than 2 weeks out! Finalized itineraries will be posted later next week and gps tracks will be emailed to all registered attendees on 7/19. Thank you to the riders that helped with today’s tracks…took some ingenuity to keep one of the bikes running after losing a timing plug!

    Add yourself to the waitlist on eventbrite and I'll get you in. I spoke with the caterer last night and we can handle 25-30 more people. If any of you have been on the waitlist, you should've received an email this morning authorizing you to complete your registrations. If not, check your spam folder!
