    8th Annual Flying Monkey Adventure Rally, ZION, UTAH, September 27-30, 2018


    When: September 27-30, 2018

    Where: Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, East Zion Utah

    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.

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

    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

    Family Friendly! Two Up Friendly! Bring your kids and bring your significant other. There are plenty of fun things to do when you aren't riding.

    IMPORTANT!!!
    RV SPOTS WITH HOOKUPS ARE GOING FAST. I BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE ONLY 5 OR 6 LEFT. IF YOU WANT FULL HOOKUPS MAKE YOUR RESERVATION ASAP!!
    There are plenty of DRY RV sites up to the day of the event.
    Thanks,
    Jesse

    We are leaning towards providing way points to the local hot spots this year and allowing all riders to create their own routes. It has been a trend at a few rallies over the last few years and seems to work well.
    What do you all think?

    Anyone heading down form Nor Cal? I'm outside placerville and would like to ride but have a toy hauler as an option? This would be my first Bmw rally. Hoping to attend.

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Awesome picture!! One question for the organizers if we sign up for dry camping I'm guessing the bath/shower house is close by?

    Thx,

    Jesse, no place to vote for a Beta on the poll.

    I rode my Beta there last year.
