    Format of Event
    This event will be run in a similar format to what Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders has done with several of our "Rally" style events. There is a central base-camp with camping, we feed you and run the event from there..You just need to get your camping booked and bring your bike and a sense of adventure and fun. You will meet some of the nicest people at our event and make friendships for life.

    Who we are?
    RMAR was the first AMA sanctioned ADV rider club in the USA. We are a non-profit organization. All funds in excess of our overhead costs will be donated to other non-profit OHV friendly organizations fighting for our rights every day. We will look for a local club to support, along with COHVCO, the Trails Preservation Alliance, or Ride with Respect as possibilities.

    The Mission of Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders (RMAR) is to:
    1. Positively Impact and Influence the lives of those that ride with us, respecting each other and supporting one another.
    2. Promote Dual-Sport/Adventure Motorcycle Events in the Rocky Mountain Region with a focus on responsible and respectable behavior and riding on our public lands and in the local communities, adhering to all AMA policies and requirements.
    3. Support fund-raisers for state and/or local trail riding clubs or Associations/Coalitions/Alliances that champion our sport and/or fight legislatively/politically for public land access for motorcycling.

    Who is this event for?
    This event will be for all types of street legal dual-sport motorcycles but we are also putting a particular emphasis on the Honda Africa Twin. We will be soliciting vendors of all kinds as well as Africa Twin specific vendors. We have some commitments already and are working on more! We anticipate hosting a raffle for donated product where all funds generated will be donated to our chosen non-profit recipient.

    Mark your calendars and stand by for registration information coming soon!!

    Regards,
    The RMAR Event Team

    CAMPING AND LODGING


    Base Camp Gunnison KOA
    https://koa.com/campgrounds/gunnison
    105 County Road 50, Gunnison, CO 81230
    800-562-1248

    You have to reserve your own camping spot. We have learned that it is a logistical disaster to coordinate this ourselves. So just book yourself.

    The event area is inside the
    blue square below. We can fit a max of 125 people into that designated area. If you get a camping spot it can hold up to 4-5 people so please offer the space up on the post and charge your "renters". We recommend $20 for the 2 nights but that is up to you.

    If you want to reserve in the
    blue square area close to HQ, just insert that you need a spot with RMAR Group in the "special instructions" box when you check out online. You can call them but you might wait a few days to receive a call as the camp is semi closed for winter. You can book 100% online, its the easiest way to do it.

    With that being said outside the blue square there is no need to mention RMAR or the rally name, you are just a visitor and will be participating in the event.

    The following camping spots are for (1) person on a motorcycle and up for grabs for $20 for the two nights. Just reply that you want to reserve it and I will add your name next to it. We did this to grab a few spots to reserve the area before the general public books it.

    Spot 82a Snaga
    Spot 82b Baja_Wayne #2
    Spot 82c Baja_Wayne #3
    Spot 82d Reidy008 #1
    Spot 83a Reidy008 #2
    Spot 83b Reidy008 #3
    Spot 83c RalpS
    Spot 83d Misterk
    Spot 93a HVilla
    Spot 93b BlakeBird
    Spot 93c AngryPeppers
    Spot 93d Cidi

    The riding options are amazing!

    We’ll have maps and share some options with you to explore on your own or friends.

    The area has its own GPS enabled App called CBGTrails (CrestedButteGunnison)

    https://www.cbgtrails.com/map

    The Avenza App is also a GPS enabled app and you can download tons of trail maps including free USDA Forest Service MVUM maps.
