    OVR3 is on! For the third year in a row, the Ottawa Valley Rally will be going down early June 2020. For this year OVR3 will be held June 4th-7th. Every year we’ve worked hard to put together awesome routes and tracks that are fun and challenging to ride. This year is no different, as OVR3 will feature some virgin single track that we’ve been working on ourselves. Outside of Valley Rally crews, OVR3 participants will be the first riders to run this section….and its good!! 2020 will again feature two route classes, Dual Sport and Enduro. Both blue and green plated bikes are welcome. Last year was an awesome time and we more than doubled our numbers from OVR1, so save that date folks! Registration opens up Jan 2nd.

    More details will be posted up shortly and as we get closer to the event date, so keep an eye out.
    We can't wait for this one!

    They might not be able to promise it will be dryer, but there is a very good chance it will not be more wet...lol.

    Had a great time last year.

    Hope everyone is having a great xmas! Just a quick note in advance of OVR3 registration, which opens up January 2nd... New for this year, OVR registration can all be done via the Valley Rally Enduro website (www.valleyrallyenduro.com) and we will now be accepting CC and PP as a method of payment. We will also continue to accept E-transfers as well. If this is your preferred method of payment, simply send the E-Transfer to valleyrallyenduro@gmail.com and include team info in the notes section:

    1.Team Name

    2.Names (first and last) and email for each team member.

    3.Make/Model of bike each person will be riding

    4.Level of riding experience

    5.Indicate ticket preference for each team member i.e. Basic camping, FS Camping/Trailer site or Cabin


    All right.... back to holiday fun!

    Does it make a difference to you as to which method we use to pay? If we use credit card are you paying a percentage? For example if 100 riders sign up using credit card does 2% of total profits go to credit card companies? Or are credit card companies a necessary evil to expand the overall participation for this event?

    I don't know that it is strictly "necessary" for expanded participation at this point, but it certainly gives folks more options on how to pay. And yes, they take their pound of flesh for sure.... no getting around that unfortunately.

    But to answer your question... use which ever method is more convenient.

    Cool, do you care if I sign up as a single entrant and my teammates sign up at a later date when they decide? I’ll be wanting a cabin again for sure this year.

    Sorry for the delay... was in transit. It would be best to sort out your team and register as a team in order to secure a cabin. It is much easier for us to organize and assign cabins this way. However, if you find yourself short on team mates, drop me a PM and we'll sort ya out ;)

    I just finished bugging 8 dudes for money for our trip to WV at the end of March. I don’t know if I have it in me again so soon to ask for more :(

    I’m sorry to say the chances for this event being a go are not looking good :(

    I managed to get a team and now it’s the end of the world. Any plans on rescheduling? Or perhaps selling the maps individually might just stay at the resort separate from any organized event and ride. After all this covid stuff clears away of course.

    Hey, I'm wondering if there's any updates on this event? With all this covid stuff going on can the rally still happen? Will it be at a later date?

    Sadly, OVR3 has been postponed until 2021.
    Thankfully, that gives the guys time to cut even more amazing trails so that when OVR3 does happen it'll be even more incredible!
