    Located on the VT/NH line, adjacent to the NEBDR route, it’s become the biggest ADV event in the Northeast.
    Over $10k in prizes like Touratech $1,000+ panniers, Klim jackets, Triumph helmets, etc.
    ADV demos from Triumph, Yamaha, Honda, Harley-Davidson, and probably more.
    Guided and unguided rides to interesting spots.
    New women’s programs and training.

    I'm signed up for this year. Can't wait. Sounds like it could be a very good time. Wanted to go for a few years but just never worked out. I hope the weather's good.

    I attended for the first time last year and have to say it was the best ADV rally I have done in NE. Signed up and can't wait to be out there again! Great ride for all abilities and bikes!

    Is this event sold out? Or is there a problem with the website
    Is this event sold out, or is there a technical problem with the dirtdazerally.com website? When I click on the Register link it brings up a Page Not Found error message.

    The event is sold out including day passes. I was told to check back starting 7/1/21. They are hoping to be able to add day passes and unguided rides. There will be no multi day passes nor guided rides offered.

    oh wow, thanks @OhioRyder for confirming. There is no information on the website or a phone number to call for status prior to your post. At least I am going to the Soggy Bottom Fest this year but hopefully they do open up some unguided rides or day passes for DirtDaze.

    The Dirt Daze organizers have released a very limited amount of registration for both Short and Long Adventure Packages. I, myself, just signed up for a Short Tour. I exchanged emails with a tour organizer (Tabitha) and she said that once these are filled (likely this morning), only Day Passes will be available. Here's the link: https://dirtdazerally.com/sign-up-2/

    I'm signed up for the Let's Get Dirty ride with Fred Scott. I've been on a couple of his rides at this point all of which have been awesome. They have been super challenging and have really pushed my limits. Hopefully my Super Swampers, I mean Motoz Tractionator's will meet the needs of the ride. PXL_20210702_013553371~2.jpg

    This will be my first rally of any type. I am excited to go. I'll be camping in a tent. I took the full week off and will take my time traveling fully loaded via moto from NJ. Will take a scenic route if anyone is coming from the south I'd like to chat about routes. Possible to join up.

    Dirt Daze will also be my first Rally as well. I am located in upstate New York on CT/MA border. From Jersey, you'll need to cross the Hudson River at some point and make your way east by northeast. That being said, I would be on your way to Dirt Daze. I know the scenic route through Litchfield county CT and Sheffield Mass quite well. Let me know if you are interested. T.C. Morton

    Anybody riding up to Dirt Daze from southwestern New England? (Litchfield/Berkshire foothills)? Let me know if you want to meet up en route. I have GPX files of NEBDR but I will not be using turn by turn navigation with a Garmin etc. I will be viewing the files on my laptop/phone, and mapping a route the old fashioned way. :-)

    @TC Rocker, So I am in Westchester County and will be riding up to Dirt Daze. Unfortunately I could only get 2 day passes but with the gpx files, I will probably tag along with other riders who are on the same boat as I. I just did Soggy Bottom Ralley by Kissell in PA which was my very first rally (just got home about an hour ago) so Dirt Daze would be my second. I am also pretty good with GPX track loaded on Garmin and I have been riding on the easier offroad sections around Mt. Riga, Skiff Mountain Rd, Mount Greylock areas so I am used to going through Rt.22 to the River road by Bulls Bridge, Kent, Limerock, Caanan, CT and Sheffield, Great Barrington, Pittsfield, Stockbridge, Adams and up through Mohawk trail in MA that would connect to 91 North. I am down to ride together, let me know and I can PM my details.

    I am in eastern Dutchess County (Wassaic). Many of the places you mentioned, Skiff Mountain (Macedonia Brook Park), Kent, Cornwall, Limerock.. yep, that's my neighborhood. Let's do this! I also just have a 2 day pass-- can you go Thursday/Friday? I am heading up on Wed (booked a motel) and I signed up for a guided ride for Thurs.

    So I was actually planning to go up on Thursday due to some work conflict on Wednesday and stay till Saturday for some of the festivities. Since you signed for the Thursday morning ride, you probably aren't flexible. What time on Wednesday are you planning to leave? Let me see if I can swing it somehow.

    I am flexible regarding departure time on Wednesday--as long as time is budgeted to get up there by nightfall. My guided ride begins early Thursday morning.
