AltRider Conserve the Ride

This Fourth of July weekend, AltRider is inviting riders to join Conserve the Ride 2017 and experience some of the best adventure riding the East Coast has to offer. With an all-new location in Palmerton, PA, at the Blue Mountain Resort, this three-day getaway will offer routes for riders of every skill level.

From winding dirt trails in rolling hills and paths shaded by lush forests, the event will take riders on an adventure that embraces the beauty that can only be experienced on two wheels. Partnering with Seven Mountain Conservation Corp., riders will hit the dirt knowing they are supporting the non-profit’s mission of “minimizing the environmental impact on, and the preservation of, Central Pennsylvania’s trails.” Five square meals, two nights of camping at the scenic Blue Mountain Resort, presentations by professional ADV riders, prize giveaways, and off-road seminars with dozens of riders who share a passion for the unknown will create an unforgettable experience that benefits a cause all riders can get behind. The 6th Annual Conserve the Ride takes place June 30 – July 2, 2017.

“Conserve the Ride really came from two key realizations—first, that sometimes ADV riders need help finding other awesome riders at their skill level to ride with. Second, that if we don’t work together to help protect the areas we love to ride in, no one will,” said AltRider President Jeremy LeBreton.

This year’s event will offer riders one of three unique GPS-guided riding experiences at either the novice, intermediate, or expert level. Groups of 6-8 riders will pair up to tackle more than 150 miles of water crossings, mountain passes, forests, and meadows in the peak of the summer bloom. After meeting for a catered lunch halfway through Saturday’s journey and riding on through the afternoon, groups will meet back at camp to enjoy dinner, local craft beers, and live entertainment, while swapping stories and getting a chance to meet well-known ADV legends. Riders will also have the opportunity to take an ADV training class on Friday, hosted by the experts at BC Moto Adventures.

Registration starts at $305. To learn more, visit Conserve the Ride 2017.
