2017 Dates:
Ride For Research, June 10-11, 2017
Big Woods 200, September 23-24, 2017

Attention: ADV riders
There are some ADV riders who come to a Dual Sport event because they want more challenge than a gravel road.  WDSR heard your feedback about the 2017 Ride For Research in June. TOO EASY#$%!!! For 2017 Big Woods 200 the Saturday loop will have at least seven optional 'hero' sections. None of these are single track. But we selected some challenging 4WD/two-track. The optional sections will be rated Easy, Medium and Difficult. Don't go into a Medium or Difficult without suitable off-road tires.

Aside from the optional hero sections the main route will use less gravel and more two-track than the 2017 RFR loop. For those of you not seeking the extra challenge we've added, don't worry. Just stay on the main route and travel slower!

Don't delay, register today! We want to fill all rider slots allocated to ADV participants. If any rider slots still remain on September 1, 2017 they will be allocated to the Dual Sport riders.

The Big Woods 200 is a 2-Day Dual Sport Event, which is sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association. Dual sport is a type of motorcycle riding which is a mix of off road trails connected with the use of roads. Participants of our events are from WI but we also draw participants from throughout the United States. Trails are used with permission and/or permits through the USFS, County forests, and private landowners. Trails range from 2 track, gravel, minimal pavement (as little as we can), and single track sections that are optional- Saturday's route is usually about 130 miles and Sunday's route is usually about 80 miles (though miles and routes change often yearly). The motorcycles are street legal motorcycles that are fully off road capable. This event is held in Wabeno, WI.

In addition to the registration fee which includes camping, meals, trail support, t-shirts and two days of great riding through the Northwoods in Wisconsin. Funds raised from raffles and proceeds go to various local charities in Forest County and surrounding counties. This is truly exciting and rewarding for the Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders to be a part of.
When Gov. Scott Walker signed 2016 Wis Act 170 into law, the new Off-Highway Motorcycle (OHM) Program was created for Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin Statutes, the OHM Program begins on October 1, 2016. Cost=$30.
