This event is a fund raiser for UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison, WI. All raffle and auction proceeds are donated to UW-CCC. Donations are collected by club members and event participants. Checks to UW Carbone Cancer Center are accepted. Use this 2018 RFR Donation Form and bring it with you to the event and hand it in with your donations at sign in. Representatives from the UW Cancer Research Center usually come to the event to thank the club and participants for their support and to inform us of the research they have been able to perform because of the fund raising the club has made over the years. This is truly exciting and rewarding for the Wisconsin Dual Sport Riders to support research at UW-CCC to cure breast and colon cancer.
Dual Sport 101
Saturday has an optional route that is suitable for those who desire to develop skills without the pressure to keep-up with the pack. Saturday will begin with a discussion about essentials; proper tire inflation (deflation), how to read a Roll Chart, navigating ruts, riding over small logs, etc. The day's route will be shorter and the pace will be slower. Men and women and all ages are invited. Sunday's route will be the standard route when you can opt-in or opt-out of the more challenging single-track sections.
Dual Sport Ride - Off Road
Dual Sport is a type of motorcycle riding which is a mix of off road trails connected with the use of roads. 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.
Adventure Ride - Big Bike
This is for 1090R, GS1200, GS800, V-Strom, Super Tenere, Tiger, KLR650 and similar larger bikes. The route involves plenty of 4wd roads miles to develop new skills plus sandy roads, gravel roads and very little asphalt. This ride will contain more challenging hero type off-road sections based upon rider input from previous events. Saturday's route is usually ~175 miles and Sunday's route is usually ~100 miles. Suitable off-road tires are required!
