This will be a 3‐day woman focused (couples welcome) guided tour of the NEBDR sections 1 through 3 for adventure style motorcycles, starting in Hancock NY and ending in Readsboro, VT. The route combines dirt and gravel roads with some drivable trails in the forests and challenging mud and rock tracks through the Berkshires. All routes are connected by back country roads and some highways. You should be able to travel 100 miles between gas stops. Each rider must be equipped with their bike specific tool kit, axle nut wrench and tubes specific to their own motorcycle. All motorcycles must be street legal and in good working condition. Tech inspection will take place upon arrival. Knobby Tires, off‐road riding boots, and protective gear are highly recommended. The routes range from beginner friendly to experienced and there will also be optional challenge sections. Middle weight bikes are best recommended for this tour. If you are riding a big adventure bike, please be experienced in riding it off road as there will be on/off challenges throughout the regular route without bypass options.

Accommodations will be in Campgrounds. Your bike should be able to carry all necessary equipment for camping. All camping will be in established campgrounds with restrooms, showers, and cooking / firepit facilities. You can also pick up food as we go along the route for the evening’s meal. Restaurants are limited in some sections, so be ready to “eat out of a bag” as needed. Jetboil type stoves will be available if you choose to bring freeze dried foods.

Day 1 will start in Hancock, NY. The tours will start each day from the previous day's end location where we will be camping. We will have lead and sweep riders on the routes equipped with tools and Satellite communication devices in case of emergency. Cell phone signal is limited in most sections of these routes. The entry includes camping fees, the guided ride, logistics, and mechanical assistance. Meals are not included. We will have a riders meeting each day at 9:00am, the ride will start immediately after. This route includes some of the best riding the North East has to offer along with it’s beautiful scenery and quaint towns. The planned routes allow for picture stops along the many waterfalls, overlooks, and general stores.
