Geico Adventure Rally – Nov. 12-15, 2020

 Gather your team and get ready to ride the best of the Anza Borrego Desert.

Published on 05.18.2020

Join the GEICO Motorcycle Adventure Rally & Camp this November, in Julian, CA. The format has evolved from past Adventure Rallies in the Sierras and Rockies, creating even more opportunities to discover diverse riding in a location just waiting to be explored on adventure motorcycles.

Changes include options to ride one, two, or three days of the event. Top point collectors will be honored each day as well as the team that collects the most points over three days of riding. A more-robust offering of camping options is also a big change. From tents to RVs to on-site cabins, all are available at the Stagecoach Trails Base Camp. Camping not your thing? Just 12 miles up the road is Julian, California, with plenty of lodging to fit any taste and budget. Other changes include an increased vendor area, a lower cost to participate, and expanded food options—including the ability to bring your own.

The result? More riding and overnight options, more cool happenings at base camp, and more adventure! Think of it like summer camp—but with adventure motorcycles and post-ride beer and stuff. And it happens in the fall instead of summer. Taking part is easy. Step one: Find a friend, build a team. It’s a team event, needing at least two riders to form a team, but you can ride with as many teammates as you desire, so long as you go to all points together.

Teams can earn points the following ways:
• Participate in on-site Special Tests. These riding tests allow you to score team points (all teammates should try, they’re fun) by completing various low-speed maneuvers.
• Go find cool points—rated Green (easy/pavement), Blue (medium/easy dirt), Black (hard/sand, technical off-road)—and record your findings, posting them on Instagram and marking them on your team score card.

Step one and half: Have no friends? We understand and will find you a partner at no charge!

Answer a few questions and we will link you with another lost soul.

Step two: Register! All team members must register via our registration site. You will receive
the following neat stuff for the low price of $50.

Participants receive the following:
• Rider entry for point challenge
• Event T-shirt
• Event sticker
• Custom ADV Rally Map with all marked destinations
• Custom ADV Rally Clue Book—without this, you will not have a clue
• Event number plate sticker
• Goodie bag

Step three: Show up! You will enjoy the following activities over the course of the Adventure Rally & Camp:

Scheduled Activities:
• 125+ cool points of interest to find in an over 200-mile radius from base camp
• Ride one day, or ride all three
• Expanded base camp activities
• Expanded vendor row
• Test rides
• Product demos
• Rider training
• Skills test
• ADV training
• Intro to ADV riding
• Saturday evening BBQ and party
• Food
• Brews
• Cool awards
• Rad raffle

If you’ve thought about adventure riding but haven’t actually done it, head to Camp ADV Rally and instructors will be there to help get you off on the right knob. Learn the basics of ADV riding from experienced riders who will teach you the proper techniques and help get you comfortable maneuvering an adventure bike in the dirt before you venture off the asphalt.

Many of event partners will be hosting Test Rides, offering you a chance to try the latest motorcycles and gear in the same kind of environment you would use it in, should you decide to
purchase. And that is just the point, this allows you the chance to try product in a relevant environment in a relevant manner to let you form a real opinion. Riders of all skill levels are welcome. All off-road-capable, street-legal motorcycles welcome.
