My project to map all of the dirt roads in the Catskills is getting close to Hunter

I just added a route to Lexington, about 7 miles away.

Is there training and/or guided tours or are we just set loose on the mountain Saturday morning?
It seems like camping is allowed--will we have access to running water and/or showers?

Thanks, I'm looking forward to this.

Greetings,

Generally speaking there is not need to sign up, just show up and have fun. This may change for this year for some of the events; for the Rip Van Winkle one must register and the nominal fee ($30) is there to cover prizes, some swag, a few slices of pizza and the required insurance. At the minimum you'll need to sign a waiver or two to play.

There is no formal training planned. New for this year is the GS challenge which will include some man-made obstacles near the base and a ride on the mountain. There will also be guided rides to the summit. Because of the number of people on the hill we cannot allow free riding, however if you're on a smaller bike and want a real challenge the barbershop ride is not to be missed.

Camping is allowed. There is running water however no showers are available. If a camper gets a mud bath we'll figure out a way to help you get comfortable.

The Rip Van Winkle 300 is an 8hr scavenger hunt using the same rules and style of play as the Iron Butt Rally. Sometime before the ride the riders are sent a .GPX file containing the locations of all the bonuses and shortly before the ride they are provided with a book providing exact details and instructions of what to do at each bonus. Most of the time it will be to take a photo of a specific sign or object.

For the RVW 300 each rider will be given a unique identifier which must appear in every photograph. Riders can use any camera they desire including phones; they will only have to show the scorer the photo, vs handing in a memory card or transferring all the photos.

There are more locations (40 +/-) than anyone could get to in 8hrs. Each location has a point value and riders choose their own route. At the end of the day riders scores are totaled and the most points wins.

These type of events are a lot of fun especially in an area such as the Catskills. We select bonus locations because they're on great roads, fit the theme of the rally or are just plain interesting.

Here is an example of a route connecting some of the bonuses that will be in the rally. It's approximately 265 miles long and my mapping software estimates it would take 7:23 minutes with no stops.



For the big bike rider one could come up Friday afternoon and probably be able to get a guided ride up the hill before doing the RVW 300 Saturday. Sunday morning the GS course and guided mountain rides will be available.

Or hang out on Saturday and participate ion or watch the GS Challenge.

If you're on a smaller bike come on up and ride the mountain with us for warm up before doing the barbershop ride.

I think this will be a great weekend for riders of street and dual-sport bikes. It doesn't have to be sporting the roundel, bring your favorite ride and let's have fun.

Greetings,


Registration for the Rip Van Winkle is on-line and open. Check in will be Friday evening.

Registration for the GS challenge and other events is not on-line (not sure if it will be) but will be open at 08:00 Saturday morning. It may also open Friday evening.

The GS challenge with judging and prizes will take place on Saturday, however I'm sure there will be plenty of chances to try the course on Sunday. Summit rides will take place both days.

More information will be available next week.

Ritalin Boy--

Thanks for the additional info. I'm in the smaller bike (WR250R) camp and I'm a moderately experienced offroad rider.

I'm still confused about Saturday as far as dual sport riding goes: the barbershop ride is later with guided rides of some sort in the morning as warm-up?

And Sunday will be guiding tours plus the GS course will be open?

My room is booked, I'm looking forward to it. Thanks.

Heh, quoting myself.
I'm out. I just signed up for the Shenandoah 500, which is the same weekend.
