2014 Roaming Rally & Canadian Rally Challenge

Once again www.GravelTravel.ca is going to host the Roaming Rally. 2014 will mark the fourth year this event has taken place. Each year we try to improve the rally based on lessons learned from previous years...so 2014 has some changes.

2014 has three rallies. The traditional Roaming Rally. A more laid back rally focused more on mileage than rough terain, The Explorers Edition of the Roaming Rally. The third rally is The Canadian Rally Challenge. The CRC is a roadbook navigational challenge, the first of its kind in Canada.

Please see www.GravelTravel.ca for more information.

Cya in the new year

So is the main route two-up friendly? My chances of attending go way up if so....

Roaming Rally route is a tamed down version of previous years. gravel roads and easy two track...but way out in the middle of nowhere

Fuel distances will be far and few between

In a few spots...300 km from the nearest paved road.

Two up? I wouldn't want my wife on the back but for someone who doesn't mind bumping down 600 km of gravel roads in a day, day after day...doable.

A few cool things along the way like a hand drawn ferry over a river, big wide open sandy roads for hundreds of kilometers at a time...different than years past. Easy but longer, much more remote (aka bailing out isnt really an option in certain places). Still 3 good days of riding and camping. A chunk of the route utilizes the TCAT...

The route is perfect, I think, for what adv bikes need to be. Nimble enough for a splash or two of excitement, fuel capacity, reliable for remote areas (towing your buddy for 300 km of gravel roads is gonna suck....and ya know someone is gonna end up doing it ), able to carry tools, gear, etc...challenging in length each day, day after day....should be fun Its not a dual sport route , rather an adv style of route if that makes sense? I'd say last years route was a dual sport route.

A few logistics left to sort then we'll be good to go for exact details
