CMG’s sister company, Canada Moto Rallies, has just announced that registration for the 2015 Fundy Adventure Rally, sponsored by BMW Motorrad Canada, is now officially open.
The rally’s inaugural year (2014) saw an impressive 61 riders sign up for the southern New Brunswick event. The 2015 event takes place at the same location (Adair’s Wilderness Lodge) on the weekend of 10/11/12/13 September.
Early bird registration costs $135 (saves $40 on the regular rate) and includes the following:
- Meals (featuring new menus for 2015 and Sunday brunch):
- Event T-Shirt
- Friday Activities, Sponsor Expos (new) and BMW Demo Rides
- Saturday Ride (improved and updated route from 2014)!
- Sunday Awards Presentation (new) & Charity Raffle for IWK
New this year is a special two-session rider training day on the Thursday, with BMW Motorrad GS Instructor Clinton Smout, who is one of only a handful of Canadian riders who has achieved the international BMW GS certification.
Registration for this is separate from the main rally, with a three hour session costing $125 – saving $20 on the reg rate and guaranteeing you a spot.
Saturday’s ride is designed for all Adventurists from the relative novice who has yet to really venture off-road, to the experienced off-roader looking for a bit of a challenge on an adventurous, picturesque, and memorable loop.
The 500+km base loop uses easy dirt and gravel roads designed to accommodate adventure bikes with a minimum front wheel size of 19-inches (cast or spokes) and stock(ish) tires. The loop is broken up into sections, with each leg ending at a gas station. Riders have up to 12 hours to complete the rally.
In order to accommodate the rider who wants a bit more of a challenge and has a suitable machine (21-inch front wheel, more aggressive tires, and some engine protection) to match, we have more difficult options that can be taken at the start of each leg. Although these options will vary in difficulty, the idea is to still enable big bikes with a suitable set up and capable rider to ride them.
