GS Giants – Muddy Minuteman
August 10 – August 14 EDT
The Muddy Minuteman is a 33 hour adventure rally, a 10 hour mini adventure and a rally all in one!
The 33 and 10 hr adventures are what the AMA considers a bonus hunt. Bonus locations will be spread throughout New England. Each bonus location will have a point value; to collect the points riders will need to visit a location and perform a specific task such as take a photograph. There is no set route. Riders will receive a .GPX file of the bonus locations prior to the event.
There will be a 9hr period (Friday 21:00 to Saturday 06:00) were riders will not be allowed to collect points except for resting. To maximize these points riders will need to set up a campsite and cook a meal; returning to camp for the night is also an option that will score points.
While this event is designed for the large bike rider with some experience off pavement, some bonus locations will be considered quite difficult to reach and will be noted as such in the rallybook. Teams are highly recommended.
For the 33hr and 10hr rally the motorcycle must have a minimum engine displacement of 300cc. Bikes will be split into classes based on displacement.
There will also be a self-guided easy adventure ride and some more challenging rides available via .GPX files for those that prefer to just ride, baby ride and have a good time off the bike. There are also miles of trails on site for those who simply wish to come hang out. Dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Great riding both paved and dirt close by, trails on site too. Evening fun with fire.
Our host is Camp Bobriwka in Colebrook, Ct. It is a fantastic spot for a rally on 350 very private acres with a dining hall, bunk houses, bathhouse and more. Wonderful field camping with afternoon shade as well as dispersed camping by water. This is the spot where Rock Lobster was to be held.
