The Ventura County Adventure Ride Series - Introduction



Click Image to visit the VCARS site
You don't need a BMW to take part in the Ventura County Adventure Ride Series, sponsored by BMW Motorcycles of Ventura County. You don't need to wait for 2009, either: The series starts in late September, 2008. This series is designed to – well; it’s designed to be fun! We’ll take you out of Urbania and introduce you to some great dual sport riding areas, ripe for exploration. Each ride will take us into the beautiful California backcountry, riding with old friends and making new ones.

As a whole, the series has even more to offer: The first ride is an easy introduction to dual sport riding, and the last ride is a serious challenge, designed to allow intermediate / advanced riders the opportunity to seek the limits of their ability. This continual slight increase in riding challenge over the course of the series provides riders the opportunity to gradually increase their riding ability in a non-instructional, learn-by-doing setting.

Although designed with the novice rider in mind, the early rides always offer opportunities for more experienced riders to push themselves as well if desired. Likewise, more challenging rides late in the series often include go-arounds, allowing all riders the opportunity to choose their level of challenge.

Visit the VCARS website for further information about the series, and for listings of VCARS rides. Don't wait until 2009; the first ride is scheduled for 09/27/08! Likewise, the VCARS Retrospective Celebration & Slideshow, scheduled for 09/25/08, is not to be missed if you are a VCARS vet, or if you are hoping to participate in any part of the upcoming series.

Basically well-graded. R1 plus a few turns & inclines, which is about R2. Then add some shallow ruts & small loose rocks...
