Last year’s Apple Jam’s North AND South Cascades Roaming Rallies were such a big success, that we’ve decided to allow riders a choice of riding the North end of the Cascades for four days/nights, OR four days/nights riding the South end of the Cascades, OR for the ULTIMATE Summer Vacation, ride BOTH of AJ’s Cascades Roaming Rallies back-to-back for up to EIGHT days and SEVEN nights of riding and camping (and EATING!) in Oregon’s great Cascade mountains !!!

The Roaming Rally RIDE….
Apple Jam’s Roaming Rallies for 2019 are both prepaid dual-sport motorcycle rider’s Catered Camping Events. These are not Tours, so you’ll get to ride where/how and as slow or just as fast as you want, then you’ll get to camp and feast with me for up to eight days and seven nights. We have included ALL camping costs, including a safe place to park your rigs while out riding. We will also provide lots of coffee and a great breakfasts AND a sack lunch for every morning before departure…Then we will all go roaring somewhere through the forest to great designated campspots along the way where you’ll feast on GREAT catered dinners and eat like Kings and Queens. How you get to camp each night is up to you…..Do the CDR, do the OBDR, or take one of many, many, other good and great BAD roads to reach our evening camping destinations.
Also included with your entry fee is cartage of all your normal camping gear (please be reasonable here) and a standard fold-up camp chair to each night’s camping destination. This will allow riders to pack some extra luxuries that you don’t really wanna carry on your bikes while you ride hard. All riders should always ride with all their own overnight emergency stuff (just in case shit happens!), along with the normal list of other safety stuff, and of course all the basic repair necessities like tubes and tools. We’re not gonna babysitcha, we wanna have fun too!
Roaming Rally Camping….
Apple Jam’s Roaming Rallies for 2019 provides luxury camping outfitting services, and all the hot good food, breakfast, lunch and dinner, fresh drinking water, and plenty of firewood and camping with new riding friends will be provided with your entry fee. ALL camping costs are also covered. If ya wanna BYOB, we’ll be happy to help you keep it cold in our big coolers and also provide all the ice for y’all to share. We’ll even buy all the ice forya and stock your coolers along the way. It’s the fun camping and great food you’re paying for, not the ride (insurance bs), so download all the tracks you wanna use before you get to the event site. We will be providing no directions except the location of each night’s camp…….Ride Your Own Ride.
Roaming Rally Rider Requirements
Riders should sport a current OHV Sticker on their bikes and carry an OHV/ATV Safety Card as required in Oregon at OHV areas. The CDR route passes through several OHV areas. These areas will have go-arounds that you can self-navigate around if you refuse to get an OHV Pass for your bike, but it’s only $10.50 from any Moto shop so don’t be cheap: that money builds trails that we all get to ride!
Riders shall ride in TEAMS. Minimum two riders is generally the fastest, three is a great size (and most fun?). Four rider teams are fine too, but start to slow down a bit. Five or six riders are already too big of a team, IMO, and they usually get in the way of the smaller teams. Worse yet, the larger teams tend to lose track of team riders….which really sucks for everybody on that big team. All riders should be well prepared and carry all their own safety, emergency, and mechanical gear to make themselves self-sufficient, even riding with a team. All riders shall wear all the appropriate-for-falling-down riding gear that will keep them safe in crashes that can happen. Teams will all be responsible for each other, and teams will leave no rider behind, as this is the ADVRider way. This will be our only requirement: to have riding partners when riders leave each day. It will be very easy to get partnered up if you come by yourself, especially for all the first night camping arrivals around the campfire. Mix and match team members, change the teams along the way, whatever. Just stick together with somebody. Trust me, most of these folks are just like you,…and you will get along with ALL of them.
