Adventure Palooza

*This event is neither sponsored or organized by Gateway BMW, we just think it’s a great idea for a ride*

Coming up at the end of September is a really neat rally, Adventure Palooza. Routes lead from the four cardinal directions to a location near Mexico, Missouri, where riders will find camping, dinner, and a band. From their website:

ADVENTURE PALOOZA (SEPT 30, 2017) WILL BE AN EVENT LIKE NO OTHER! ADVENTURE PALOOZA WILL TEST YOUR ABILITY TO NOT ONLY NAVIGATE YOUR ADVENTURE BIKE, BUT CHALLENGE YOU TO COMPLETE CERTAIN TASKS (DON’T BE INTIMIDATED, THIS WILL BE A BLAST!) A QUICK SUMMARY IS ON THE NOTECARD BELOW, AND LOTS OF DETAILS BELOW THAT. IF YOU NEED MORE CHECK OUT THE FAQ. IF YOU ALREADY REALIZE THIS IS EPIC AND YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OUT THEN PLEASE REGISTER NOW

There will be GPS tracks, an app for your phone, and a password released to paid participants prior to the event. There will be four starting points throughout Missouri (North, East, South, & West depending on where you are coming from) to converge on a beautiful bit of farm property in Mexico, Missouri (camping under the big bright stars of rural missouri anyone?). The ride will take 5 to 9 hours to complete depending on rider’s determination and/or skill. The tracks will be suitable for ’big bikes’ and have several bonus alternate detours off the main track for more adventurous riders. You will want to have your mobile app downloaded and ready on a smartphone (if participating as a team, only one needed per team) and your GPS.

Participants will navigate from their starting point, while transmitting GPS checkpoints & photos into our smart-phone APP that will feed all the information back to our base camp. There will be points earned for each waypoint completed and/or task completed with bonus points given for creativity. You can fall in at any point on the track you wish, it’s up to you how many points you want to get! For example if you are riding from the North you can start at Moulton, Iowa… or get in at Kirksville, Missouri… it’s all good!
