The Show Me 200 Dual Sport and Show-Me 500 Adventure Ride

 

When is the event and how do I register?

The  Show Me 200 and 500 are co-listed and scheduled for September 14th and  15th this year.  This is a new date for us, and a rain or shine event!   Be ready with a full tank of gas both mornings.  Registration for each  event is via a mailed form which can be found within our latest  newsletter. (Link below)  

What is included?

The event will  include Saturday night dinner, lunch on the trail Saturday and Sunday,  and a light breakfast Sunday morning. For the 200, you will get gas  included on the trail.

Can I camp?

Yes,  you are more than welcome to camp at our facility on Friday and  Saturday nights.  There are also hotels in nearby towns such as Viburnum  (the closest) and Salem.  There are also a few AIR BNB rentals in the  area available now too. We have bathrooms, a shower, and a dump  station.  We have a campground located in the woods for tents and  smaller RV's.  Larger RV's and trailers can camp on the main parking lot  located across from the bathrooms and shelter area. 

What can I expect?

For  the 200, the dual sport is a mix of single-track, gravel, light  blacktop, and two-track trail.  For 2019, the course is new and will not  be run backwards from the day before.  New trail, new routes, etc.  We  will assign individuals group leaders.  Your leader will guide you  through the trails over the weekend.  As this is run on private land at  times, please NO GPS, and no riding of these trails in the future.  This  is not a race, so we can keep you and your friends together in one  group, provide a reduced course group, or if someone would like to run  with the "fast guys", we can get you in with the right group. 

For  the 500, its a mix of gravel road, light jeep trail/forest roads, and  light blacktop.  Lots of riding to be had. GPS routes are send out the  week before the event for you to load into your system.   There are no  formal group leaders.  However, riders typically group up to have some  fun. 

What sort of bikes are allowed?

All  bikes must be street legal.  The dual sport is conducive to dirtbikes,  while the 500 is geared towards the larger adventure bikes.   We see  lots of questions a bout the single cylinder adv bikes, like the 690  KTM's.  While you can ride that type of bike on the 200 dual-sport  trails, it would be a handful!  Some single-track sections are  comparable to prime enduro or harescrambles courses.
