Adventure riding is a great way to cover a variety of terrain, both on- and off-road.

The route typically includes limited use of highways, favoring gravel or dirt roads and less serviced forest or desert roads. Some off-road trails are used, when appropriate for adventure motorcycles. These routes should be designed to accommodate adventure motorcycles (600cc and up).

Routing may be by descriptive route sheet, arrows, ribbons, maps, GPS routes, led by guide(s) or any combination of these. No speed competition or timing is allowed. Motorcycles must be licensed and insured for street riding.

In addition to an adventure ride, an Adventure Ride Rally may offer seminars/workshops, guest speakers, vendors and/or demo rides held over a period of two or more days.
