The AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Adventure Bike Challenge allows riders to test their big bike off-road skills. This is a short, unguided AMA-sanctioned ride that includes tight trails with trees, mud, sand, rocks, log crossings, uphills and downhills.

For a $5 donation to the Hall of Fame, participants can ride as many loops as they like from 4:30-6 p.m. Ride with caution. Walking the course before riding it is recommended. Adventure or dual-sport bikes only. No competition bikes allowed.

Local vendors will be on hand, including Motorcycle Ohio, ABATE of Ohio, AMA-chartered clubs and visitors bureaus.

Those who join the AMA or renew a membership and get a free AMA compact backpack.

Tickets will be available for a cash donation—one ticket for a $5 donation or five tickets for a $20—for the “Lords of the Board Track” AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame raffle bike, which will be on display inside the museum. Learn more about the raffle bike at americanmotorcyclist.com/raffle-bike.

To mitigate exposure in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the following measures will be in place:

  • • Indoor occupancy to the museum will be limited 70 visitors at a time.
  • • Motorcycle parking will be spaced to allow social distancing.
  • • Social distancing will be required for guests.
  • • Face coverings are mandatory for staff and volunteers and encouraged for visitors.
  • • Hand-sanitizing stations will be located throughout the facility.
  • • Disinfecting wipes will be provided at high-touch areas.
  • • Signs will convey current state guidelines.
  • • Temperature checks and health questionnaires will be completed for staff members and volunteers.

Ohio requires that people wear masks in Fairfield County, where the AMA is located, in public buildings at all times and in outdoor public spaces whenever 6 feet of social distancing isn’t possible.
