THE
WILD BEAR SAFARI

DUALSPORT/ADV RIDE

APRIL 21-23, 2023

REGISTRATION OPENS FEBRUARY 1

ABOUT

Each year the Apollo Motorcycle Club puts on a fundraiser called the “Wild Bear Safari”. It started out in 2014 as an Adventure Ride but as the years passed we also added a dualsport route too. The ADV route is designed around bigger bikes (75% street) while the dualsport route is designed around smaller bikes up to 650-700 cc (85% dirt with most of it single track). We usually have around 130 bikes each year that ride in small groups so everyone can ride at their own pace. We provide the route sheets and GPS tracks and every year is a different route. Entry includes camping, 2 breakfasts, a BBQ dinner and an event T-shirt.  The money we raise from this event helps to pay Apollo club expenses.
