Nothing is more American than celebrating the natural beauty of our great country. This Fourth of July weekend, only hours from where the Declaration of Independence was signed, AltRider is inviting riders to join Conserve the Ride 2017 and experience some of the best adventure riding the East Coast has to offer. With an all-new location in Palmerton, Pennsylvania at the Blue Mountain Resort, this three-day getaway will offer routes for riders of every skill level amid gorgeous greenery.

From winding dirt trails amongst rolling hills and paths shaded by lush forests, the 2017 Conserve the Ride will take riders on an adventure that embraces the beauty that can only be experienced on two wheels. Partnering with Seven Mountain Conservation Corp., riders will hit the dirt knowing they are supporting the non-profit’s mission of minimizing the environmental impact on, and the preservation of, Central Pennsylvania’s trails. Five square meals, two nights of camping at the scenic Blue Mountain Resort, presentations by professional ADV riders, prize giveaways and off-road seminars with dozens of riders who share a passion for the unknown will create an unforgettable experience that benefits a cause all riders can get behind. The 6th Annual Conserve the Ride takes place June 30th– July 2nd, 2017.

“Conserve the Ride really came from two key realizations – first, that sometimes ADV riders need help finding other awesome riders at their skill level to ride with. Second, that if we don’t work together to help protect the areas we love to ride in, no one will”, said AltRider President Jeremy LeBreton. “Conserve the Ride handles both of these issues – riders get to meet other enthusiasts on some of the best trails in Pennsylvania while simultaneously helping us fight to keep these lands open for every motorcyclist to enjoy.”

This year’s Conserve the Ride will offer riders one of three unique GPS-guided riding experiences at either the novice, intermediate or expert level. Groups of 6-8 riders will pair up to tackle over 150 miles of water crossings, mountain passes, forests and wide open meadows in the peak of their summer bloom. After meeting for a catered lunch halfway through Saturday’s journey and riding on through the afternoon, groups will meet back at camp to enjoy dinner, adult beverages and live entertainment, while swapping war stories and getting a chance to meet well-known ADV legends. Riders will also have the opportunity to take an ADV training class on Friday, hosted by the experts at BC Moto Adventures.

“What better way to protect America’s off-road riding future than to enjoy some epic trail riding with
the good people that make up the ADV community”, said LeBreton. “Good rides, new friends, and a lifetime worth of memories in the state where this country proclaimed its independence… personally I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend.”
