FUN

The 'not so serious' series.

Keeping riding fun and maybe a little competitive amongst friends.

MORE ABOUT THE RIDES

The rides are created to suit all bikes from a Grom to a GS, leaving out the hardcore enduro loops in favour of 50/50 offroad adventure roads and trails.

Awards and prizes based on timing and accuracy, laughter and pink tutu's possible for lack of either !

Courses are generally between 250 - 350kms per day and will have 3 checkpoints you must sign in at to be eligible for awards.

Each event has an average time set during the pre-rides, points are awarded based on average times and deductions for missed checkpoints, wooden spoon awards, tutus and pink whistles.

You'll find out how these are awarded when you get one yourself or laugh at seeing one presented on the rides.

Why GPS Navigation?

Let's face it, when you're Adventure Riding, be that solo, travelling, touring or heading out for an epic multi day ride, you'll be sure to rely on either a paper map, Google Maps, a phone app or your GPS at some stage.

 

Improving your skills locally on meticulously planned routes before heading off into the unknown is smart, safe and a whole lot of fun. 

If you don't have a GPS, start with a phone and handlebar mount, we can set you up with an app quickly to get started, you can also ride with someone else if you want. 

We create the highest quality RiderRoutes and continually check them for accuracy so you can just load and go. Where necessary we'll drop cornermen and impliment a lead/sweep system if an event requires last minute changes.

 

With over 20 years of mapping, route planning, road book experience and event manangement, we create a wide range of Adventure Riding events that we know you'll love.   

BLITZ Rides are great if you're just getting a taste of Adventure riding or learning navigation skills, experienced riders will enjoy getting out for a blast too.

Barkbusters BLITZ events are open to all licenced riders and discounts apply to NAVIG8 subscribers.

 

What others are saying.

Russell Paterson

First and foremost really enjoyable. Well organised, good communication and cater well for all levels of rider.

Michael Risi

Got the files and downloaded them. This is quality work. Great set of instructions and well laid out easy to follow ride plan. I’m a suck it and see Garmin Basecamper and I uploaded to my Zumo 590 without a hitch. I’m set. Looking forward to Saturday’s ride.

Well done.

Elton Button

What a great day with everyone on the Ride360 Barkbuster 1 Day Blitz and big thanks to the support Crew and all the sponsors 

Richard Novatin

A big shout out of thanks to Darren Cook who gave up some of his evening tonight to help me (a navigator device newbie incompetent) to get the functionality out of a NavVI from such incredibly detailed and well built “track files” he built
