This Spring / Fall trip is designed for intermediate riders looking for a fun ride in some of the most iconic areas of the West. While the trip is not intented for beginners, you’ll find that most of the trails are easy, usually following large jeep trails and gravel roads. As for the paved sections, they are just as beautiful with very little traffic. However, you’ll encounter some technical sections like double tracks with rolling rocks or mud. We don’t control the climate, but we always try to propose a pavement alternative when trails are wet

Weather should be great at this time of year, but you should be prepared for a wide range of temperatures.

Last, but not least, we will be riding the Tenere 700 in very remote areas where search and rescue might need hours to reach us. Safety will be our top priority over performance.

Overall, the challenge is perfectly doable for any rider in good physical condition willing to put in the effort to live the adventure.
