Announcing the 11th annual Smokey Bear Dual Sport Motorcycle Ride

Monday, July 29 – Friday, August 2, 2019 

Cloudcroft, New Mexico

Come spend a week riding your motorcycle in an alpine environment away from the Texas heat.


No formal rides, meetings or routes. Just an excuse to ride in the mountains and escape the Texas heat. Available terrain ranges from class 1 roads to extreme enduro type trails with astounding variety and options, in fact part of the NMBDR route goes through the area. With riders of different skill levels attending you should be able to ride with someone or a group that fits your ability. I.E. find the group that is going to ride at the level and distance you want for the day. If you need to warm up (temperature wise) and get tired of aspen and pine trees head west 10 or so miles down the mountain for some desert riding. 

My wife and I plan to arrive on Saturday night to get situated on Sunday, scouting, getting last minutes items, and maybe even riding a little.

Lodging
We stay at the Spruce Cabins, there are lots of cabins in town and several motels. We stock up on groceries in Alamogordo for sandwiches on the trail and to cook out in the evenings.

The Spruce Cabins offers a 10% motorcycle discount but you have to ask for it to receive it.

If you stay 6 nights at the Spruce Cabins, the 7th night is free, since we booked 6 nights we are going to arrive a day early and take advantage of the extra night.
