Mini Peaks Trail Ride

The Mini Peaks Trail Ride is an excursion taking riders to the northeastern Ontario communities of Bancroft, Calabogie, and Madawaska. The June ride will leave Barrie on June 10th for 4 days and 3 nights, while the September ride will leave Barrie on September 1st for 5 days and 4 nights.

This ride is perfect for all types of adventure riders, whether you ride a KLR 650 all the way up to a BMW 1250GSA.  Smaller bikes  can handle this route, although expanded fuel capacity is recommended.  All overnights will be in motels or at private locations, no camping. 

 

The price of the Mini Peaks Trail Ride is $200.00

What is included on the Mini Peaks Trail Ride:

 

  • We organize all routes from beginning to end, so you just show up and ride!  We’ll provide each rider with the GPS routes for the 9 days and load it onto their GPS for them if desired

  • Providing you with tips and hints ahead of time on things to pack, helping you prepare for this epic adventure

  • Arranging accommodations so all you have to do is call and book a room (single or double), some locations this won’t be necessary (hunt camps for example will be pre-booked for the # of riders)

  • A guide and a sweep for the entire journey to help ensure the group stays together and doesn’t get lost. The guide will know about bypasses and can make decisions on the fly to keep the group moving

  • Ensuring our routes have sufficient rest stops for gas and food, as well as having alternates arranged

  • Guides will have tools to do trail-side repairs for most common small problems (punctured tires, basic fixes)

  • Optional real-time communication using headsets (we use Cardo Packtalk DMC, but can talk to Sena and others if you have one)

  • Satellite tracking for the group, we provide a link that you can share with family and friends so they can follow along from home as we complete our journey
