Food and Snacks at Over And Out

Ok so this is probably the most important topic for attendees: what is there to eat?! Get to know more about the food and snack options at Over And Out! 

SATURDAY LUNCH: LOCALLY SOURCED, ORGANIC LUNCHES - THANKS TO REV'IT! 

Our amazing sponsor REV'IT! knows how crucial it is to take an adventure break with good food and good friends, so all ticket holders have a free boxed lunch thanks to REV'IT! 

Our lunches are being created by local chef Chef Deanna D'angelo, the only chef in the area that locally sources 95% of all her ingredients.

Chef Deanna sources most of her ingredients from a thirteen mile radius from her kitchen to insure you get only the highest quality ingredients New York has to offer. Organic food grown, raised or crafted closer to home is more nutritionally dense, and it sure tastes better too! 

At the time of ticket purchase you would have selected an organic chicken sandwich vs a non-dairy mozzarella sandwich. Lunches come with assorted beverages and a side snack. Boxes lunches will be delivered on-site around noon on Saturday 6/23. Riders can take their lunch break between rides, whenever they choose! 

FOOD ON-SITE - SALES SUPPORTING LOCAL STUDENTS!

We'll have on-site food for purchase on Saturday and Sunday, with all proceeds directly benefiting the Hancock Central School's travel abroad program. Make sure you bring CASH to support the kids who live right here in the town of Hancock.

Food service is being run by Bear Creek Sportsmen club member, teacher AND race mom Danielle Gross! The trail network at BCS is literally the backyard training grounds for her racing family. Her integration with the club, the sport and the community is incredible, so please help us support their cause! It's easy: all you have to do is EAT! :D

BOUNCE WILL KEEP US ROLLING!

Bounce energy balls are healthy, delicious, all natural, and perfect for a quick nourishing bite or for packing to take along for the ride. 

I always ride with one stowed away in my hydration pack in case my energy gets zapped out on the trail.  @bounce_uk

 

We will not have food service on-site on Friday evening, so please pick up and bring foods, drinks and snacks on your way in to the event. There are several easy places to stop right in the Town of Hancock:

BH&BR and MotorGrrrl are Bringing the Party!

If you think the fun stops after a day full of riding, think again because the ladies of NYC are bringing the party treats!  Come Saturday night the bonfire will be blazing and the ladies of Breaking Hearts & Burning Rubber will be busting out essential campout party treats while MotorGrrl of Brooklyn breaks out the brews!

We're proud to have these ladies, female owners of NYC area motorcycle brands and businesses, come out in support of the ladies attending Over And Out! 

IMG_0777.jpg

Leslie, the owner of BH&BR, has created a brand that first started out with her beautiful, made-to-order boots, like some of our favorites in the ready-to-wear collection: the Nevada, Montana and the Vermont!  

And, AHEM, one lucky raffle winner will win a pair of boots from this collection!

Since then BH&BR has launched leather jackets, gloves, bags and more, changing the game in women's riding gear by producing products that adventurous women have been waiting for.  BH&BR recently collaborated with Vibram to create their own unique sole for their boots, soles that stand up to motorcycle riding and a life of action and adventure.

Meanwhile, Val from MotorGrrl will be rolling in with some brews to keep the party bubbling after a long day of riding is done.

Guided Dual Sport Rides with Victoria Zandonella

Victoria Zandonella, Northeast Dualsport Riders

Yamaha XT250, BMW F650gs, Zongshen RX3, Suzuki Gladius. 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RIDING? 

40+ years! I started riding dirt when I was 10 years old and off-road riding always remained my foremost passion. I dabbled in enduro racing in my youth, and got my first road bike at age 16.

Berkshire Blast.jpeg

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR RIDING EXPERIENCE...

From a street-riding perspective my two-wheeled travels include all of the Northeast and Canadian maritimes and Mid-Atlantic as well as much of the mountainous western states.  

From the dirt side I’ve ridden all of New England extensively. PA & NY is my regular Dual Sport playground!

Passo Gavia.jpg

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN GUIDING OFF-ROAD RIDES, AND WHAT OTHER EVENTS HAVE YOU GUIDED?   

I’ve organized and led many road tours over the years, both on-road and off-road.  I started Northeast Dualsport Riders in 2013. I have led over 100 rides with NDR. Currently I am hosting the Mid-Atlantic Back Country Discovery Route (MABDR) as I write this! 

2016 Dutchess County Run.jpeg

WHAT MADE YOU INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH OVER AND OUT? 

Upon hearing of the Over and Out event I was thrilled for the opportunity to join the event and assist in any way I can to promote female dirt riders in the Northeast. A female-focused event like Over And Out is something we have yet to see offered in the Northeast until now. 

Journey of the Soul.jpg

WHAT WILL THE DUAL SPORT ROUTES BE LIKE AT OVER AND OUT? 

There are a couple of options:  Riders can head out on their own using maps that will be provided on-site, or they can sign up for one of the guided rides! Here are details about each:

Self-guided Mapped Route (Easy as it gets):

This route in its entirety will cover roughly 85 miles of scenic dirt roads and blacktop, roughly 2.5 hours of riding. Ladies can grab a REV'IT! route map on-site and head out to explore on their own for however long they like. This route is friendly for big bike riders, newer riders or anyone looking for a less intense ride experience. 

Guided D/S Rides (Intermediate):

I will be leading two different guided D/S rides, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. 

This route will consist of 80 miles of intermediate level terrain, meaning it will be mostly dirt and class IV (unmaintained) dirt roads. Each of these rides will take roughly 3 hours.  

VZ BBA2016.jpg

ANY FINAL WORDS OF ADVICE FOR LADIES SIGNING UP FOR A GUIDED RIDE? 

Definitely be ready to roll at ride time with a full tank of gas, and an empty bladder! We'll put everyone in an order that makes sense and will ride to the pace of the least experienced rider, making a few routine stops to do rider checks and make sure everyone is feeling good.

Event Schedule and Terrain Options at Over And Out

This post is to help you get acquainted with the variety of riding options at Over And Out!

Thanks to a long winter (and zero Spring!) we'll be prepping trails and routes for Over And Out into the coming months to ensure we have the perfect variety of terrain and that everything is safely rideable.  Read on below for descriptions of each option!

Schedule last updated on 5/22/2018

Schedule last updated on 5/22/2018

First, don't think you need to adhere to any schedule!  Aside from the mandatory riders meeting, it's completely up to you which riding activities you take part in.  Also note that the above graphic is primarily for Saturday the 23rd.  Read on below so you can plan your best day ever at Over And Out! 

Mandatory Riders Meeting: ALL riders must be present at the mandatory rider meeting Saturday morning at 8:30am in the pavilion.

1-hour Group Lessons (All levels):  Thanks to Hanover Powersports, we'll have an MSF-certified (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) coach on site with a fleet of Yamaha TTR trail bikes! These bikes are perfect for learning on, and lessons will be done on grass. We'll slate you according to level (never ridden before, novice rider, intermediate, or advanced) and assign you a TTR-110, 125 or 230 based on your height, while availability lasts. You're welcome to ride your own bike as well. *Full Sign up details & instructions posted to the events page.

Grass Tracks / Woods Loops (All Levels - on site): The grass tracks are perfect for beginners, and fun for anyone that just wants to cruise. The Woods loops range from shorter novice loops to lengthy intermediate & advanced loops.  

2-hour Advanced Guided Ride (We'll say it again: Advanced!): Advanced riders can sign up for a 2-hour guided follow-the-leader style ride. *Sign up for this is on-site only, and you'll have time in the morning to ride the other loops first.

3-hour Guided Dual Sport Rides (Intermediate): Sign up for a guided group dual-sport ride that goes off-site on local routes. Ride your own plated dual sport or adventure bike. One in the morning and one in the afternoon, each accommodating roughly 10 ladies. *Full Sign up details & instructions posted to the events page.

Mapped REV'IT! Routes (Beginner-friendly, off site): We'll be creating a mapped route that explores some of the area's most beautiful country roads and local sights.  Grab a REV'IT! route map, and head out on your own. This route has finalized at a total of roughly 85 miles, taking approximately 2.5 hours in total ride time.  

WEBIG Inc. Mini-MX Games (All Levels):  Bust out those little bikes and HAUL ASS! Have some fun and win prizes in our mini-mx games. 

After all that riding, it's time to win some awesome goodies in the raffle and chill while the BH&BR bonfire heats things up!

Also, there will be food service on site for breakfast, mid-day snacks and dinner. 

FAQs

Q: What if I have a dual sport and want to do the 3-hour guided ride, but also want to take a dirt bike lesson?  

When it comes time to sign up we'll allow you to select a preference: morning or afternoon.  If you select morning for one activity, make sure to select afternoon for the other. 

Q: I'm bringing a street-legal dual-sport bike, but also a small dirt bike. I'm pretty comfortable riding them both. What type of riding can I do?

The world is your oyster! You can sign up for a 3-hr guided dual-sport ride. You can ride your trail bike on the grass or in the woods (if you have full gear). You can take a route map and head out on your Dual Sport bike for part or all of the day. You can even take the map with you and ride it on your way out after the event! If the dirt bike is under 125cc you can also ride it in the WEBIG mini-MX games! ;)

Q: What if I don't have a bike?  

Any ticket holder can sign up for a 1-hour lesson on a Yamaha 110, 125 or 230, thanks to Hanover Powersports! (while availability lasts). This is a great way for new riders to get started, as lessons are on grass, led by an MSF-certified coach.  

Q: How advanced is the advanced ride? I'm nervous about it, wondering what it will be like. 

Some of the terrain at Hancock is known for being very challenging. Super gnarly. For example, they have one spot called "Hamburger Hill", as in it chews men up and spits 'em out haha! We will likely not be using this hill, but 'advanced' will still actually, truly mean ADVANCED!  

Sign up for this will be on-site only, and we've left time in the morning so that riders can check out other trails first and see how they're feeling!

Schedule as of 5-22-18 may be subject to minor change as route and trail prep continues..

DIRT BIKE LESSONS WITH A CERTIFIED COACH

One of the biggest missions of Over And Out is to help educate both new and current riders about a variety of bikes and terrain as well as riding techniques. These things are all crucial to riding success, but also to your enjoyment and stoke-level!

Thanks to Hanover Powersports we’ll have an MSF-certified (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) coach on site giving 1-hour lessons to groups of roughly 6 ladies at a time on their dirt-training fleet of Yamaha TTR-110’s, 125’s and 230’s.

These bikes are ideal for learning. They’re manageable in size and weight, have electric start, and are four-stroke, able to handle slower speeds with smooth and predictable power delivery, which is essential as you develop proper riding habits and muscle memory.   

If 1-hours time slots don’t completely fill up, you’ll have an opportunity to join in for a second lesson, availability permitting. This opportunity is HUGE and something riders of any level can and should take advantage of. 

Full details and sign up information will be shared in a blog post completely dedicated to the lessons. If you're on our email list you'll be the first to know, so make sure you're signed up!

Meet Our Sponsor: Babes In The Dirt!

I was beyond excited when Babes In The Dirt came on board to sponsor Over And Out, because it's like having a stamp of quality!  Creating a great event takes dedication and detailed planning, for sure, but a dirt bike riding event also takes a lot of passion and experience. There's no shortage of any of these things at a Babes In The Dirt event!

Babes in the Dirt is a ladies only off-road campout for those who want to ride trails and practice their skills. The event is great for ladies who: 

  • Have only ridden street bikes and want to see what dirt is about.

  • Have never sat on a motorcycle. We HIGHLY recommend that new riders start on a dirt bike (so bring those "bike curious" friends with you that always say "I wanna try"). This is a great learning environment.

  • Have a lot of experience as a dirt rider. We have some pro ladies coming out that you can hit the hill climbs and black diamonds with!

Bear Creek Sportsmen is an AMA sanctioned riding club that formed back in 2002 with the express purpose of preserving recreational riding land here in the Northeastern US.  Facing the dilemma of a shrinking availability of riding land, the club members banded together to preserve their own private woods and dual sport riding heaven.

Not only are they passionate about preserving this land, they’re passionate about riding. The club is made up of people who have decades of experience both in racing, competing, and running events from Enduros, to Hare Scrambles, Dual Sports and Vintage events.

This year will mark the 20th year of their infamously challenging Quarry Run Dual Sport.  It is also the very FIRST year that they will be hosting a ladies-only ride: Over And Out!

The Bear Creek property occupies over 1,000 acres of extensive and ever-expanding trails that are nothing short of amazing. While Over And Out will cater to ALL levels of riders, the property does boast some of the most challenging terrain around.

The Club has hosted ISDE Qualifiers, the first US World Enduro in 2006 and another in 2007. Their Quarry Run Dual Sport is one of the most challenging events around, bringing riders from around the country.  This past fall Graham Jarvis came to teach a private enduro clinic.

I myself have ridden through forest trails reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest, have ridden down trickling stone waterfalls, and have stopped in the middle of rocky passes to gape at bald eagles flying overhead.

TERRAIN OPTIONS FOR OVER AND OUT

For Over And Out, the site will be prepared with miles of grass tracks and fields for newer riders and for the beginner to intermediate on-site lesson groups we'll be running  - more to come on that! ;)

We’ll also mark some loops in the woods for different levels of riders. They're meant to be a challenge but nothing's better than working your way through a tough trail with your friends. Our sweeps will be riding these trails to help you out and ensure safety.

We'll also have a fully guided advanced ride on Saturday that riders can sign up for onsite. Just a heads up: "advanced" here is like really, really advanced. So if you're that kind of gnarly babe, we've got the trails for you too!

The local area offers amazing riding for partially-street equipped and heavier dual sports and adventure bikes.  We will be offering mapped routes for these bikes to ride off-site on a variety of rural terrain.

ABOUT HANCOCK, NY

The town of Hancock is known as the "Gateway to the Upper Delaware" and it sits right where the Delaware river splits into an east and west branch at the base of Point Mountain. The club has a great relationship with the town of Hancock, and serves as an asset to the community by drawing in visitors to these few public events each year.
