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

REBEL KITCHEN MYLK BEVERAGES

Rebel Kitchen has sent us 3 delicious flavors of their Coconut Mylk drinks - coffee, chai or chocolate - for a tasty, refreshing and nutritious treat any time of the day.

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

About Bear Creek Sportsmen

Over And Out was created for a bunch of important reasons, but one BIG one is that we wanted to open the doors to some amazing riding land, and create a special riding opportunity just for the ladies. 

Over And Out has partnered with the Bear Creek Sportsmen riding club of Hancock, NY to do just that.  Together, we're bringing you exclusive access to this amazing property with routes and guidance for every level of rider!

ABOUT BEAR CREEK SPORTSMEN

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.
