FAQs

Who can register for lessons? All ticket holders. You must have a ticket to Over And Out 2019 in order to attend and take advantage of lessons, one per person.

What if I don’t have a bike? The only sessions we’re offering loaners for are in the Intro groups. There are a very limited number of loaner bikes so act fast, and select one of the options that says “w/ Loaner Bike”. Also, check out our post about rentals from GPMX.

What if I book but can’t make it or change my mind? If you reserve a spot and then decide you cannot attend please be sure to free up the ticket so someone else may. Instructions on how to do that are here.

What about the guided dual sport rides?

Details and signup for the dual sport routes are coming next. After seeing the demand for lessons, we decided to add a second dual sport route!

Friday 1pm-5pm - This guided ride will venture out on trails into Centralia, PA where coal fires have burned underground since the 60’s, home of the Graffiti Highway.

Saturday 9am-4pm - Deluxe ride that goes through rocky trails, woods, farm roads and more, circling through the adorable historic town of Jim Thorpe and stopping for a quick lunch there!

If you have a plated bike, definitely join in one of these rides!!!

Don't forget your gear and your Positive Mental Attitude! :)
