The Adventure Bike Gathering 2019

Join us for the 2nd annual Adventure Bike Gathering in Vernon, British Columbia.

September 3rd to 6th (Tuesday – Friday)

This event has no competitive components. We’re just a bunch of Dirt Chimps on big bikes setting out to ride a variety of dirt adventures around the local mountains.

2019 ADV Gathering Quick Notes

  • 4 Days of Riding the Best of the North Okanagan – DIRT!
  • Progressive Skill Sharing Sessions – Become a Better Rider. It’s time to “Level Up”.
  • Bring Your Spouse! Our wives are taking the week off work to have some stellar days in the Okanagan, then join the riders in the evening to all whoop-it-up together!
  • This is a FREE event. You do, however, need to sort out your accommodations and pay for your own meals. Cool?
