The 2018 Adventure Bike Gathering is Done!

Scott & Andrew (Dirt Chimps) had no idea if anybody was going to join us. We just put this idea out there – and a pile of great people joined us! Everybody was super friendly and contributed positively to the group vibe. When combined with the evening Gatherings, we collectively created something really unique.

Here is our event video. We regret not filming more of the lunch and evening Gatherings! To all of my friends!
