2014 Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders Rendezvous - July 27-Aug 3



At the heart of every adventure rider is the same passion that our forefathers lived as they explored west of the Mississippi, over two hundred years ago as Mountain Men. There were streams to cross and mountain passes to be conquered. Around every corner there was a scene that would take their breath away. These free-spirited souls thrived on solitude, but once a year, they knew they needed to return to a location where like-minded adventurers would gather for supplies and celebration and socialization. This event was “The Rendezvous”.

Motorcycle adventure riders are a similar breed. We love our freedom to roam and explore and we cherish the free-spirit we can live on two wheels. It is this passion that motivates Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders to host a gathering, our flagship event. Once a year in the south-west corner of Colorado, in the San Juan Mountains, RMAR riders gather for camaraderie, celebration and phenomenal riding.

The RMAR RDV is set in a location where there are hundreds of miles of the greatest mountain pavement in the nation, as well as Forest Service and BLM roads that are perfect for a VStrom Adventurer.


Location: Silverton, Colorado
Dates: July 27 - August 3rd, 2014
Cost: $60
Registration: Open Feb 1 - June 30, 2014 only. Registration ends Jun 30. No late or on site registration this year!
Base camp: Red Mountain Motel, Cabins, Tent and RV Park 664 Greene Street Silverton, CO 81433, (970) 387-5512
Lodging: Not included in your RMAR Donation / Registration. Make your own arrangements or reservation at basecamp, or at another place in town. There are several places in town. Check out the Silverton Chamber website, under "Lodging".
Fundraising: This event will support the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition, San Juan County Trails and San Juan Trail Riders.
Meals[/COLOR][COLOR=yellow]: Meal Voucher Cards to be used at Silverton Restaurants. Unlike years past, there will be no meals cooked at basecamp. Instead, part of your $60 donation will be turned back to you in the form of vouchers. We'll buy these vouchers back from the restaurants where you spend them. We're making this change to better impact this local community. Additional vouchers will also be available for purchase to help show this community our actual impact.

Can someone tell me a little more about the meal vouchers? One of my weak links to motorcycle camping is meals--what do you get with those vouchers--how many do you get and what else will be needed to eat well?
I looked at the website and it said less about the vouchers than this thread.
I have seen this region many years ago and I am sure it will be fantastic on a motorcycle.
I wonder about other tourists with motorhomes, etc that may clog the roads of that region.

If I remember correctly, I think you simply get "bucks" totaling a certain amount....either $20 or $25....that you can use in town at any of the restaurants or cafe's.

We now have two Rendezvous Events in Colorado. Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders - Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders


Silverton Colorado
July 24-27 is our Rendezvous in Silverton, Colorado. We recently adjusted the dates of this event, moving a week earlier so as not to conflict with the Mile High Jeep Club event in Silverton the week after. Nearly everyone knows how awesome the riding is in the Silverton area.

Meeker Colorado
July 31 - Aug 3 is our Rendezvous in Meeker, Colorado. We are keeping our original RDV date, but moving to Meeker, CO to avoid the congestion issues around Silverton at this time. Meeker is a sleeping giant for Adventure riding. The Wagon Wheel trail system offers 250 miles of dirt that is outstanding for mid-sized and large adventure bikes. The BLM out to the west will give any single track rider all they want in 100's of thousands of acres.


The Meeker event is $55 and the Silverton event is $60, but if you want to attend both, it is $95. You get a TShirt, sticker and meal vouchers to use at restaurants and bars in town.

Both of these events are fundraisers for the Colorado Off-High Vehicle Coalition, which fights legally and legislatively to keep our trails open.
