The 2018 RAW Ride Guide has all the info you need to prepare for your tour, including gear checklists, details on our overnights and suggested training schedules. The first version is up now and we will let you know when any tbd details are updated.
For those unfamiliar with RAW, it’s a week-long camping tour. But know this: we really camp in style. All your luggage and camp gear is carried by our gear trucks. Riders are provided with three nutritious meals per day. Hot breakfasts and dinners are served in camp, and lunches are served at scenic lunch stops along the way. A deluxe hot shower truck follows us to every campsite. Plus, we will have beer generously donated by Fremont Brewing.
Due to our low number of riders, we never have long lines for anything during the week, plus we can offer much better campsite venues than most large tours!
Here are a few highlights of what you can expect on RAW:
CAMP IN COMFORT
AMAZING ROAD SUPPORT
END OF THE DAY
AND MORE. . .
- The RAW tour, limited to 250, affords the opportunity for you to meet someone who rides like you, as well as to get to know some who don’t. You won’t feel lost in a crowd and you'll make friendships that will last a lifetime. There is a reason we get over 50% returning riders every year on RAW.
We highly recommend purchasing independent trip insurance, to cover the unexpected. Travelex is one of many companies that provide travel protection plans. Read each plan carefully to determine which is best for you and make sure to purchase a plan before you register.
