Trail rider information: This IS Ontario's premiere ride event, and draws riders from Ontario, Quebec, and the Northeastern U.S., attracted by some of the best riding terrain in Ontario.The ride is suitable for intermediate to expert riders, not suitable for children, beginner or novice riders. Small wheeled motorcycles will have difficulty. Riders under 16 years of age need to be strong riders. Most trails will be single track, although dirt road and atv tracks may be used as connectors. Calabogie can be a challenging ride area. There will be a main loop, with various optional routes marked for difficulty ranging from Level 3 (intermediate) to Level 5 (experts only). See "what level am I". Maps will indicate optional early return routes. We will be riding on the "north side" on Sunday this year.

As many of you may be aware, there are land owner use permission issues in the Calabogie area, and we are working hard to ensure riding for all in the future. Part of our commitment is to "tread light" by limiting the number of riders at the Boogie. We would sincerely appreciate if you would respect our efforts to keep the Boogie going in future years and the area open for riding - do not show up if you have not registered for the ride.
To be amongst the first to be notified of next year's Boogie, please leave us your name and email address below, thank you.
