Registration is NOW FULL - thank you for registering early.
If you would like to be notified in advance of the general public of the registration opening for the 2018 Calabogie Boogie, leave us your contact info at the bottom of this page.
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.
