NOTE: We have rescheduled to Sept 23 due to the current wildfire situation.
Welcome to the signup for the 2023 Loose Screw Dual Sport. Before proceeding with the signup, please read the following:
THIS IS NOT A RACE. For those of you not familiar with the Loose Screw Screw Dual Sport, it is a self-guided, non-competitive gathering for all sizes of street legal dual sport motorcycles. You are responsible for your own extraction, or bike extraction, should something happen. We do not “sweep ride” the routes, so we encourage single riders to join up with other single riders or ride in a small group together. The “buddy system” is good practice anytime you’re in the back country!
Cost is $125.00 per entry and this will be the ONLY place where we accept entries. There will be no in-person sign-ups allowed at the event. The entry fee will include camping, snacks, dinner on Saturday night,
an event shirt, and GPS tracks and a rollchart for your chosen route. You will also be able to purchase additional shirts and dinners if required. ALL BIKES MUST BE STREET LEGAL AND INSURED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Aug 10: For sign-ups after today, shirts are no longer available.
We will be camping on Private property at approximately 4100 feet above sea level. The property is 5.7 km south of the Lac le Jeune exit off the Coquihalla on highway 97D (towards Logan Lake). Individual campfires will NOT be permitted, but we will have a community firepit if the conditions allow. There is no river or lake for swimming, but we should have some water tanks for light cleanup post-ride.
This is a one day event – September
9th 23rd, 2023. Gates will open at noon on the 8th and we are required to vacate the property by noon on the 10th.
There will be 3 routes this year. There will be a maximum of 100 riders allowed to sign up per route, with a 200 total entry cap. You will need to select your route as you sign up for the event.
The A route will be restricted to bikes 500cc or less. While there are some riders that could ride the A route on larger machines, the club has decided that we don’t want the possible extra pressure on the club’s section 16 trails that larger bikes may produce. The A route is about 90% single track and should be challenging but rideable. Not as tough as previous year’s A routes but still a challenge, mostly in the length of the route (approximately 130 KM). There is a spot about halfway along to duck out and get gas, but it is a 10 KM diversion.
The B route will be for those that don’t want the tight trails of the A route but still want a challenge. Suitable for 690 or smaller bikes, but I wouldn’t take a KLR on this route! We won’t restrict bike size on this route but 99% of adventure bikes should NOT be on this route. We are aiming for 200 KM for this route but this one is still a work in process. There will NOT be gas on this route.
The C route is for the KLR650’s and bigger, or for smaller bikes that don’t want the challenge of the A or B. Some twisty pavement, some FSR’s and some old gravel roads, and some great vistas. Route is approximately 230 KM and will have gas along the way without leaving the course.
Roll charts and GPS tracks will be emailed to registered participants the week prior to the event, for your chosen route only. An important condition of our event permit is that it limits each route to 100 participants.
You must complete an event waiver in person in order to participate in the event.
More details will follow.
