The intent of the Family Enduro is to help teach the sport of Enduro's to young riders and older riders who are new to off road riding. Enduro computers are not allowed, only an odometer and a watch will be needed. The spirit of the Family Enduro is to have fun and treasure the time you ride with your entire family.
The course length is between 10 to 20 miles. We will be using the timekeeping format. One of our intentions is to teach the new Enduro riders how to keep time at a traditional Enduro. The speed averages for these events are 12 to 18 miles per hour depending on the terrain and length of the sections. There is a break (reset or pause) in between each loop to allow the participants a break and to allow for the sweep riders to clear the trail.
No lights or license is needed. The gas stop is 10 miles apart, so even the smallest gas tank can make a loop with no problems.
As a typical Enduro, the checkpoints are secret. Each loop will have an emergency (tie breaker) check. Mileage markers will be posted through the loop as some riders may not have an odometer on their bike. In addition to the secret and emergency checks, we will use observation checks - part of the Enduro experience.
Class structure for the Family Enduro
- Micro 4-8, oil injected 50cc 2 stroke or 4 stroke automatic (with max wheel diameter of 10")
- Macro 4-8, 50cc 2 stroke premix chain, 80cc 4 stroke. DS80, PW80, XR80 (not all inclusive)
- Peewee 7-11, 0-65cc 2 stroke; 9-11 PW80, DS80, 80cc 4 stroke (not all inclusive)
- Premier 7-15, 0-85cc 2 stroke, big wheel 85/112, up to 150cc 4 stroke. Rider must be at least 12 years old to ride a motorcycle 86cc or larger 2 stroke and 150cc 4 stroke (not all inclusive)
- Girls 9/15, 52-112cc 2 stroke, 52-150cc 4 stroke. Rider must be at least 12 years old to ride a motorcycle 86cc or larger 2 stroke and 150cc 4 stroke (not all inclusive)
Exhibition class: Riders who want to be scored, but not interested in a trophy. If you want to ride for fun to provide support to your child or family you will be assigned to this class.
Micro and Macro will start on later rows to minimize traffic and passing on the trail.
In general, parents and support riders should ride BEHIND their child. It is easier to monitor their riding and helps the rider develop a better understanding of timekeeping and strategy if they attempt to ride the event on their own as much as possible.
Great weather made for a great ride!

A seat height of less than 32" makes this bike accessable to most riders, but more than 11" of ground clearance and long travel suspension at both ends makes it a serious trail bike as well.
