GEICO Motorcycle Adventure Rally @ Julian CA - November 12-15, 2020


Recommended Posts

he GEICO Motorcycle Adventure Rally & Camp returns to the Stagecoach Trails Resort in Julian, Calif., for the second So-Cal Adventure Rally, November 12-15. Building on the success of past Adventure Rally editions, the 2020 event will feature a wide array of opportunities for riders to test their skill and diversity in a location that is teeming with discovery for adventure motorcyclists.


Registration for the 2020 GEICO Motorcycle Adventure Rally & Camp is now open and can be completed online at www.advrally.com. For participants, an Adventure Rally event ticket includes: Event T-shirt, Event Sticker, Custom ADV Rally Map, Custom ADV Rally Clue Book, Plate Sticker and a Gift Bag.


The Adventure Rally & Camp is a multi-day challenge for riders of any skill level and their bike. During the day, riders take part in self-navigated scenic trail rides and look for elusive checkpoints laid out by the Adventure Rally & Camp staff. At night, camaraderie is built among competitors, along with the staff of Cycle World, Motorcyclist, and Dirt Rider magazines as well as industry guests, often around a campfire and usually with some frosty libations.

Teams will take part in challenges on the trails as well in special tests, during the Adventure Rally & Camp. The special tests are conducted at the Stagecoach Trails Base Camp and are designed to improve riders overall adventure skills.

The Adventure Rally features nearly 100 points of interest to find in an over 100-mile radius from base camp, spread across a vast terrain of mountains, valleys and desert. As has become tradition, a variety of new exciting points of interest will be part of the event this year.


Participants can ride one, two, or all three days of the event. Top point collectors will be honored each day as well as the team that collects the most points overall for all three days.


These combinations lead to more opportunity for participants to ride, along with a variety of exciting happenings at base camp, and additional adventures. Riders of all skill levels are welcome at the GEICO Motorcycle Adventure Rally & Camp and all off-road-capable, street-legal motorcycles are welcome.


A variety of camping options will be offered again this year. From tents to RVs to on-site cabins, all are available at the Stagecoach Trails Base Camp (www.stagecoachtrails.com). For those not wanting to camp, just 12 miles up the road in Julian, Calif., plenty of lodging choices are available.


A food package is being offered again in 2020, which includes a 4-day food option with a unique menu offered each of the four days for breakfast and dinner. There will be a lunch menu available for separate purchase.

The Adventure Rally is made possible by GEICO Motorcycle and Stagecoach Trails Resort.

This is a fun event.  The camp area is nice with wind breaks for the tent campers, nice showers, a little general store.  The year I went they had a food truck style trailer with a good little menu.  Julian itself was busy as usual, don't know about now.  They'd probably appreciate our business.  The GPS checkpoint hunts encourage you to explore and are rated by difficulty if I remember right.  There's a wide variety of terrain between Julian and Anzo-Borrego, from easy pavement, mild dirt, and sand with more sand.   Knobby up if you want sand, there's lots of it in Anza-Borrego.

I have campsite 114 reserved and a fellow rider has 115.


I have 8 riders from our 2021 Alaska Trip Planning FB Chat group going to this Rally.


A bunch of ADV riders new to dirt riding on their big ADV bikes. Taking advantage of the ADV Class and some off-roading before we do our SOCAL to Alaska trip next year.

This Rally Event has been canceled by the Organizers, over COVID concerns. Refunds being issued, for those who have pre-paid for the event..


For now I'm keeping my camp site reservations. About a dozen of my ADV riding friends are going forward with organizing our own ADV rides during the same dates as the canceled rally.
