THE BEST real dual sport rides anywhere

 NO required meetings, no work parties or politics in this club because we just ride. 


There is an average 30 to 40 riders per ride. Perfect size to be manageable and cause no resource damage or offensive cluster clumps of bikes. Riders  spread out and avoid dust clouds since following a guide, leader or other rider is NOT necessary. Yet there’s plenty places and times to get to know people, find new riding partners and great camaraderie. With all the USFS route reductions and restrictions, widespread OHV closures and riding areas destroyed by fires, knowing where to go and how to get the best time out of your riding day is more valuable now than ever before. We have scouted out and eliminated the dead ends, private property, closed routes, road blocks and clear down trees for every ride. We make gas, food stops, lodging, and all logistics work for the most fun and efficient riding day. If you want a fun time, good challenges, the best balance of roads, trails, and incredible scenery, and no work, this is it. We have the meat.


Well-known expert riders love our rides but no one has to be fast or famous to have fun. We have bypass options at hard places so almost any average rider with average trail experience can enjoy our rides. If you want lots of trails and  less roads than typical “dual sport” rides, you’ll get a full day’s ride of what you like. We ride through many interesting, out of the way, unusual places most riders seldom see. We have the best routes from south of Redding to Miami Creek trails and Mendocino Forest to Nevada. Most of this averages just 3 hours from the Bay Area.  Experience you back yard like never before with us, then drive 2 days to get to Mexico,  if you still want to.  Our unique roll charts, maps and GPS tracks are the best way to enjoy a ride at your own pace, and know where to go and where you are  It’s the most foolproof way to avoid getting lost, and those who do it, don’t want to repeat another typical stop-wait and go follow-the-leader fiasco. Time for a change?

ACT RIDES are the best way to enjoy dual sport trailriding. We have averaged 15 different rides a year for 38 straight years. Over 500 two-day rides for thousands of riders.  So we know how to give trail riders what they want, especially for today’s state of the art dual sport bikes. No one knows all the riding areas in Northern California into Nevada like we do, or how we connect so many different trails, 4x4 routes and roads to give riders the best real dual sport rides there are.  All rides are free to members and all rides are open to members only. Just sign-up and you’re in. There is no qualifying, no work or required meetings to enjoy our unique routes, camaraderie, challenges and ever changing fun in the great outdoors. ACT riders voluntarily keep trails cleared and open to keep this great adventure going and our sport alive for anyone to enjoy. You get our special GPS tracks and unique maps of original routes that took me a lifetime to develop.  We are always improving and adding more, and not by sitting at a computer or using a copied GPS track. Shortly before ride date every mile of every ride is pre-ridden so you can confidently ride thru remote places, discover new horizons, history, and amazing scenery in places you might otherwise never see. This is not for everyone, but If you want a different experience better than the riding you are doing, maybe this is the year to make a change.. Find out for yourself what you are missing and why so many people call these legendary rides.  38 straight years and still going,  Don Ivan - map maker, founder of ACT Rides,
