2023 NBDRA Recreational Ride - Serpentine Lake

  • 7 Oct 2023
  • 8:30 AM - 7:00 PM
  • 1450 Vanier Blvd, Bathurst, New Brunswick E2A 7B7


Registration is closed


Welcome to NBDRA's fourth recreational ride going to the Serpentine Lake area. This year we have Joel Frigault, our very own NBDRA member, plan the route to be the ride of a lifetime. This ride is oriented for our more experienced adventure riders where your endurance will be tested with a run that is nearly 400km!

Come join us on August 26th for a guided Dual-Sport & Adventure ride.  All riders are required to have the proper registration & insurance to be able to ride on the road. The group will meet at the Atlantic Host located at 1450 Vanier Blvd, Bathurst, New Brunswick E2A 7B7 @ 8am. Kickstand goes up at 8:30am. The day will be filled with great opportunities to enjoy your favourite sport and help build confidence in your riding.


The ride is approximately 416km of mixed riding. There is a minimal amount of pavement that will be used to connect from trail to trail. There is also an option for gas but you must be able to complete around 140-150km between gas options.  (If your motorcycle does not have the appropriate fuel capacity, please make sure to bring additional gas.)  

Please expect an average difficulty level that will offer a varied terrain from dirt roads, trails, rocky at times and slippery in certain areas if wet.  There will also be a few more fun / challenging spots where we will make sure no one is left behind. If required, coaching & assistance will be provided. (Those are the ideal moments to improve your skills while not straying to far away from your comfort zone.)

We will ensure that all participants are well guided and will wait at all forks/intersections to ensure the group stays together.

Please note that this ride is better suited for dual-sport motorcycles. It is possible for adventure bikes but would require a high level of comfort. 

As this is a fairly long ride, there will be sections where the travel pace will be faster than usual.  Please ensure you are comfortable with this level of riding and the associated risks.


  • The ride will be fun for all with a few interesting sites to explore along the way.
  • Arrival will be opened from 7:30am to 8:30am
  • Kickstand goes up at 8:30am, late arrivals will need to catch up to the group if they wish to join.
  • Participants can bring bring their own snacks and food but must bring their own water.
  • There will be an option for food purchase at the destination "Le Serpentine" and a food stop on the way back at "Auberge des Ressources".  (To be able to purchase food at the destination, please ensure you have cash on hand.)
  • It is strongly recommended to bring tools for roadside repairs. (A flat is never something you can plan for...)
  • Your motorcycle must be well maintained and in a great running condition due to the length of this ride.
  • End time is estimated around 7:00pm
  • The event is scheduled to take place rain or shine.

This is also a great way to meet new people, make friends and find other people to go ride with.

We hope to see a lot of you there to join the fun!
