Event Details

HUMM Appalachians is a unique 2-day, off-road motorcycle orienteering/geo-caching event in and around George Washington and Jefferson National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Test your map reading and navigation skills, find hidden secrets and enjoy the fabulous riding. The trails and roads are amazing, the scenery is breath-taking, and the people are wonderful – so gather your team and join us!

What is it?

Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness (HUMM) is an off-road, competitive, motorcycle navigation challenge for teams of 2-4 bikes. Events are 2 full-days of riding, and the most fun you can have on two wheels 😉

“The best day’s riding ever!”
“Ranks among the top ten ‘best fun’ biking experiences!”
“The best 48 hours of my life! (apologies to wife!)

Choose one of FOUR challenge classes for your team to participate!

  1. MAP SINGLES – Single-cylinder bikes navigating with a compass (no GPS);
  2. MAP MULTIS: Multi-cylinder bikes navigating with a compass (no GPS);
  3. GPS SINGLES: Single-cylinder bikes navigating with a GPS or satnav;
  4. GPS MULTIS: Multi-cylinder bikes navigating with a GPS or satnav.

Does your team have a combination of singles and multis? Choose the ONE challenge class your team will ride in and experience the unique pros and cons of each bike type.

Bikes need not be dedicated off-road specials but need to have a vague predilection for the dirt. So GS Adventure yes, Electric Glide in Blue, no. Knobbly tires a plus but by no means essential.

Each team gets the same map and a checkpoint booklet on Day 1. Each checkpoint gets its own page with a clear description of its location and a map reference. Crucially, the booklet is not a roadbook. No two teams ever take the same routes, there is no course as such. So you’re never following a string of riders down the same dusty course!
