2022 Hugellandschaft Adventure Ride
Info From Host–
It’s baaack! Version 7.0 of the Hugellandschaft Adventure Ride. A two-and-a-half-day big bike friendly Adventure ride amongst the Driftless area of three different States. The magic happens June 3-5, 2022. Both Sunday and Saturday tracks will be in the 180–200-mile range with an optional 80-mile track for the people who like to take off Friday and are looking for somewhere to ride that afternoon. Camping, track start, Saturday evening feast and general meetup spot is once again Palace Campground in Galena Illinois. Lots of electric sites, a few cabins and they will never run out of tent sites. The campground boasts plentiful shower capacity, clean restrooms and a swimming pool that came in quite handy during last year’s unexpected heat. You are in charge of procuring a site so make your reservations by contacting them here; Palace Camp Each track will include elevation changes, sporty pavement, maybe a water crossing or two, gravel and dirt roads. Lots of scenic opportunities and I do believe I can work in a few more miles of those awesome Iowa Level B roads. Morning coffee, Saturday evening meal, questions answered, campfire, sticker disbursement as well as any track transfer duties at site 89. Here is a link to last year’s gathering to give you an idea of what to expect; Hugellandschaft 2021 Galena has numerous lodging options nearby if you are not a camper, Google can help you out. The town of Galena has many entertainment opportunities if you are looking for something to do beyond motorcycling. Like many similar events here on ADV Rider the recipe for this gathering is much the same. This is an informal gathering of like minded enthusiasts for the sole purpose of enjoying life. You are riding at your own risk and needless to say we are all involved in a very risky hobby. That is OK, just respect the assumed danger. Do your best to be self-navigated, it is a skill that will reward you many times over. Lest you think otherwise please be aware that there is next to nothing as far as organization. You ride at your pace, go when you want, eat/drink what you want and be kind to everyone you contact. Because I had the uncomfortable conversation last year, I will warn those concerned in advance. Sorry, the Saturday evening meal will have no vegan options. The entrée is pork, the baked beans contain ground beef with bacon and take a guess what helps put the “crunch” in my signature crunchy pea salad? That’s right, bacon. The vegan crowd will have to bear that in mind. I can’t be all things to all people. I will post the tracks once I am comfortable with them which trust me, won’t be until around the week before the event. Attendance has been growing and we all make great friendships and share lasting memories. The following slideshow is yet another low budget, ill conceived farmer production of shots along the way. Thanks to all who recognize their photos and allowed me (without their knowledge) to include them. See you in June my friends!
