GS Giant's Gypsy tour - Back to the BIGinning
Join us as we go back to the BIGinning - back to our roots in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania!
This is where the trail magic started, back in 2011 when seventy five people took a chance on a brand new event, showing up without knowing anyone in advance. By the end of the week, life-long friendships were formed and the GS Giants charter club was born.
So, you n00bs are wondering, "What's this all about?" How about what it's NOT about. It's not about being the best rider - no one should feel intimidated. Skill levels range from no off pavement experience to seasoned rock garden riders. This is about challenging yourself to become more comfortable getting off the beaten path with the help of fellow Giants to offer guidance, advice, or just pick you up, dust you off, and hand you a beer at the end of the day. And while we all have an affinity for dirt, our road warrior friends are also welcome and won't be disappointed with the scenic twisties that Pennsylvania has to offer
$120 per person gets you three days of primo camping, a daily catered breakfast, hearty dinners, and cold micro brews to fuel the tall tales at the end of the day. Not to mention swag and door prizes! As the Giants continue to grow, our door prize and swag offerings get better and better! In addition, we'll throw in a bunch of new best friends and the opportunity to catch up with some old ones. This is some of the best laughs that life has to offer!
Ride in on your own or hook up with one of the various Gypsy Caravans. Take an adventure detour on the way to earn points towards prizes and the coveted title of The GS Giant, 2016. Most importantly, plan to be at Camper's Paradise on Sunday, July 10th, 2015 by 3pm for check in and a BIG Backyard BBQ.
Spend Monday and Tuesday, July 11th-12th exploring the Allegheny National Forest and Cook State Forest as well as the surrounding areas. Collect some GS BS points by visiting some of the unique sites that Pennsylvania has to offer. On Wednesday, we bid our hosts goodbye as we pack up and take an adventurous route to Hamburg, New York for Das Rally, hosted by the BMW MOA. At Das Rally, you will find a custom built GS Giant track for play and practice, the GS Giant competition and events for all skill levels, training options, adventure riding seminars, and much more GS fun in addition to all that the MOA has to offer.
Located in the Allegheny National Forest, Camper's Paradise in Sigel, PA is our host location for the Gypsy Tour. Premium tent camping is included in your registration fee however RV sites and cabins are available at their standard rates.
