How does it work?
Base Camp is in Gunnison, Colorado, at the Inn at Tomichi Village and features full services, including lodging, meals, a bar, and area for "special tests," which includes riding and other useful adventure skill activities.

Base Camp participants use a custom Butler Map that outlines green (easy/paved), blue (moderate/dirt road), and black (difficult/two & single-track) points that you and your teammate(s) navigate to and record via custom event hashtags on Instagram. Don’t use social media? No worries. We will get you all set up.

Additional navigational aid is found in the event’s custom clue book created by Dakar Rally veteran and Doubletake Mirror inventor, Ned Suesse. This in-depth guide gives specific clues to look for, sample images, point values, and the history on some of the very special points awaiting your discovery.

Come evening all riders check in at Base to enjoy great dining and socializing. This includes special presentations from the event staff and special guests, stories from the day’s ride, and strategizing for the day to come.
