Green Mountain Rally

Green Mountain Rally
September 14 ~ 16


The GMR is the MOV annual "big deal", attended by riders from the East Coast and Canada. Held at Camp Silver Towers in scenic Ripton, VT, the rally location is in the heart of some of the best riding in New England.

Great roads and a scenic time of year make this a must-do rally for many.

Accommodations include bunk houses or bring your tents and enjoy a hot shower. Included in admission are wonderful home cooked meals, bon fires and great riding in
  • Vermont
  • Adirondacks
  • New Hampshire

This is the premier fall rally in New England. Home cooked meals, free popcorn, and tenting is optional.


This year there will be a ride to Whitehorse Press which will be holding an open house the same weekend. So a ride from Ripton to Conway via the Kangamagus Trail, one of the best and most scenic rides on the East Coast.

From there a quick ride to the Maine Coast for a lobster would be possible.

  • Home Cooked Meals
  • Lots of Hot Water
  • Dormitory Sleeping
  • Kangamagus Highway
  • Bonfires
  • Doorprizes
  • Free Barbeque Lunch in New Hampshire
Pre-registration only to first 250 by August 31. Send check or money order made out to BMW MOV to:

Vermont - 'Moab of the East'

With 9,000 miles of mostly rural roads and hundreds of miles of off-road trails, Vermont is rapidly gaining attention as a mountain biking destination. (Just think of the GS experiences) Recent major articles in the New York Times and Men's Journal touted Vermont as a mountain biking mecca. From leisurely municipal biking trails to peaceful back roads to hard-core off road terrain it may not be long before you hear Moab referred to as 'the Vermont of the West.'

What is a Moab?

What a rally site Moab would be!
