REALLY! SNOW BIKING IN WAWA?
Ever wonder if there is a deep powder snow bike haven in Ontario Canada? Well there is and we got it! The Boondocking for Snow Bikes in Wawa is rich with deep snow, hill climbs, rock ledge jumps and snow drifts the size of small cliffs. With over a 5000 plus acres of land permitted for snow bikes, who wants to see a trail! All 4 days we will lead you into top secret Boondocking locations that will have fresh lines all day long. Some days we will ride right from the front door of your cabin and other days we will transit our bikes to remote locations 10 to 60 minutes away from the cabins. Plenty of space on the support vehicle to pack extra fuel and food for your tip each day. Every morning hot soup and light snacks will be provided.

HOW THE TOURS WORK
Tours last roughly 5 to 6 hours each day. Every morning at 9:00am we will meet at Jones Powersports to pick up the renters Snowbikes and purchase any last minute items you may want. We then head out to one of our many "Top Secret Boondocking Locations" where our expert tour guides will lead you to the most ideal conditions.
We will unload the bikes and go over a quick briefing of the days ride and terrain. We will use Garmin GPS to navigate our way around. If you do not own a GPS you can rent one from Rally Connex durring your registration process. As a group we will travel to key locations and drop a "return to" waypoint. After that you have the freedom to go where you please within a specified distance and time period. Once the entire group returns to the dropped waypoint we will again move on to another section of the forest to continue tearing up some pow!
Times out will greatly depend on weather conditions. The Wawa area can get very cold at times and have vicious winter storms. This normally has never stopped us from heading out so please don't be that one person that wasn't prepared for the winter conditions.
A small lunch is provided with your entry fee which includes a soup, snacks and water. We kindly ask that you bring your own thermos to transport your daily soup in. Think about keeping your water from freezing as well. Bikes will be returned every day to Jones Powersports for servicing and re-fueling for the next day. Shuttle will drop you off back at the Wawa Motor Inn and apree beverages can be enjoyed. There will be no consumption of alcohol at any time while out on tour.
