The Pine Barrens 300 Hard Adventure is a Two Day, GPS guided tour of the Pinelands National Reserve for adventure style motorcycles. The course will consist of sand and gravel dirt roads in the state forests including challenging trails and single track.
It is not a Race!

The idea behind this year's event is to challenge the riders with the best sections from recent ECEA enduros, and present a course that will allow the adventure riders access to areas and terrain that are usually off limits, under controlled conditions to make a safe, fun, but challenging course. There will also be bypasses and bailout points if a rider wishes to avoid or shorten the sections.
Due to DEP regulations, these sections consist mostly of "Firecuts" narrow single track trenches that weave thru the forest, and are used as fire breaks. They are as close to single track trail as we can get, and also make great paths for motorcycles. However the nature of these "Firecuts" makes them difficult for the larger adventure machines, like the GS 1200 to safely navigate them. There will be sections where the trees are close together, also known as "Tight Sections". Other sections will have deep sand and "Whoops". We're just letting you know what you're in for!
For fire cut sections, single file riding may cause some riders to be held up by larger machines or "pushed" by smaller ones while in a section and also makes passing difficult. This takes away from the experience and can be frustrating or intimidating to some riders. Please watch your spacing and allow for faster smaller bikes to pass or start a section before you if you are slower. Use respectful trail etiquette. We will ask all riders to be considerate and mindful of who is in front of and behind them at all times, especially in the enduro sections.
The machines allowed to enter the event must be street legal from the manufacturer, and have DOT Knobby Tires, USFS approved exhaust and a sound level below 95 DB. Riders must be over 18 years of age and have a valid driver's license and liability insurance. No Two strokes or trail bikes will be allowed to enter. No Helmet Cams or Go Pros will be allowed. And we ask for limited social media postings. Pre Entry only.
The PB300 entry numbers will be limited.
The cost to enter is $160 for Both days. $80 for either day as a single.
