March Moto Madness – March 26-29, 2015 in Tellico Plains, TV
March Moto Madness is an adventure riding celebration: the first time of the year that many riders can get out to ride, camp and hang with their buddies. The event started amongst a small group of friends, camping out in the woods. Today the event has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, with thousands of adventure riders across the US and around the world rallying simultaneously. The Tellico Plains location is good, the food is great, the riding is excellent, and the adventure track competition is over the top! Yet the best part is the friendship, old and new, that form out on the trail and around the campfire. Riders on all types of motorcycles — light and heavy, dirt, dual-sport and street — are welcome. For more information and to register, visit marchmotomadness.com
The March Moto Madness event managers and staffers, as well as many attendees are members of the GS Giants, an international adventure riding club. In 2015 March Moto Madness kicks off a year-long series of GS Giants events planned in Alabama, California, Idaho, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Montana, Tennessee and Wyoming.
