These rules apply to all U. S. In-State and Canada In-Province Ride Arounds.  The terms 'state' and 'province' are used synonymously. 


Your goal is to trace the inside borders of the state by "connecting-the-dots", riding through the required jurisdictions listed by state, without leaving the state.

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Iron Butt Association site. The rules for this ride are similar and you will get valuable background information.

Documentation:  See here.


DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time, city and state on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect date/time/city/state is worthless.  Check and re-check.


All In-State rides require the use of Spotwalla. If you are not a Spotwalla user, here's help with getting started.

You must obtain a start and end DBR.

You must start at any of the states' required jurisdictions or at any location along the inside perimeter of the state that is in a direct path between the required jurisdictions.

You must make a complete circuit of the inside perimeter of the state, crossing your starting point to finish, i.e. obtaining a DBR at your same starting and ending location.

You must "ride-through" the jurisdictions in the order as listed by state, either clockwise or counter-clock, but they must be in order as required by state.

You should not leave the state except for safety reasons and if you do so, you MUST re-enter the state at the same point you left it.  Those miles ridden outside the state are not credited toward the miles for this ride.
You may take any route you choose but remember, your goal is to trace the inside borders of the state by "connecting-the-dots" represented by the required jurisdictions by state and remember you should not leave the state except for safety reasons and the required jurisdictions must be visited in order.

Your official time is determined by the starting and ending receipts.  PLEASE check these documents and make sure the clock and date are correct!

Again,  is required  to prove you "rode-through" all required jurisdictions in the required order.


There is no additional merchandise for these ride.
