This is a Spotwalla required ride.

Photos are required.

The ride must be completed in less than 24 hours.
You must start at a listed location.  You must end the ride at the last designated point.  A photo of your DBR along with your odometer is required at the beginning and ending locations.*

You must visit the center location a minimum of three times.

*A DBR photo in front of your odometer is the preferred method of documenting your start and end, however it may not be possible to find a business or ATM at the time you are at that location. In that event take a photo of your bike in front of the location's post office, police station or municipal building. Welcome to and city limits signs are also acceptable means of proof.  Then, get a DBR at the next convenient location within 50 miles.

You should not leave West Virginia except for safety reasons or to take a required photo but if you do so, you MUST re-enter West Virginia at the same point you left it. Those miles ridden outside West Virginia are not credited toward the miles for this ride.

You may take any route you like but remember you must visit each of the listed location points and you must visit the center location in between each point for a total of at least 3 times. You must document each visit with a DBR or photo. You must use Spotwalla.
