The 2022 Bitter End will be happening on Sunday, November 6th, 2022. Mark it on your calendars and check back here for upcoming event info!
This years edition will be held November 6th. Your bike must be enduro legal as a majority of the 45 mile loop will be off road. You must have a headlight mounted, no exceptions. Ride rules will be handed out upon entrance to property in lieu of a rider's meeting. You will receive your rider sticker at sign up. No sticker, no riding. The start will be north of Morrison again this year. The start address is 18418 Spring Valley Road Morrison IL. Follow the signs from 1 mile east of Morrison on Route 30 to Lyndon Road then north 7 miles to Spring Valley Road. Sign up starts at 7:00 am the morning of the event, and last bikes out at noon. Make as many loops as you wish within the noon cut off for the same price. Entry fee is a flat $50 this year. The course is not big bike friendly, more of an untimed enduro so if you care about the looks of your 800 GS then leave it home. Navigation will be by arrows and ribbon, no GPS or route sheet needed. Lunch stand on site and primitive camping allowed. The Days Inn in Rock Falls offers nearby hotel accommodations (See map for location). We encourage printing out the following entry form and bringing it with you at sign up.
18418 Spring Valley Road
Morrison, IL 61270
The gas stop is approximately half way of our ride. It is located on Sawyer Road, Just North of Spring Valley Road. The address on the map is in close proximity to the gas stop. Use it for reference, and you will see signs showing where the stop is. It may be easier to drop the gas off prior to the start of the ride.
