Dualsport Plus Presents the Eastern Ontario Adventure Rally returning to Elmhirst’s Resort for 2019! Mark your calendars for May 24 – 26 for a weekend of great riding, food and fun with new and old friends!
Check out all the details on Rally Connex or read below.
The Eastern Ontario Adventure Rally (EOAR) is back again – and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome all types of motorcycles. The rally has 3 different types of routes; all pavement, gravel – pavement mix, or an off road route. Elmhirst’s Resort is the home base for the weekend, with excellent accommodations, facilities, food, and activities. There will be a BBQ and bonfire on Saturday evening so that we can all share stories of the day’s events.
Friday May 24 Check in (3:00 pm) to your comfortable cottage for two nights. Each cottage has three bedrooms (one with twin beds, two with queen beds), fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with fireplace, four piece bathroom, outdoor deck with gas BBQ. All are located directly on the waterfront with deck furniture and a private dock. Ideal for four singles or two couples per cottage.
A meal plan is available to purchase through Elmhirst’s Resort. If you choose not be part of the meal plan there are two restaurants (one pub style with Patio, one upscale – both featuring Black Angus beef raised on the resort property) that are open for Friday evening meals at the participants’ expense, or your cottage is fully equipped to prepare your own meals. An evening briefing in the meeting hall will be held at 8:00pm – Routes and options will be discussed, and GPSs will be loaded.
If a cottage is not in your budget, campsites for both tents and trailers are available though Elmhirst’s Resort.
Saturday May 25 For those on the meal plan, morning buffet breakfast will be held in the same room as the riders meeting on Friday night, in the main building.
Then gather your buds, bike and gear and head for the end of the runway for the traditional group pictures and get ready for launch. Ride individually or in groups.
Spouses / families who attend, but do not wish to ride, have use of the resort facilities for the day. Spa appointments, horseback riding or sightseeing flights may be booked prior to arrival. On your return from the rally enjoy the resort facilities: Indoor and outdoor pools, exercise and spa facilities, completely equipped waterfront with canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, pontoon boats, tennis courts, hiking trails, horseback riding, sightseeing flights etc. or head to the outdoor patio at the Wild Blue Yonder to enjoy local draft beer.
Dinner will be held in the same area as the riders meeting as part of the Elmhirst purchased meal plan. There will be awesome BBQ, our favourite drinks, and lots of stories told around the bonfire. The music and camaraderie will last late into the night. The beverages will bring out the stories. Submit you digital pictures for the Sunday morning.
Sunday May 26 Sunday morning breakfast/ slideshow / laughfest. Join us in the main building again for a buffet breakfast, with a rider submission slideshow, followed by a wrap-up presentation and door prizes.

All reservations for accommodations are through the resort. All Friday and Saturday accommodations, Fiday Dinner Saturday breakfast, Saturday evening BBQ and Sunday morning breakfast are all available for purchase. All prices quoted by Elmhirst’s Resort are per person. All you have to choose is how deluxe you want your rooms. These are deluxe cottages, right on the lake, with multiple bedrooms, nice bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and decks.
A limited number of tent spots will be available. Reserve through the Resort.
It all depends on what you brought to the party, and how dirty you want to get it. Each route contains a lunch location and posted gas bars. You can ride individually or in groups. Each route will have a guide riding along with you. There are three routes to choose from: All Pavement, Gravel/Pavement & Off Road.
The A.P.: All Pavement route will take you on a 400km pavement route covered in twisty roads and scenic back roads with a stop at a fabulous lunch spot.
The G.P.: Gravel/Pavement route will also be about 400km of scenic gravel roads and single lane roads, with a lot of roller coaster type rural ways.
The O.R.: Off Road route is about 300km of sandy road allowances, tractor trails, twisty gravel and broken pavement.
All routes start and end at Elmhirst’s Resort, and have a lunch stop and gas bars on route. Join the discussion on Facebook, Adventure Rider, or Twitter.
