Who has the "best" Japopy Bike?
We strive to find clean, safe, and inexpensive lodging at amazing locations. Group camaraderie is a priority, so we look for places that keep us all close together.
In an effort to keep things affordable, we provide group sleeping accommodations. Everyone will have their own bed; however, rooms, cabins, etc. will be shared.
Let us know if you are joining with a friend, and we will do our best to pair you in the same lodging space!
Jalopy motorycles break down.
Reliability Rally riders will have the support of a dedicated chase truck & trailer.
The Scooter of Shame is carried by the chase truck, and will be available as backup 2-wheeled transportation!
