PARK CITY ADVENTURE BIKE RIDE 2023
INFO & ITINERARY
The Ultimate Off-Road Adventure
Sept 3-7, 2023
Adventure Bike Park City 2023
Since 2016, former Dirt Rider magazine editors Ken Faught and Mark "Kato" Kariya have been working to build the world’s best high-end, adventure bike ride, and we are ready for our first-ever event. Park City 2023 — will be an ultra-exclusive motorcycle adventure in Northern Utah led by guides from Utah Enduro Adventures. Everything about this ride is special, from the world-class riding, the special activities and the support staff, all the way to the log home which has been called one of the Top 15 Log Cabins in the World.
If you are into Adventure Bike riding, Park City 2023 will be an experience that will overwhelm the senses, tantalize the imagination and provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This is an exclusive ride for twenty three, yes 23 people only. This is a high-end event, and the $6200 ($3750 for a shared room) cost should tell you something—that price, by the way, does not include a bike. We want people to ride their own street-legal adventure bikes bikes since that's where most people are comfortable, although we can help arrange bikes if necessary. We do have several rental bikes in our fleet as well that we can arrange through Utah Enduro Adventures. Park City 2023 will include incredible sightseeing, some riding t, along with photos and video of your adventure. That’s right, the award-winning Mark Kariya and Ken Faught—names you've seen in magazines like Dirt Rider, Dirt Bike, Cycle News, Australasian Dirt Bike and Racer X for over 25 years—will be shooting photos of each rider to create lasting personal memories for each participant. It’s one of the many reasons this will be the number one on- and off-road motorcycle tour in the United States and one of the top 10 dirt bike tours in the world, first time out.
“Such a talented group of people working on an amazing adventure.”

LIVING SPACE—THE MANSION
Each rider will have his (or her) own room inside this massive four-story “log cabin” which will serve as our base camp, except the few who choose to share rooms for a discount. The lodge is more like a mini resort with an indoor pool, hot tub, game room, chef’s kitchen, etc. It sits on over 10 acres and is able to sleep 60 people, but we plan on having 1/3 of that including our staff. This is a high-end adventure and all rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Oh yeah, there are also 16 restrooms!
The house is located inside a private community and features an indoor swimming pool, game room, meeting area and plenty of living space.

“I have had Mark Kariya do the Team SRT photo shoot for the past five years and he is the perfect guy! He excels at getting the perfect shot when the race is on the line. I can’t wait to see him take this new Dual-Sport Adventure to a new level. He’ll make all of the riders look like Pros!

WHY PARK CITY?
Our goal is to create an amazing experience for all, and we have worked to find the ideal balance to achieve that. Mark Kariya and Ken Faught are arguably the two most-traveled professional off-road motorcycle journalists in the world, and they, along with Travis Whitlock, did much of the scouting before choosing Park City. They have done off-road motorcycle tours in Peru, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Senegal, and Chile. Separately, they have ridden in 40 of the United States plus Australia and several countries in Europe.
"Although we love international travel, we wanted to create something that avoided the complication of needing a passport to have fun," Faught explains."Our goal is to make it simple for people to have the absolute best of the best, and we found that in Park City."
