CycleWorld Trek

Dscn1893_1Dscn1875This past weekend, a couple of Garminites were invited to take part in the 32nd annual CycleWorld Trek junket event.  It's a dual sport motorcycle ride that takes place in the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. There were over 90 participants in this year’s event, including motorcycle manufacturers, distributors, accessory manufacturers and adventure racers (who ride events like the Baja 1000, the Dakar Rally, etc.).  Click on the jump to learn more.
