NAVEGACIÓN

BAZA 500 Raid is an incursion into a perfect territory for off roading, a region called Comarca de Baza, in which we will explore more than 500 km of tracks using 2 orientation systems: GPS and ROADBOOK.

We will explore a territory of great contrasts that combines in the same environment two lush natural parks, the main desert in Europe and the largest volume of dammed water in the south of the peninsula, where in a short period of time we will go from the Mediterranean forest to the steppe.

BIVOUAC

The Bivouac will be located in the municipal campsite of FREILA (Granada), LA CABAÑUELA. A bivouac area will be set up for camping during the weekend, an exposition area for companies in the sector, motorhome parking, health station, catering área, briefing tent, etc.

The campsite is located in the Altiplano of Granada, a unique territory that brings together a mosaic of overflowing landscapes, from spectacular badlands to crystalline water reservoirs, lush forests, green meadows and beautiful ramblas.

Located on the banks of the Negratín Reservoir, it provides us with a perfect base to approach the entire proposed territory and is far from urban centers.

ROUTE AND STAGE DETAILS

As its name indicates, RAID is an incursion into a territory, it is not a RALLY, and therefore our objective is to explore an area of exceptional and unique beauty, enjoying the navigation, the landscape and riding our motorbikes, without racing against the clock.

There will be a speed limitation, and failing to respect it repeatingly will lead to expulsion from the event.

BAZA 500 Raid will be structured in 3 stages that start and end in the Bivouac:

  • The prologue stage is 25 km long. This small section will help you to get used to the navigation APP we will use.

  • Stage 1 has a 20 km liaison and a total length of approximately 300 km in ROADBOOK and GPS category and 360 km in ROADBOOK PRO category.

  • Stage 2 has an approximate length of 200 km for the 3 categories.

 

The tracks of other riders have many different sections that are exclusive to each category, and therefore, you should not trust the tracks of other motorcycles. Stop, reflect and deduce what is happening and what the error is, it is the best way to learn to navigate. If you follow the tracks and they don't belong to your category, you will have a hard time finding the path again.

In the GPS category you will have warnings for TRIPLE DANGERS (maximum on the scale from 1 to 3), speed limitation zones (DZ - FZ) and the ECLIPSE waypoints (which you will have to search for and validate).

Everything will be explained in a tutorial with text, images and video, with real demonstrations on the track.

BRIEFINGS

Every night, after dinner, and prior to the routes on Saturday and Sunday, briefings will be given (in Spanish and English), in which all the details of each route will be explained in detail and all questions will be answered.

CATEGORIES

- ROADBOOK: You will use FIM spec roadbooks that will include all the elements of a FIM RALLY. You will have to validate waypoints, respect zones with speed limits, masked waypoints, etc. You are going to live a unique experience as an amateur, without racing against the clock, but having fun like never before on your motorcycle.

- ROADBOOK PRO: You will have an additional TRACK BONUS with some technical navigation complications.

- GPS: We are going to put a lot of emphasis on providing basic information about the route in terms of technical difficulties or obstacles, and to do this you will have to consult the waypoints in advance at each start of the route. To do this, we will provide a printed chart to help you with identification. You will also have acoustic warnings from the TRIPLE DANGER waypoints, to improve your safety on the track, and from speed control zones in inhabited areas.

NO SATELLITE SYSTEM type Stella or similar WILL BE NECESSARY, and you can choose, as always, paper or digital format.

 

WE WILL PREPARE A SMALL TUTORIAL EXPLAINING WITH TEXT AND VIDEO HOW THE APP WORKS.

Each participant will carry a tracking device in stages 1 and 2, which gives the organization the real-time situation, speed and track taken.

PHILOSOPHY

BAZA 500 RAID is a NON-COMPETITIVE orientation route. There is no classification by time, for that you must look for federation or amateur rallies. Therefore, we ask for the utmost respect to the rest of the participants who come to enjoy a tour specially designed to enjoy nature, navigation and off roading. If you do not agree with this concept, you can request your reimbursement before the indicated period.

Many times we do not think about others because we are very focused on riding our motorcycles and we are enjoying it to the fullest, but there are other people in the outdoors and a sensitive environment that will always be affected by our passage, so we must try to minimize it as much as possible. that effect. When you find houses, cross urban centers or areas where there are people walking, reduce your speed and disturb as little as possible, avoiding skidding, acceleration or wheelies.

There is no rush, there are federated events to RACE AND COMPETE. Our concept for the design of the routes is to enjoy riding your motorcycle to the fullest, to offer ROADBOOKS in which you can train to compete in ANY RALLY (Dakar, Hellas, etc.) and different and fun TRACKS and enjoy exceptional places .

Think that the future of off-road motorcycles is in our hands. We can feel truly privileged to be able to circulate through these natural treasures with our motorcycles, so let's try to take care of it and maintain it and, above all, ensure that we can continue organizing events like this. If there are protests from other users, the town councils and delegations will deny us passage.

 

LET'S ENJOY OUR HOBBY IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY
