Forest City Riders M/C

An AMA and District 17 Chartered Motorcycle Club








Welcome to the Forest City Riders web page.  The Forest City Riders are a group of motorcyclists that enjoy all forms of motorcycling and are based in the Rockford, IL area.  Over the years the club has put on poker runs, trails, flat tracks, and still currently promotes Enduros, Dual Sports, and Hare Scrambles.  If you would like to get involved in a club with like minded motorcycle enthusiasts please attend a meeting, check out an event or email us for more information on the club.


Dual Sport and Enduro Update:


Looks like its a go for the Forest City Riders Blackhawk Trails Dual Sport and Bill Maxey Memorial Enduro. Sunday is calling for some snow but as of right now we expect to be running. If something changes we'll let everyone know.

NOTE: For the Dual Sport you must have lights mounted. You will not be able to start with a number plate on the front of your bike. If you try to start you will be sent back to the pits and we will give you your money back. Please help us keep this event going and put lights on, you will be on roads to connect wood sections. For the Enduro you do not need lights.


The Dual Sport is looking good and looks to be around 30 miles again.  Reminder that you need lights mounted for this event.  And yes that means a tail light too.

The enduro we've added a couple small sections of trail and we'll be using LiveLaps to score the event.  If you have a scoring tag bring it with you.  If you don't have one you can purchase one for $10 at signup.  You do not need lights for the enduro, it will be all off road again this year.  It will also be a sprint type format as we have run the past few years.

Thanks to Moose, Enduro Engineering, EVS, Fasst, G2, and Tugger for coming on as sponsors.
