In-State rides are motorcycle rides that are TOTALLY within the borders
of a single state. You may take any route you like - but remember
may not leave the State except for safety reasons - if you leave the
State you mkust re-enter the State at the same point you left it.
Any of the traditional rides (Saddlesore 1000,
Bun Burner 1500, Bun Burner Gold) can be 'in-state rides', but you must
closely follow the requirements of those specific rides.
There are many more challenging in-state rides that require you to
specific cities. These may be named "Ride Around" or Lap of"
rides (e.g. Ride Around Virginia; Lap of Florida). There are also
"Ride Around" rides and "Lap of" rides whose geographical boundaries
are larger than one state (e.g. Ride Around the Carolinas, Lap of the
South). Remember you may not leave the geographical boundaries
except for safety reasons - and if you do leave the geographical
boundaries, you must re-enter it at the same point you left it.
These rides are listed separately in the Ride
There are also challenging rides whose geographical boundaries are
within a single city's limits. These rides are individualized for each
city. You may chose any route you wish, but prior approval by the
IBA is required for these rides.
