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
you may not leave the state except for safety reasons. If you leave the
state you must 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
travel through specific cities. These may be named "Ride Around" or "Lap of"
rides (e.g. Ride Around Virginia; Lap of Florida). Remember you may not leave the state
except for safety reasons -- and if you do leave the state, you must re-enter it at the same point you left it.
Those additional rides are listed separately in the
There are also challenging rides within a single city's limits.
These rides are individualized for each city.
You may choose any route you wish, but prior approval by the IBA is required for an In-City ride.
All In-State certified rides also qualify for IBA Mile Eater Awards Program.

Rules for the In-State Awards Program:
The IBA In-State Awards Program recognizes several levels for completing multiple IBA certified In-State rides,
each of which occurs within a single state.
A ride that occurs in more than one state does not qualify for In-State Awards.
