Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any rules at The Backroad Ball?

Don't worry, there aren't many rules... We have just a few:

* No dudes (sorry guys)

* No 'tudes

* No glass 

* Wear your helmet

* No drinking and riding!

* The private home onsite is off-limits. Please be respectful to the owner's property so he'll let us party here next year.  ️

Just so everyone is aware: There may be a small number of men who will be there as volunteers to help things run smoothly, however, if all goes well you won't even notice them and they will be off-site when not performing their specific duties.

Not sure if something is cool? Just ask!

Can I be a vendor at The Backroad Ball?

The only people who don't need to purchase a ticket are volunteers & volunteering applications are now closed.

Should I bring water and food to The Backroad Ball?

It depends on your budget & preference!

There is a gas station, motel/restaurant and take-out snack bar within a 5 minute ride of the location. We will have a food truck on site with debit & credit available. Well water is available on site will be available so be sure to bring your own water bottle at the very least.

 

If you'd like to bring/cook your own food please let us know and we can try to accommodate by having some camp stoves & coolers available for you to keep your moto-packing to a minimum!

 

The weekend is a BYOB, however, we will have our sponsors Beach Chair Lager & SCOW Craft Cider on site Saturday evening providing samples to attendees as in previous years.

 

For anyone who would like a nearby restaurant option as well follow the link below to see the menu.

What if I don't want to camp at The Backroad Ball?

There are options for you!

The Timberland Motel and Pinecone Motel (the two closest) are both fully booked but there are a number of hotels in Sussex which is approximately a 15 minute ride away.


As in previous years we are hoping to have a shuttle from both The Timberland Motel & Pinecone Motel... Pinecone is confirmed & as soon we get confirmation from Timberland we will update this as well.
