Camp Huckabuck is a Ladies Only two-wheeled campout.
Camp Huckabuck mission: Encourage & fuel the first ride or the best ride. Building female community & personal independence. Empowering & equipping riders with motorcycle & outdoor knowledge.
What the heck does Huckabuck mean?
(huk - ah – buck)
When you’re riding your bike (motorized or pedal) and you hit a piece of terrain that gets you a little out of control. "Woah I just got huckabuck through those woops!"
We’ve all been there... so why not laugh about it! The name sparked when we were first starting SurfinBerms and we were trying to come up with a ride day name, huck-a-buck was thrown around by Danika’s Dad and the crew said we have to do a “Camp Huckabuck” one day!
What does it mean by two-wheeled?
Our event core is based on riding bikes. The event has a moto track and offroad trails to ride. Ladies can also ride street/adventure bikes into the event and camp. Ladies can attend without a bike, but the event fun is mostly based on riding. You can bring your mountain bike to pedal around the pits, but there are no mountain bike designated trails (they cannot be on the moto track or offroad trails).
What type of bike do I need?
Any offroad or motocross dirt bike will be great, or ride any street bike in and camp for the weekend!
What gear do I need?
A DOT helmet must be worn at ALL TIMES on any motorcycle.
Boots, goggles, protective gear, gloves, jersey and pants are all very heavily recommended.
Hydration pack is always nice to have.
Where is the event?
The event is about 35 minutes outside of Red Deer in the beautiful Alberta country side! The facility is Xtreme Raceways in Alix Alberta. Location link here: https://goo.gl/maps/sWcMxRp5PM2JVVxe6

Do I need a ticket to enter the event?
Yes, everyone entering the event needs to have a ticket. All tickets will be on sale before the event. If tickets are sold out then we will hopefully see you at the next one. All tickets must match your legal name. If you give someone or sell your ticket, you must transfer it to their name.
I’m a pretty new rider is this event for me?
Definitely! Come out and ride! All our events are all levels always encouraged. You’ll meet lots of friends at these events that will be willing to show you around. There are also Rad 2.0 lessons available that you should book into to gain more confidence. Never ride alone!
I’m a very good rider is this event for me?
Of course! There will be all levels at this event. This isn’t a “I’m training for a race” type riding but come have fun, meet/encourage new riders and gain some more skills.
I don’t know any other riders so should I come?
That’s what these events are for, bringing ladies from all different backgrounds together. Park beside someone you don’t know, slap some high-fives, you’ll probably find a rad trail buddy!
How old do I need to be?
Friday and Saturday all individuals entering must be 18+.
Sunday is open for the whole family and all ages.
Why is Friday and Saturday 18+?
We love all ages and all levels of riders, but there is 18+ events happening on these two days so there is no underaged participants able to be on site.
I am going to camp do I need to have a weekend ticket and a parking/camp ticket?
Yes, everyone entering the event needs a weekend ticket [Weekend 18+ Ladies Only Admission + Riding Ticket] or a Sunday only ticket [Sunday Ladies + Girl Riding Admission Ticket]. If you are parking/camping you’ll need a [Weekend Camping Pass (Vehicle and Tent) Ladies Only ticket] or [Weekend Camping Pass (Vehicle and Trailer) Ladies Only ticket] in addition to your Weekend ticket. Find a friend to carpool with so you can split parking! There is limited space for parking and camping so if these are sold out, you’ll have to find a friend to jump in with.
I am only wanting to come one day can I just get a day pass?
Sunday is our only day you can just buy a single day for. We are renting out the full facility from Friday to Sunday so we will only be offering the two types on admissions. [Weekend 18+ Ladies Only Admission + Riding Ticket] come and go any day Friday to Sunday or [Sunday Ladies + Girl Riding Admission Ticket].
I am coming to the event but not camping, where should I stay?
You do not need a parking pass if you are not staying the night. There will be a separate area for riders that are only staying for the day. If you’re looking for a hotel check out the Red Deer Resort & Casino! The Red Deer Resort &Casino has a SurfinBerms group promo.
