Deadbeat Retreat 2021

Deadbeat Retreat 2021

Ride, Camp, & Party on the Saco River.




The 2021 Retreat will take place at the Fiddlehead Campground August 27-29 2021 (13 Lovell Rd, Fryeburg, ME 04037).
The event is about riding custom motorcycles and having fun! If you're going to go camping on your motorcycle it should be on your motorcycle. Previous Retreat's consisted of mostly home built Choppers, Sportsters, Dyna's, & more. We wont have vendors, sponsors or any other bullshit. What we will have is a two day motorcycle campout on the Saco River. That's right, we'll have an entire beach to ourselves inside of the grounds. Fiddlehead Campground is located within 30 minutes of some of the best riding Maine and New Hampshire has to offer. If you're looking to get out and ride for the weekend, spend the day either floating in the river on Saturday, or exploring some of the best motorcycle roads than come out!
This is a 21+ Event.
Each $60 camping ticket, which is valid for one person will get you a camping spot for the weekend.

Here's the skinny on the weekend:

This year we'll be posted up at beach 4...which is slightly deeper in the woods than previous retreats at Fiddlehead. Bring your swim trunks, food, beer, and what ever else you may need to make a camping weekend with friends a blast!

As always there are no designated campsites. It's first come first serve, plan on camping next to and with other retreat attendees. Our reserved area consists of hard dirt and grass (off beach) and sand (on beach). Camping is allowed everywhere within our reserved retreat space, this includes the beach as well.

Plan to be self sufficient for the weekend, bring food and any other supplies you may need for two days. Also since the Retreat is a laid back "hands off" kind of event we expect all attendees to bring and make their own party! Whether it's a game, theme, or a specific way to make your site stand out we encourage you to do so.


Show up any time Friday afternoon.

Check in at the main gate and come to beach 4 where we'll be. Hit the Deadbeat tent for free beer and pizza while supplies last.


We don't have anything planned for the day Saturday....GET OUT AND RIDE! We mapped out a bunch of great options if you're looking to spend the day riding with friends.

Another option is to also swim in the Saco River, Fiddlehead offers a shuttle and tube rental (at an additional cost) if you want to float down the river with friends.

Saturday afternoon we'll have an informal ride in bike show, we'll also have our first Deadbeat Wedding, and we're currently working to secure a band for Saturday night.
