PNW Grand Tour

4/1/23 – 10/31/23

A motorcycle grand tour of beautiful locations throughout the Pacific Northwest.

We’re back! The first two years have been a success and we are ready to bring year 3 to life. Visit as many locations as you like from a selection in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and portions of Western Montana and Northern California.

The tour is primarily focused on getting riders out to explore some of the natural beauty found in our corner of the nation. So, do you want to take part? Please review the rules page (there are not that many of them) and if you like what you see, use the registration button at the bottom of the rules page to sign up.

A note from the first two years – read the guidelines for the rally! Ask questions if you don’t understand.

How does PNW GT work? A list of locations will be provided on this website. GPS coordinates will provide the location of an object at the location to get you as close as possible. Note – the GPS coordinates will get you very close…you need to find the object described in the listing and shown in the sample image! Ride to the object and take a picture with your bike and provided rally flag included and send the picture to the tour via e-mail when convenient. Pictures will be scored as time allows and riders can expect to receive a response letting them know their efforts were accepted. The tour plans to maintain a simple status page that can be checked for completeness.

The registration fee for 2023 will be $23. We are also asking for an optional donation that will be given to a local YMCA to help them continue community programs (disclaimer – I work for the YMCA in my home town but do not directly benefit from any donations). They do a tremendous amount of work in the community, and not one penny of our donations goes towards infrastructure or salaries – it all benefits families in need. Together we raised about $2,000 last year!

About the registration fee: our priority is to keep costs as low as possible, but it does cost a little bit to mail things and maintain a simple website.

Our goal is get you out on your bike on some of the most beautiful roads in the country! Review the tour guidelines, sign up and enjoy the ride!
