"I'm very pleased with this dualsport rally. I met some new friends, took some great rides and really enjoyed the presentations."

Ride hundreds of miles of scenic roads and discover the places that can't be reached without riding off pavement.

Because of this, our suggested rides change from year to year. It's not possible to ride all the great roads here in a single rally, so we mix it up year-to-year. All attendees get free ride maps complete with turn-by-turn directions and riding skills tips. Optional MapSource GPS files are available for download once you arrive. Did you know? Each year we add new routes. We'll have several new one's this coming year. In November 2011 Sound RIDER! won the AMA Road Event Promoter of the year award during it's celebration of Champions awards event in Las Vegas. The Dualsport Northwest Rally has been a Columbia River Gorge staple event since 2005.
