Wake up, take in an early presentation, then hit the road to ride the twisties that only the Gorge can dish out. Grab a bite along the way and return to the fairground for an evening of camaraderie with other like-minded sport bike enthusiasts. Do it all again the next day!

Dualsport Northwest

Go for high adventure as you ascend a peak, ride back down an alluvial fan and follow a ridge-line back to your home base at the Hood River Fairgrounds. Bike a little muddy? No problem, take advantage of our on-site bike wash, then settle in for an evening of fun entertainment with friends new and old as you bask in between two majestic Cascade peaks.
