Washington accommodates all kinds of motorcycle events.
If you’re a motorcyclist visiting Washington State, you’ll find rides, runs and rallies throughout most of the summer. July and August yield the best weather, though you can expect rain any time. Regardless, the coastal, forested and mountainous scenery of Washington makes the state well worth a visit and motorcycle events give you a good excuse to do so. Whether you like off-roading, classic shows or regular rallies, Washington supplies all these motorcycle events, and more.
Wildwood Rally is a relatively new Washington motorcycle event, being only in its second year. The rally raises money for the Pacific County chapter of ABATE (A Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education). The 2010 event is from July 9 to 11, 2010 at Wildwood RV Park, ensuring plenty of room for camping. You can buy tickets in advance for $5 cheaper than at the gate, and events include biker games, food and gear vendors, and live music.
