I am going to try to gather some resources for other riding oriented sites that might entertain you until your riding season starts. All links are legitimate sites, but enter at your own risk! I am not responsible for your wasting an entire evening listening to Long Riders Radio podcasts or surfing through other rally pictures…LOL!
There are several PNWGT riders who also participate in the Tour of Honor. This is a super fun event that is well run and can be very meaningful (it is to me!). There are several elements of PNWGT that I modeled after the Tour of Honor because of how well I believe the rally operates.
A fun challenge that could easily consume your riding time and possibly require a more robust suspension for your bike…LOL.
Many PNWGT riders are also IBA members, and a handful of them have completed the ultimate challenge of the Iron Butt Rally. It is cold, wet and windy in the pNW during the winter months and you know you need a rabbit hole to fall into…why not take a look at some of the historic IBR reports on the IBA website. I apologize in advance.
2024 is the inaugural year for this multi-day competitive rally hosted by several members of this community. Registration is open (as of December 2023) for this 2 and 4 day event out of Pasco, Washington in late August, 2024.
The TOH is moving away from one end of season ride-to-meet and instead will have regional meets organized by local state sponsors. A couple of riders from our group sponsor states for TOH and are putting this together for 2024 in Ely, Nevada in mid-July 2024. Lots of fun stuff going on over there – go take a look!
