Mt Rainier Chapter Motorcycle Rally


We are doing the same ride we ran last year, but in reverse. (Friday - Smoky Pt. HD dealership to Winthrop, then Saturday - Winthrop to Monroe)

The ride will be July 12/13th with a end point (TBD) for those who don’t want to do an over-night in Winthrop.


We will be providing free shirts for all riders (we need shirt sizes when you register on the SCTE National site), and if we have sponsorship money left over we will put that towards rooms for those who wish to stay in Winthrop Friday evening. So if you know any sponsors who would like to help us out have them register on the website!
