2013 April Event Highlights

Spring has sprung and for many riders it is now...Riding Season.

Well, okay then, let's take a look on the calendar and see what's happening that might be a valid excuse for getting a ride in. For specific event dates and exact locations, visit the Sound RIDER! calendar page.

Desert 100

Always the first weekend in April, the Desert 100 is a two-day event that features several poker runs and a number of other dirt bike and dual sport events. Put on each year by the Stump Jumpers motorcycle club, this is one of the longest- running events of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. The action happens in central Washington.

Supercross at CenturyLink Field

The national supercross tour makes its way back to Seattle for another year of watching the pros ride around in circles in one of the loudest stadiums in the U.S. The thrills and spills never end. You know the drill. Pack up the rain gear, friends and family, and get down to the stadium.

NW Nitro Nationals Hill Climb

Hook the hot tub up to the trailer hitch and head to Yakima for a weekend of some of the toughest hill climb competitions west of the Mississippi. And - could you pick a better time of year to visit Yakima? Camping is available onsite, but if you want your winks, you might be better off getting a room in town because the party seems to never end at the track site.

Classic & Vintage Motorcycle Swap Meet and Show 'n Shine

Just a half hour north of the Peace Arch, you can experience one of the largest and longest-running swap meets here in the Pacific Northwest. There's more than 150 vendors on site and probably a number who would take both Canadian and U.S. dollars.

Beyond these, there are plenty of events going on ranging from rides and meet-ups to dealer open houses. To see everything that's in the works, visit the Sound RIDER! calendar page.
