NW Sidecar Weekend

Ural riders will be gathering on Marrowstone Island in Puget Sound in late June for a weekend at the beach. Marrowstone Island is by Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula. There are plenty of great Ural roads around including a lot of Forest Service roads. Marrowstone Island, while an island, connects by bridge to the mainland. The weekend is a low key blend of Russian machines, good companionship, and great food.

This is an annual event with Urals returning to a collection of beach cottages, the "Ecologic Place," on the south end of the Island, right on the water. There is a main lodge that we've rented for the group to use. There is seafood feast on Saturday night. Friday night, we head to the Ajax Cafe in nearby Port Hadlock.

In the past we have had as many as 25 rigs there. No need to have a Ural or even a sidecar to come. It's a great place for kids, with a great low tide beach. (Late June has some of the lowest tides of the year.)

Space is limited. We have arranged with the owners of the Beach Cottages, Steve and Allison Willing, for use of the entire place: all the cabins plus the Lodge. There are beds for 29+ people. Cots for sleeping bags are possible. Limited tent camping might be allowed, as this is outside the normal operations of “The Ecologic Place.”

Contact Please call Steve or Allison at 800-871-3077 to make your arrangements for accommodations. Their website is below.
