    EDIT: REGISTRATION IS OPEN! Check out our websites for seminars and vendors. Big push for off-pavement riders this year. Think of it as a mini-Touratech rally, with some pavement garnishes on the gravel. We're smaller, have a great location, and have both big-bike and small dual sport friendly riding.



    Washington State BMW Riders have hosted the Cascade Country Rendezvous for the past 45 years. This year we're bringing dual sport and GS riding to front and center. It's about time we featured the riding that so many of us love!!

    (Full disclosure: BestRest Products is doing almost all the heavy lifting for off-road riding, gratis. The only fees we'll charge are listed below).

    All brands of bikes are welcome. Just because we're a Beemer club doesn't mean all brands aren't invited! Bring your Katoom, S10, Multi, Kawi, Penton, Bultaco-whatever ya got. It'll look a little bit like the rallies Touratech sponsors, but much smaller, some cool road stuff too, and, well, it's WSBMWR's traditional rally, just made dirty!


    Where: Ferry County Fairgrounds, Republic WA
    When: 19-22 July 2018
    How Much: We're gonna charge $30 for the rally which includes:
    Camping. Electricity and water at many site-no extra charge for trailers
    Morning coffee
    Afternoon refreshments
    Rally door prizes
    WSBMWR Country Store
    Friday night dinner
    Seminars
    Guided off road and road rides
    GPS files to ride on your own

    There will be an on-site beer garden featuring great local brews from Republic Brewing.
    There will be a catered Saturday dinner--that's $25 extra. Republic's a long drive for caterers!
    There will also be off-road training by Dirt Bike Safety. That's extra of course and we'll be providing a link to their website as soon as they set it up.

    As of late January, registration details are still being worked. You'll be able to sign up on the Washington State BMW Riders website. Details as they evolve will be there and on BestRest's website.

    Yes, there are commercial folks helping do this. No, they're not getting any money from your rally fee. We all just want to expand what's always been a great road riders rally to include a healthy dose of off-pavement options.

    Hey guys, REGISTRATION IS OPEN! Check out our websites for seminars and vendors. Big push for off-pavement riders this year.
