Register for Overland Area camping

Invite ALL your buddies to join you in the Overland Area. What you put in your dedicated 25'x50' space is up to you - bikes, overlanding vehicles, tents, trailers - the possibilities are endless. This area is bound to be noisier, rowdier and more fun than should be allowed in public, so join us at the bonfire pit. Space is limited, so register quickly!

Rider Training at the Rally

We're still hammering down the details, but there will be on- and off-road training at the Bend Rally. Stay tuned!
