Duration and general riding area:
The 2nd North by Northwest Rally is a  60-hour rally starting and ending in Bend, Oregon, Sep 10-12, 2021.  The general riding area includes 11 western states – WA, OR, CA, NV, ID, UT, AZ, MT, WY, CO, NM.  There will be locations in Canada as well, depending on the border-crossing situation shortly before the rally.  Either way, there will be many routing options to suit your tastes.

General format, timing, and entry fee:
Riders will receive bonus locations and related information at the Starting Banquet, early in the evening of Sep 9.  Riding will commence early in the morning of Sep 10 and end late-afternoon on Sep 12.  The Awards Banquet will be in the evening on Sep 12.  The fee is $225 solo, +$70 for 2-up, and will cover both banquet dinners and your typical rally swag.

Hotel information:
The discount code for negotiated rates will be provided after you register for the event.  Hotel rates will increase after April 21, and therefore we recommend registering at least one week before then.  The host hotel will be the same location as the 2020 NNW Rally:
