Rider Rights


The NMA has been preserving riding areas in Washington State since 1973. We are active in every state legislative session to protect and promote off-road motorcycling in Washington. NMA works directly with state and federal agencies on land use and management strategies. We are advisory committee members in both NOVA and RTP grant programs, which are managed by Washington Recreation and Conservation Office. We are your voice, and we are dedicated to the preservation of off-road motorcycling!

Our efforts are powered in part by the support we receive from you. Your donations and membership contribute to NMA’s strength…donate and become a member today


We’ve been working hard to keep off-road motorcycle riding open on public lands for all ages here in Washington for over 40 years. Take a look at what we’ve accomplished during just the last 11 years.
