The Northwest Motorcycle Association is a volunteer, non-profit organization located in Washington State. We serve as your complete resource for off-road motorcycle riding in Washington State.

NMA was first formed in 1937 to bring Washington’s motorcycle clubs together. Over the years, riding areas began coming under fire and in 1973 the NMA kickstarted a new area of focus: public land access rights for the off-road motorcyclist. NMA has since been at the forefront of working to preserve and protect the rights of off-road motorcycle enthusiasts ever since.

The NMA is your organization! We gain strength in numbers so if you, your club, or your business is not a member of the NMA, please join.  If you are already a member, thanks! Each member is an ambassador. Help pass the word along to your riding buddies about the importance of the NMA.

NMA is here to preserve off-road motorcycling in Washington. We’re reaching out to dirt bikers who enjoy riding in Washington. This is Round 2 of 3 in our short series of surveys will be published soon so keep an eye on our page for an updated link! We’ll use your input improve dirt biking opportunity in Washington.

Due to COVID-19 concerns and mandated restrictions on gatherings statewide, NMA has adjusted its operations accordingly.
