About this event

PCA/PNWR Solo-only DE

[7/28/2020] New Event Format - Please Read

Due to current restrictions on social gatherings and requirements for social distancing in place caused by COVID-19, this DE event will follow a different format than normal DE events.

  • This is a solo-only event.  You must be previously signed-off solo by the PCA/PNWR, Puget Sound BMWCCA, or ACNW club (at a prior DE event) in order to participate. We also accept solo sign-off from HOD. If you have questions regarding your eligibility for this event, please contact the CDI, Paul Blake: drivered_CDI@pnwr.org
  • You must bring your own helmet that is fully compliant with PCA helmet rules. There are no rental helmets available for this event.
  • You must bring your own water.
  • No in-car instruction is allowed.
  • No spectators allowed
  • You may need to bring your own lunch - TBD.
  • All drivers are wait-listed upon registration so we can verify driver eligibility.

And of course, with the quickly changing guidance and mandates from the national and local government levels, this event may, unfortunately, ultimately be canceled. We will only hold this event if we are able to do so in accordance with all current restrictions and in a safe and socially-responsible manner.
