The Pendleton Run Motorcycle Rally is a three-day romp presented by Russ Brown MC Attorneys. Formerly known as Pendleton Bike Week, this rally includes poker runs, music, a ride-in bike show, bike games, contests, races, vendors, and more. This year, the rally will take place July 20-22 at the Pendleton Round-Up Stadium & Roy Raley Park in Pendleton, Oregon.
The Summer Chute Out IV is Saturday night’s featured event. On the Pendleton Round-Up quarter mile track, attendees can catch Pro/AM flat track races and live music by Wasteland Kings. Admission to the Chute Out is $20.
There will be three rides to participate in during the rally: the Rattlesnake 400, the eXplore the Blues ADV ride, and the Til Taylor Charity Poker Run.

The Rattlesnake 400 Ride is a self-guided tour over 400 miles of scenic roads through three states. It’s not a race, but there will be a winner. Riders will receive a ride card with the route. Each rider must record their start and end times, as well as stops for fuel, on their ride card. At the end, the target time will be revealed, and the ride card that comes closest to the target time will be the winner. The winner will receive a $250 gift card and a VIP Pass for life, and registration is $30.
The first annual eXplore the Blues ride will also take place at the Pendleton Run. eXplore the Blues will be a casual ride for adventure riders through the Blue Mountains with routes put together by local riders. There will be two adventure touring loops, the Battle Mountain Route on all pavement, and the KANINE Ridge Route with a mix of surfaces. Registration for the eXplore the Blues ride is $40 before and $50 on the event day and includes a rider goody bag, maps with GPX files, and rider support.
The Til Taylor Charity Poker Run will be available Friday and Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Riders will follow a map and visit all five stops to collect stamps, then hand in their poker run sheet at the end for a live drawing. The winning hand gets a Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield M2.0 9mm, and the entry fee is $20.
While the vendor alley is free and open to the public, the Pendleton Run Pass is the best deal to experience the full rally. The pass includes camping for three nights including showers, a Summer Chute Out Flat Track ticket for Saturday night, live entertainment, an entry ticket to your choice of either the Til Taylor Poker Run or Rattle Snake 400, a Run lanyard and pin, preferred parking, bike show entry, bike game entry, and two drink tickets. The price for the Pendleton Run Pass is $60.
