The DamTour is a self-guided tour in which motorcyclists ride to 20 different dams in the Western US and Canada. Reaching the dam is documented by taking a photograph with your bike, a numbered identification card, and the dam. If you visit all of the Washington and/or Oregon dams, there is a commemorative pin. If you visit all 20 dams, there is a crystal trophy. The event runs from March through September, which allows for lots of time to create interesting routes. Along with information on the this year’s tour, there’s a forum on the DamTour Website where riders can share tips and ride reports. Additionally, there’s a fun mid-season picnic and an end of season awards party. To sign up for the 2011 DamTour go to www.damtour.com.
