For many of us, the best riding begins where the pavement ends. Whether you are a singletrack-seeking dual-sport rider or backcountry-bound adventure biker, the AMA sanctions a variety of off-road rides designed to satisfy your every dirt-riding desire.

Charity Rides

Sometimes, we ride to get away. Other times, we ride to give back to our community and to help people in need. The AMA sanctions hundreds of charity rides each year to support a variety of worthwhile causes, from medical research to veterans’ outreach to local food pantries, toy banks and more.

The AMA is dedicated to growing the number of women who participate in the sport of motorcycling and introducing them to the sense of accomplishment and enjoyment that comes from riding on two wheels. Recognizing that women have different needs with regards to bikes, gear and support, the AMA has curated a special section of resources for women who want to ride.
