Visit a park free during National Parks Week

National Parks Week starts April 16th
During National Parks Week – which begins Saturday and runs through April 24 – every U.S. National Park is offering free admission!

The American Motorcyclist Association knows that our National Parks are a very popular street-riding destination for our members and other motorcyclists, and we wanted to be sure you are aware of this great opportunity.

Several other fee-free days are scheduled in 2016 for the National Park Service and other federal agencies, including lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management that allow off-highway vehicles in designated areas. These days provide a great chance to explore public lands all over the country and we encourage our members to make the most of them!

Fee-free days:

  • U.S. Forest Service: June 11, Sept. 24, Nov. 11
  • National Park Service: Aug. 25-28, Sept. 24, Nov. 11
  • Bureau of Land Management: Sept. 24, Nov. 11
  • U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service: Sept. 24, Oct. 9, Nov. 11-13

Every April, the AMA celebrates the riding season as AMA Go Ride! Month. This is our reminder (as if you needed one) that motorcycling is the best way to go to work, go to town, go to the country or — in other words — go see America.

How will you participate in AMA Go Ride! Month? There are several opportunities for a chance to win, including sharing photos on social media, engaging with the AMA in various ways or simply entering a drawing. Details are announced each week in a press release and shared at both and on Twitter @ama_riding.

Now more than ever, it is crucial that you and your riding friends become members of the AMA to help protect our riding freedoms. More members mean more clout against the opponents of motorcycling. That support will help fight for your rights – on the road, trail and racetrack and in the halls of government. If you are a motorcycle rider, join the AMA at
