Downtown Fort Collins, Colorado
Memorial Day Weekend | May 25-26, 2019
In Honor of Those Who Served;
In Service to those in Need
This Memorial Day Weekend, join with thousands of riders to celebrate freedom, commemorate sacrifice and bring hope to children who have been abused, neglected or who are at risk. For the past 18 years, the Realities Ride & Rally has been one of the premier biking events in Northern Colorado, featuring the World's Largest Poker Run - and this year we're taking it up a notch.
New for 2019, we've partnered with Cycle Source Magazine to add a Motorcycle Rodeo and to bring their first Ride-In Bike Show to Colorado. The Schrader Grand Prix Trike Races will return, along with stunt shows, pin-up and tattoo contests, top vendors, fireworks and a rockin' live music line-up that will feature tributes to a variety of artists from The Allman Brothers to Black Sabbath.
