In Honor of Those Who Served;
In Service to those in Need
Thank you to the thousands of riders and community members who joined us this Memorial Day weekend 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 was one of the best ever.
With over 8,000 joining us for the FREE two-day Rally in downtown Fort Collins and nearly 3,000 bikers and passengers for the Realities Ride, 2019 was one of the best years yet, raising over $100,000 to meet the needs of local children who have experienced abuse and neglect or who are at risk.
Thanks to our sponsors Schraders and Lion Home Service, we gave away FREE Ride pins and a chance to win $500 in gas to the first 500 attendees on Saturday. And because more than 500 of you came down before 12:30, Exodus Moving & Storage and Thompson River Pediatrics donated 50 new bikes, helmets and locks to children served by Realities For Children!
There's truly something for everyone at the Realities Ride & Rally this Memorial Day Weekend!
Recognized as “The World’s Largest Poker Run” by Guinness World Records, the Realities Ride has enlisted motorcycle celebrity Josh Allison of Discovery Channel’s American Chopper to lead the ride. The beautiful scenic ride route begins at Thunder Mountain Harley-Davidson and winds through Northern Colorado with music at each of the five Ride Stops and a best hand prize of $1,500.
