Have you ever thought how cool those Iron Butt type rallies are?
Rallies where the goal is not to rack up lots of miles but to acquire the highest number of points. Of course, they get those points by going to places, which are often on opposite sides of the country. Truly an event for iron men on iron mounts. Well if your bottom is more akin to cotton candy than cast iron we have a perfect rally for you: The Park 'N Ride Rally!
Designed for the rest of us mere mortals the Park 'N Ride Rally is an easy to complete day ride to some of the most interesting places in Southern California. We'll have two classes, a Novice class where you only have to cover 100 miles and go to 3 bonus locations to be a finisher; and an Open class which is for more experienced rally riders or those who like a challenge. We've designed this rally so it won't matter if you are coming from San Diego, Bakersfield or Santa Barbara. You can start near home and won't have to travel long distance to complete the rally or be competitive. New for this year there will be a base route you can follow as well. The rally's finish is at BMW Motorcycles of Ventura County, 830 Tourmaline Drive Newbury Park CA 91320
What we've done is adapt the "acquire bonus points" goals of the long distance rally into an easy-to-complete eight-hour day ride (you'll have from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m to finish the rally, but you can certainly ride a shorter day) by setting up a series of bonus locations local to Southern California. No special equipment is needed and any street legal bike or scooter will do just fine.
