Rocky Point Bike Rally Time!!
It’s time for the Rocky Point Bike Rally again! This year is the18th annual, with more than 8000 bikes expected from Mexico, the United States, and even Canada! Starting on Thursday, November 8, with activities planned through the weekend.
Every restaurant, bar and hotel is ready for the crowds, with food and drink specials. The weather is cooperating at a perfect 80 degrees. Vendors and stores have polished up all those collectibles that we all love to bring home. Who doesn’t look great in a sombrero? Another of my favorite purchases are the beautifully carved wooden animals. Especially handy are the ones that are a wine stopper.
The Kick Off Bike Night Party at Banditos features music from the Black Moods at 7. Followed by Christopher Stone at 9pm, then The Summer at 12:30.
The Charity poker run is a popular part of the weekend. Cards are $10 and the cards must be turned in on Friday at Playa Bonita from 5-6 pm.
Part of the registration fee, which is a donation to charities, also goes to a Pirate Boat Cruise at noon on Friday.
Another great event on Friday is the desert ride to Pinacate Visitors Center at 9:30am. The Visitors Center is beautifully done and well worth the trip. Then after the ride, you can go to Islas Del Mar for their Taco Fest from 11-3.
Manny’s on Friday features 50 Shades of Rock at 1pm and then at 4 Natalie and the Sweet Talkers takes the stage!
