Thank You Realities Riders for Making Every Mile Help A Child!
Realities Ride & Rally Celebrates Freedom by helping children in need.
This Memorial Day Weekend thousands of Realities Riders came from all over the State and Beyond to honor Memorial day weekend and help to reach ever further into the darkness of child abuse. Even the Young Realities Riders came out to make a difference as our Innaugural Young Realities Riders Patriotic Bicycle parade was a tremendous success!
On behalf of all the children this event helps to serve, to our army of dedicated volunteers this year, to our sponsors, and to all who attended: we say a BIG 'Thank You' for making this weekend one to remember!
Final numbers are still rolling in, but we can proudly say that we welcomed over 2800 bikers, an estimated 10,000-15,000 attendees over the 2 days, and RAISED OVER $100,000 for the children we serve!

For the past 14 years, Realities Ride & Rally has been held on Memorial Day Weekend in Fort Collins, CO. This is where the 'biking' community comes together to honor all those Americans in military service who gave all, so that we may celebrate freedom. Their sacrifice is honored by enjoying the freedom of the ride - and by coming together for the common cause of bringing hope to local children who have been abused, neglected or who are at risk.
It’s an event unlike any other in Northern Colorado - and the Realities Ride has become the single largest Poker Run in the entire world (as substantiated by the Guinness Book of World Records and Elite World Records in 2013). Even more impressive is the fact that this group of thousands of 'Realities Riders' led by Combat Vets and Bikers Against Child Abuse raises over $100,000 in Emergency Funding for children in Northern Colorado who have been abused or neglected.
This Ride has grown into an amazing 2-day Community Rally, and the event invites everyone in our community- biker and non-biker alike. This festival-type of event brings together the appreciation for veterans and those who gave all for our freedom, and the desire to help children who have been silenced by abuse. Join us this Memorial Day Weekend in celebration of freedom, of our service men and women, of veterans who served our country, in thanks to those who sacrificed all, and in an overall effort to serve children who have been abused or neglected. 100% of the proceeds raised at this event go directly to the children served by Realities For Children Charities.
The Realities Ride & Rally has something for everyone!
Beautifully located in downtown Fort Collins, in the shade trees of Washington Park (corner of LaPorte Avenue and North Howes Street), the Realities Rally offers a unique 'All American' event for everyone. From free apple pie in the park (provided by Sam's Club), to youth performances, Twisted Tea FMX stunt shows, great live music on the Thunder Mountain Harley Stage and a chance to thank our vets and the Realities Riders that are helping children in need, this is a weekend you dont want to miss. Visit The Rally page to learn more!
And if you ride, make it count! All bikes and all riders are invited to be part of the World's Lagest Poker Run! The RIDE on Sunday includes a skydiving presentation of our Nation's Colors, breakfast for riders (sponsored by Sean Dougherty with Remax), and a parade route of thousands of bikers coming together to make a difference. The scenic 100 mile route features ride leaders, traffic controlled intersections, and live music at every stop! This is a ride not to miss: it offers one of the most enjoyable and safest rides of the season. To learn more visit The Ride page now.
Thanks to our Event Sponsors 100% of the money raised directly benefits abused and at-risk children.
