The World’s Largest Motorcycle Poker Run!

The World’s Largest Motorcycle Poker Run!

In response to a cry for help from local children suffering abuse or neglect, thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts rallied together…. and set a new world record in the process.  

For the past 14 years Memorial Day Weekend in Fort Collins is when we show our patriotism and celebrate freedom at the Realities Ride & Rally. It’s an event unlike any other in Northern Colorado. This event showcases the Guinness World Record setting Poker Run on Sunday (thousands of motorcyclists join us on 4-city ride that raises over $100,000 for children in Northern Colorado who have been abused or neglected) and a unique outdoor music festival on Saturday and Sunday in Washington Park, downtown Fort Collins. This weekend Rally experience offers an awesome line-up of local and national bands, motorcycle stunt shows, beer gardens, Hooters bike wash, tattoo contests, biker chic fashion shows, fireworks, food trucks, quality merchandise vendors, silent auction and much much more! There is truly something for everyone at this family-friendly community event where money is raised for children right here at home who are struggling with abuse and neglect in their personal lives.

Thanks to our generous event sponsors, when you come down to the Realities Ride & Rally, 100% of the money you spend there and of all money raised that weekend will be placed directly in to our Emergency Fund, which benefits the most vulnerable children in our community – those whose voices have been silenced by abuse or neglect.


Beautifully located in downtown Fort Collins, CO our Ride & Rally is held every year over Memorial Day weekend. Thousands of riders and members of our community come together as a family of people dedicated to providing for the unmet needs of local kids who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk.

At the Realities Rally you’ll find that there is something to do for everyone!
* Free live music plays on the Thunder Mountain Harley Davidson Main Stage all weekend long (we feature an awesome set list each day of some of Colorado’s best local bands).  * Enjoy a beer in the Budweiser’s Beer Gardens. 
* Shop, learn and eat at booths and food trucks from quality local vendors, including the top Northern Colorado dealerships.  * Watch the daredevils of the motorcycle stunt show risk life and limb for your entertainment. * Check out our contest area for the annual tattoo contest or to see biker fashion and patriotic pin-up girls. * Enjoy G-rated fun in the park while supporting the thousands of Riders who ride for our cause.
