Come join us at the fourth annual NoPolio! Rally, with your choice of a 9-hour rally for beginners or a more intense 12-hour rally.

This is a Ride-to-Eat banquet to raise money and awareness for PolioPlus and fighting polio worldwide. Whoever submits the biggest donation at the rally start will receive a free custom saddle from Rick Mayer Cycle. At the Friday BBQ we will also raffle off a set of MotoLights, with all raffly proceeds going to PolioPlus.

  • 9-hour rally: rider meeting at 8:30 AM, leave when you want

The ride instructions include places you can go and questions you can answer to get bonus points. Top finishers will receive plaques; others will receive certificates.

Costs and other details

After you register, you send in your $50 rally fee made out to Bob Mutchler. This covers the rally, a T-shirt, and both banquets. We also ask you to bring a separate donation of $50 or more made out directly to PolioPlus. That means your total is at least $100 per person. Of course we encourage you to bring a larger contribution to PolioPlus if you want, and we have a prize for the person who donates the most.

You are welcome to come just for the banquets (and shirt), at the same fee and minimum donation. The banquets will include a vegetarian option.

The Friday BBQ location is at Bob Mutchler's house, 622 Wales Drive, Folsom, CA 95630.

The Saturday events are all at A&S BMW Motorcycles, 1125 Orlando Ave. Roseville CA 95661. This is not a brand-specific event; all are welcome.

A camera is required for the 12-hour rally. A cell-phone camera is fine. No camera needed for the 9-hour rally.

We recommend using a GPS. If you bring maps: for the 9-hour, you need the area between Roseville and Lake Tahoe, south of I-80 and north of CA88. The right AAA map is the one called "Sierra Nevada - Lake Tahoe & Yosemite Areas" from the "California Regional Series." For the 12-hour, you need to cover the area whose corners are Sacramento, Red Bluff, Susanville, and Truckee. This means you need both "Northern California" and "Central California" from the AAA "Sectional series."

We have a group rate at the Hampton Inn very close to Rally HQ. Use group code "NPR" to get your room for $99 per night including breakfast.
