Ride the 2014 No Polio! Rally

September 5 and 6
Folsom and Roseville, CA
(Sacramento area)

 

Come join us at the fifth annual NoPolio! Rally, an 8-hour self-paced fun ride through the western Sierra Nevada.

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 grand prize (TBD). At the Friday BBQ we will also raffle off other prizes (TBD), with all raffle proceeds going to PolioPlus.

Our headquarters is at A&S BMW Motorcycles but this is an all-brand event. Everybody is welcome.

This year, the NoPolio! event is being run in conjuction with the Cal24, the premiere West Coast 24-hour endurance challenge. See the announcement posting about that event at Cal24.com.


 

Event Schedule (times subject to change)

Friday BBQ at 5:00 PM in Folsom. Raffle tickets will be available for extra fund-raising and extra prizes.

Saturday ride starting in Roseville at A&S BMW Motorcycles.

  • Rider meeting at 8:30 AM, leave when you want
  • Return to A&S Cycles for scoring by 5:00 PM or whenever you get there
  • Banquet Sunday at 1:00 PM (shared banquet with the Cal24)

The route 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.

There will be questions to answer for points. No camera is needed to get the points.

Bring a GPS and/or maps. The route instructions are pretty specific. You want maps that cover the area between Sacramento/Roseville and Yosemite National Park. A single full-state map might not have all our roads on it. The AAA "Central California" map in the "Sectional Series" map is a good choice.

As of July 9, 2014 we do not have a group rate at a hotel, but in the past we have gotten a rate at the Hampton Inn in Roseville, very close to Rally HQ:
