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 for 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.

A major rally sponsor is A&S BMW Motorcycles in Roseville, CA. 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 endurance challenge. This year they have 12-hour and 24-hour versions of the Cal24. See the announcement posting about that event at Cal24.com.

Costs and other details

After you register, send in your $75 rally fee made out to Bob Mutchler. This covers the rally, a T-shirt, and both banquets (Friday and Sunday). If you just want one or both banquets, the fee is $50. 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 $125 per person for the rally,. 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.

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. The AAA "Central California" map in the "Sectional Series" is a good choice.

We have a special room rate at our headquarters hotel, the Roseville Hampton Inn & Suites, of $109 per night. To book with this rate you can call 1-800-HAMPTON and give the code NPR (for No Polio Rally). Or you can visit rosevillesuites.hamptoninn.com and book the room, using the "Add special rate codes" button to enter code NPR. Rooms are limited - book early! To get this rate, you must book by 11:59 PM on August 22.
