Realities for Children Charities, a 501(c)3 charitable organization providing emergency funding for abused, neglected and at-risk youth in Larimer County, hosts the 11th Annual Realities Ride & Rally in northern Colorado this Memorial Day weekend, May 26-27, 2012.
"Interested riders should register via the website, www.RealitiesRide.com, and there may be a few free t-shirts left, but not many," said Craig Secher, ride organizer and president of Realities for Children. "The event year will be better than ever, and Saturday night combines a first-rate light show, motorcycle stunts and Fort Collins' largest rooftop fireworks display."
Realities Ride Weekend is one of the area's most-anticipated community events and one of Colorado's largest charity poker runs. All Bikes and All Riders are invited to enjoy our brand new Ride Route and free Rally events, including live music all weekend long, fireworks, stunt shows, custom bike show, beer gardens, contests, big prizes and of course the 100-mile scenic ride through northern Colorado to raise money to aid the abused and neglected children of Larimer County.
The Realities Ride brings more than 10,000 motorcyclists and spectators to Old Town Fort Collins every year. Don't ride? Don't worry! Everybody is welcome to celebrate and participate, as every mile helps an abused child.
The weekend's activities include the Budweiser Beer Garden, Coyote Gold, Suicidal Lifestyles Stunt Team by Monster Energy, Biker Rodeo, food and merchandise vendors, Battle in the Fort Strong Man Competition, Webb's Colorfest Tattoo Contest, Realities Ride Pin Up Girls, Hooters Bikini Bike Wash, A Hot Rod Show, Live and Silent auctions and two stages with great musical talent all day Saturday and Sunday.
The Ride itself promises to be one of the most beautiful to date. There will be a Blackhawk flyover and four skydivers presenting the colors with the Young Marines. The 100 mile Law Tiger route begins with parade led by the Harley Owners Group, Combat Veterans and BACA riders. Traffic control from three local law enforcement agencies will enable an uninterrupted start. Each ride stop involves the entire community and benefits a specific youth agencies in that community. Lunch is sure to be a hit, featuring brisket sandwiches in beautiful Masonville. There will be live music at every stop, and with our custom Texas Holdem' Style poker, there are no card draw lines – just good times and good people!
The Budweiser After Ride closes down all of downtown for bike parking only. The festivities include a give away of $1500 cash for the best hand, a $3,500 custom paint pob from Newstalgia Custom Paint and the other prizes, including a Best Buy Flat screen and much more.
