Rider Update 8

Hi everybody.  

We were hoping that we would not have any issues getting into the Rally Site (The Lodge at Big Bear) this week and the utility construction they are doing would hold off, but it seems that is not the case.  They are laying utilities and many of the roads are messed up.  

Please review the attached two section maps that shows an alternate way to get to the Village at Big Bear Lake or the Rally Site at The Lodge.  You can still come in on Rt 18 from the BB Lake Dam, but you will be detoured off of Rt 18 a couple of miles before you get to The Lodge.  
If you do come in to Big Bear Lake from the East, the easiest way to get into the back of the hotel is to:

  1. Take Rt 18 (Big Bear Blvd) West and turn left onto Bartlett (one street West of Pine Knott).  
  2. Follow Bartlett to Beaver Lane and turn Right. 
  3. Follow Beaver Lane to the back side of the hotel where the entrance is located.

As we understand it as of today, what they are doing if you come in from the West on Rt 18 is as follows:

  1. Left on Talmadge Road to Lakeview Dr where you turn right.
  2. Follow Lakeview Dr to Big Bear Blvd (Rt 18).  
  3. Uncertain if you can turn left and right onto Rt 18, but if you turn left, go to Bonanza Trail and turn Right (at the Bowling Alley).
  4. Follow Bonanza Trail for a block to Beaver Ln then turn Left.  Hotel is on the right.

We apologize for this, but there wasn’t much we could do about it.  Please be patience once you get to Big Bear.  Please make sure if you are coming with a group that you share this information with your fellow riders.

Rider Update 6

As a reminder, there is one Riding Poker Run stop left on May 27th at Loma Linda H-D. This is a very short Rider Update, but we wanted to share with you some new details on the Website.

  1. Off-mountain maps/routes. To review the various routes we have organized please go to: http://www.goldenstaterally.com/maps/.
  2. We are working a finalizing the full Rally Schedule, but in the meantime, we have a Schedule based on what we know at this time. This schedule is subject to change and we recommend you download a schedule just before the Rally starts. http://www.goldenstaterally.com/rally-details/ Scroll down to the third line that says: “Click for Schedule”.
  3. As a reminder, Pre-Registration closed this past May 15th, but our merchandise vendor called us said that we have another couple of weeks before they require their order so the on-line registration will remain open until May 30th. https://squareup.com/store/goldenstaterally/. This also means is that if you did not get or still want merchandise you still can. If it easier to order something by phone just pick up the phone and call 760- 644-2118. We can handle it from there. Remember, there will be very limited amounts of extra merchandise available to purchase on-site.

Rider Update 5

As a reminder, there are two Riding Poker Run stops left.

  • Pomona Valley H-D, May 20th
  • Loma Linda H-D on May 27th

Pomona has a big party planned so even if you aren’t playing the game, come on out
and check out what’s going on. If you have friends that haven’t registered yet, send
them on down to either Pomona or Loma Linda, we can take registrations at either
location. Remind them to bring cash or their check book as we’ll not be able to take a
CC.

In addition to the above Poker Run Stops, Golden State Rally will be at the May Ride in
San Marcos at Biggs H-D on May 20th and at West Coast Thunder on Monday May 29th.

Rider Update 3

We’re only two months away from kicking this Rally in high gear. We hope you’re getting as excited about being there as we are about getting this rally going.

A lot of riders have been posting their pictures and images of visiting all the various Dealerships involved with the Passport Game. I know several of you have finished and are getting ready for the next game. The next game starts this coming Saturday. The first Riding Poker Run stop takes place Saturday (April 15th) at Victorville Harley-Davidson in Victorville, CA. We will have a team there from 10 am to 3 pm to stamp your Poker Run hand. Please make sure you bring your Passport booklet as the Riding Poker Run Hand is in the back of the Passport. Please make sure you read the rules of the Poker Run game so that you are familiar with how the game is played.

Rider Update 2

We have a couple of great "Pre-Rally” riding games that we’re very excited to share with you. Just as soon as you receive the Passport we are working on, you can start to play the first game. The Passport goes to the printer tomorrow morning. The second game is a Riding Poker Run, but doesn’t start until April 15th. If you plan to play either or both games please make sure you become familiar with the rules. Especially the Riding Poker Run. The third game is the Walking Poker Run which takes place on Saturday June 17th during the rally in Big Bear. You will not be able to draw your Riding Poker Run hand until the game starts and only at designated dealerships on specific days.
