Public Health Guidelines

While COVID-era risks to participants is minimal as of this writing, your health and safety are still important to us! For our gathering, we will follow CDC public health safety guidelines as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws.

While riding a motorcycle is by its very nature an act of social distancing, traveling and gathering in groups will always increase the risk of exposure to viruses. Before you leave home, we encourage you to…
• Get your flu shot.
• Get up-to-date with your COVID vaccines and booster shots.
• Test regularly as the most effective way to detect COVID and isolate if you are infected.
• Review current CDC general and COVID-related guidelines for travel

Our goal, as always, is to have a fun AND safe rally. If you have any questions about the rally as it pertains to public health, please contact rally co-chairs Drew Alexander at [email protected] or Jill Veverka at [email protected]

We will update this tab as needed.

Want Perks?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the BMW Riders Association, and our annual rally would not be possible without their dedication and time. We need help with all sorts of tasks—in exchange for a special perk or two, of course! We’ll add more info as it becomes available, but in the meantime you may reach out to Jill Veverka ([email protected]).
