The Ramona Motorcycle Rally will return to the Ramona Fairgrounds on the weekend of October 16-17.
Held at the Ramona Outdoor Community Center, 421 Aqua Lane, the rally is the only motorcycle event of this size in San Diego County, said Ramona Chamber of Commerce event president Paul Zawilenski.
This year’s rally will feature the fifth annual bike show on October 17, where custom motorcycles will compete for unique trophies and prizes.
More than 25 vendors, including craft beer and wine vendors, will be installed in addition to the food trucks.
A full line-up of bands will perform over the weekend. Mini-bike show races will take place in the rodeo arena on October 16 before the groups play.
Main sponsor Indian Motorcycle of San Diego will have a factory demo truck available for test drives on October 17. A dynamometer truck will also be on site that day to test its power.
For cyclists from outside the region, there will be attractive backcountry routes to explore. The county is the gateway to miles of quaint motorcycles with Ramona centrally located.
Proceeds from the event sponsored by the Ramona Chamber of Commerce will go towards scholarships and educational programs.
Doors open at 10 a.m. on both days. Admission is $ 10 per day or $ 15 for a weekend pass.
