Have you ever experienced Puerto Peñasco at the beginning of November?
There’s a pulsating sense of anticipation and optimism in the air, emblematic of a mini-vacation filled with the aroma of gasoline, open to all, and which often feels like the whole beach town has been reserved for fiesta.
In addition to the delicious weather and tantalizing sunsets, early November brings with it one of the largest motorcycle fiestas south of the US border. A festival filled with adrenalin, music events, motorcycles, and the best of friends from just about everywhere, not only the U.S. and Mexico but from across the globe. It’s the Rocky Point Rally, which is now in its 18th year!
Each November, the rumble of motorcycles can be heard reverberating through town, mixed with the roar of people, announcing four days of “biker” celebrations replete with rock concerts at several venues, a bike show, bike parade, charity poker run, rides, and sunset cruises, with the Malecón and Calle 13 being the most popular meet up points. A free rebellious spirit permeates Rocky Point’s main streets, which also includes taking in the wondrous beaches of the Sea of Cortez. Photos of bikes and beaches are particularly fantastic!
Blowing into town like a haboob, with an intensity spread across four days before riding back out again, the biker celebration leaves behind a whiff of tires mixed with sparks of youthful energy budding from the surface.
The Rocky Point Rally is a November celebration in town that can’t be missed, regardless if you have a bike! Yet, after you’ve experienced one Rocky Point Rally you’re sure to put buying a bike on your bucket list!
18th Rocky Point Rally Nov. 8 – 11, 2018!
