More than 25,000 visitors and 7500 motorcyclists enjoyed the 19th Annual Rocky Point Rally in Puerto Peñasco from Nov. 7th – 10th, reaffirming this as one of the most important Biker fiestas in northwestern Mexico.
The roar of engines, adrenaline, and leather jackets could be heard and felt across the city, particularly along the traditional points of Calle 13 and the Malecón, as well as the Mirador and other spots around town, as thousands of motorcyclists were entertained at several venues touting rock bands.
This year’s event also featured the traditional Saturday Bike Parade, on Nov. 9th, which included the participation of hundreds of motorcycles rolling along main streets where thousands of local families awaited to wave them by. This year also included the local “Charity Poker Run” and Saturday Bike Show, including a “Queen of the Streets” Ladies’ bike show.
It’s worth noting proceeds from Rally Registration, as well as from the Poker Run and Bike Shows, are distributed among local charitable organizations in Puerto Peñasco and Sonoyta. Along with donations to the Puerto Peñasco and Sonoyta DIF organizations, Red Cross, Fire Department, CAM La Montaña school for children with special needs, the local chapter of the George Papanicolaou Cancer Awareness and Prevention group, the José Dávalos “Casa Hogar” home for the elderly, and the Peñasco student home in Mexicali (through DIF), this year an additional donation will go towards the local Dialysis Clinic.
According to information from the Puerto Peñasco municipal police, which conducted safety operations during the event in coordination with other agencies, there were no fatalities stemming from the 19th Annual Rocky Point Rally, therefore underscoring the city’s safety.
Thank you again to all who choose Puerto Peñasco as a preferred destination. Save the date as the 20th Anniversary of the Rocky Point Rally will be Nov. 11 – 15, 2020!
