More than just a plain ol’ motorcycle rally
When you live to ride, you inherently live for the road. One of the best feelings in the world is the wind in your face and the freedom to rumble on motorcycles wherever you ride.
If you are planning on taking advantage of the spring then make plans to see the Hill Country in a whole different way – astride a motorcycle – at the Hill Country Run motorcycle rally in Luckenbach – May 6-8. The rally is sponsored by the Optimist Club of Fredericksburg.
Billed as “More than just a plain ol’ motorcycle rally,” the Hill Country Run is three days filled with hearty food, live music, new friends and miles of riding through the towns and vistas of the scenic Texas Hill Country.
Our rally is a laid-back, safe and friendly getaway with good music, nice scenery, and interesting people from all walks of life. It is a small-town event that is getting big. And even if you don’t ride come hang in Luckenbach with us.
The weekend gets an early start on Thursday, May 5th, with a social and welcome at Western Edge Cellars on Main. Guests are invited to an informal social gathering featuring music and great food, with extra surprises for attending registrants. The fun begins at 6:00 PM.
On Friday and Saturday, check-in and registration begins at 9:00 AM in Luckenbach, and participants can enjoy more live music all afternoon and evening.
On Friday, there will be a Hill Country Ride with an action-packed afternoon of Luckenbach good times and fun. On Saturday evening, the popular Brew & BBQ dinner will be back. Tickets are sold for the Brew & BBQ in advance (and still available) for $15 per person.
Hill Country Road Trip is not a competition, but more of a leisure ride in the beautiful Hill Country. The Optimist Club has planned an exciting route for Saturday’s Hill Country Road Trip; one of the stops includes Pecan Grove Store. Registered riders will pull into designated stops, where they can drop tickets in a box. At the end of the event, tickets will be drawn from each stop, with the winners receiving prizes at 7:00pm in Luckenbach.
Saturday and Sunday start with a hearty Cowboy Breakfast, included in your $60 registration fee. The hosts provide the ingredients and individual cooking stations, so early-risers can fry up their favorite breakfast of eggs and sausage, laid on warm tortillas, garnished with cheese, onions, and green peppers, and washed down with fresh, hot coffee and orange juice.
Friday’s entertainment from 1:00 – 5:00 PM Luckenbach Picker’s Circle, and that evening we’ll feature music by The East and The Crow on the outside stage from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Saturday’s afternoon Luckenbach Picker’s Circle starting at noon and closing out the evening on the outside stage under the stars will be another favorite the Drugstore Cowboys.
Booths offering motorcycle-related items and souvenirs will be on hand throughout the event. Sunday, the event closes out with a final Cowboy Breakfast.
