CANCELLED CANCELLED CANCELLED CANCELLED CANCELLED Hello, all. After we had some hard conversations about the current construction of the overnight accommodation spaces (basically a couple of motel rooms in the firehouse), the opening of the motopub coming up, and running the warehouse, we realized we would be unable to make this event what we want it to be for the people who come. When we moved to Pendleton, all we wanted was to get together with other riders, but we realize that doing it this July is putting 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5-pound bag, and that doesn't work out well for anyone. However, we are looking at doing a group ride that is maybe less formal in the fall and then really doing Rally in the Blues up right next year. If you are in the neighborhood of Pendleton, we invite you to stop by and say hello, have a beer in the new motopub (soft opening July 4th), and introduce yourself. But we sincerely thank all of you for your interest and we are really looking forward to meeting you folks in person. Your Pals at SRC/Motostuff/BackFire Station SRC Moto is holding our first Rally/Ride out of our new location in fabulous Pendleton, Oregon. SRC and our sister brand Motostuff have taken over the old Pendleton firehouse as our new worldwide headquarters. Additionally, the firehouse is home to our soon-to-open motopub, BackFire Station. To commemorate the move and the opening of the pub, we invite you to join us for our first ever Rally in the Blues! What: A 150-mile ride through the gorgeous Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon, live music at Pendleton's Roy Raley Park, available BBQ and beer garden. When: Saturday, July 17th 9:00 am How much: Tickets are $20 through EventBrite Roy Raley Park is right next to Pendleton's world famous Round Up Grounds. The park is nestled under huge old shade trees, has an outdoor concert stage, and has been reserved exclusively for this event. Mojo the Party Band will play from 3:00 to 5:00, and the Midway Bar and Grill will be on-site with pulled pork, sausage hoagies, and adult beverages for purchase. When the band is done, folks are invited to make the short walk across the street to bench-race and swap adventure tales at the new BackFire Station motopub. After that, Pendleton has much more to offer in it's historic downtown--there's nothing like it in summer time. Folks should arrive at the park gassed-up between 9:00 and 9:15 am (Dave's Chevron is right across the street). Riders will be staged and will leave in groups starting at 10:00 am. There will be an all-pavement option and a second route that will include an off-road mid-technical excursion up Kanine Ridge and then joining up with the pavement route for the rest of the ride. Gas is available at 135 miles (and possibly +/-90 miles, but not guaranteed). The ride will generally go over the Blue Mountains on the Old Highway, circle through the Starkey area over to Ukiah, over through the Battle Mountain twisties, and then 395 home to Pendleton, music, shade, beer, food, and fun. Additionally, an SRC chase vehicle with gas, tools, and a motorcycle trailer will be sweeping the route for any stragglers!
