There is also a stop at the Zoo so all riders can visit the Grizzlies along the way. The fun event will also feature opportunity drawings, prizes, a Chapter Challenge, vendors, a BBQ, drinks and live music.

To participate in this fun annual motorcycle run registration will be held at Chad’s Place  from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Don’t forget…………Chad’s Place has a new location and is now open at 40824 W. Big Bear Blvd. in beautiful Big Bear Lake. Online registrations are also being accepted by logging onto:

The charge for this fun and exciting event  is $25 for rider #1 and $20 for rider #2. The fee includes a Poker Run Pin and T-Shirt. Come on up and enjoy the beauty of the San Bernardino Mountains and Big Bear Lake. The weather is perfect, the temperature is cool, the lake is gorgeous and this is a great fundraiser.
