Our Super Sensational “Ride to Sturgis” Experience [ 12 days / 11 nights – July 31 – August 11, 2021 ]

Half of the Coast-to-Coast Ride! This is the ultimate adventure on the Centennial Ride event. Portland is one of our three West Coast Star City / Start City locations, and you will ride to Sturgis across our great nation visiting historic sites, riding cool roads, and seeing the best of what America has to offer along that specific route. We’ll be riding secondary roads and avoiding highways as much as possible. Most days will be ~250 miles and there will be approximately one rest day per week.

This route travels along the northern portion of the USA. From our start in pretty Portland, we spend 8 days on the road heading to the 80th Anniversary of the Sturgis motorcycle rally. There we’ll spend 2 nights in a custom-curated experience co-designed by Alisa and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip which you’ll never forget. Glamping at our own private ladies-only tree-lined area at the Buffalo Chip (Our definition of Glamping = sleeping in a white Calvary center-pole tent with screens, cot with mattress, sheets, towels, chairs, electricity, and showers a short walk away). Enjoy access to all of the Buffalo Chip concerts and entertainment, take part in the Biker Belles Celebration at the Buffalo Chip at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, the Biker Belles Group Ride, and attend a private event at the Sturgis Museum. If you’ve never been to Sturgis, and want to experience the best of it without any of the drama, then this is the route for you.

Self-Guided Registration

Self-Guided Registration: The DIY Pay-As-You-Go Option

If you register as a self-guided rider, then you are completely connected to us yet totally independent…you’ll pay an event fee to participate, then pick and choose what you want to participate in. This way you only pay for what you’re interested in – not the whole shebang.
After registration we’ll send you a form on which you can let us know what nights you’ll be with us and your billing details, and we’ll send your booking details directly to our hotels (thereby saving you having to call all 21-24 hotels). They’ll charge you directly for any deposits and fees and you’re responsible for any changes to your reservations. (Note that because we are in some big cities with lots of events going on the same time as ours you may have to pay a deposit well in advance – our contract with each hotel is different.) We’ve tried our best to negotiate breakfasts to be included in your discounted room rates, but there will be some hotels where we did not (like those $38 breakfast buffets at big city hotels) so you can make that choice on your own.

Once you’re registered you’ll be able to find your own roommate (if you want one to help reduce costs) in our closed Facebook Group for Centennial Ride riders.

Self-Guided Registration – What’s Included:

  • Event Fee
  • Start City Party
  • Hotel Room Reservations (so you don’t have to call all 21-24 hotels)
  • Route Information
  • Information on and access to any and all “free” events we’ve negotiated along the way
  • Any “free” lunches at dealerships or partner venues along the way
  • Any “free” evening happy hours we’ve negotiated for the entire group
  • Daily Briefings (if desired)
  • Route Book
  • Goodie Bag
  • Centennial Ride Keepsake
