Join us for the Ultimate Sturgis Experience then Ride With Us to Washington, D.C.

[ 12 days / 11 nights – August 9 – 20, 2021 ]

Meet up with us at Sturgis and join us for the 80th Anniversary Sturgis Rally. We’ll be headquartered at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip,  participate in the Biker Belles Celebration, then roll on out East towards the Milwaukee/Chicago area, another of our start city locations, where we pick up more lady riders. From Chicagoland, we head down to Knoxville, TN, where all three of the cross-country routes converge and we meet up with our sister riders journeying in to meet us from their own epic cross-country journeys. This is where the serious party starts!!! From Knoxville, we all ride together to Washington, D.C. — in small pods, not in a giant group! — for our three-day Grand Finale Extravaganza Celebration.

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
  • 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
