We here at CyclistLaw are really excited about the Republic of Texas Biker Rally, which is coming to Austin this weekend (June 11-14, 2015). With all of the negativity that has surrounded biking recently, we look forward to stepping out and showing the world what it truly means to be a biker on the road these days. Look for us, we will be handing out plenty of awesome swag!
This is the largest ticketed motorcycle rally in the USA, where thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts can come together to celebrate bikes, biking, music, nightlife, and Texas. There will be custom bike builders, contests, games, and plenty of vendors, as well as many special musical guests.
Performers this year include Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Asleep at the Wheel, Lukas Nelson, Los Lonely Boys, Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes, the Wagoneers, and many more.
This will be the 20th Anniversary of the Rally festival. It will be held at the Travis County Expo Center, rain or shine. You can buy tickets in advance here, with regular and VIP options available. You must be 18 to enter the rally grounds.
There will also be a parade and downtown party on June 12, with 50 blocks of downtown Austin closed off for this special event. This will be a truly “bikers only parking” event that is not to be missed. You can enjoy the parade, and then afterwards party right in view of the capitol!
Rally officials have been working closely with the Austin Police Department and the Travis County Sheriff’s Department to help ensure that everyone who attends the rally will have a fun and safe experience. However, if you do get injured, be sure to contact us! We are here to help! Most importantly, be safe and have fun!
