What is a Poker Ride:
A poker ride is not a race. The course includes anywhere from 5-7 stops or stations throughout the 11 miles of trails at the Pismo Preserve. These stations will each have a random assortment of playing cards. A participant will ride their bike to each station at their own pace. When they arrive at the station they will be given a playing card. At the end of the ride each rider will submit their poker hand and the best poker hand will win the grand prize.
All parking will be at the Pismo Beach City Hall on Mattie Road. No parking at the Pismo Preserve. Please park at Pismo Beach City Hall and ride your bike over to the Pismo Preserve (with your helmet on!). Be very careful biking on Mattie road and obey all traffic rules.
You may arrive anytime between 9am and 10am on Saturday, May 19th to check in and begin your ride. This will not be a mass start event, you can start when you are ready and go at your own pace. Instructions and maps will be provided at the start.
All registrations will include a ticket for lunch (burrito and chips). Please select what type of burrito you would like in our question section. This is a BYOB event although we will have some non-alcoholic beverages available.
Online registration is $20 and covers lunch and insurance. Registration closes at 5pm on May 18th and there will be no day-of registration at the trailhead. Event will be capped at 80 participants so sign up early! No need to print out your ticket, we will have all your info.
The Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers purpose for this event is to engage with the mountain bike community and raise money for upcoming projects including the new trail at MDO! All proceeds will go towards improving our local trails.
