Corpus Christi BIKEFEST-XX "Roar by the Shore"

  • Oct 11, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's meet Friday morning, 8:30 at Bucc ee's in Richmond and ride out to Corpus Christi Bay.  KSU at 9:00.

BikeFest celebrates 20th anniversary event with a new home in Corpus Christi.  Budweiser, special appearance by Sons of Anarchy, Corpus Christi Harley Davidson and the Bay...

The registration fee is $50 for three days.  Day passes, (viewing only) are available at the door for $20 per day.

For those of us who want to save the money, there are other distractions:  Hanging out on the beach at the hotel, Padre Island National Sea Shore, Port Aransas, Rockport Seafair, etc. 

I called two hotels on North Beach, just across the bridge from the bikefest: The Radisson ($125.00/night) and the Quality Inn ($85.00 - $95.00/night).  Both are on the beach on CC Bay.  They have blocked off rooms for bikers.  Their phone numbers are in the "Hotels" link, below.

The route may change.  The route posted in the link is about 190 miles and takes the back roads.  I figured two rest stops:  one at Bay City and one at Port Lavaca (Buc ee's!).

    Hello everyone,

    We're less than two weeks away from the ride to the CC Bikefest, and I'd like to get an idea of who plans to ride with the group on Friday morning. Please reply to this message and let me know if you plan to ride with the group, or if you're going to meet us in CC.

    If you plan to ride with the group, and you see that you're going to be a FEW minutes late, please contact me on my cell so we know to wait for you.

    Thanks for your help. I'm looking forward to riding with everyone.

    Ride safe,
    Gary

    Hello everyone,

    I got an update from the Roar by the Shore folks saying that online registration will end at 10:00 this morning. So, if you plan to buy the $50.00 early rally pass, do it quickly.

    The update indicates that you can still get a $50.00 general pass and a $20.00 day pass at the rally. Sorry, the $300.00 VIP passes are sold out. Bummer.

    If you're planning on riding to the rally, let me know if you plan to ride with the group Friday morning, or meet us in Corpus.

    Ride safe,
    Gary

      $50? Wow, that makes Galveston an incredible rally deal. Free....

      2 · October 8, 2013

    • Chris

      $50 gets you a rally shirt, pin and entry to the concerts. Lone Star rally is free if you want to go from booth to booth and maybe a concert. If you want a shirt and pin which I typically get that starts to add up. Plus I believe some of their concerts are pay as well.

  • Kristie P

    I will send some TFR Koozies with Jim if anyone wants one. They are $5 each. (proceeds from the sale goes to the group)

  • Bill A.

    I'd like to ride but is there anyone that wants to access the Navy Base? I have miltary ID and the NEX has the most interesting items for sale. Maybe a few of us can shop after we "roar by the shore" Just thinking out loud.

    Just registered for our weekend passes and looking forward to getting out on the road.

    September 27, 2013

      I just went online and did the weekend pass . Seems like a better deal for the difference in price.

      1 · September 25, 2013

  • Chris

    Looks like you get a ticket (or tickets with the weekend pass) for the H-D Bike giveaway but the drawing is after the Joan Jett concert Saturday night (MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN). Both areas for the rally (Concrete Street Amphitheater and American Bank Center) are about 3 miles from the hotel. I will probably look into getting a taxi for Saturday night so I can enjoy myself at the concert.

    September 23, 2013

    • Brett

      We're getting the weekend passes as well

      September 24, 2013

    • Chris

      Elizabeth...The weekend pass gives you general admission to some of the concerts and other events where as the single day pass does not. Also if you get the weekend pass early online you also get a rally t-shirt and pin.

    I reserved a room for Friday and Saturday at the Quality Inn on North Beach. They have rooms available right now. If you make reservations there, be sure to tell them you're there for the bikefest, and ask for that rate (85 - 95 / night). Otherwise, they will quote a higher rate.

    July 4, 2013

    • Chris

      I finally got my room reserved. Called a few times over the last week and kept getting the same guy and he was trying to charge me $149 and said he didn't know about a discounted rate. I checked online today and it showed a room for $89. I called and a different person answered and gave me a rate of $79.99.

      I can't reserve my room yet, because I have to see if I have to work for the Army. If I'm free I will set it up.

      July 21, 2013

  • Chris

    I'm a maybe for now. What hotel are you staying at so I can reserve a room before they are gone. I can always cancel it if something for one of these girls screws up my plans.

      Will this rally be as big as lone star rally

      July 11, 2013

    • Gary S.

      The CC bike fest web site said they expect 15,000 people at the event. One article I read about the 2012 Lone Star Rally said 500,000 people attended.

    I can't wait to go. I have family in the Valley that I have not seen and would love to see them again. This is going to be an awsome ride. I might have to leave later on the day so if anyone wants to make plans for later on the day please let me know. I'm thinking 5pm or 1700.
