Pismo Beach Motorcycle Classic September 18-19, 2010
An iconic image was created in June, 1929. Hundreds of motorcyclists converged on the sand for the Western Federation of Motorcyclists (W.F.M.) Rally in beautiful Pismo Beach, California. This panoramic photo continues to spur the imagination of motorcyclists everywhere, as evidenced by the numerous vendors who continue to package and sell copies of it to this very day. It's time to recreate history.
The Pismo Beach Motorcycle Classic is being co-organized by the Pasadena Motorcycle Club, est. 1907 and the San Francisco Motorcycle Club, est. 1904. The goal is to re-start the tradition of assembling hundreds of motorcyclists on the beach for a panoramic photo taken during the WFM Rallies of the 1920's (a similar photo exists from the 1924 rally). We currently have entrants pre-signed from all over California, including your area, and as far away as Ontario Canada.
The Northern California ride will have three start points, that will merge close to the event location, in order to ride in together; one will start from the Capital City Motorcycle Club (CCMC) in Sacramento, CA, one will start at the Port Stockton Motorcycle Club (PSMC) in Stockton and the other from the SFMC in San Francisco.
The Southern California ride will start at Cycle Gear in Newhall, CA. The ride will have a scenic ride north with one check point along the way; and riders will ride at their own pace.
All rides will conclude at the Rock and Roll Diner (1300 Railroad Street Oceano, CA 93445-9630 - (805) 473-2040) in Oceano, California, for The Rally portion of the weekend. The Opening Ceremonies on Saturday, September 18th will begin at 2 p.m. with a United States Air Force Color Guard and singing of the National Anthem. Scheduled entertainment throughout the day will be provided by three bands; "Rubber Side Down", Tiny Television, and Monkey.
The event will include vendors, food, and assorted activities throughout the day including a bike contest. (Bike Entries are currently being accepted). Limited edition t- shirts are available for pre-order at http://www.PismoBeachMotorcycleClassic.com/GEAR.html.
The PBMC will be donating a portion of the proceeds to 3 Charities, located in the San Francisco area, the Pismo Beach area, and the Los Angeles Area.
Sunday morning, Sept. 19th all Pismo Beach Motorcycle Classic participants will gather at the Pismo Beach Pier for the panoramic photo. This 2010 photo will be a part of history and inspire motorcyclists in the same way the 1929 image has. Each Rally entrant will receive a copy of the 2010 Commemorative Photo.
