Weekends are for motorcycle rallies. You hop on your bike, head to a new place, and meet other bikers from all over the country (and sometimes even the world).
Some events feature stunts and other events, while others boast shows with impressive displays of collectibles. It’s also common these days to attend motorcycle rallies that raise money for a worthy cause.
If you live in Virginia or plan on making the trek there, we’ve included a list of the most popular motorcycle rallies that local Virginians have on their calendars.

1. Spring Poker Run – Culpeper, Virginia
If you’ve never done a poker run on a motorcycle, you’re in for a treat. These events involve riding to different locations to pick up a card for your poker hand. Once you’ve collected all five cards, your hand is complete, and you can see which rider wins!
Location: Sign up at Pepper’s Grill in the Culpeper Best Western Plaza.
2. Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom – Woodstock County
This event is fun for the whole family. In addition to a beer garden (for the adults), there’s also live entertainment, bike shows, and plenty of vendors to help fill your belly and restock your wardrobe. Stroll around the swap meet looking for vintage fare and check out (or enter) the tattoo contest.
You can even get your bike detailed by an on-site detailer while enjoying some quality time with friends and families.
