“This ride started two years ago when I was in high school and was looking for a way to give back to my community. After thinking about it, I decided there must be some way to combine my love of riding with a local cause, and the Poker Run was created.
"I have continued to organize the annual event to benefit the Placer Food Bank because the economy continues to impact so many families in our community."
The ride will begin at the Roseville Yamaha at 10 a.m. and will weave throughout the foothills before returning to the Roseville dealership for a barbecue.
The 71 mile route includes five “poker” stops where participants will collect their poker hand. Interested riders are encouraged to download a registration form by visiting http://www.roseville-yamaha.
com or may also complete a registration form on the day of the ride, beginning at 9 a.m.
The registration fee is $30 per single rider, $40 for 2-up riders and includes a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning as well as post-ride barbecue and live music.
All proceeds from the ride will go to benefit Placer Food Bank programs.
