This year’s event will again be a “poker ride,” meaning there will be healthy competition to see who can make the best poker hand after collecting cards at each of the stops along the ride. There will be a bonus segment up to Armstrong Connector for extra cards. Jokers are wild. As this is a night ride, don’t forget to bring your lights. One light on your bars and another on your helmet will provide the best night ride experience.

The winner will be chosen based on three factors: judges vote, audience text to vote, and money raised for Tahoe Arts Project. All proceeds from the event directly benefit TAP and support the mission of providing cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the performing arts and education with a focus on youth.
