Check out these Canadian motorcycle rallies this summer

The Horsethief Hideout ranch is a very cool place to have a rally.

Horsethief Hideout Memorial Motorcycle Rally

Invermere, British Columbia, July 4-7

Horsethief Hideout is a ranch just outside Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia, which is famous for its big rally every July. The Hideout is pretty cool on its own, with a replica Wild West jail, dance hall, fort and saloon. The Memorial rally is an event for motorcyclists to attend in remembrance of lost friends. It started when Hideout owner Gary Oja wanted to put together an event to remember a friend who died in a motorcycle accident.

It’s a huge rally now, with hundreds of motorcycles showing up to enjoy the area’s fantastic riding (it’s right off the Golden Triangle loop, a 320-km route through Yoho, Banff and Kootenay national parks). But even with all those great roads and gorgeous scenery, rally attendees want to honour friends who’ve passed on, and that’s why the rally ends with traditional memorial bagpipes playing on Sunday morning.

  1. Me and my cousins go to the Atlanticade Rally in Moncton, NB. held the third week of june. Great folks running it, well organized and they break up large group rides into smaller groups of 25, which is safer and gives you a chance to get to know the folks your riding with. Don’t miss it.

  2. Is this a printed magazine or just on line?? Reason I ask is my wife and 6 of her friends are on the cover and would love to get them a copy for a keep sake.

  3. There *IS* a Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness (HUMM) in Canada (BC) this year!! HUMM Monashees, July 19-21, 2019, also in Nakusp, BC… the weekend after the Canwest Travellers Meeting, so may as well make a family holiday of it. The dual sport and off-road riding in the area is stellar.
