Charity Fun Runs

A very important part of the San Diego Bike Fest is giving back to those who have given everything for us.  We’ll have two charity fun runs with 100% of proceeds going to two charities.

  • The May Ride Foundation which supports Vets getting into homes here in San Diego.
  • Sons of Charity which supports families of kids with cancer.

Tickets will be $20 per bike.  With each ticket bought you’ll be entered into a raffle for a bunch of great prizes!

Our charity fun runs will be starting at noon on Saturday, July 2nd.

May Ride

May Ride, the San Diego bike fest's veteran's charity.The May Ride was created by two buddies with a common passion, riding. When Clint August and Marc Baluch bought their Harley Davidson Motorcycles over 13 years ago, they realized that the riding community as a whole loved two things. First was the freedom of the open road and the second was that just about every rider they met along the way were very passionate about charitable work.

During a conversation about the importance of our Men and Women in uniform one evening, Marc suggested that maybe they should put together a motorcycle run to raise funds for our Heroes in the Armed Forces. Clint agreed and they put together the first “May Ride”, in 2003.

The first event had only one rider and about 40 people at the after party. The second year attracted just over 60 riders and close to a hundred people at the after party and it’s grown every year since with the help of a core group of great friends and wonderful volunteers who put their heart and souls into the planning and in making sure that everyone involved has a great time while honoring our military, past and present! For three years now the “May Ride”, has had between 250-350 riders and over 1,000 attendees at the after party.

The event has grown in attendance and in activities, live entertainment, shows, contests and much more. Whether you ride or not, this is a festival that you want to be a part of.
