Motorcycle Scavenger Hunt
This ain’t no poker run...
This ultimate experience has you cruising through Hollister, CA in a way you never have before. An event best enjoyed with your crew.
The Hoody Hoo Throwdown, powered by SENA, is a moto-scavenger-hunt where participants track their ride using the free smartphone app REVER, planning their own route and riding to as many waypoints as possible. Each stop is worth a specific number of points. The rider with the most points wins, with a portion of proceeds going to the Veterans Charity Ride.
For the Hollister event we will meet up at both the CycleGear in San Jose, CA and the '47 Camp Ride just outside Hollister. We launch at noon, with dozens of waypoints scattered throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, San Jose, San Benito County, and towards the coast.
Riders will zig-zag through forests, mountains, farmlands, and eventually make their way to the famed Hollister Rally Revival. Scoring ends at 4pm and besides prizes for the top three finishers, awards will be given to the best Instagram post (using hashtag #hhthrowdown), leader at the halfway point, and furthest distance ridden to attend the event.
The awards and afterparty will be at the Bolado campgrounds south of Hollister, where the 47 Camp Ride is happening. This gives riders access to live music, food, drinks, and a silent auction with 100% of proceeds going to the Veterans Charity Ride. It's free to enter whether you are in the Hoody Ho Throwdown or not, but our riders are eligible for $10 off overnight camping.
Be sure to see the FAQ and to sign up for our blog, which will give further details as the event gets closer. Check out the 47 Camp Ride's webpage for their entire four-day schedule, and see the Hollister Revival Rally's website for details of the many activities happening in and around one of the worlds oldest motorcycle rallies. For riders already planning to attend the rally this is a great way to avoid the highway, make a game out of your ride down, get a shot a some cool prizes, and help wounded and amputee veterans. We're really not seeing a downside to this. Click HERE to register now!
