ROT Rally 2018: The best biker rally in Texas and what to expect

When it comes to things to be proud of, Texas has a lot of qualities to wear with pride. The music, the landscape, the Tex-Mex food, and let’s not forget about some good ol' southern style BBQ that will make your heart sing. The state of Texas is no stranger to having a good time, and the Republic of Texas Bike Rally (a.k.a. ROT Rally) further proves that point. It takes place in Austin, Texas, annually, this year from June 7th to the 10th, and it’s a biker rally you don’t want to miss.

ROT Rally shows up every year with a packed schedule of awesome events to attend, and if you have a rally list you’re trying to prioritize, this one should be on it. 

One thing's for sure: Austin is ready for one hell of a party. The question is, can you handle what ROT Rally is going to dish out?

Want to watch some friendly competition happen? Russ Brown Motorcycle will be paring up with Biker Pros to bring you “Daughters of Custom Build-Off,” and you’ll get to watch three different Father and Daughter duos compete to see who can create the sickest looking bike. The Kustom Kulture-Artisan Bike Show will give you a first-hand look and showcase some of the best designs, creativity, and engineering of motorcycles.

AMA Supermoto will be there for their 4th leg of the National Champion Series, and if you’ve never seen it before, this is a ROT Rally Event you’ll want attend. If you want even more speed, there will be a Flat Track Racing Motorcycle event sure to get your heart pumping. If you’re itching to get involved, the track will be open on Friday and accessible to anyone with a bike. Don’t expect any bike restrictions, either, so it won’t be for the faint of heart.


If you're looking for more competition, the “Texas Rollergirls-Thunderdome” is another event you’ll want to check out. Roller derby is crazy fun to watch, and if you’ve never been to a competition before, now is your chance to experience it. Pick a team, cheer them on, and watch to see which team will reign supreme!

If you’re currently serving or have served in any branch of the Military, the Military Bike Giveaway will be your chance to test your luck at winning a brand new motorcycle! All Veterans with a military ID will be able to enter the contest, and while the chance at a free bike could never properly thank a Veteran for his or her sacrifice, that won’t stop ROT Rally from trying.

You won’t want to miss out on Friday, either, because the 24th Annual ROT Biker Rally Motorcycle Parade will be happening downtown! The city of Austin will have 54 downtown square blocks shut down to host the party, and the 11-mile parade will leave some awesome memories to look back on. You’ll have BBQ, Cajun, Wood Fired Pizza, and enough Big Fat Sandwiches to fill your heart and stomach. And if there’s one thing you might already know about Austin, it’s the live music capital of the world, so prepare yourself for even more awesome in the department.

Austin knows how to entertain, that's for sure!

The best part? RumbleOn will be there with a custom photo experience and an interactive and unique game of toss-up! The catch? It’s the biggest game of toss-up you’ll ever play because everything is bigger in Texas, am I right? Come meet our Rumble Girls and see how skilled of an arm you have to snag some awesome prices!
