Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally

A three-day event, Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally is a yearly event held in July to bring together motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks of life. In the tradition of Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, the Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally carries on the legacy using motorcycles, or iron horses, rather than the actual horses used one hundred years ago. Located in eastern New Mexico in the city of Las Vegas, the rally has recently added a car show to its line up of events.

Rough Rider Motorcycle rally has brought in over 10,000 bikers in years passed and looks to top that each year into the future. Events include a blood drive, poker run, live music and many more. The goal of the rally is to bring people together, but to also give back to the community of Las Vegas. One way that the rally accomplishes this is by participating in the blood drive. If you are passing through Las Vegas in late July, the Rough Rider Rally is sure to have something for all types of enthusiasts.

Storrie Lake State Park

Relax in New Mexico with a visit to a lake with unmatched beauty. With its rustic, clear, and undisturbed nature, Storrie Lake State Park acts as a great host for sailing, wind surfing, and swimming. Fishing opportunities are plentiful and hikers can explore the many trails surrounding the lake.
