Hoka HeyChallengers to Cover 7,600 Miles in Long Distance Endurance Ride

Hot Springs, SD (MMD Newsire) July 15, 2014 -- On July 20, 2014, intrepid riders from around the globe will gather once again in Key West, FL for the start of the 5th annualHoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM). Aptly named after a rallying call of the Sioux Indians, this warriors' ride is designed to expand each rider's spirit by testing his or her physical, mental and emotional boundaries. The 2014 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) is open to all American manufacturers (Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian) of V-Twin motorcycles. This year's route will encompass a 7,600 mile course that ends in Homer, Alaska with an End of the Road bash on August 2nd.

Between Key West and Homer, participants will be required to stop at three checkpoints along the way. Selected for their strategic locations and the superior service they offer; the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) is proud to announce that the locations of the checkpoints for this year's event will be: Wind River Harley-Davidson(TM) in Lawton, OK; Big Sky Harley-Davidson(TM) in Great Falls, MT; Harley-Davidson of Prince George(TM) in Prince George, BC.

At approximately 2,000 miles apart, the checkpoints are a welcome pit stop along this grueling route. The time, space and distance provided have avid adventure seekers touting the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) as "the World's Greatest Motorcycle Endurance Ride" and "one of the best experiences of (their) lives".

Beyond just that however; the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) incorporates community spirit into every event. The Challenge is helping to create visibility for the deplorable conditions on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation and several of the riders have used the event name to help raise funds for other charities.

The theme of this year's ride, was chosen because the first-ever Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) took place in 2010 when hundreds of participants traveled 8,500 miles along a different route between Key West and Homer. Approximately one-third of the participants crossed the finish line that year; leaving the rest feeling like they had "UNFINISHED BUSINESS".

The guidelines have changed somewhat since that inaugural event but the philosophy remains the same and riders can expect to be constantly challenged as they head off on an unknown course with fresh directions provided at each checkpoint, traverse back roads and byroads and spend nights outside next to their bikes - in whatever weather Mother Nature provides.

Spectators are invited to come out to the start/finish lines or any of the checkpoints to cheer participants on as they make their bid for excellence! Supporters can plan when to meet the riders by watching their tracking on the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM) website ( www.hokaheychallenge.com ).

For the more adventurous among you... there is still time to enter the 2014 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge(TM). The entry fee has been waived for this year's event so fearless riders can still be a part of something truly great – FOR FREE!! Applications and information can be found online at www.hokaheychallenge.com or by calling 605-890-0386.
