Sometimes a great idea is born and you wonder why you'd never thought of it before. That's the case with the Motorcyclist Alley Rally, returning for its third year in 2019 on April 7. The event has been such a blast the last two times out that we couldn't say no to another go, and we want this year's rally to be bigger and better than ever. That's where you come in.

Grab your gear, fire up the bike and get your butt down to Lucky Wheels Garage in Los Angeles at 9 a.m. on April 7 and be ready for a day of riding you'll never forget. We're going to hit up all the seedy stretches you might typically avoid. Bring along some friends because this is one of those events that's better together.

There’s a lot to see in the alleyways of Los Angeles, and we want you to come along. Join us for the 2019 Alley Rally on April 7, 2019.Julia LaPalme

We're teaming with Cardo Systems so riders can communicate wirelessly, via its new PackTalk Bold Bluetooth-enabled headsets. These devices attach to most any motorcycle helmet and allow you to communicate while riding. They also easily pair to smartphones so you can answer phone calls, listen to music, and/or navigation directions, so you're never lost.

Did we mention it’s absolutely free to participate? Anyone with a motorcycle is welcome to ride along.

And though you might be imagining dilapidated stretches strewn with trash and stink, think again. We’ll hit up some of the street art hot spots along the way and take in some of the beauty among the wreckage. After a few hours exploring, we’ll finish it off with a stop for some lunch (you’ll have to cover your costs for that though).

So mark your calendar and be ready for a phenomenal ride. We'll see you there! Lastly, give us a follow on Instagram so we can be a part of your next ride.
