ROCK & RIDE is a â€œpoker styleâ€ motorcycle run that has grown into a huge lifestyle event for Corpus Christi. 100% of the registration fees for the ride go directly to a non-profit that benefits our active duty and deployed military. The event has grown tremendously since 2009. Last year, there were over 500 riders and more than 5,000 event attendees.
This year, the ride will circle Corpus Christi Bay with 7 stops including Padre Island, Port Aransas and Portland. The ride will end at the ROCK & RIDE MUSIC FESTIVAL which will be at The Waterâ€™s Edge Park on the Bayfront.
