Event Description This ride has taken place for 44 years and put on by the Southern California Motorcycling Association. (SCMA) See it on SC-MA.com. It is not a convoy, but can be ridden with friends or solo. All PRE-REGISTERED riders converge at the Start hotel in Mexicali, Mexico (south of El Centro immediately over the border) the day before the ride. Riders will check in there and receive their Three Flags Passport, hat shirt, etc. All tickets are sold in ADVANCE. There will be a dinner with all riders August 31, 2022 (maximum of 325 registrants) that evening and provide any news regarding the route. The route is pre-determined and will be posted months before the start of the ride. Route sheets are also distributed at the hotel. The route is primarily a back roads (pre-ridden) route. There are 4 checkpoints along the way. Each rider will check in at each checkpoint hotel (checkpoint days and hours of each are posted in riders passport) throughout the 5-day ride. They are also posted on the website as E-Blast 2. The finish will be in Penticton, BC Canada. Each rider who completes the ride is awarded a limited edition 45th Annual Three Flags Classic belt buckle. Every year the route is different and every year the buckle is different. You must go to each check point within the designated times and arrive in Penticton, Canada at the finish hotel within the designated time and day to be a certified finisher. Checkpoints are open for the slow and fast rider. We WANT you to successfully finish the ride. It is NOT a race. While you must check in at each checkpoint, you are allowed to deviate from the route as you see fit. There is a finisher's banquet with dinner buffet included in the registration fee.
