The Gypsy Motorcycle Club is coming to Risien Park in San Saba for Memorial Day Weekend.
The club was established in 1932. Back then motorcyclist were known as the sour pickles of society. We changed that image, but still wear the original pickle patch on the back of our vests. The club is now family oriented, and you will find the young and the old in our membership.
This is a once-a-year rally that only Gypsy Motorcycle Club members are allowed to attend, so that we can get to know our fellow Gypsies better. Although some of us look a little rough, we are normal folks that live, love, laugh and share an interest in motorcycles and camping. We ride all makes and models of motorcycles from Harley to Honda.
There will be dancing Friday and Saturday nights, scheduled rides and games played on our bikes. We are planning a motorcycle parade through town on Saturday at 6:00 P.M. The Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA) will be providing coffee, drinks and a church service on Sunday morning, coordinated by Jack Blossman of San Saba.
The club is well known for its charity and volunteer work. We have helped with the Llano Crawfish Open every year for over 10 years now, and have added a motorcycle run to their long list of activities.
Although most Gypsy rallies benefit charitable organizations, some are held to aid a fellow Gypsy with medical expenses. We are your average Joe cutting loose and having fun, so feel free to say “hi” and visit with any one of us.
We will be coming from all over, including Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Florida and even Germany and Mexico. Although some of the Germany and Mexico members don’t speak English, they still have a neat experience coming to the US and uniting with other Gypsy members.
