The AMCA Sunshine Chapter’s Second Annual Mods vs. Rockers rally and bike show will explode onto the South Florida scene on October 23-24, 2010. The historic rivalry between mods (rode scooters, wore suits & listened to jazz) and the rockers (rode motorbikes, wore denim and leather and listen to rock and roll) in 1960s England sets the theme for this year’s charity event benefiting Animal Aid Inc., a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue shelter and adoption center.
Last year’s event drew over 120 bikes and scooters. This year promises more – near the 200 mark – with more fun and more activities. Everyone is welcome, no matter what you ride. The event will kick off on Saturday, at 9:30 a.m. with a Café Crawl, including a Poker Run starting at various locations from Pompano and Fort Lauderdale. The 60+ mile Crawl will weave through various townships along the coast, a museum and other fun stops, arriving at 4 p.m. at Oceans 11 on Hollywood Beach. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the ride. Starting points will be posted on the website (modvrocker.com) prior to the event.
Sunday there will be a bike show at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. The show is open to all for an entry fee of $10 per bike. Vintage bikes and scooters, café racers, and bobbers are welcome to compete in over a dozen different classes. If the entrant is dressed for the era, so much the better for him or her. All proceeds from the Café Crawl and bike show go to Animal Aid Inc. Judging and vendor set-up will be at 9:30 a.m. Doors open to the public at 11 am. The awards program will be held at 3:30 p.m., with event break down at 4 p.m.
