The 2015 Phil Peterson Poker Bike Run in Key West!
Travel to the Florida Keys on this Epic Motorcycle Ride!
September 17-20, 2015
Over 40 years ago, Phil Peterson created a poker run to boost the motorcycle business, as well as the Key West tourist season, during the month of September. What started with 46 riders has grown to become South Florida’s biggest motorcycle party – known as Phil Peterson’s Poker Run! Today, over 10,000 riders from all over the country enjoy this epic motorcycle ride. They rumble their engines from Miami to Key West, savoring warm sunshine, ocean breezes, and the many bridges that cross over the blue waters of the Florida.
During the poker run, these motorcycle riders make 5 stops and draw a card at each stop. The winner is the person who draws the best hand! Plus, if you draw one of the top 10 hands, you get a chance to play one round of Texas Hold ‘Em at Cowboy Bill’s on Duval Street!
Key West blocks off 8 blocks of Duval Street for the Phil Peterson Poker Run, where this huge bike show is held in front of Rick’s, Durty Harry’s, and Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Locals, tourists, and bikers can enjoy the eye candy and sounds of this mini-Mardi Gras with its carnival atmosphere, music, food, and ice cold beer!
