Join 700+ deaf bikers at Sturgis 2021
Deaf Bikers Rally
The Deaf Bikers of America Foundation is hosting rallies for Deaf bikers all week in Sturgis. Join us at the largest rally of Deaf bikers in the world in 2021.
Our mission rides with deaf bikers
The mission of Deaf Bikers of America Foundation is to educate the community and advocate for the benefit of deaf bikers through charitable donations and the hosting and sponsoring of educational events and programs.
Sponsor The Sturgis 2021 Rally
For many years, Deaf Bikers rallied together at Sturgis – bonding through their love of riding in American Sign Language. Through the decades, the number of Deaf Riders have ballooned to well over 700+ and more. While our gatherings have always been informal, the sheer number of Deaf Riders in attendance has encouraged the Deaf Bikers of America Foundation to provide more infrastructure to support larger and more comfortable gatherings. This includes providing tented areas, food, rider safety outreach, merchandise and opportunities for companies to reach a unique demographic in Deaf Bikers. Our rally tent is always free, inclusive and welcoming to any Deaf Biker or anyone who shares our love for riding.
We are currently seeking donations from individuals and corporate sponsors and donations from brands. Any support that goes towards covering or reducing the costs of hosting a safe and free rally to support up to 1,000 Deaf Bikers would be welcome.
