WHAT IS IT? – The “Wild West Rendezvous” (formerly known as the “West Coast Rendezvous”) is an annual, old school chopper campout & weekend party for 21 and older only. At WWR, we have on-site camping, cookouts, old school biker games, biker rodeo, swap meet, live music, great area rides, our notorious nightly campfire parties and more…
WHERE IS IT? – The Wild West Rendezvous is held at the Saddle Sore Ranch located in Golden Valley, AZ, on Historic Route 66 (milepost 36.5). On the western edge of Arizona, where California, Nevada and Arizona all meet. It is on private property, and it is neutral ground.
The seclusion is part of the appeal at the current Saddle Sore Ranch location. It allows us to have a great time, and make amazing memories, without disturbing any neighbors and without having nosey neighbors disturb us. To date, we have had tens of thousands of people at the ranch, from around the world. They come on motorcycles, trikes, cars, trucks, rv’s, motorhomes, etc.
WHAT GOES ON AT THE EVENT? – Thursday is “early arrival day”. Longer distance travelers rolling in, setting up camp. Go for some day rides, etc. Based on how many early arrivals we have, we may do some games, contests, etc on Thursday, and we will have a campfire party Thursday night.
Friday we have more arrivals setting up camp. We will do some biker games and activities onsite based on attendees. By Friday night, the music, games and campfire parties will kick off in full force.
Saturday morning, some event attendees may choose to go explore some of the AMAZING area rides, including the Grand Canyon West Rim with the famous glass “Skywalk”, or ride up to the Hoover Dam, Hualapai Mountain, the World Famous “Mohave Rattlesnake” with 222 curves in 10 miles, and more. You can also ride just over the hill to the town of Laughlin, NV to take a dip in the Colorado River. Don’t forget to “Get Your Kicks on Route 66″… The area surrounding the Saddle Sore Ranch is home to the longest uninterrupted stretch of Route 66 that is still in existence today. Along the way, you can visit historic “Wild West” towns on the Route like Seligman, AZ., Hackberry, AZ., Oatman, AZ., Needles, CA., and more. Tour the Route 66 Museum in Kingman, AZ.
Wherever your adventures take you during the day, head back to the Ranch for the evening festivities that go deep into the night. Bands kick off Saturday night, Biker games, activities, campfire parties and contests including Ride-In Chopper Show, Best Body Paint, Best Tattoo, Best Beard, Best Beer Belly, Miss SSR contest, Blue Collar Build Off final judging and more.
Our event is open to everyone that can show mutual respect. All bikes, riders, guests and colors. We will show you, your friends and your club the same level of respect that you show to us, our property and our guests. SSR is a neutral zone, unaffiliated with any club.
WHAT TO EXPECT – Expect everything in the schedule above to get tossed out the fucking window… This is a Chopper Campout. We don’t do “schedules”. We will have fun, party and raise hell as it comes along. If you want to adhere to a schedule, go work some overtime instead of coming here. We like to include a list of shit that we CAN do, but the bottom line is that everything depends on the vibe. We do shit when we do shit. NO GLASS ALLOWED AT THE SADDLE SORE RANCH AND NO DISCHARGING OF FIREARMS.
