Las Vegas Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally
Jul 27 – Jul 29 all-day

Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally (July 27–July 29): Inspired by Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders, and their reunion held in 1899 in Las Vegas, this annual gathering of motorcycle riders from all over the country honors that camaraderie and sense of honor. There are lots of iron horses, interesting characters, three days of live music, a motorcycle rodeo, a bike show, and competitions.

About Us

Welcome to the 13th Annual Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Always held on the last full weekend of July, this Rally was started by local motorcycle riders who came together in 2005 to plan a Rally around the area’s history and special environment. The name was chosen because Rough Riders had a long tradition in Las Vegas.

Early in 1898, Theodore Roosevelt recruited the 1st Volunteer Calvary Regiment from the western territories—New Mexico wouldn’t become a state for fourteen more years. He chose to enlist these men because of his confidence in their ability to adapt, their self-sufficiency and their spirit. The regiment’s performance during the Spanish-American War proved his belief in the frontier character. The men he chose came from various backgrounds and circumstances. Even so, these men all formed strong personal ties. Led by Theodore Roosevelt, the first reunion of the regiment was held in Las Vegas in 1899. Over 600 of the original 1000 soldiers attended. During the next 70 years, Rough Rider reunions were held to honor the regiment’s military service, but especially to celebrate the camaraderie and unique personalities that defined the Rough Riders.

Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders

Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders

For the past twelve years, the Rough Rider Motorcycle Rally has brought motorcyclists from all walks of life, where camaraderie, unique bikes and personalities characterize the western spirit. Las Vegas’ historic Bridge Street which enters into our expansive Plaza is the backdrop for the Rally. Shops, businesses, vendors and restaurants provide rally goers the opportunity for unique experiences. The roads radiating out of the town and wind thru amazing scenery and villages give riders of the iron horse a variety of options.

Check out the schedule of events for updates. Don’t forget to support the Rally and purchase a ticket for a round trip for two, to Las Vegas, Nevada with $500 spending cash. Be part of the tradition started by Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders over 100 years ago and ride in on your iron horse on the last weekend in July.

“Celebrate the Future” Day
In 2006, we began “Celebrate the Future” day in honor of Spaceport America. Science, engineering and aeronautic organizations present demonstrations and displays to educate our citizens on the impact and employment possibilities of the Southwest Regional Spaceport.

Pick a direction… Any direction…
The surrounding areas hold your next adventure. With New Mexico State Parks in every direction, you can rock hunt, boat, bike, hike or ski. With Leasburg State Park and Fort Seldon to the south and Caballo Lake State Park, Percha Dam State Park and Elephant Butte Lake State Park to the north, outdoor enthusiasts are sure to find the perfect opportunity for their recreation! Click here to get directions!

Hatch Business
Located off Interstate 25, between Las Cruces and Truth or Consequences, the Village of Hatch has experienced steady but moderate growth. In 2007, the town population registered a little over 1,600 people. The Village of Hatch also serves seven unincorporated communities with a combined population of 5,000 people.

With four banks, two grocery stores, a pharmacy, a few retail stores, and a smattering of restaurants, Hatch offers all the amenities of small-town life. The Ben Archer Health Center meets the community’s healthcare needs with doctors, a dentist, an ambulance service and emergency medical technicians. Our local Municipal Airport was awarded the “most improved small community airport” and continues to improve.

The opening of Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport, brings the exciting frontier of commercial space travel to our backyard. The entrance to Spaceport America is only nine miles south from the Village of Hatch, which makes us the “New Gateway to Space.”

Hatch History
Born from an extension of the Santa Fe Railroad Company in 1880, Hatch, New Mexico, began as an adobe post office and a railroad flag station. Named after General Edward Hatch, Commander of the Southwest military, the town grew until a flood in 1921 destroyed many of the adobe buildings constructed of earth and wood.

The village rebuilt, and continues to prosper as an agricultural community to this day. The advent of the nearby Spaceport America, the nation’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport, promises an exciting new chapter in the history of Hatch. Visit some of our affiliates here.
