We are proud to announce that our 2016 Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge will start June 21 at Pala Casino Spa & Resort in Northern San Diego County, CA.

The ride will leave the Pala Reservation and travel across the United States to the coast of Maine before ending on July 2 in the Wolf's Run on the Seneca Nation near Irving, NY.  

Pala Casino Spa & Resort is owned and operated by the Pala Band of Mission Indians. "Chairman Robert Smith, the Pala tribe and our entire casino team are proud to partner with the Challenge to help the Pine Ridge Chamber of Commerce provide educational and employment opportunities for so many deserving people. It also is pretty cool to be the starting point," said Bill Bembenek, Pala's chief executive officer.
