The Yuma Prison Run ( is an annual charitable event benefiting children's charities sponsored by the Norwalk Motorcycle Club celebrating its 46th running. Our group traveled from our usual starting point, the Thirsty Club in Redondo Beach, in weather that to say the least was unusual for Southern California, cold and rain. The trip is split between freeway riding for the first 90 miles to Temecula then heading up into the mountains to enjoy the scenery and the twisties. Get gas before heading up because services are infrequent and expensive. We stop for lunch in Borrego Springs or Julian alternately going and coming back, which is about half way. The actual event is held at the Yuma Fairgrounds where there are vendors, food, and live music. The run is a parade through the streets of Yuma from the fairgrounds to the Civil War era, historic prison on the Colorado River. It is quite a site, thousands of bikes riding two by two for miles, while many of the locals come out to watch and wave. Later there is a dinner and band back at the fairgrounds all included in the $30 donation for admission.
