Being located along the Gulf Coast in November makes this rally a great last hurrah for the riding season. The Lone Star Rally also shares some features with the huge rally that kicks off the riding season—Daytona Beach Bike Week.
Most notable is Strand Street, the Lone Star Rally’s equivalent to Main Street in Daytona Beach. Cruising the Strand is a must-do. And you’ll want to park your motorcycle and spend some time there, too.
The next big similarity to Daytona Bike Week is being on the coast. The sun and sea are best enjoyed on a motorcycle, so do spend some time riding during this event. When you return to the rally, there are plenty of things to enjoy. Here are just some of the planned events:
The primary access to this barrier island is across Galveston Causeway along Interstate 45, which will offer you some awesome views. The Island is 27 miles long and runs southwest from the entrance to Galveston Harbor. At the southern end of the island, you can cross the Galveston toll bridge and ride the Bluewater Highway to Surfside Beach, where you can return to the mainland.
The weather in early November offers average high temperatures in the mid-70s, with low temperatures in the low-to-mid 60s—perfect riding weather. Since this is the Gulf Coast, it’s still possible to experience high temps near 90, and rain is always a possibility. Be prepared—pack your rain gear and sunscreen while you enjoy the coast.
