  • Is the $10.00 registration fee for one day or the full rally. +

    The registration fee covers the full rally from start to finish and everything in between. It allows us to offer live music, stunt shows and contests free of charge and we encourage everyone to register.
  • How are we identified once we register? +

    Your registration kit includes a sticker which gets you and your bike past the barricades on a come and go basis.
  • Is there handicap parking? +

    Yes, we reserve three spots in front of the Visitor Information Centre. We'll post the phone number for our shuttle dispatch in mid August, and if you call that number, we'll send a motorcycle or Rally shuttle up to meet you at the Welcome Centre by Tim Hortons and escort you past the barricades to get down to Montague Row. (** The phones are loaned to us by Telus so we only receive the numbers in August.)
  • Why not allow other non-profit organizations to sell tickets on a motorcycle? +

    The Wharf Rat Rally board is made up of volunteers who work year round to ensure the continuation of the Wharf Rat Rally, started over a decade ago. In order to provide free access for visitors to the builders, stunt shows, water shows, fireworks, vendors and much more, the organization needs to generate approximately $400,000. The Rally has only a few ways to generate revenue to cover these expenses and they are: raffle ticket sales, corporate, government and community sponsorships and advertisements, vendor registrations, registrations/donations, merchandise sales and a 50//50 draw. Our raffle ticket sales have always been one of the best generators of funds. People know that by purchasing a ticket on the Rally raffle they are supporting the continuation of the Rally and allowing us to support community groups and charities.There are many well intended groups that support excellent causes, but for every dollar that is given to another cause it takes away from the amount of funding the Rally has to pay expenses and the amount we can give to our community organizations. The Board made a conscious decision, and advised those groups, that we were not going to allow the selling of tickets, by other groups, for the 2011 Rally and into the future. There were still 2 organizations that sold tickets. This took a significant amount of funding from the Rally which did not allow us to provide our full commitment to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in 2011.We have taken a large amount of verbal abuse, actual physical intimidation and just plain “bullying” as a result of wanting to ensure the continuation of a great Rally and our desire to continue to support other non-profit groups, by not allowing the sale of tickets that take away from the Rally’s objectives.
