More than 10,000 bikers will participate in the 42nd Annual Phil Peterson’s Key West Poker Run, South Floridaâ€™s biggest biker party of the year! It features a scenic trek from Miami to Key West, with stops along the way to draw what will hopefully be a winning poker hand, and a fun-filled weekend in Key West with closed-off streets for biker-style merrymaking, including food, drinks, a myriad of contests and the ever-popular custom bike show. For a $10 donation, riders can stop at five designated locations along the Overseas Highway (US Highway 1) to draw their poker hands. These poker hand donations benefit the Diabetes Research Institute and the Key West Sunrise Rotary Club. Holders of the 10 best poker hands will be eligible for a winner-take-all round of Texas Hold’Em on Saturday night in Key West. Registration for the event begins at 9 a.m. at either Harley-Davidson location, where you pick up a poker sheet and weekend parking band. Drivers of vehicles can also participate in the run. The weekend concludes with a waterfront brunch at the Conch Republic Seafood Company on Greene Street.
