2015 Phil Peterson Poker Bike Run
September 17 - 20, 2015

Travel to the Florida Keys on this Epic Motorcycle Ride! Phil Peterson created a poker run to boost the motorcycle business and Key West tourism during the month of September. An event that started with 46 riders has grown to become South Florida’s biggest motorcycle party!

Known as Phil Peterson’s Poker Run, over 10,000 riders from all over the country enjoy this classic motorcycle ride. Starting in Miami, they rumble their engines all the way to Key West, crossing over the many bridges to our island paradise. During the Phil Peterson Poker Run, the motorcycle riders make 5 stops and draw a card at each stop. At the end of the ride, the person who draws the best hand wins! Plus, if you draw one of the top 10 hands, you get a chance to play one round of Texas Hold ‘Em at Cowboy Bill’s on Duval Street!

In addition to poker game, Key West blocks off 8 blocks of Duval Street for the Phil Peterson Poker Run, where a huge bike show is held in front of Rick’s, Durty Harry’s, and Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Locals, tourists, and bikers enjoy this mini-Mardi Gras with its carnival atmosphere, music, food, and cold beer!

After riding from Miami and Key West, there’s no better place to rest your body than The Inn at Key West. Enjoy comfortable guest room accommodations and complimentary WiFi at our Key West hotel – just minutes from Duval Street – where all the parties occur. Here, guests can enjoy delicious onsite dining, a large pool, and pool bar.
