Rally around August


The thousands of motorcycle riders who congregate in Baker City for the annual Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally have pretty much everything the need here.

Except decent weather.

This dilemma is easily solved, though. We support the rally organizers’ plan to schedule the event, which has taken place in early June, for later in the summer.

Mid-August seems the most logical option. That doesn’t coincide with other local events, nor with the much larger motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D., which is set this year for Aug. 6-12.

As for the weather, consider these numbers: average June rainfall: 1.33 inches; average in August: .85.
