MT Samat/SBMA Route

This route is without a doubt be a memorable one that will take riders through the scenic winding back roads of Bataan! The actual round trip route will take us from Angeles City to Hermosa, continue south into Bataan past Balanga where we will then take the Mt. Samat turnoff (First Check Point) and continue to the town of Morong and then to the rear entrance of SBMA (Subic Base). We will continue through SBMA and down the end of the Toll way back to A. C., or for Bikes under 400CC they will have to travel the Main gate or Kalayaan gate or the Kalaklan gate and go the Zig zag road back toward Dinalupihan where we will enter onto the National Highway then continue into Dinalupihan and back into Angeles City. Total throttle time is 4 to 6hrs. This is a must ride for riders that have never been on this loop before!

  1. SAMAT/SBMA was chosen for this poker run because of its long scenic winding road, no traffic, it’s quiet and peaceful, most anywhere along the route is safe to stop for breaks and/or work on bikes, a lot of out-of-town riders have never had the chance to enjoy this route, etc. You must come see it for yourself!

These are Official checkpoint opening/closing times and their locations!

Start: Opens at 07:00am and closes at 4:00pm (Mad Dog Motorcycle Club Area The El Kabayo Horse Festival)
Checkpoint #1: Opens at 07:45am and closes at 10:30pm (Caltex Station Capas)

Finish: Closes at 4:00pm (The Mad Dog Motorcycle Club Area at the El Kabayo Horse Festival) 

NOTE: There’s a possibility because we are using multiple decks of cards that someone can end up with “5 of a kind” (example: 5 Aces). So not to complicate things… we will make it “the strongest hand wins” regardless! Five Aces will beat four Aces and Five 2s will beat 4 Aces! And if there’s a tie for any position, then the riders that are tied must each draw one card from the deck until their winning positions can be determined (highest card wins the tie-breaker). But the one draw back to using multiple decks of card is that it’s possible that someone could have a “straight” going but then they end up with two of the same identical cards, that would break up the “straight” (Example: like a Ten, a Jack, a Queen, and then two Kings of the same suit), that would suck, but that would just be the luck of the draw, They loose!

Come Join in on a Fun Day for a great Cause with the Mad Dog Motorcycle Club and ride the 12th Annual Charity Poker Run with us.

Lets have Fun, Enjoy, and MOST OF ALL BE SAFE!!!!!
