(2) Rider and passenger must check-in at a minimum of four (4) destinations.
(3) Rider must check-in during 3 separate months of the 5 month Polar Bear season (example: 2 check-ins in November, 1 check-in in January and 1 check-in in March = 4 minimum check-ins in 3 separate months).
(4) Earn a minimum of 2,000 points as a rider and 1,000 points as a passenger

How to earn points:

(1) Get your beginning mileage registered by:

• Come to the Road Warrior/Polar Bear check-in on Sunday, November 10 between 12:00 – 1:00 pm at Classic Harley-Davidson -or-
• Send a photo of your bike’s VIN and odometer via either email or text to: Robin Shilling via email @ robinrides@gmail.com or text @ 610-781-0870 -or-
• Stop by Classic Harley-Davidson and have a member of the staff annotate your VIN and mileage.

(2) Earn 275 points per destination check-in.
(3) Earn 1 point for each mile ridden between the time your beginning mileage is annotated and Sunday, March 29, 2020.

Point Total Qualification Examples:

• 4 destinations x 275 points/destination = 1,100 points + 900 miles needed = 2,000 points;
• 6 destinations x 275 points/destination = 1,650 points + 350 miles needed = 2,000 points;
• 8 destinations x 275 points/destination = 2,200 points, no miles needed

Ride cancellation:

NO ride will be cancelled unless the destination location is unable to open. One of the program coordinators will be at the destination during the designated time, even if they have to arrive via a four-wheel vehicle.

Perfect attendance:

Ride to and sign in at all ride destinations, except any bonus location which may be added (such as Daytona Beach, FL). This includes the Road Warrior/Polar Bear check-in on November 10, 2019 and the Polar Bear Awards luncheon on Sunday, March 29, 2020.

DISCLAIMER:
The Polar Bear program is intended to be a hard-core program. As previously stated, no rides will be cancelled unless the destination location is unable to open. Only you can decide if the conditions on your driveway and local roads are safe enough for you to pass. Remember, these rides are opportunities to ride your motorcycle, not requirements. If you feel it is too risky to ride, please come via a four-wheel vehicle.
