Laconia, NH - Laconia Motorcycle Week to Celebrate 89th Year
Progressive's Laconia Motorcycle Week, "America's Original Riding Rally," rounds out its eighth decade with a lineup of favorite events and activities, along with new additions to the schedule. Motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to visit and experience the scenery throughout The Granite State, along with racing and hill-climbs, bike shows and build-offs.
Riders can pick up a copy of the Laconia Rally News at Rally Headquarters (RHQ) at the Weirs Beach Waterslide. RHQ is also the place to pick up official souvenirs and get the latest news, schedule changes, and other important information.
Highlights from the schedule of events for the week include:
Daily Gypsy Tours leaving from RHQ showcase the great rides and unmatched scenery of New Hampshire. Riders can kick-off the week with the annual Peter Makris Memorial Ride on Saturday, June 9, or join any of the various poker runs and charity rides throughout the week.
An AMA Sanctioned Hill Climb will be held at a brand-new location in Canaan, and enthusiasts can enjoy the scenic ride to the climb from the Gypsy Tour that morning. Visitors can also take in the bike shows, swap meets, blessings and street action on Lakeside Avenue. The 89th Loudon Classic at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway includes Super Bike and Short Track races to end the rally with a bang!
"We look forward to showing our visitors a great time, and showcasing the amazing beauty and great people of New Hampshire," said Jennifer Anderson, director of Laconia Motorcycle Week.
