This year is the 90th annual Laconia Motorcycle Week, one of the first and most enduring rallys for motorcycle enthusiasts. Laconia Bike week celebrates rides of all kinds, from hogs to crotch rockets to Triumphs, choppers, trikes, BWs, and everything in between. There are a variety of events in towns all over New Hampshire, but we at the Green Granite are especially excited about the Rally in the Valley events that tie in to Laconia Bike Week.
Things will kick off at Hillbillies Barbecue in North Conway on June 8th 8:30-11:30PM, and for the next week there will be plenty of guided scenic rides through the picturesque White Mountains, live music, poker tournaments, a tattoo contest, breakfasts, and one fun wrap up party.
One of the best events is the annual Ride to the Sky. Bikers can take to the beautiful Mount Washington Auto Road, which extends from New Hampshire Route 16 in Pinkham Notch to the summit of Mount Washington. The road climbs 4,618 ft and is spectacular riding, with curves, turns, and spectacular views. The Ride to the Sky gives motorcycles rule of the road, with Monday, June 10 and Thursday, June 13 designated bike-only.
This is one of the most popular events of the year in North Conway, and if you’ve never experienced Laconia Motorcycle Week for yourself, you don’t want to miss out!
