June 9-17, 2018 Progressive Laconia Motorcycle Week
Progressive Laconia Motorcycle Week® 2018
Continuing the Countdown to 100!
Progressive Laconia Motorcycle Week® – Celebrating the 95th Anniversary!
June 9th-17th, 2018 – New Hampshire – home to America’s Original Riding Rally®
If you can only choose one National Rally to attend in 2017 – choose the one you have to ride the furthest to! And if riding is your pleasure then we hope you’ll be joining us for Laconia Motorcycle Week® in 2018 because In Laconia… We Ride®! Although our legacy as the World’s Oldest Motorcycle Rally® is because our gypsy tour began in 1916, our legacy has continued because of our unmatched scenic riding throughout the beautiful State of New Hampshire. Residents and businesses alike, welcome motorcyclists during the Rally every year in June. With the 2nd largest demographic of motorcycle riders in the country and host to the oldest Rally in the country, NH opens its doors to motorcycle enthusiasts all year long!
Now that you’ve heard about the welcoming atmosphere and beautiful riding, let’s talk about events – we’ve got them all covered! Be sure to check out the racing action at the NH Motor Speedway in Loudon, the Hill Climbs in Canaan, and various other races and stunt shows throughout the area. Looking for the street scene – check out Lakeside Avenue where motorcycles line the street as far as the eye can see and people-watching is at its all-time best! Looking for a new view? Make sure you plan a ride to the Mount Washington Auto Road. The road up the highest peak in the northeast (6,288ft) will show you a view like no other! The Auto Road is closed for motorcycles ONLY on Monday and Thursday of the Rally! Charity rides like the Peter Makris Memorial Ride and Mae West Memorial Ride for Pets are two great examples of the kind of giving-back that Laconia does for its area! Charity rides and events occur throughout the week so make sure to take part!
Bike shows of all kinds, swap meets, poker runs, gypsy tours, contests, vendors, live music, and of course- beautiful riding is just some of what you can expect at Laconia. Hot spots like the Laconia Roadhouse, the Naswa Resort, the Winnipesaukee Marketplace, Patio Garden Restaurant and many more will keep you busy after you return from a long day of riding.
