Motorcycle Rallies & Events
Some of the biggest events we have revolve around the gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts known as Myrtle Beach Bike Weeks. Each year tens of thousands of bikers descend on the Grand Strand to celebrate big engines and beautiful bikes. Some love to go fast, others love the freedom of riding with no restraints, and some get their kicks from the deep tones of custom exhaust, but one thing they all share is the desire to have a good time. Luckily there are plenty of ways to do that during the bike weeks in Myrtle Beach including lots of nightlife, live music, poker runs, group rides, motorcycle rodeos and plenty more. So if motorcycles and fun on the beach are your thing, it’s time to start booking your vacation — this place fills up!
Myrtle Beach Bike Week
The sound of thousands of Harleys roaring into town is unmistakable to any local who has been around for this annual event. Taking place each May, the rally features contests, live music up and down the coast, rides, meet-ups, and more.
Atlantic Beach Bikefest
Atlantic Beach Bikefest takes place Memorial Day Weekend each year. Motorcycle enthusiasts come from all over the country for a long weekend at the beach. Events take place throughout the Grand Strand.
Myrtle Beach Bike Week Fall Rally
For those who can’t get enough of riding motorcycles along the Grand Strand, or those who can’t make it to the spring gathering, the fall rally is the perfect excuse to head to Myrtle Beach and spend some time with others who enjoy similar things. Not quite as large as the earlier event, but the weather will still be great, and the camaraderie as good as ever.
