Laconia Bike Week

Laconia, New Hampshire
June 8 to 16, 2013

Laconia Motorcycle Week General Info

The Laconia rally is held each year during Father's Day Weekend in June in the beautiful Lake Region of New Hampshire, and the 2013 event will be the 90th Anniversary of Laconia. The bike week is considered the oldest motorcycle event in the US. It is also one of what refers to as the "Big 3" rallies (the others are Sturgis Biker Rally and Daytona Bike Week), and it is on the 2013 Lightning Customs' Major Biker Rallies List.

The motorcycle rally’s origin was in 1916 when a few hundred motorcycle enthusiasts gathered at Weirs Beach. In 1917 Laconia became an officially recognized Gypsy Tour event. Gypsy Tours were the beginning of modern day motorcycle rallies where motorcycle enthusiasts would gather for races, hill climbs, field events, other festivities, and to enjoy company of other riders. Early races and hill climbs in Laconia have grown to become the modern day Motorcycle Week.

Laconia Bike Rally Attractions

The 2013 events will start to be announced in January 2013, but since it is the 90th anniversary you will find that the promoters will be aiming for bigger and better. Festivities happen all around the Laconia area, and especially at Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee, and at the Lobster Pound tent. The below 2012 events will give you a good idea of what to expect at the 2013 event.

Laconia has a rich history in racing, so you will see hill climbs, short track races, the Loudon Classic road race, U.S. Legend Cars International (cars powered by motorcycle engines), and other races. Another big part of the Laconia bike week's history are the rides like the Gypsy Tour rides, charity rides, other guided rides, and unguided rides through the beautiful NH area.

As one of the largest motorcycle events in the country, the Motorcycle Week will have top name music acts (in 2012 Crosby, Stills and Nash, and Sugarland played), and bike shows like the Charity Bike-Build Show and Raffle, Ride-In Bike Show, Laconia Bike Show, Custom Bike Show, and Vintage Motorcycle Show.
