Arizona Bike Week

Time to start thinking of next year's rides

Thanks Brent, my son turns 18 on the 5th. It may be tough for me but I will try, would love to make a ride out west before it gets to hot here.

I've been told April is a really good month to ride in AZ. Before it gets so hot.

I go just about every year. It's a nice event, but you gotta pay to even see the vendors.
Pre-rally is March 28 to April 1. The Rally is April 2 thru 6.
The Hideaway is always a zoo during Bike Week. Lots of fun, but parking fills up quickly. There are other good spots in Cave Creek: Buffalo Chip, Harrold's, Tap Haus.
Scottsdale Harley usually has stuff going on. Same with Chester's. Buddy Stubbs has a nice museum.
ZZ Top is one of the main concerts this year.

We ride here year 'round, so April is a good month. But, it can already be hot by then too. There are lots of great rides up north, so it's easy to head to higher elevation for the day.

Well I plan on being there every day as of now. So I am willing to meet whenever it is best for eveybody else. This is a great idea worth doing. I could not make the Sharkweek event, I just got my Glide and was out of money then. But I sure would like to put some faces to screen names. One thing, if you go on the charity ride, you usually get into that day's event for free.

I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself.--DH Lawerence

Yeah, there will be a lot going on that week: AZ Bike Week at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Phx Bikefest down at Wild Horse Pass and the Cave Creek Rally in Cave Creek.

Concerts haven't been announced for Phx Bike Fest yet, but the headliner entertainment will not conflict with Az Bike Week which will make it possible to do both.

Here's a blurb from Barry at Cyclerides about the Bikefest:
One of the highlights of the event that I think is really cool will be Arizona’s first-ever “ride-through bar,” serving as gateway entry to the event that naturally creates a parade of arriving bikes, which onlookers can enjoy throughout the day. You will enter the venue and follow an asphalt road made specifically for entry into the venue that will take you through the bar where you will get your picture taken and emailed to you for free. You will ride through the bar, go park, and come back to enjoy the fun. There will be live music, food and drink in the bar with tiered level seating and a bar rail for people to stand and watch the bikes roll through from the different rides coming in from around the valley. There will also be open seating on both sides with tables, chairs and umbrellas that will create an even longer line of onlookers that I’m sure will be needed. Can’t wait to see this in action!
