Russ Brown Attorney News: Time for Laconia Motorcycle Week!
New Hampshire, a beautiful state in the country’s northeast where one can visit beaches on the Atlantic Ocean, witness the splendor of mountains as well as enjoy a sunny day by the lake. Starting on June the 8th, one will also be able to witness the rumble of motorcycles as the 90th annual rally known as the Progressive Insurance Laconia Motorcycle Week kicks off in Laconia, New Hampshire. One of the oldest motorcycle rallies in the country, Laconia is celebrating 90 years this year and there will be plenty happening from the 8th to the 16th to mark this special this milestone.
Centered in Weir Beach in the city of Laconia, New Hampshire, the Rally hosts all kinds of riders and all kinds of motorcycles. Dubbed “America’s Original Riding Rally”, Laconia offers a great riding experience, great vendors, great food, drink and great camaraderie.
This year’s event kicks off with the Naswa’s Peter Makris Memorial Run. Named after the Naswa resort’s now deceased owner and originator of the run, the “Official Kick off for the Rally” continues to raise money for the local fire department and veterans. A scenic ride around Lake Winnipesaukee is escorted by State police and even features an antique fire truck. It’s an all day boat and bike party that features concerts, build offs and a plethora of vendors.
The organizers at Laconia encourage motorcycle riders to get out there and explore not only the Greater Laconia Area, but Greater New England Area as well. In addition to touring around Lake Winnipesaukee, you can take a cruise up Mount Washington, the Northeast’s tallest peak, standing 6,288 ft. tall, take in the magnificent views along the sea—there is plenty to see whichever ride you choose.
If you like thrills and speed, be sure to head over to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The track will be featuring motorcycle flat track, short track, vintage and SuperBike races that are sure to wow the crowd. Held daily, be sure to set aside some time to check ‘em out! The AMA Sanctioned Pro Hill Climbs return to the Canaan area and are a sure bet for the adrenaline junkie. Take in the pro riders as they push their machines to the limit up the steep inclines of the region.
If a more organized ride is your thing, Gypsy Rides will guide you around the area with scenic tours and will also make stops at the Hill Climbs and the racetrack. There are other tours as well including poker runs and charity rides..
One of the oldest and largest rallies, the Progressive Insurance Laconia Motorcycle Rally is truly a state wide event and offers something for everyone. Interested in going? Check out lodging info, itineraries and more at http://www.laconiamcweek.com to learn all you need to know!
