The Laconia Motorcycle Week, also known as Laconia Bike Week, has its roots dating back to 1916 with a few hundred bikers meeting at The Weirs (aka Weirs Beach). Six years later the Gypsy Tour starting in Loudon, New Hampshire and passing through Laconia kicked off the official Laconia Motorcycle Week in the following year of 1924. Making it one of the oldest Motorcycle Events in the United States.
Its popularity grew in the 1990's as the Motorcycle Community flurished. There's no doubt to what draws people here every year though. Between the lush national parks with camping, hiking, sight-seeing and the beautiful Highways and Byways Laconia is a dream to Motorcyclist everywhere.
In the last 90 years it has also grown to be one of the largest Motorcycle Events in the Nation and is part of the "Big Four". It averages around 400,000 motorcyclist over the week long biker party and will continue to grow. Be sure not to miss this world-class event in New England.
