Top 10 Motorcycle Rallies of the Summer
9. West Virginia MountainFest – July 27 -31
MountainFest might not be as well-known as others on the list, but it’s a gem of a rally held in beautiful Morgantown, West Virginia. They call it the “Wild and Wonderful Mountainfest Motorcycle Rally” for good reason. Between the roads and scenery, the area offers incredible riding opportunities.
One of the coolest things about MountainFest is it’s a non-profit organization that’s contributed over $500,000 to charitable causes in its community. Gotta love a rally with a reason.
West Virginia MountainFest 2016 has a killer musical lineup, with Montgomery Gentry, Buckcherry, Aaron Lewis, KIX, Ray Scott, Moccasin Creek and more scheduled to perform. The Coal Bucket Saloon will be hopping with its own busy schedule of live entertainment and adult contests spearheaded by rally regular Jack Schit. Chris Callen and the Cycle Source crew are holding a Ride In Custom Bike Show and hosting biker games. The MountainFest entertainment schedule also includes The Ives Brothers “Wall of Death,’ Micro Wrestling Federation and Girls of Thunder Model Search.
If you’ve never ridden in West Virginia, MountainFest gives you a reason to check out what the state has to offer. You’ll be glad you did.
