Bike Week officials expect about 250,000 fans from New England and beyond to travel through New Hampshire during the week. If you’re one of those enthusiasts, we’ve got your Laconic Bike Week lodging all taken care of.
With no registration required for the events, organizers said it’s hard to determine an exact head count, but officials determine attendance estimates by using data on the number of riders who pass through the area tollbooths.
Bike Week is the oldest and biggest rally in the country, with the first being held back in 1916. Historically, it was met with some opposition from residents living around Lake Winnipesaukee, but those protests have subsided over the years.
The event brings huge economic opportunities to New Hampshire. More than $100 million is expected to be spent on restaurants, tolls, liquor sales, and Laconic Bike in NH Week lodging, while hundreds of thousands more are likely to be raised for various charitable groups.
Older Riders Taking Part
According to information from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statisticsmotorcycle ownership has been leaning toward an older crowd lately. This data has prompted companies like Harley-Davidson to rebrand themselves to focus more on younger people and women.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles are not cheap, but they’re often viewed as masculinity at its finest, consequently catering to the older, baby-boomers. Older riders seem to prefer Harley-Davidson-type bikes, while younger riders lean toward racing- and sport-style bikes.
The types of bikes that roll into Laconia – and the types of riders on them – can vary.The weekends bring more young people because they are technically off work, and that comes with the arrival of younger riders at the week’s events and at bars. It also provides a boost to Laconia Bike Week lodging in the area.
With 250,000 expected to be using New Hampshire roadways, state and local police are taking an active role in ensuring everyone’s safety.The motorcycle unit will be escorting riders as they start the week on Saturday while also watching for excessive speed and impaired driving throughout Bike Week.
They will also be monitoring more of the roads that come in and out of the Weirs Beach area because that’s where some of the worst accidents have taken place.
Bike Week is not just a tradition of New Hampshire; it’s really an opportunity to showcase who the people of the area are.
