BIKE WEEK 2015 EVENTS
Founded in 1940 and celebrating its 76th anniversary this year, the Myrtle Beach spring bike rallies have grown into the Grand Strand's biggest annual event with hundreds of thousands of visitors bringing their bikes to the beach each May.
Over the years, as the event has grown more and more places have begun to host their own rallies – individual events marketed by a certain business or promoter.
However all of these individual events, along with countless organized rides, parties, contests, concerts and other events combine to make up what's become one of the top biker events on East Coast.
With the Harley rally and Atlantic Beach Bikefest occurring across three weekends in May, the month has become one of the busiest times of year for the Grand Strand, drawing in well over half a million visitors for these events. Below is a list of some events that will be going on during Bike week.
