Sturgis 2022 is quickly approaching – and trust us, you don’t want to miss it.
If you’re planning to attend this famous motorcycle rally, you might be wondering how to prep. Keep reading to learn more about preparing for Sturgis and how to make the most of your trip.
When to Arrive and Depart
Sturgis 2022 begins on August 5th and ends on August 14th. But the official bike rally is only part of the experience.
Pre-rally parties will start on August 1st and continue through the 4th until the official start of Sturgis. If you want the full experience, you might consider arriving before the official start of the motorcycle rally to take part in the legendary pre-rally festivities.
If you can only stay for a couple of days, don’t worry. You’ll still have the experience of a lifetime.
Where to Stay
If you haven’t booked a hotel or campground for Sturgis 2022, you should do so ASAP.
Prices will continue to rise as the motorcycle rally gets closer. Accommodations close to downtown Sturgis tend to sell out.
If you want to keep the party going each night after the bike rally, you’ll want to stay close by. But if you’re looking for peace and quiet, you should consider hotels outside of Downtown.
Be prepared for rate increases during the week of the motorcycle rally. You can save money by sharing a room or booking a campsite over a hotel.
What to Pack
It’s always a good idea to check the weather before you travel anywhere and Sturgis is no exception. You should prepare for temperature changes and pack layers as well as rain gear since most events will be outside.
Be sure to leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs, as you’ll likely find some cool stuff you want to take home to remember Sturgis 2022.
You should also pack everything you need to have a safe and comfortable trip. This includes your helmet, earplugs, and travel supplies. We recommend traveling with a first aid kit, emergency contact info, and repair tools.
When preparing for Sturgis, you have the option of riding your bike, trailing it, or renting a bike. However you travel, make sure your ride is in good condition before you take off and fill up on gas before you leave.
