Myrtle Beach Bike Week is one of the biggest biking events on the eastern seaboard, usually drawing hundreds of thousands of bikers from across the country and beyond.
Despite attendance being down last year, it’s hoped that this year’s event will be more like those of previous years. Whatever the final attendance figures, those who go are sure to have a fantastic week of biking in beautiful South Carolina scenery.
In this guide, we’ll take a look at the scheduled dates of the festival and what you can expect. Ready to learn more? Read on!
When Is Myrtle Beach Bike Week?
Last year, the pandemic and travel restrictions meant that the Bike Week had to be pushed back to July, but thankfully, that is not the case this year. At the time of writing, the 2021 Spring Beach Rally will be held from May 7-16.
While these times are subject to change, it is unlikely that the event will be pushed back this year.
What Is the Spring Beach Rally Like?
First and foremost, the Bike Week is all about community. It’s a great place to make new friends and meet up with old ones from biker communities across the US.
South Carolina’s entire Grand Strand plays host to the rally and always puts on a great range of things to do. There are 60 miles of coastline that get involved, which means you can see different stunning scenery every single day, all with its own collection of unique bars, hotels, and events.
An as-yet unconfirmed lineup of vendors will be plying their trade selling great food and brilliant merch for the event. There will also be live music, and more.
Is It a Riding Event?
The Bike Week is all about community and brotherhood, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of riding too. The Spring Beach Rally is classed as a riding event.
On May 12, there will be a 180-mile escorted ride for Veterans and Biker Awareness, which costs $15 per bike or $20 with a passenger. By taking part, you’ll have the opportunity to win $500, too. The ride starts out at Garden City Beach, before the riders head south for around 90 miles, then return back to Garden City Beach.
For a ride this long, comfort is key. We’d recommend that you use a Wild Ass saddle to promote blood flow, reduce shock and pain, and make the whole trip more enjoyable.
Where Should I Stay?
If you’re not from the Grand Strand area, you’ll need to find somewhere to stay. In this area, you’re spoiled for choice! If you want to pay back the Bike Week’s sponsors, you can stay in a range of accommodations including the Beach Cove Resort, hotel BLUE, Caravelle Resort, and Elliott Beach Rentals.
