Most of us in the New Year were hoping to be able to get back to our normal routine and motorcycle events in 2021. Arizona Bike week just announced they will be postponing their 25th annual bike fest to April 2022.
Bike week was rescheduled to October last year as bike week fell in the midst of the pandemic and shutdowns. The promoters did everything they could in 2020 to continue the tradition of bike week and to be in compliance with state health regulators. Unfortunately, the cost and attendance being down most likely played a factor in their decision to reschedule to 2022.
Safety is always in the back of the minds of promoters, but the experience is what brings bikers back each year. Attendees knew things would be different, but some of restrictions just didn’t give you the bike week experience.
This being the 25th anniversary of Arizona Bike Week is a monumental year for a rally and promoters felt that they would rather hold off on the 25th celebration until such time as they can hold the type of bike week they want.
Our hope is that riders will continue to go down to the Scottsdale Arizona and ride the magestic mountains and small rustic towns that depend on the motorcycle dollars to survive. There is so much to do in Arizona in the springtime. For other ideas, we did a piece last year of fun things to do in April, click here to read more.
