Laconia Bike Week
It’s more than a T-shirt!
No matter where you are in New Hampshire, there’s always a national
park close by. The roads, the rolling hills, the lakes, the forests all make
us want to ride with or without a helmet. Being in Eastern Canada we
are privileged to be close to this event.
Since 1923, Laconia is the June Rendez-Vous. It’s the oldest and it’s
one of the biggest biker gatherings of all. Year after year 375,000
peoples attend the event that took place from June 9 to 17.
There are more and more tourist attractions in the region. The organizers
try to spread out the activities outside of Weirs Beach to accommodate
the growing crowds.

Building allows the Canadian champion to compete with the best builders in the world.
The temperature was perfect for the event which for the most part was held outdoor. Unfortunately

with, like Alberta’s Kuhl’s Customs, Poorboyz Chopperz, Precision Frameworkx,
