#97 underway!

Sunshine, fun, social distancing, racing and riding were the theme of the first weekend of Laconia Motorcycle Week. As expected, there was less motorcycle activity on Lakeside Avenue, the epicenter of our Rally, but still plenty of riding here and everywhere else in the state. It seems like everyone took our advice of less congregating and more riding and we thank you all for that. Close to 100 people participated in Monday’s Mae West Memorial Ride benefiting local animal shelters and the NH Humane Society, proof that the spirit of giving is alive and well here in Laconia!

Action at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

The action at New Hampshire Motor Speedway kicked off on Saturday with the U.S. Classic Racing Association’s FIM North American Vintage Championships. Many took advantage of the camping options at the speedway and the track was alive with the sounds of an active track all weekend long. Racing continues this Saturday with the 976th Annual Loudon Classic, the longest-running motorcycle race in the U.S.

We’re seeing the benefits of an August rally with loads of sunshine and a forecast full of heat and humidity. From what we’ve witnessed, everyone’s been cognizant and respectful of the state’s COVID-related safety measures. The bars and restaurants are busy, but less packed in deference to social distancing guidelines. Live music continues all week at local favorites like the NASWA Resort and Tower Hill Tavern. The Weirs shuttle train and M/S Mount Washington are geared up to guide you around Lake Winnipesaukee, the miles of scenic riding are waiting for you to explore . . . and we’re just getting started!

Stay Safe!

Any/all updates will be posted to, through their e-newsletter and on all LaconiaMCWeek social media channels.
