Day Ride to Laconia Bike Week
June 14 @ 9:30 AM - 7:00 PM EDT
Friday June 14 (Yes the day before PRIDE PORTLAND) we are taking a day ride out to Laconia and Weir’s Beach for a ram packed tour around the area.
OK folks, here’s the plan:
Meet in the CVS Parking lot, 870 Main St. Westbrook at 9:15 AM. Kickstands up at 9:30. In order to make a little time we will be taking I-95 to Biddeford; there will be a toll to get on, so please bring EZ-Pass or cash. From Biddeford we will travel Route 111 to 202, which will take us to Rochester, NH where we will stop for gas/coffee/rest. From Rochester we’ll take Route 11 up to Alton, where we’ll pick up Route 140, which will take us to 106 and down to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
We’ll arrive at the racetrack shortly after noon, and spend a couple of hours there; Harley-Davidson, Yamaha, and Slingshot will be offering demo rides and there will be vendors, food, etc.
From NHMS we’ll head north up 106 to Laconia and Weirs beach, arriving there sometime around 3:00-3:30 PM. Vendors, music, food, people watching and bikes abound at Weirs. The day will get a little loose at that point as people may have different agendas/schedules. I plan to stay at Weirs until about 5:30; others may wish to leave earlier or stay longer. If a 5:30 departure does not work for you but you prefer not to ride alone, reach out to me or someone else in the group and you may be able to buddy up with someone whose schedule is similar. The tradition is, “No one rides alone at Laconia”.
Please click the “GOING” button if you plan to go. I’d really like to have a sense of how many we will be ahead of time. You can also reply, comment, or PM me if you have any questions.
Shiny side up, all!
