You’ll be as happy as a H.O.G. if you plan to hit the open road to Myrtle Beach on your motorcycle for the Myrtle Beach Fall Bike Week 2017, taking place September 29th – October 8th, 2017.
Why? Our coastline is still happily warmed by the summer sun – even in October – which means it’s the perfect setting for a bike ride outdoors alongside the hundreds of fellow Harley owners that rumble into town on two wheels.
But it’s not just about the journey during the annual Myrtle Beach Fall Bike Week, it’s also about the Harley-friendly pit stops in between, where you can throw your kickstand down and kick back, throw back a cold one, refuel with some grub and shop for all the latest gear and memorabilia. Here are some popular hangouts we humbly suggest:
Cruise the 90 miles of the North Loop throughout North Myrtle Beach and Little River, and stop at hotspots, such as the Harley Shop at the Beach dealership; Barefoot Landing for a host of vendors, including the House of Blues’ Throttle Fest; Harley’s Roadhouse; 17 Customs; and a lineup of biker bars on the Little River waterfront, like Patio’s Tiki Bar and Grill, Key West Crazy and more.
And save time (and mileage) for a long cruise along the anchoring South Loop, which extends from Myrtle Beach into Murrells Inlet and farther south into Georgetown. Stop off Highway 501 and park at the Myrtle Beach Speedway, Boathouse on the Waterway, Magoo’s and Ron Jon’s Burgers. Turn east toward the beach and travel south on Highway 17, where you’ll want to make a pit stop at the Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson, Jamin’ Leather (on 17 Bypass) and continue on to the mouth of Murrells Inlet, where the streets practically close down for the rally, music stages and vendors – and you can walk from bar to bar, including the legendary Suck Bang Blow, the Beaver Bar and Coastal Victory Motorcycles. The waterfront Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk is a must, as well as the waterfront Harbor Walk in Georgetown – two landmarks worthy of the views and brews.
If you’re up for an extra challenge, sign up for the free Bike Week Myrtle Beach Fall Rally “Cruise the Loop Poker Run” that officially starts at Suck Bang Blow at 10 a.m. October 5, 2017.
