It looks like the month-long May schedule for various biker events is going to happen since none of the parties involved can resolve to a more limited schedule. Read more here.
First Report: The headline might be a little confusing, but coming on March 2nd and 3rd will be another Myrtle Beach Bike Week....held in Florence.
According to Myrtle Beach Alternatives, this Bike Week is expected to be the "the largest family-friendly motorcycle event in the Florence, S.C. area." But, what is the Myrtle Beach Bike Week West?
via MBBWW website:
The Myrtle Beach Bike Week West™ “Motorcycle Expo” is estimating over 100 vendors including Vintage Motorcycle Displays, Seminars, Live Entertainment, Drag Bike Displays, Ride in Bike Show, Stunt Riders, Custom Builders, The Marketplace – Vendors Mall, Used Motorcycle Parts Corral, Used Motorcycles for Sale plus much more.
Event organizers are hoping to catch bikers on their way down to Daytona, and it should have little to no effect on the Myrtle Beach economy.
With the name "Myrtle Beach" being sullied in recent years when it comes to biker rallies, why would event organizers choose that name? Why not "The Florence Spring Bike Weekend Rally?" As The Sun News Opinion Blog puts it, "Who’s up for a Charleston Spoleto Festival North?"
