Plan For Americade - -It's Almost Here

Whether you’re an avid biker, a weekend warrior or simply a fan of motorcycles, the annual Americade Motorcycle Rally from June 2-7, 2014 is a killer “motorcation” destination this June. One of the world's largest multi-brand motorcycle tours, this event is an ideal excuse for you and your pals to explore the Adirondacks on and off the bike, rub shoulders with other riders, and witness amazing shows and demonstrations.

Here are just a few of the exciting activities happening this year:

Adirondack Adventures:

By air, land and sea, you can explore the Adirondacks on four fantastic adventures. From flying high on a private plane tour and gently lifting off in a beautiful hot air balloon, to saddling up for a horseback ride or ziplining through the largest aerial treetop adventure park in the US, Americade offers impressive escapades throughout the Adirondacks.

Factory Demos and TourExpo:

Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki and more offer factory demos and displays creating the perfect opportunity to learn about the bikes you dream about. Talk to the experts or take the opportunity for a test ride. At the Tour Expo see hundreds of vendors who sell every accessory, gadget and aftermarket product available.

Demo manufacturers include:

Can-Am Spyder
Champion Trikes
Lehman Trikes
Motor Trike
Ural Motorcycles (TourExpo Beach)

Off The Bike:

Americade offers more activities than any other motorcycle rally, many of which can be enjoyed off the bike. Among the most popular activities are the catered boat cruises on Lake George, the professional rodeo at the Painted Pony Ranch with a Texas-style barbeque, and the comedy shows with Alonzo Bodden – winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing, and an avid motorcyclist. Evenings are also full of fun with lights, frights and bites with spectacular fireworks, ghost tours and desserts.

Scenic Tours:

New York is home to 10,000 miles of some of the most incredible scenic driving routes and byways, and what better way to experience these incredible off-the-beaten-path landmarks, natural wonders, and attractions than on the back of a bike? For those who ride, choose from a variety of Non-Guided Mini Tours and Guided MiniTours that take you on the best low traffic and winding scenic routes in the Lake George region and Adirondacks. No matter the path - Adirondack Trail, Olympic Trail, North Fork Trail - all lead to unforgettable escapes.

Thrill Shows:

The thrilling Stunt Shows and the Wall of Death will have you sweating with every turn, trick and jump. Incredible and death-defying stunts will be performed by the Brigade FMX team, Swoop Stunt Riders, The Central Florida Motorcycle Drill Team and Circus Una, an all- female, motorcycle-high-wire-trapeze-aerial-thrill-act, throughout the week. Be sure to witness the Daredevils Unlimited's Wall of Death motorcycle stunt show with acts such as the "Dips and Dives of Death” and “ShotGun Ride," – all mere inches from where you stand.
