2019 Myrtle Beach Bike Week Spring Rally

Myrtle Beach Bike Week Spring Rally celebrates its 80th anniversary this May 10-19.

Myrtle Beach Bike Week has taken some hits over the years, but it’s still arguably going stronger than ever. Nothing, not a big recession nor a silly failed attempt at a helmet law can seemingly stop it. In recent years, attendance has been growing steadily as both of those debacles are far in the rearview mirror at this point. And with the 2019 Spring Rally right around the corner (May 10-19 this year), we don’t expect that to change.

This year marks the 80th anniversary of Myrtle Beach Bike Week. So you can bet organizers have some special things up their sleeves to mark that milestone. But all the stuff we love about it remains. The biggest appeal of MBBW is the fact that it is and always has been a riding event. The Grand Strand offers up some awesome scenery to take in. And that beautiful coastline is something bikers have enjoyed since the event officially began way back in 1940.

This year, organizers expect well over 275,000 bikers to attend the Spring rally. And though Myrtle Beach is chock full of hotels, you might have a hard time finding prime accommodations if you haven’t already secured them.

A full list of events hasn’t yet been announced. But you can bet that local favorites like Suck Bang Blow and The Rat Hole will have more than enough activities planned to keep you entertained all week. That is, when you get tired of riding. And if you want to play tourist, there are plenty of attractions around town to partake in, too.
