Motorcycle riding season is upon us and there are a ton of upcoming events that riders and their families can attend. From bike blessings to bike shows and safety classes, there’s something for everyone in the motorcycle community. Here are some upcoming events across the Midwest that you don’t want to miss.
Ant Hill Mob Bike Show (April 23) -- This bike show takes place in Manitowoc, WI, at the Manitowoc County Expo Center. This year’s event features “Decades of Thunder,” a special showcase of antique bikes, as well as a dance with live music. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Paws 4 Laws and Prevent Suicide-Manitowoc.
Accident Scene Management Classes (April 30 and May 14) -- Founded by Vicki Sanfelipo, Accident Scene Management (ASM)/Road Guardians was created to help bikers learn motorcycle trauma training so they can help others after a motorcycle accident and stay safe on the road. Classes take place throughout the Midwest, and the world, and fill up quickly. Hupy and Abraham has supported ASM since its inception and many of the upcoming classes in Wisconsin will feature attorneys from the firm giving information on what to do after an accident and how to choose the best motorcycle insurance coverage. To see a list of upcoming classes and to sign up, visit roadguardians.org.
Ride Janie Ride (May 1) – This event starts at Illinois Harley-Davidson in Countryside, IL, where a 50-mile, fully escorted ride takes off at 11 a.m. The ride ends at the CD & ME event venue in Frankfort, IL. Ride Janie Ride helps raise money for people that are battling cancer to “help to alleviate the financial burden of cancer treatments.” An after-party will feature food, music and vendors. You don’t have to ride to attend!
Road Runners Bike Blessing (May 1) -- The original bike blessing is back again this year in Oak Creek, WI, at American Legion Post 434. Put on by the Road Runners MC, riders gather to kick off motorcycle riding season and to get their bikes blessed. Featuring food, drinks, live music and vendors, you will not want to miss this celebration attended by thousands from Wisconsin and beyond.
Bikerfest Block Party (May 7) -- This event for the whole family takes place at Fondy Farmers Market in Milwaukee, WI. Featuring vendors, boonie bike races and stunt shows, there’s something for everyone. Part of the goal of this event is to invite members of the local community, that may not be familiar with motorcycling, to see what the riding culture is all about.
ABATE of Wisconsin Awareness Rallies (May 7) -- Members of ABATE of Wisconsin and the public will gather at high-traffic intersections Saturday, May 7, to promote motorcycle awareness to drivers on the road. This is a great chance to get the “Watch for Motorcycles” message out to the public at the beginning of riding season. Employees from Hupy and Abraham will be on site to help spread the message of motorcycle awareness. There will be two locations, one at the Park and Ride at the corner of Moorland Road and I-43 in Waukesha County and one at the intersection of Greenfield Ave. and Hwy. 100 in Milwaukee County.
