Ohio Bike Week is a bike rally that has gone through many changes in it’s 12 years of existence. Now in its second year of holding the event on the streets of downtown Sandusky, it has become an event worth taking a trip to.

The downtown streets were closed to cage traffic and only motorcycles were aloud in the six block area. Two large stages, as well as three smaller stages were set up on different streets so you could enjoy the Jeagermiester stage, then walk over to the Main Stage and there was no crossover of the music.

Other music venues on site were ”The Jack Daniels Barrel House Saloon,” “The Yuengling Saloon,” and “The Mad River Stage.”
Bands from all over the country were on hand this year including “Jackyl” with Jesse Dupree, “KIX”, “L.A. Guns”, “Warrant”, “The Electric Circus Band” and my favorite, the “Iron Cowgirl Missy.”

Other events included bike shows, bike games, motorcycle racing, as well as the usual themed events. It was amazing how the town came together, as well as the local watering holes. It seemed that everyone was having a fantastic time and very kind to all the riders.

The special parking everywhere you went was very cool. A few of my favs were the “Margaritaville Bar”, ”Jimmie Buckketts” and “The Barrel House Salloon”.

“Mad River Harley Davidson” had a huge set up with music, food, and assorted venders. Traffic was intense at times but that's to be expected.
I would definitely suggest this event to anyone who is in the Midwest during the first week of June and want to go to a fantastic week of fun, music, riding and having a really great time.

The Mad Hungarian Rating 7 out of 10 stars
