Bikefest

Coming this Fall to Colonial Beach on October 9-12, 2014 is BIKEFEST!  This will be the first time that this event takes place here, and plans are underway for it to be an annual gathering, growing in popularity and numbers as the years progress.

All American Harley-Davidson are one of the main sponsors. They along with 97.7 The Rocket radio station had discussed the idea, and I'm so glad they did! I can't wait for this event!

Web design firm Cyberbility and the Chamber of Commerce are also sponsoring along with High Tides, Wilkerson's, HALO, River Terra Retreat and more.

Our area has been and continues to be a favorite destination for bikers,  with the beaches, great waterfront dining spots, tiki bars with live music, boating and fishing activities and many lodging options. Visitors can enjoy a fun stay in our historic riverside resort town.

We even used to be home to The Broken Chain motorcycle shop.

Stay tuned to this page for updates. Contests, music, vendor booths and much more are sure to be a part of the weekend's festivities. We'll be sure to keep you posted!

In the meantime, book your rooms! Accommodations are sure to fill up fast. We have the River Edge Inn for lodging as well as many other waterfront motels, bed and breakfast inns and rental cottages. There are also campgrounds and cabins available, if you're up for that! The Dragstrip and Hall's Supermarket are opening up space for campers. Boaters can dock up to the many transient slips available at our local marinas.
