Starting as a small gathering of local motorcycle enthusiasts in 1997, Arizona Bike Week has grown to be one of the largest rallies in the country. We attribute the event’s tremendous success to a number of factors. First there’s the incredible riding weather and virtually limitless scenic terrain Arizona has to offer. Then there’s the plethora of places to go and things to do in the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Add to that the biker-friendly attitude of our great state and you’ve got all the basic elements needed to throw a tremendous rally.
