OC Bike Fest at the Inlet starts tomorrow

The Ocean City Bike Festival is something that every bike enthusiast will want to attend. From the stellar bike shows to the seaside dining, the OC Bike Fest will be one of the best bike attractions you’ve ever visited if early reports are true. It coincides with the Delmarva Bike Rally nearby, which draws thousands of spectators and participants. Even if you’re not crazy about bikes, Bike Week might be the jump start that gets you involved in an amazing new hobby. 

Ocean City events are often big and always loud but the Bike Festival in Ocean City is fueled by adrenaline, as is evidenced in the Adrenaline Crew Motorcycle Stunt Show. The Adrenaline Crew are pure, raw stuntmen doing their best to bring out a killer show for the spectators. You may want to bring your camera with you and get this on film! The Original Ball of Steel is a stunt team comprised of two of the youngest stuntmen in the world, Kyle and Cody Ives. Combined with the power of Harley Davidson, these two boys put on a spellbinding show. They have some of the most impressive motocross and freestyling shows in the country, something that they owe to years of traveling around the world and learning the tricks of the trade. The Loaded Gun Customs are known for their high-quality bike gear in Ocean City and beyond, as they’ve been featured on the Discovery Channel. Another personalized and well known bike shop is BMS Choppers. They’ve been custom designing parts since the 1990s. 

Circus Una is another great attraction of the Ocean City Bike Festival that you don’t want to miss. This show is completely female. They do all of their own stunts, from standing upside down on a motorcycle seat to riding a bike across a thin wire suspended high in the air. It’s a hot, one-of-a-kind show. It’s even more enjoyable to view the spectacle at night when the motorcycles are lit with LEDs. 

The festival will be supplemented not just by bikes, but also by music. Check out some of these bands that will be playing the festival: Blue Oyster Cult, The Guess Who, Rare Earth, Bike Mike “100% Biker Blues” Griffin, Second Helping (a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute), Red White and Crue – Motley Crue tribute, Poison’d – Poison tribute, Cherry People, and The Cheaters. 

There will also be a Mikey Teutal original painting auction held during the festival. His brilliant seaside colors and artful interpretations of the ocean will be sold off to one lucky consumer. Could it be you? 

From the small independent boutique motels to the chain hotels, Ocean City hotels are located all over the seaside area, and there are plenty to choose from. However, remember to get reservations well ahead of time during the Bike Festival. This is a crowded time and it’s a good idea to have your room booked beforehand.

This is the first year Ocean City officially joins the Bike Week fray, and they’re not pulling out any stops. With tickets costing just $15 to come and go as you please during the event’s four days, it has the schedule and the flexibility to keep riders coming back and back and back.

Sand, sea and surf may have nothing on a Harley Davidson, but the two sure do have a way of complimenting each other.
