Greetings from the Outer Banks where the 17th Annual Outer Banks Bike Week is happening this weeks. It’s kind of hard to imagine that it’s been there’s been 17 of them, but checking our memory, yes there has.
If there was any doubt this was bike week the rider who pulled up next to us in Kitty Hawk on a beautiful Triumph Bonneville left no doubt.
They call it a week, but actually, it’s eight days. The first day was today, Saturday, April 20. It wraps up next Saturday—Saturday to Saturday, but that is eight days.
The good news is it looks as though we’re going to have some great weather for the Outer Banks Bike Week. Maybe a few showers on Thursday, and even that does not look like an all day affair. Other than that temporaries in the upper 60s and low 70 and plenty of sunshine.
Guided Tours and Great Music during the Outer Banks Bike Week
There are a couple of really cool rides scheduled this year.
Monday the Graveyard of the Atlantic ride will head down to Hatteras—that’s where the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum is—and back. What makes the ride particularly appealing is crossing the new Marc Basnight Bridge on a bike.The view for the top and the sense of riding high above Oregon Inlet is an experience not to be missed.
We are a bit curious about what the Thursday Mystery ride is as well.
The Outer Banks Bike Week is way more than mystery rides. Look foursome great musical entertainment during the week.
Jonny Waters and Company will be bringing his hard driving country rock sound to a number venues over the week. Local rock duo Gypsea Souls will also be on hand.
It’s looking like a great week.
