Muskegon Bike Time: An insider's perspective

Muskegon Bike Time: An insider's perspective

That was me, coming off the stage last year at Bike Time. 

As the summer heats up, so do the activities in Muskegon, as Bike Time is in the final stages of being set up and pulled off for another year. 

The Bike Time story started off like many others: a couple guys were sitting around and said "you know a motorcycle rally would be fun..." and so it began seven years ago.

Muskegon Bike Time returns with national act July 18

MUSKEGON, Mich.—Muskegon Bike Time is back!

The weekend-long celebration will take over downtown July 19 through July 21.  Events include a July 18 kick-off performance by MINI KISS—a KISS tribute band made up of little people.    In 2010, MINI KISS was featured in Dr. Pepper’s Super Bowl Sunday commercial, which aired all year.  The band has been featured on A&E Network TV, TBS, HBO and other channels.  The live entertainment begins at 6 p.m. inside the tent at 6th Street and Western Avenue.  MINI KISS will take the stage at 9 p.m.

More than 60,000 motorcycle enthusiasts are expected to fill Muskegon for Bike Time. Thousands of bikes will line Western Avenue, which is renamed “Steel Horse Alley” for the event.  Visitors can also check out vendor booths, enjoy food and drink and watch non-stop entertainment.
