Off The Bike

Americade offers more activities than any other motorcycle rally, most of which take place on your motorcycle. In addition, there are many popular fun activities that riders enjoy off of their bike. Here's a few of them.

Among Americade's most popular activities are the catered boat cruises on Lake George, the professional rodeo at the Painted Pony Ranch (with a delicious Texas-style barbeque), and the comedy shows with Alonzo Bodden (Winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing, a regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and an avid motorcyclist).

Each year, Americade offers a variety of dinners, fireworks, and much more! Come, enjoy Americade, whether on or off the bike, we have something for everyone.

Off-The-Bike activities take place on Monday through Saturday of Americade Week.
