Bikers on the Move to Bullhead City/Laughlin Run

MojaveDailyNews.com-BULLHEAD CITY — The thrumming of motorcycle engines was audible across Bullhead City Saturday morning. 

The bikes stayed on the move in those early hours though some were seen parked at local restaurants and other establishments.

Bullhead Community Park, site of the Bullhead City Bike Rally, wasn’t as teemed with the two-wheelers as it has been in the past, but Chris Barton expected that to pick up as the weather held up.

Barton, executive director of the Bullhead Area Chamber of Commerce, said the event, now in its third year, had a record 30 vendors signed on. They were spread across both the park and the chamber parking lot.

The event was previously known as the Bullhead City Bike Fest. Barton said the name was changed to reflect organizers’ desire to have the community “rally around” the event, and have visiting bikers visit multiple destinations.

New this year was an extreme toy show featuring ATVs, just as the off-roading season takes off.

Barton said she hopes to see recreational vehicles and automobiles added next year.

The rally featured a variety of food offerings, from barbecue to caramel corn and homemade ice cream.

“There’s a little something for everybody’s appetite,” Barton said.

Close to 100 volunteers, mostly chamber members, helped run the event, Barton said. Sponsors included law firm Lerner and Rowe, Murphy Broadcasting, Budweiser and Arizona Performance Cycle.

While the park was fairly light on traffic Saturday, there was still fun to be had.

Malcolm Lawrence of Wildomar, Calif. said his group had so much fun at last year’s Bike Fest and Laughlin River Run that they returned.
