Today's Kick Start Party helps rev up ten days of motorcycle madness for the seventh annual Ohio Bike Week
throughout Erie County. Geared for Harley enthusiasts, the rally pimps bike safety, with vendors, contests, and races scheduled through mid-June. A roster of classic-rock and redneck rebels also helps. Ted Nugent will hold court tomorrow night, followed by Travis Tritt on Sunday. Ekoostik Hookah claims the stage on Monday, with Jimmy Van Zant taking it over on Tuesday. And on Wednesday, Florida daredevil Rhett Rhotten will try to break a Guinness record by riding at least 12,000 laps on a circular "wall of death," a feat that hasn't been matched since 1987. Gates open at 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays and 8 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, June 15, at Roeder Harley-Davidson, 5316 Milan Road (State Route 250) in Sandusky. Tickets are $10 to $100. Call 419-621-1046 or visit www.ohiobikeweek.com
for a full schedule of times and locations.
Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 8 a.m. Starts: June 6. Continues through June 15, 2008
