Ohio Bike Week concludes on the North Coast

Ohio Bike Week concludes on the North Coast

Ohio Bike Week started as the North Coast Rally and Ohio State H.O.G. of 1999 and 2000. Local interest grew and in 2001 the rally continued as the North Coast Thunder Rally. In 2006 it was renamed Ohio Bike Week and the rally was combined with racing and entertainment. The rally was created to open up Northern Ohio as a diverse tourist destination.
