Summer Thunder Motorcycle Rally


The two-day Summer Thunder Rally officially starts on June 14th and runs through June 15th, 2013, but early birds may get a head start by purchasing Fun Run maps Memorial Day weekend at the Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce, participating taverns and Northwoods Harley-Davidson for $10. The Lakeland Tavern League presents three different Fun Runs with stops along the way. Get your map stamped at all 5 designated stops on the route for an entry in the prize drawing – three different Fun Runs, three maps, three entries in the prize drawing. Fun Run maps will also be on sale, starting Friday afternoon, at the Summer Thunder Hospitality Booth at Torpy Park. Great music is a large part of the rally. On Friday night, riders and townsfolk will enjoy refreshments and listen to live music by The Spicy Tie Band from 6-10pm in Torpy Park in downtown Minocqua. Saturday morning will kick off at Northwoods Harley-Davidson in Arbor Vitae at 9am. The Lakeland Area Kiwanis Club will have brats cooking on the grill until 2pm. The dealership will have demo rides and a Garage Sale with obsolete and closeout leathers, t-shirts, clothing and helmets. Stop by and stock up before embarking on a Fun Run. The Rally is expected to attract motorcyclists from all over the state and the Town of Minocqua welcomes its two-wheeled guests by providing an afternoon group ride at 5:30pm from the Minocqua Park Complex on Hwy 70 W to downtown Minocqua and Torpy Park where Tuscan Road will perform until 10pm. At 8pm, during a band break, on Saturday night over $1000 in cash and prizes will be awarded through Fun Run and raffle drawings. You must be present to win. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Lakeland Area Special Olympics. Held, rain or shine. After all, “If you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride.”
