HOT BIKE TOUR 2017

What are Kick-Off Routes?

HOT BIKE Tour riders we will be riding in from all routes north, south, east, and west! For example, the guys at First Mfg Co. in Oceanside, NY, are throwing a HOT BIKE Tour Kick-Off Party tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 5. The next morning they will be hitting the road and headed south. Other rides and routes from all over the USA will be announced soon. Each of these rides will be joined by one of our editors and at least one of our invited Build-Off builders with various visits, parties and stops along the way. This will make it easy for you to join whichever of the many rides works best for YOU! Regardless if you join up with us or chart your own course we encourage you to share your journey with millions of people online by using the #HotBikeTour and #Longrider hashtags while riding to Johnson City.

You can keep up to date at www.hotbike.com/tour, or sign-up as a LongRider and we will send you direct updates regarding the many new ride options we have for this year. Routes will be shareable via the HOT BIKE Tour’s Rever app, and we will keep everyone connected via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
