Effective 2009, the city of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, will no longer host motorcycle rallies. The city even posted a website called; Myrtle Beach Biker Info/Laws.
The website opens with a letter from the Mayor of Myrtle Beach, John Rhodes, and his explanation of how it was such a tough decision and that residents were frustrated with congestion and noise during the rallies. He states that Myrtle Beach is not anti-biker, yet they had to dedicate a second page of the Myrtle Beach Biker Info/laws website to 13 new city rules and ordinances. However, we just recieved a press release from Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson stating, "We look forward to seeing all bikers for the Annual Spring Bike Week (May 8-17), in Horry County (everywhere but the city of Myrtle Beach).
